Greetings...and more

So much has happened the past year, and now Ramazan is upon us. So Ramazan Mubarik to all the readers of my blog!
It also feels great sitting infront of the computer again after a torrid couple of weeks. I got struck down by lolu roagaa & was prohibited from using my comp, watching tv, reading & mixing with people. This week was all about catching up with my i suppose a little bit of humor will do us all good.

Right, its always funny when someone says something dirty without meaning to ain't it? My physics teacher has a nack of doing this unusually frequently. Like when he explained how a ripple tank looks like;
"You have seen the ripple tank during your o'levels havent you? There will be a rod, on which there are two balls and also a vibrator attached to it-" he suddenly stopped, looked around at the sniggering students & changed the subject.
Also when a classmate of mine got his circuit connections horribly wrong during a practical exam, he yelled "You're not coming to class & just poking every hole you see!"

Then there's also the Barney song:
"Barney is a dinosaur from our imagination
And when he's tall
he's what we call a dinosaur sensation"

there's more

"Barneys shows us lots of things
Like how to play pretend"

"Barney comes to play with us
Whenever we may need him"

so this is the stuff they teach kids...

Just for your enjoyment, here're a few such bloopers by sports commentators

"He [Diawarea] brings out an extra six to twelve inches and it's a fantastic tackle." (Scott Minto, BBC)
"If he opens his legs, he'll be hard to handle." (Graham Taylor)
"Ardiles strokes the ball like it was a part of his anatomy." (Jimmy Magee, RTÉ)
"Neil Harvey, standing at leg slip with his legs wide apart, waiting for a tickle." (Brian Johnston, BBC)
"Botham struggled to get his leg over there." (Jonathan Agnew, BBC)
"Rutherford's asking the umpire how many balls he's got left... he's got two." (Bryan Waddle, Radio New Zealand)
"This is Gregoriava from Bulgaria. I saw her snatch this morning and it was amazing." (Pat Glenn, Weightlifting Commentator)
"I was saying the other day, how often the most vulnerable area for goalies is between their legs..." (Andy Gray, Sky Sports)
"The Czech Republic are coming from behind in more than one way now." (John Motson, BBC in 27th minute of World Cup 2006 game against Italy.)
"And Michael Schumacher just stood on his seat and pulled out something special." (Martin Brundle, ITV)
"Gary Neville says that Porto are a bunch of girls who go down too easily." (Peter Schmeichel)
"This is really a lovely horse, I once rode her mother." (Ted Walsh)
"The batsman's Holding, the bowler's Willey." (Brian Johnston, BBC Radio 4, Test Match Special)
"Arsene Wenger's lips are firmly sealed on Sir Alex Ferguson" Sky News
"He's not the sharpest sandwich in the picnic" Tony Cascarino, Talksport Radio (????)

though not a sports commentary, this deserves a mention;
"If blood is thicker than water, it must also be thicker than a calendar or a small clock." Esther Rantzen, English journalist
What the hell does this mean??
