My curious mind wants to ask you something again!

Yes, I am back with few more questions for you; the answers to which I have failed to get! And like always; I am looking for these answers from you. So people, get ready once again to answer my weird questions.
Ego! Don’t we all have it? Some have a huge one; some have not so huge one; but we all do have it. And when we pass a remark in general for the person of opposite sex, then god bless us; for the opposite sex person will react to it and attack you so bad that you regret why you were born!

I have been a victim of such an attack too; not once or twice but many times! Couple of days back, I had a status message on facebook which said:

It’s never too late to change the road you are on, unless you are a man and need directions!

And instead of taking it like a normal status message or a general saying, I got all possible reactions like irrelevant comments, comments denying my claim (as if I made any and it affected them personally!); while only female friends clicking the like button (according to the PB theory) and passed on some humorous comments!

Since I am a lawyer, I will not discriminate here between genders! Females react the same way as men when there is an attack on their sex too. Well when PB announced his latest discovery of like button publicly, ummm, females expressed their anger (minus the belan in their hands) too.
So one simple question – why can’t you all enjoy humour/message normally rather than reacting on it aggressively?

And the jokes! Most of us love them on others but when the same is on us; then those tantrums, anger, defensive attitude and even abuses come!

But there are few people who do take them lightly too! And they have only encouraged few of us to start a new blog KickAss. They keep providing us material on regular basis so that we can keep the spirit alive.

So another question – why do you crack a joke on someone if you can’t take it when it is on you?

Now comes a kind of people; rather bloggers specifically who simply fail to understand your post. I am not talking about posts on mechanical engineering theories or a surgery method and medicines used or a formula making in a lab (I will never even try and go on a 100% law related blog too! Phew, why bother here about law right) etc. But a short story where the writer has written something which is practically not possible!

Give them a break people! The lead character of their story is a superman/woman. He/she does not die even after falling from 15th floor. It is their story and their imagination. Let them write it. If you cannot digest it then do not leave a comment; simple.

If a person has written an awful story, you give your honest opinion. But when the person describes something which goes over the board for you; then fine! Don’t at least discourage the writer.

I want to know – what do you think about it? Why do you question on others’ imagination part?

Enough of ranting I guess. So let me put up few one liners here. Let’s see how well you can fake it! Yeah fake it; for most of you will not admit that you felt offended after reading a particular one-liner.

Laziness is a virtue which assists U in doing a job in minimum possible time with maximum possible efficiency!!!



A lot of good arguments are spoiled by some fool who knows what she's talking about!



People can be divided into three groups: Those who make things happen, those who watch things happen, and those who wonder what happened.


Some people are so two-faced, you just don't know which face to slap first!


Work is a fine thing if it doesn't take too much of your spare time!


Most of my Facebook friends are farmers, gangsters or cooks.


A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory!


Sometimes you'll never know the true value of a moment until it becomes a memory!


I've been told not to talk to strangers, but I talk to strange people every day.


I have heard that it is possible to grow up - I've just never met anyone who's actually done it.


the longer you stand back and watch an idiot, the more things they do to prove their stupidity!


It's not sarcasm..It's humor with attitude!!!


Its sad when talking to yourself is the most intelligent conversation you get in a day.


Sarcasm is the body's natural defense against stupid. Therefore, when I'm being sarcastic, you must be being stupid!


I think these many will last you for a month if you keep rotating them on your various accounts.


PS: It is upto you whether to answer my questions or not. Just remember this - you are on a lawyer's blog.

PPS: Do not ask me who PB is; for his identity has been kept confidential for security purposes. We do not want mobs outside his house to attack on him for his "Like Button" theory. Moreover, this theory will not be disclosed until PB acquires the Patent on it.

PPS: You can rant too; like me. I will/will not approve your comments depending on their nature.

  2. hahhaa.. loved ur post ...towards the end the humor was great...
    and especially loved the one with "Some people are so two-faced, you just don't know which face to slap first! ...that's a good one...
    also that most of my friends are farmers and gangsters..mine too....hahah :)

    now to the start of ur post... i totally agree with u...people sometimes dont get the humor of certain things and the issue is diverted to an all-together unwanted track...

  3. Just so loved it. :-)
    there are one set of people who could talk about themselves and crack jokes. They are the most virtuous; for they dont attack others and call it humor.

    And yes, most cant take in humor at least in our country. Imagine if someone made fun of the PM as they did on Mr Bush!! Ruckus everywhere

    And I loved all those lines..witty!!

  4. Sometimes you'll never know the true value of a moment until it becomes a memory! ..its true.

    Most of the people have sense of humour only if it is directed on others..very few have the ability to laughat themselves and taking criticism in a right manner comes to very rare people.

  5. I wonder how you come up with such unique posts every time!
    This is simply mind blowing. You've asked all the relevant questions. But you know, no matter how much we rant about it, those "precious" souls will never change.
    And it's so true about the reactions one gets upon a statement made by him/her regarding gender differences. The drama begins: "Are you a MCP? Are you a man hater? Are you a blah? Are you a blah blah? Are you a blah blah blah?" Such morons! I mean it's perfectly ok if those questions are asked in good humour, but most of them take it seriously.
    Awesome post, Neha! And those one liners in the end?! Damn good stuff. "It's not sarcasm..It's humour with attitude"
    Way to go! :-)

  6. Ha ha ha, Wow what a post!!
    I really liked it especially the things about BLOGGERS. I think whosoever runs a blog would have exactly the same views. We all writers and bloggers are desperate for comments and feedbacks, we love to share our thoughts and we want to get everyone's reaction, we don't mind criticism but com'on, we don't want discouragement. It's our passion to spill it over the tornado of our thoughts but we all need encouragement. Personally, I have found so many people on internet and the good thing is those are from different geographies, now I feel I have a connection with all and I love them all.
    Anyway, I enjoyed time spent on you r blog. Thanks !!

    Love & Peace

  8. Hello Neha

    Good questions.
    why can’t you all enjoy humour/message normally rather than reacting on it aggressively?

    The question should have been :

    why can't a section of you enjoy humour/message normally rather than reacting on it aggressively?

    i certainly can enjoy it. by the way , i am "a man and need directions!"

    Lols

    why do you crack a joke on someone if you can’t take it when it is on you?

    Absolutely. If u give "some".....then be prepared to take "some" too.

    If you cannot digest it then do not leave a comment; simple.

    Every blogger is entitled to his/her views. Same is true for commenters/readers. Why is it that some bloggers are so AFRAID of criticism.???? Of course criticism must be constructive not destructive.

    Cheers and a great post too.

  9. Yes Neha.. rightly said and I agree with you, I had a similar experience when I started to blog, the first few articles tht i wrote tocuhed some people who took a different view of it. I am wriitng my experiences, my views , what happened with me .. So no one should have a problem with that, if they dont like what happened then instead of making a excuse for it , they should just not come to my blog.. :)

    I really can feel what you wrote.. excellent.. And i loved your offliners they are very true.. But the one about three types of people .. i m sure there are more.. what about the ones Who tell you , you are wrong.. what about those who just watch-wondering what is going on-then saying its all wrong...

    I am not on facebook etc so dont know what sort of friends i wud make he hehe ..

    Clear conscious WHATS THAT.. we are Humans after all and we all do something silly every now on then..

    oh man i have written so much.. u r probably bored by now ...

    and ooops I did write a few shortcuts.. ha hah UR last article :)

  10. I dont know why the genders can't take a joke about them lightly. I often wonder why I can't :D
    And yes, some people just have to be rude. Wonder why...!

    Do let us know, when you finally get an answer ;)

    ReplyDelete
  11. wow, wonderful one liners. and the second question is so true in most cases. I guess people take themselves tooo seriously and are tooooo insecure to crack a joke on themselves.

    A stupid rarely calls himself a stupid and if he does then he isnt a stupid. So lets call each other stupid. TC Lovely post.:)

  13. Neha,impressed.
    How true--In the initial stages,I published my comment on a post and hell broke loose.Trust me,I volunteered and apologised and withdrew my comment.
    However,same blogger now doesn't mind doing exactly what he didn't like about my comment.

  14. Some people are so two-faced, you just don't know which face to slap first!


    laughing at that !

    It is always easy to laugh when the joke is on someone else. Add a dash of ego and some guilty conscience and people mistake a funny quote to be a statement about themselves or their ilk...

    Self deprecation is a virtue and therapeautic. So it would help if people were not wound up tight..

    So some PB on FB huhn ? Next a KickAss post ? ;-) . Hope PB is not reading this !

  15. Ha ha ....like that two faced one.

  16. You totally know my views on this! I agree a hundred thousand percent! :)
    Plus, according to me, a sense of humor is not the ability to crack smart jokes (read: make fun of others) but being able to take in stride when the same joke is on you! Great post as usual Neha, and you don't need to ask the questions, you actually have answered them all!
    Can I borrow your head for the ideas?! :D

  17. Just while i was about to type something intellectual I recalled this is a lawyers blog...:P

    we all love lawyers dont we...:P

    wait for my next post...lawyers ki bajata hoon...:P

    Some people are so two-faced, you just don't know which face to slap first!

    this one was ossum!!!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Hehe!! Laughed my head off!! i also feel that folks who cannot take it should not do it.. like joey says, Dont do the crime, if u cant take the time!! :P

    You proved ur Lawyer abilities once again!! super..!

    by the way.. here's my take on ur one-liners ( this make my comment equal to ur post!! )
    Laziness is a virtue which assists U in doing a job in minimum possible time with maximum possible efficiency!!! --- Loved it, approve it!!


    A lot of good arguments are spoiled by some fool who knows what she's talking about! -- LOL!! Seriously!!! Too many facts spoil the argument!


    People can be divided into three groups: Those who make things happen, those who watch things happen, and those who wonder what happened. – Gyan Gyan Gyan !! nice one


    Some people are so two-faced, you just don't know which face to slap first! - This one u put in FB..I “liked” it there!


    Work is a fine thing if it doesn't take too much of your spare time! - hehe. Ask me I am a victim!


    Most of my Facebook friends are farmers, gangsters or cooks. – Thank god, I am none!


    A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory! - Nice one, but cant it true because he/she doesn’t care about it also: P


    Sometimes you'll never know the true value of a moment until it becomes a memory! – So True! So true.


    I've been told not to talk to strangers, but I talk to strange people every day. - Well, strange people are the one’s u remember.


    I have heard that it is possible to grow up - I've just never met anyone who's actually done it. – I Guess so!!


    the longer you stand back and watch an idiot, the more things they do to prove their stupidity! - lol!! KCR just proved it!!


    It's not sarcasm..It's humor with attitude!!! - WOAH!! This is the best one!


    Its sad when talking to yourself is the most intelligent conversation you get in a day. – Well… its always better than talkin to people who never make sense!


    Sarcasm is the body's natural defense against stupid. Therefore, when I'm being sarcastic, you must be being stupid! - Attitude!! ;)

  19. We all have some ego and probably thats what makes human beings interesting!!

  20. Very thought provoking post. Did not write my comments immediately because
    I wanted to think about it for sometime.

    There are many people enjoy humor. Only a very few react the way you
    described for a “real” joke. There are occasions when someone thinks it’s a
    joke and tells it but really is offensive. For example, a racial joke or a
    gender joke.

    Of course, there are some people who will crack jokes about others but will
    not be able to take a joke. Those people should not crack jokes about others.

    If a reader fails to understand a post, there could be a reason that the writer did not write well also. One blogger wrote that he was going to get a DD. I had no idea what a DD is. I asked him through my comment. He thought I was a stupid guy. I came to know it is a “Demand Draft” which in USA known as “Cashier’s Check”. He should have put a pre-warning that his blog is meant only for people who are familiar with the Indian lingo. Or, he should have answered my question only. And, not make an indirect remark that I am a stupid guy.

    Some people may want to comment if the “imagination” defies logic. Many bloggers want only “accolades and praise” in the comment column. They do not want any criticism. As President Harry Truman said: If you cannot stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.

    I concur with Insignia, my guru. Americans enjoy jokes a lot. Mrs. Laura Bush once joked in a speech as follows: Everyday at the White House, when it is 9 PM, Mr. Excitement (Bush) here is sound asleep and I am watching Desperate Housewives. A pause. Then said: With Lynne Cheney. Ladies and Gentlemen, I am a desperate Housewife.

    I love your one liners. I have a one liner…rather a two liner. Who said nothing is impossible. I have been doing nothing for the last 20 years.

  21. Danggg! The one thing I wanted to ask while going thru the post... and the very one thing u said u will not tell! The "Like" theory of PB. I don't want to know who PB is... but the theory... plz tell me the theory yaar! If u can't disclose on ur blog, then at least tell me privately on chat! Nahin to... curiosity will kill the cat re!
    Btw, I will use some of these one-liners in the "you-know-what". oh never mind... we'll discuss all that on chat. C u...

  22. @ sm, thanks..:)

    @ Neha, these all have been my facebook status updates of the last month :D I too feel that people should take quotes and one-lines in humorous manner only...why spam others comment box na..:)

    @ Insignia, so very true...the safest thin to do is - crack a joke on your own self..glad you liked those one-liners :)

    @ Antarman, i totally agree with you..very few can laugh at themselves..

    @ Karthik, thank you for the compliment (at least I am taking it as one :P)..I have seen many people reacting very violently on certain humorous one-liners..the one liner u have mentioned is my personal favourite :D

    @ Vivek, welcome here..thank u for your comments...I am glad you liked the post..I agree with most of your points..but I feel we should blog for ourselves rather than for comments..about criticism; it is upto us how we take it :) blog is a wonderful place to socialize :)

    @ Ste, my partner in crime :P
    you had to like the post :D I know all about ms...and Munnabhai, PB theory will be revealed on your blog officially soon :P :D

    @ IP, I have not a single person on my blog or friends list who has taken humour humourously..thus I have used all :) but you seem to be an exception..so well will be careful next time :)
    about blog comments, you have slightly misunderstood my point..i am not saying that criticism is wrong..but people do not know how to criticize..I feel you should call someone a bad writer only if you know how to write well..correct me if i am wrong.. that's my point here..glad you liked the post :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. @ Bikram, you hit the nail on the head..we blog for ourselves..but I feel; let people comment..we should not bother about what they say right..just blog away :) i quite liked ur take on the one liners..bored of your comment? not at all..in fact i am happy that you read my post carefully and remembered my earlier write up too :)

    @ DC, hahahaha..glad you at least admit that..you will be the first to know when i find the answers :)

    @ ZB, yeah, some people take things too seriously na...glad you liked the post...and lol @ the stupid funda..:D

    @ PB, sure sure...pretty soon :D

    @ BK Chowla, people are such hypocrites na..blog what you feel like..it's your space after all :)

    @ Madhu, glad you liked that...and your points - you described it so aptly..PB has commented here...upar dekho :D

    @ Haddock, thanks :)

    @ G, you borrow my head and gimme yours...I wanna be Mav too :D

    @ Ravan, yeah, intellectual stuff is already present here..so nothing extra to add :D eagerly waiting for ur next post..let's see how well I can take a joke on myself :P

    @ Rammy, Glad you liked the post...and even more glad that you liked the one-liners and commented on each of them..thanks :))

    @ SG, my post made you think..oh my, I take this as a big compliment..I have seen many reacting to humour in a serious manner..so i have merely expressed my opinion here..as I mentioned in the post; I am not talking about complex posts here..there are people who fail to understand even simplest of the post..this disappoints the writer..very nice two-liner :)

    @ Kaddu, kal mil online shaam ko...will explain you the theory...and use the one-liners there ok :P :D

  24. Please do it fast. you have good fan following and anything enhancing my popularity is welcome.

    Btw, I am reading all the comments daily. I am enjoying each comment. Some comments are really good. Some are quite intellectual types and I could not figure out which side it shot.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Thanks Neha. "Fail to understand even simplest of the post". The writer may think it is simple because the writer already knows what he/she is going to write. A reader may find it difficult to understand.

    For example, if I write "I took the BART to go to work", it is very simple for me because I know what is meant by BART. Many readers would not know what is meant by BART. I should not say my readers do not understand even the simplest of my post".

    ReplyDelete
  26. @ PB, no fan following for me re...there are around 10 readers who read my posts regularly..so I am not so popular :) and the post will be a surprise for you I guess...it can come anywhere on blogsphere :D

    @ Ramesh, hey :)

    @ SG, as i mentioned earlier, I am not talking about posts with technical terms or different lingo..my point is simple here.. for example; I write,

    "My only hope to pass my test was to catch the 09:50:00 train..I reached the station and saw my hope waving me goodbye..the time on the digital clock read 9:50:30..I had failed even before I could appear for my test"

    and people ask me - are you trying to say that you missed the train?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Thanks Neha. Now I understand.

    ReplyDelete
  28. @ SG, yeah..I have come across many people like this..not only on my blog, but on other blogs too..you are lucky that you have not yet got a chance to claim what i do in this post :D

  30. Hey,
    Great Post. Great One liners.
    Especially,

    "I have heard that it is possible to grow up - I've just never met anyone who's actually done it."

    I was wondering too about blogs and blogging etiquette. I feel blogs themselves should be categorized. If you prefer not to be criticized, then blog only on safe subjects. If you are writing a post to question someone's intelligence and integrity, then you need to be prepared for the criticism. If you are blogging about incidents in your life, then you get comments regarding similar incidents that blogger wants to share. If you write humour , everyone likes to read and pass on or put in a nice comment. If its a creative blog, then it definitely needs to be open to criticism.

    But just out of curiosity, I would like to read the story though. :)

    Well, these are just my views. You needn't even approve it if you don't want. :)

    P.S : I am a fan of one liners and keep looking for them to post as my status message.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Totally loved it Neha. All the above one-liners are simply amazing :) And this one is a total bull's eye--> "A lot of good arguments are spoiled by some fool who knows what she's talking about!" and when people cannot counter attack you with proper point to justify, they fell you go 'blah blah blah'..such morons! Idiots! As for Man Vs Woman stuff, One, people should not differentiate and when they do, I guess it should be done in good humor..if a person is humorous enough to put up such status msgs, then he/she must be sport enough to take the reactions with a pinch of salt...otherwise, it is wise to avoid posting such statuses and making a total fool out of oneself and later go sulking about it!
