little dummy move on the Dee Eel Bee, accusing stares and barbs were
being directed all over. And some were coming unlucky Kadiís way.
The story was that the unlucky one journeyed all the way to Nuwara
Eliya with Mangy boy on tow to impress upon the good lady that the
board should be taken over, and should be taken over now.
Now that the move has
spiralled over and beyond unlucky Kadiís head, he sang a different
tune. Meeting an acquaintance he said he only "went to Nuwara
Eliya to brief her on the Numbiar report and got sucked into
Talk of letting the
side down. Tch! Tch!
The Clown Prince was on
a PR job of sorts recently. Appro- aching the chief opposing one he
said that the two should put aside all differences and work together.
"But we donít have any differences, no," came the very
With all the
competition on the nomination for the next presidential contest in
mind, Clown Prince mumbled that it was about leadership: "if I
become number one, you will be number two, and get all you ask
for" he assured.
With a life long habit
of counting the chickens before the hatching, the Clown Prince always
ends up with egg on the face and here was yet another example, the
opposing oneís sidekicks were heard commenting. Clown all right.
Satellite was not in a
happy mood last week. She was particularly piqued with all the foreign
birds landing paradise way to settle problems. So it was with Norseman
Peter the Sun. When he flew over to get the peace mouths talking, he
sought an appointment with Satellite.
No can do, was the very
curt reply. The Norsemen should know better that they had not given
her adequate time to slot the Sun in. She needs at least three weeks
prior notice, and the bogged down peace moves were not reason enough

The lady is so, so,
busy doing...what? Hmm...
Despite the tete a

the way things are going. Aumunu, the one from the hills got a taste
of the distaste when he approached one of the Red types soon after the
Dee Eel Bee saga to ask for support for public protests. "Havenít
you guys done enough damage?" was the answer. Now is that a yes
or a no?
The green committee
that is working was taking up the issue of allegations of corruption
and abuse when Ra-kneel intervened. He spoke of the allegations
against Johnny Boy, the sporting one and said that there was no truth
in them and the poor fella was innocent all along.
quip however had two ministering angels going red, Dr JJ and Boggles
ó the two angels who have had allegations right, left and center. So
we guess those naughty allegations still stand, eh?
And talking of Boggles,
here is the story of one too short. Recently the em pees were sending
the hat around to get a matrimonial gift for the Golden Lover from
Katane at the House by the Diyawanna. And the hat went around 50 em
pees and ended up with Rs 49,900.
Last man poor Boggles
was short of Rs 100.
What with the banks
breathing down his neck for loan repayments, who can blame him eh!
