Australian Commentators are Funny. NOT.

"Today, I was watching the India-Srilanka match. But one thing was really sad to notice. Its fair to say that Australia is the best fielding side(because all 11 players good in the field now). But one must remember that 7-8 years ago, it was NOT the case. They always had slow or bad fielders, and also the fact is at that time South Africa, New Zealand and even Zimbabwe was considered to be best fielding sides. That was a run-out by Rohit Sharma, direct hit, that was a good fielding of course, he is a good fielder which is also true. Ian Healy and Mark Tailor were in the box. Ian Healy said "Oh, thats probably the best piece of fielding by Indians in the last 15 years or so". I would take it as just an 'exaggeration' or his 'non-awareness' of other good fieldings or his sheer ruthlessness when it comes to fielding. But immediately after he said that, he started laughing loudly and Tailor followed that as well.. There are so many commentators who I have lot

A Story: Ant and The Grasshopper

CLASSIC VERSION... The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter. The grasshopper thinks he's a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away. Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed. The grasshopper has no food or shelter so he dies out in the cold. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ MODERN VERSION... The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter. The grasshopper thinks he's a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away. Come winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while others are cold and starving.

Funny Story: How to successfully complete a Ph.D

Scene 1 ---------------------- It's a fine sunny day in the forest, and a rabbit is sitting outside his burrow, tippy-tapping on his typewriter. Along comes a fox, out for a walk. Fox "What are you working on?" Rabbit "My PhD thesis." Fox "Hmmm. What's it about?" Rabbit "Oh, I'm writing about how rabbits eat foxes." (incredulous pause) Fox "That's ridiculous! Any fool knows that rabbits don't eat foxes." Rabbit "Sure they do, and I can prove it. Come with me." They both disappear into the rabbit's burrow. After a few minutes, the rabbit returns, alone, to his typewriter and resumes typing. Scene 2: ---------------------- Soon, a wolf comes along and stops to watch the hardworking rabbit. Wolf "What's that you're writing?" Rabbit "I'm doing a thesis on how rabbits eat wolves." (loud guffaws) Wolf "You don't expect to get such rubbish published, do y

Cracking Funny Story: The Clever Old Rooster

A farmer went out one day and bought a brand new stud rooster for his chicken coop. The new rooster struts over to the old rooster and says, "OK old fart, time for you to retire." The old rooster replies, "Come on, surely you cannot handle ALL of these chickens. Look what it has done to me. Can't you just let me have the two old hens over in the corner? " The young rooster says, "Beat it: You are washed up and I am taking over." The old rooster says, "I tell you what, young stud. I will race you around the farmhouse. Whoever wins gets the exclusive domain over the entire chicken coop." The young rooster laughs. "You know you don't stand a chance, old man. So, just to be fair, I will give you a head start." The old rooster takes off running. About 15 seconds later the young rooster takes off running after him. They round the front porch of the farmhouse and the young rooster has closed the gap. He is only about 5 feet behind the
