Don't misunderestimate the power of tag

I was tagged by Mary Poppins. Rules of the tag are:
  • Say who tagged you
  • Say eight things about yourself
  • Tag 6 people
You see, I do want to do the tag, but most people know a lot about me already. Everybody knows (1) I am from India and careful observers must have already guessed (2) I am from the Southern part of India. It's not difficult to perceive that (3) I have at least one son and (4) at least one wife. Of course, everybody who recognizes Alfred E. Neumann knows (5) I am a fan of Mad magazine, from where I derive most of my juvenile sense of humor. I could say (6) I play a bit of Piano but nobody cares as long as they don't have to hear it. I am not going to announce to the world that (7) I am a huge fan of Frasier, because every time I say it people are asking me, "What are you, like 60?" When (8) I say my favorite author is P.G.Woodhouse, people who know me too well nod their head understandingly and ask, "Does he write good porn?" So what's the point in saying that either?

If I had done the tag, I would've tagged: Anand, Ekta, Casement, Nithya, Anu and Free Spirit (hoping they haven't done this specific tag yet).

As you can see there is nothing interesting to say about me. So I thought what's the fun in doing the tag as yourself? Why don't I do the tag as somebody famous? Like, say, our beloved president, George W. Bush!

So here is how Georgie boy would do the tag:

  1. Tony Blair and I have pajama parties and pillow fights. We exchange hand-woven sweaters too
  2. I bed-wet some times. It's not my fault. I can't get hold of Condi in the middle of night some times to get permission to go to bathroom.
  3. My wife keeps collecting weird stuff. She has about a 1000 "I am with stupid" T-Shirts
  4. I am the most intelligent man in the world. Last time I took the IQ test, the result came back as "Your IQ is not in the range of 50-220." Whoohoo.
  5. I am very tolerant of other religions. Just to prove the point, I agreed to be the recipient of some Jewish honor at this party a guy named Mohel is throwing.
  6. A lot of people confuse me for the CEO of Coca-Cola. They keep calling me "Coke Head"
  7. Right now I am at my ranch in Crawford, "working" from home *wink* *wink*
  8. I speak fluent English and Mexican
I tag:
  • Dick Cheney (Or he will spank me)
  • Kenny boy
  • Saudi King Fahd bin Abdul Aziz
  • President of Canada, Stephen Harper
  • That governor general dame from New Zealand
  • How can I forget you darling, Tony Blair


  • *I bed-wet some times. It's not my fault. I can't get hold of Condi in the middle of night some times to get permission to go to bathroom*

    hahah...superb take on him!
    Damn I need to start reading MAD mag as get the SOH!

    Bush is so much fun to write about. I did a piece on him once. Do read it!

    PS- PG Woodhouse rocks. Jeeves and Wooster always crack me up.

  • anand:
    I know from your blog that you have a very healthy sense of humor. Don't read MAD. It will only contaminate yours :)

    I read your piece. That's a good one

    la vida loca:
    Ya, I am a sucker for Brit comedies... Yes Minister, Faulty Towers etc.

    I hope you got the reference to latest sweater banter Bush and Tony did which got accidentally caught by a mic

    Dubya is funniest when he is unscripted. Why ruin that fun ;)

    Hope you passed on the URL to them :)

    ekta, perspective inc.:
    Thanks guys!

  • Poor Kenny boy, he left before he could the tag. Inspite of that Georgie asked him to tag, just to prove that he had no connection with him.

    So Georgie got over the lust for 'Angela' that he didn't tag her ?

    By Blogger greensatya, at Wed Aug 09, 01:45:00 AM 2006  

  • LOL@ Twisted're right about Dubya unscripted ;-) We saw that at the G8 this year!

  • hahaa...nice...

    lol@ P.G.Woodhouse and "Does he write good porn?"...and hey wouldn't he tag condi too?

  • how GWB missed tagging his fav peoples in this world kim jong/ osamama/ howard stern??

  • LMFAO... That was amazin dude.. Couldn stop laughin

  • greensatya:
    "just to prove that he had no connection with him"
    LOL. Good one. About Angela, she has a restraining order against Dubya now ;)

    He didn't tag Condi because if he's been a bad boy he is hoping she would spank him :)

    Dubya and Osama are not talking now, after Osama refused to share his 72 virgins wint Dubya. Howard Stern accepts tags only from half-nakded lesbian midgets. GWB wanted to tag Kim Jong but he didn't know how to spell his name :)

    Thanks apy!

  • Hey...that's STEVE Harper from Canada, dude!
    His momma don't like it, but that's what Dubya calls him.

    "I am a huge fan of Frasier, because every time I say it people are asking me, "What, are you like 60?""

    (I guess I'm 60 as well. I love Frasier. I think I'm going to retire any minute.)

  • mary poppins:
    Thanks for tagging me :)

    Thanks. "Cool" is not frequently used to describe my sense of humor, or for that matter, any aspect of me :)

    Glad to meet a fellow Frasier fan!

    Ya, but not many people get to spend 80% of their job-time on Texas ranches!

    starry nights:
    he he. I liked the pillow fights part myself. it is out of the anger because those two guys are in bed so much and screwing the world

    Thanks so much :)

    "Do keep writing"
    Are you sure? ;)

    spider girl:
    "George and Tony look so gosh darn cute together."
    So true. Just imagine them in pink flowery gowns, they will look even better :)

    Will be waiting for your tag

    All I need is this kind of encouragement. Thank you!

    white forest:
    Thanks for visiting this blog :)

    Why do you think I write the blog anonymously ;)

    Thanks neihal!
