Desi Fun

November 2010

1. A BBC cameraman at the Commonwealth Games in Delhi was attacked by a monkey that was being used to scare away other monkeys.

2. A British girl of Indian origin won the title of “America’s Perfect Teen.”

3. Two journalists of South Asian origin anchored an episode of ESPN’s SportsCenter.

4. A New Zealand television host was suspended for making fun of Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit’s name.

5. More than 100 businessmen in Aurangabad, Maharashtra, ordered Mercedes Benz cars simultaneously to bring attention to their city.

(All five really happened)


Jokes about Chuck Norris’s superhuman abilities have been circulating the internet for years, but they may soon be outnumbered by jokes about Tamil superstar Rajinikanth’s powers. Here are some of the better ones:

 Genies rub Rajinikanth and he grants them three wishes.
 Rajnikanth doesn't wear a watch. He decides what time it is.
 Rajinikanth doesn't turn the lights on. He turns the dark off.
 Rajinikanth got small pox when he was a kid. As a result, small pox was eradicated.
 Now there's a new email ID. It's
 When Rajinikanth does push-ups, he isn't lifting himself up. He is pushing the earth down.
 Rajinikanth does not style his hair. It lies perfectly in place out of sheer terror.
 If at first you don't succeed, you're not Rajinikanth.
 Once a cobra bit Rajinikanth's leg. After five days of excruciating pain, the cobra died.
 Rajinikanth's calendar goes straight from March 31 to April 2; no one fools Rajinikanth.
