‘Paul’um Pazhamum. What the Octofcuk is this?

The world can be divided into people who know Paul the psychic Octopus and people who dont, after the Football World Cup ended. Paul recently even got a honorary Spanish citizenship. I caught with Paul and asked a few questions which are in tune with the very existence of this world.

Question no:1

What’s more important to the existence of the world rather than my Chartered Accountancy course? So I asked Paul whether I would get through CA or end up stealing double CA’s i.e CACA’s (crow)  ammavasai (no moon day) offering.
He answered “Only the cold days” How inappropriate was that?

Question no:2
I got worked up when Paul answered it like an ass, that is my birth right! I even thought of becoming a non-vegetarian! I asked  if we would chop his tentacles and make a soup of it, will it be called Octokaal soup? (kaal in Tamil means foot)

Once again the answer was “Only the cold days”. Okay this is getting really annoying but he does have a point. We have soup usually when the weather is cold, dont we? So I will take that as a yes and it is “Octokaal Soup”

Question no:3
Now Octopaul is losing his credibility, giving the same answer. Hence I asked him that if I asked him any question will he answer “only the cold days”.
3 He answered that someone actually beat me to this question and asked him the same yesterday and that he would answer the same.

Question no:4
I wanted to give the poor thing a second chance and warm him up for something great. I asked him a question whether he has 8 tentacles because only 6 were visible.
2 Voila he answered it right!

Question no:5
He is now ready for the most important question in the history of the mankind which has been haunting the most intelligent of the minds, The Mystery of the missing Vaazha Pazham (Banana) Once upon a time there lived and still is alive a Tamil comedian by the name Goundamani who is known for his decibel level and kicking skill against his sidekick Sendhil. On one fine day Gounder asked Sendhil to buy him 2 vaazha pazhams (bananas)  But Sendhil gave Gounder only one Vaazha Pazham. When asked by Gounder where was the other one Sendhil answered “ Ithu dhaan anne adhu”/ “This is the other one/”Yeh doosra hai”. Gounder tried every trick in the bag but for pulling the octopus out of the hat. He even tried frisking Muralidaran for the doosra. So I asked Octopaul about it.
The puzzle has been solved. It was Octopaul after all the octofuss. Now the old Tamil song “Paulum Pazhamum” has taken a new meaning. Now that the mystery is solved Gounder can die peacefully and Sendhil need not live the guilt the entire life!

Wish – Blog-a-ton- 12

9 blesses 'n' curses
This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 12; the twelfth edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton.

A wish can be interpreted in two ways or may be even more. One way is wishing for stuff both tangible and intangible. If I start writing about these wishes, it wouldn’t end for eternity. So I am not going into all of this. The other one is wishing others. This may be a “Good morning” tweet or a “Good Night” tweet which gets endlessly tweeted and retweeted or wishing someone else at college or at work place.

But “wishing” has taken a new level with “Politicians” and “Film stars” Let us take an example of a politician.


This wish is for Mr S. Ramadoss the above wish is loosely translated into English as PrayingO bright light of the Thamizh race (also rays Winking) Please come! Please come!Not worthy


After the highness himself, it’s the rising son Mr Anbumani Ramadoss. Oops was I politically incorrect because Sun is the symbol of another party Confused Here is how he is wished “O! Our prince! Please come! Please come!”

[Note: His name has been murdered by the north Indian news readers as “Ambumanni Ramdoss” Anbu means love and ambu means “arrow”. So please dont say it that way. He is not Ramadoss and he is Anbumani. Ramadoss is his father]



Now This is how people wish film Stars. They call them “Thala” which means head or simply head of all operations. Every film star has his nickname which praises him. Vijay is wished as “ilaiya Thalapathy” / Young leader, Vijaykanth as “Captain”, Kamal Hasan as “Universal Hero”, Rajini as “Thalaivar” / Leader. Even the newbie have their own nickname, for e.g they are called “rising star” or he is added with prefix “young” along with existing big hero he resembles . The big heroes get a free milk abhishekam. That is the bonus of being a big hero.

So that is it! I have summed all the wishes i have noticed. If you have anything else to add please do so in the comments section. I would like to read those  comments Big Grin

An argument on and off sidelines

6 blesses 'n' curses

Offside Rule has been creating a lot of ripples perhaps waves in the game of football for a long time. This Worldcup is no exception. During one such game at the world cup a goal was disallowed and ruled offside. The commentators started screaming “ Oh its Offside or is it!” and these 2 guys, Batmanaban and Baalu were confused.

Batmanaban aka Bat : Machi (dude) what is this offside rule da?(yaar) Confused

Baalu aka Ball : Its nothing da if the player is running on the offside it is called offside da.

Bat: So you cant score from an offside position it seems. What about onside?

Ball: Who said? We can score. But you need have a very good technique to score, just like cricket. Only technical players are allowed!

Bat: Oh! ok da but what about onside?

Ball: If you are onside everyone is allowed to score. Football is totally like cricket. Sloggers always score in the onside! So everyone is allowed to score from onside.

Bat: How da? Can you enumerate da?

Ball: In cricket there is a fine leg and in football the dribbling midfielder has fine legs. You have slips to catch the edges, likewise if the ball slips the defensive midfielder recovers it. See you get it? Simple da Machi!


Bat: Ok I am going by your word because you know some football da.

Ball: But i have one confusion da whether it changes with Right-footer and Left-footer. This rule is very uncertain and dubious da!

Baalu’s Bro Footbaalu : Machi! Yes da. I have fair share of my doubts whether you have brain or not. Smug

Bat: Stupid! What do you want?Angry

Footbaalu : *Draws a diagram and explains* See this is offside!

Ball: Poda!! you split in a vertical way and I split in a horizontal way. What is the difference?

Bat: Yes he caught the point. Machi you are right leave him.

Footbaalu: DohI dont knowNot talking

Ball: You know one thing da. There are only two teams in Football others are just add ons da. They are Brazil and Argentina da. If its club football then there is only one team Man Utd and the oppositions change from time to time

Bat: Surprise i see, that is why everyone support them.

Ball: Didnt i tell you? Cool

Footbaalu: Not worthy Some things never change! I cant help but laugh LaughingRolling on the floor


P.S  The above conversation is a figment of fiction. But i have heard even heard worse than this. Like: Cristiano Ronaldo played for England when he played for Manchester United because it was an English club.
