Sadly shameless and petulant again. And pointless.

Those of you who've recently read my other blog (yes, this is a shameless plug) will have guessed that I'm intimidated by erudite intellectuals such as this gentleman. So I was much reassured when I met Vivek online and he said that this video is a close parallel. As the Great One has taught us to say, fun comes. Muchly. [1].

Related thought - say what you will about the USA, they have Letterman, Leno, Conan, Colbert. What do we have? Raju Srivastava and Cyrus Broacha. And (perhaps in unintended fashion) K-K-K-KBC.

But we do have a thriving industry in sex-publishing. Check out the ToI-late Paper supplements. Any day of the week and twice on Saturdays. After such knowledge, what forgiveness?

Saturday morning leavened by a set of puns from a Dignified Friend. The pick of the bunch being -
"Banning the bra was a big flop"
"A man needs a mistress just to break the monogamy"
"Without geometry, life is pointless"
and rather more profoundly,
Electricity comes from electrons. Does morality comes from morons?"

And a question - why do the Floggy Ladies suggest that my blog should be shut down? I am mystified. And further intimidated. Not least by the possibility of Bole, iskey saath kya Sallu kiya jaaye? (I know, very ouch, but whattodo, Saturday and all that.)

Just in case you thought I could only do links, this proves I can do footnotes too. Relevance is an optional extra.

**** ****

Floggy ladies are taking out their frustrations about their deprived childhoods, possibly filled with incest and animal torture.

And when their husbands go out to work, they need something to entertain themselves with. Forgive them for their brainlessness.

You're a good writer, sir. Take a bow. Let the bitches bark.

Shameless, petulant and pointless. What more can you ask for?

Colbert I'd take (even he can be grating at times). But Letterman, Leno and Conan?

Let's just say that their combined worth is not equal to the pinky finger that rests below the twitching nose of Rowan Atkinson. Throw in a John Cleese and a Hugh Laurie, and suddenly American television is one big wasteland.

Raju Shrivastava has his moments. He has potential, though it rarely seems to surface.

The true earthy standup talent in the subcontinent, before he became a lousy, insipid sell-out was Omar Sharif. Witness -
