Ash, Are you stupid?

Aishwarya Rai on Jerry Springer! (link: courtesy George)

Someone tell her what the show is all about. Someone tell her about the episode where a horrendously obese man was given a scrubbing in a bathtub on stage because his dirtiness made his girlfriend break up with him. Someone tell her about the fistfights that happen on stage. Someone tell her about all the nasty name calling. Someone tell her that no one respectable, apart from desi grad students fresh off the plane from India (1) watch it! Someone tell her that, if she is stupid enough to go on the show, let her not be stupid enough to let her mom know when it is on TV. Someone tell her that in the aftermath of the show, she should also steer her mom away from the computer and the TV for the rest of their lives, because this is something that will haunt her for the rest of her life.

But I guess she is NOT. I think this is another joke ON the Slimes of India who attribute this news to (The) Spoof.com! Gotcha! So Someone DID play a joke on the Slimes of India. Look at the disclaimer on the bottom the article on thespoof.com! But, Aishwarya should sue the Slimes guys for putting this up without the disclaimer.

[1] I have never seen the inside of a strip club! I am pretty much ambivalent to it and I think the absence of any in a 50 35 mile radius of Athens (Ohio) is responsible for the status quo. But ya, most male desi grad students have watched Springer regularly as part of their initiation rites, much like the obligatory strip club visits. I watched Springer regularly during my second year here. Not the first year because I had no access to TV during my first year. And that episode with the frighteningly obese guy getting a scrubbing on stage with his estranged (and waiting to get back together with him) girlfriend looking on, is what that made me turn off the TV. Till then the show was funny, but even the thought of that scene makes me want to puke now!

dude...take it easy abt ash..but u r wrong abt the absence of a strip club arnd athens...there's one in parkersburg...though its typical trailer park white trash...not bad for the first time..So fresh off the boat desi guys in athens dont repeat the mistake anti did..make better use of google other than searching for code.

Gabby: I just read the post. There are somethings abt which u can never be "smart" about ;) Guys are always practical about things. That shouldn't be mistaken for ignorance or non-responsiveness. Thats the way we are built.. lol

Dev: I saw that sometime ago da.. Anyways, danks :)

anantha said...

Gabby: Aaah I get your point now!

anantha said...

Gabby: You know what! I realised that, like your current phase, this current phase of mine is only temporary. 9 out 10 posts on here, i am not sure you can be "clever" with your comments :p

So, you got fooled just like TOI. :-P

anantha said...

Well, some most part, yes! For a day, I was getting some stupid search page when I searched on Google for "spoof.com" which is incidentlly the "source" attributed (without any link). I was/am intelligent and knowledgable enf to understand what spoof meant, which is why the last para before my 'note' was similar to what it is now. And a day later, I found the site was actually "thespoof.com" (when i googled for the title of the post) and edited the last para to incl. the correct link.
But without attributing the source or putting out a disclaimer, I think the TOI was misled too. And the journo credited with the article seems to be in denial mode now (chek out the discussion here)!!

Anon (the first guy/gal who commented): You from Athens? Ya, no one told abt Parkersburg that till I got chilled to the idea. And you one of those geeky java coding guys/gals?
