In A Nutshell

Jun 12, 2010 2:30:24 PM - thesundayleader.lk

Camera shy?

So it was time again to talk of the state that is Emergency. The Green Team when allocating speech time in parliament gave some to that sweet faced em pee who is also a teledrama actress. You know who we speak of, no? However at the last minute the poor girl was stricken with stage fright. The poor menike said she couldn’t speak. It seems that this was not the first time either. However another fellow on the Green Team gallantly stepped forward to take her place. The parliament officials weren’t nearly as nice… “Why are you wasting our time by giving time to a person who can’t speak?” they grumbled as they changed the schedule. Aney… sin men!

We Are.. Family?

And our beloved Ra-Kneel might find it difficult to criticise the Benevolent Leader in future. Why? A little birdy whispers that Ra-Kneel and that lovely MP like a Rose are related to the First Lady! Looks like the clan of our Leader is growing larger and larger! Family first, ah, Ra-Kneel!

The way to a man’s heart…

Our Fonny Boy always comes up with his little gems. This Tuesday in parliament he decided that enough is enough. He wanted to respond to allegations made by a Kandy MP in an earlier session. The naughty fellow shouted that the suicide bomber who tried to send Fonny to heaven was actually an old flame. Fonny Boy’s response? “If I had a girlfriend who had so much courage and guts to do something like that, I would be really proud!” he said. True, true, Fonny Boy!

Bon Appetit!

And the new joke doing the rounds is that the fellows on the side that is Opposite have realised their job isn’t much fun. Whilst warming the benches, they have nothing much to give to their electorates. But as one wag said, they have now realised there is SOMETHING they can do. “They can bring the people from their electorate to parliament each month and give them a meal at the parliamentary restaurant, no?” the fellow quipped. Shaaa!
