No show

The Thulawa programme on EI TEE EN that is forever tipping the scales in government's favour suffered a sudden calamity on Thursday eve, all because of the inclusion of a name that is sour to the powers that be. Once the blue camp nominated secy gen Mai-three for the show, the green camp too was requested to send a name in. But the name Sri-pathi gave the Thulawa team the jitters and pronto, the show was cancelled. Tch! Tch!

Detective

The Prez does like to speak about issues of corruption on occasion and when the cupboard meeting got underway last week, he spoke not just of blue corruption but also green. The grandiose claim was

 

 

that green secy Atta- Leader has recently bought a house for 40 million smackers straight. But the ministering angels wanted to know whether there was proof and the Prez without batting an eyelid claimed, yes there was, and it came via fax. Aha!  

The boycott

It is either war or cricket that saves Ma-hinder. With Murali being crowned spin king, invites went out to his entire family to attend a do at the Presidential Palace Saturday eve. But Murali Senior stood his ground and said sonna boy and family were free to break bread with Prez, but he sure would not. Finally, emotional pressure was resorted to, forcing Senior to attend the do. Now now did someone say doosra?

 

Sailor Boy

As the cost of living soars, it is as if the

Prez too has grown wings. He will soon fly to the Land of the Rising Sun and from there to London Town to play pappa as sonna boy graduates from Dartmouth. We the Leading types too send our congratulations on board Mihin to the sailor boy. All ahoy! 

Seeing red

The Red brethren who celebrated their heroes last month had an exhibition where on display was a map marked with territory that came under their control for days in the two bloody insurgencies. When Mano G of CMC fame demanded to know at the House by the Diyawanna whether the JVP types came into control areas by being elected or at the point of a galkatas, the Reds could only hang down their heads. Shame no!
