I blame democracy. And it’s even kind of funny.
There are these groups of people [politicos] who fight for the freedom of speech, the freedom of expression and there are the other groups who cry foul when someone takes a shot at them. You wanna know about the freedom of speech? Post this is in a public forum
"My god when is he gonna retire?"
Believe me. You don’t even need to mention the name. The moment you hit enter – BOOM..! There will be millions [unless you post this in Google+] of people literally waiting to kick you in your nuts and equal amount putting forth their opinion on why the person concerned should retire. Enough said about dealing with an individual's opinion.
Caricatures and politics go a long way. I have always enjoyed caricatures. I have also tried my hand at coming up with captions for stick figures. They have been there, ruling the tabloids from time immemorial. Leave out politics. We students have always been good at graffitis. Engineering drawing boards, public toilets, trains, busses - you get it right? We practice a lot that we actually become good at caricatures.
All of a sudden, out of nowhere, it becomes offensive. Beats me.! Sense of humour is not about being witty all the time. Come on. We are no Chandler Bing [bows and touches feet] I have said this before and I say it again. It’s the ability to laugh at oneself. That’s what we wannabe comics do. Learn from us. We blog about a bad day at the office, how we got humiliated in front of a hip chick just to make you guys laugh. Make you people feel better. Even if you don’t laugh, you’ll definitely feel better that my life SUCKS just like yours. Personally, in my opinion, there is nothing wrong. Easy for you to say, you think. No. I say this after giving it a considerable amount of thought. There are these really funny caricatures that make you laugh and there are the other varieties, with swear words, busting cleavages and a couple of bhenChods/Madarchods here and there. Yeah! I know. They do make you frown. You know what. These journos ruin it for everybody else.
And btw, you are totally welcome if you are willing to spend your time to come up with a caricature mocking me. I have a very high threshold for crap. Yeah! I’m blessed in that way.
And what's the procedure to sue this guy? He stole my best move. What? Why are you laughing? I put in all the hard work and come up with a killer step which would have put MJ to shame. This guy swoops in dancing with Asian chicks. What am I? A fool, huh.?Thy shall not rest until I get him arrested. Damn.!
Keep mocking. Keep laughing. ;-)
