In A Nutshell

Sep 18, 2010 2:30:26 PM - thesundayleader.lk

We’re Leaving Today…
It was a grand time for high-jumpers and pole vaulters, when El Presidente took wing to the Big Apple to attend the UN annual powwow. Amongst the lucky jumpers who got the freebie were Lucky (the Warrior) Ratne, Earl the Pearl, Manusha the Nana, the Sri Dancer and of course As (You) Were. The biggies of the Boys in Blue were left behind. Sin no?

It’s A Long Story
Also amongst the lucky invitees — none other than our dear friend Long John of the Green Team. First he said yes!!! Then it was maybe… and finally Long John with a long face said no. The Greens meanwhile were all of a dither wondering whether Long John would do a long jump. Especially with all the Cupboard redecorating due in November!

The Enemy Of My Enemy Is?
Ra Blue, though opposed to the achcharu that is the 18th appointed TNA Sue Mandhir as a member. The offer was promptly rejected. Why? Well, ‘cause the TNA are also opposed to the 18th achcharu. In other words, the first appointment to the Council and the first rejection both come from those opposed to the achcharu of the 18th. Nice, no??

Where Is The Love?
Poor Wee Flower is not the blue eyed boy anymore. No amount of fasting (even though it was before Ramadan) has kept him amongst the numero unos. Whilst newcomers were accepted on the jaunt to the Big Apple, poor Wee Flower was left behind. Perhaps the Boys in Blue were embarrassed given certain negative reactions of his fast unto drip. Aney, pau!

Rock This Party!
We may be a third world country, but we sure know how to party. This has been made all the more clear when you consider that the 130 plus fellows attending the UN pow wow are partying it up in true style. For all those fellows are hamming it up at the Waldorf Astoria, no less! In fact, they have taken over one entire floor, now known as the Sri Lankan floor. We’re sure there will be many late night paduru parties. Watch this space!

Pole Climbing
And have you heard the newest way to get an appointment with il Presidente? Simply go to the nearest post or pole and climb it. The higher the better of course. Telecom providers are thinking of securing their towers against this new threat. What a mad country it is, no?

-

Empty Seats
The majority of what is left of the Greens at the Diyawanna have decided to go with their conscience and be independent. Well, almost decided. (Ever the decisive lot, the Green Team). Do you fellows think this means that finally, only the TNA and Ra Blue will be sitting at the opposing benches? Spot fixing or what??

A Time For Giving
So this thrice blessed land made the top 10. Not for democracy or governance, of course. But for being charitable. El Presidente took this charity business literally and helped himself to all the goodies in the con-stitution. After all, charity begins at home, no?
