More from the notable-sentences-in-newspapers department

"A fake gay can’t resist himself when a hot babe passes by"


"He won’t abuse in a macho manner"

[from a story in HT City titled “How to Spot a Faux Gay”. Love the "can't resist himself" bit - conjures up visions of a battalion of fake gays dry-humping each time a "hot babe" passes by]

: It is believed that Shantaram is a fictional autobiography.

Gregory David Roberts
: It was believed that the world was flat but it isn’t. Similarly, Shantaram is not an autobiography but a novel.

: But it is written in first person.

[Interviewer should read Murakami’s Hard-Boiled Wonderland and The End of the World and other such works that were also written in the first person.]

And from a 2-column snippet on Priyanka Chopra in Delhi Times:

"Incredibly, she loves sci-fi and horror movies too. So, the next time you hear earth-shattering screams from Priyanka’s house, you’ll know the reason, right?"

[Um… because she’s reading the Delhi Times?]

  1. So true , I wonder why do we tolerate a nuisance such as Delhi Times. The answer is tabloid Journalism ,unfortunately in India we are progressing to a new stage called literary tabloid Journalism.

    P.S. I wonder if the screams coming from her house were recorded by DT for examination as to what kind of movie was being watched.
