In a Nutshell

   

Puswedilla?

The committee that works of the aliyas ended with the ginger group giving up its fight. "You want to be the leader of the party yava jeewa" they grunted,  having failed to dislodged big boss. Sniff! Sniff! 

Mum's the word

And there was more nitpicking.  Determined to sweep the rug clean Lucky suddenly recalled that  a printing press donated by a former aliya stalwart and Colombo mayor had been sold to the brother of the audi clan.  "What happened to the 40 million smackers?" they cried.  The two who engineered the sale Irwin of advertising fame and Bored-hee Runner Lion kept mum.  So its anybody's guess, or what? 

feigning innocence

Our depositors list has everyone a-guessing.  This week as we tinkled the green and blue types who had also dumped a few millions in the company that is now kaput, ole Ranjith of Matale was keen to know who else of his brethren were on the list. Buy this ole rag come Sunday we told him as he whispered breathlessly that he did not even know who on earth had dumped a few smackers in his name in the key that once was all but golden. 

 A two  way tax

The government taxes were pass‚ last week but not before a member of the red guard, Anura Dissa quipped even beggars are being taxed.  Apart from taxing food people consume very soon there will be a tax on those loo pans too he quipped saying we will all have to pay not only for what we consume but also for what we pass! Ugh. 

Hypocrites

And the robed kind saw red at a recent pow-wow with some hacks of the fourth estate. One wild ass jumped up and asked since thou was the first to introduce the mathata thitha concept why not stop alcohol consumption at the araliya abode too? Athu -raliya did not see the funny side and demanded the hack meet him outside later.  The hack refused.  To which the thero yelled at him never ever, ever again to step foot in another pow-wow he called with those of the fourth estate.  Oh Dear! 

Quick work

While on the subject of those from the fourth estate, a little bird whispers that a hack from the selahiniya who had been taken to cover our resounding victories of the military kind had instead stepped into a captured lair and stolen no less than five laptops and 10 digital cameras that belonged to the striped kind!  He was caught red-handed at middle wachiya where he was held for hours before being released on humanitarian grounds!!  Shame! Shame!
