Climate change explained

Overheard in office, a Mallu colleague berating a TamBram.

"It's because of you people only."
"What did we do?"
"See, why is there no rain in Tamil Nadu or...Bihar or Rajasthan?"
"How are we related to that?"
"You vegetarians, you cut down all the trees and eat them. Whereas in Kerala, we eat meat all the time, and that is why there are so many trees and so much greenery and rainfall. We are saving the environment."

Tree-eating vegetarians, shame on you for destroying the environment.

Good Lord, you should be shot for putting this up.

But since I'm a believer in non violence, I'll accept a month's pay check of yours, in lieu of the shooting gallery.

Sandeep said...

Is this supposed to be funny?

What is the matter with you?

Arjun said...

[Joe] Why? You don't like Mallu-TamBram humour?

I might not be getting my monthly paycheck this month. Like hell I'm going to give anything to you. Unless you're willing to settle for affection and general humanitarian warmth.

[Sandeep] Aww.

Joe said...

Firstly that is a gross misrepresentation of the word Humour.

Secondly, with jokes like these, small wonder. I hope your boss is a tam bram who whips your ass.

Thirdly, if I wanted affection and warmth, I'd have bought a dog.

Arjun said...

[Joe] Who said this was humour? Real life incident. Chilled me to the bone.

No, my boss isn't a TamBram.

Oh you don't have a dog? Sandeep here is available. I hear he licks particularly well.

Joe said...

Chilled to the point where your blog entry froze? Nice excuse, but not working.


I prefer felines. If we are to go by that which we are particularly good at, by all accounts, you should be a hobbit, no?

Arjun said...

What is a hobbit good at? Returning jewellery?

Joe said...

What is a hobbit good at? - Nothing.

I rest my case!

Arjun said...

Hobbits kill giant spiders. And throw people into volcanoes. And have weird names like "Gamgee."

ಒಳ್ಳೇ ವಿದೂಷಕ.

Again, why is all this male love and affection being dispayed?

BTW, interesting conversation.

CHEEKU said...

SEE, this is what I meant. Hilarious! SO was your post mister.
Chill :)

Sandeep said...

What's with the testiness?

Joe said...

Yeah Arjun, what's with the testes? :D

Arjun said...

[Parisarapremi] Houdu, nam Jayanth thara.

[being purple] We all have man-crushes on each other.

Which conversation?

[CHEEKU] You chill.

Heh, I'm sufficiently chilled.

[Sandeep] Yeah, I'm a little testy these days.

[Joe] Yeah, they sort of just grew. Like weeds.

Malaveeka said...

The most effective way to fight the global warming crisis is to stop eating meat, eggs, and dairy products.

Which proves the TamBrahm right.

Joe said...

In other words, suicide. :)

Arjun said...

[Malaveeka] That site seems to have been set up by Pulihoram Parthasarathy Ayyangar.

[Joe] Heh, I wouldn't go that far, Joe.
