Strange but true!

(a new series)

Item 1
Overheard on 95 FM:

“Sehwag, Ganguly, Yuvraj and Tendulkar played the innings of their careers yesterday!”

[yes of course, because this could only be the logical culmination of the 30,000-odd runs they have between them]

Item 2
Someone telling the Picador editor at the Home Products book launch on Thursday: “This guy Amit is so cool! He’s a Bihari, so he writes his name as ‘Amitva’ on his book?!”

Item 3
Times of India headline yesterday:

“India take shorts off Bermuda”

[and here we were thinking the hyperbole might die down, at least for a few days. The HT headline was a more palatable “Bermuda bullied”]

Item 4
An email (part of an Orkut joint message) from someone I don’t know all that well (not that it would have made a difference even if it had come from a friend). Here it is, reproduced without comment:

It's "World Best Friends Week" send this to all ur good friends.
Even me, if I am one of them. See how many u get back.
If u get more than 5 u r really a lovable person.............I am waiting
F- Few
R- Relations
I - In
E - Earth
N -Never
D- Die

(to be continued)
