Something's Fishy!

I know two types of men…those who  fish for sport and those who fish for fish! 

Abubacker was on the water at Allepey for his monthly fishing trip. Every single day he managed to bait a lot many varieties….On the the third day just as he was about to leave fishing, his cell phone rang.

It was a doctor notifying him that his Biwi had just been in a terrible
accident and was in critical condition in the ICU. 
As he hung up, he realized he was leaving what was shaping up to be his best fishing day ever!

Abu decided to get in a couple of more catches before actually heading to the hospital. He ended up fishing the rest of the morning and it was after the third catch he decided to stop.He was jubilant....then he remembered his wife!

Feeling terribly guilty, Abu rushed to the hospital. He ran up to the
Doctor in the corridor and asked about his wife's condition.

The physician glared at him and shouted, "You went ahead and finished your fishing, didn't you? I hope you're proud of yourself! While you were out enjoying yourself on the lake, your poor Biwi has been languishing in the ICU! I hope you really enjoyed yourself, because it will more than likely be the last jolly trip you will ever take! For the rest of her life your Biwi will be paralyzed and require around the clock care, and you'll be her Miya forever!"

Abubacker felt so horrible at what he had done, that he broke down and howled.

Then the doctor chuckled and said, "I'm just messin' with you. Biwi’s dead. What'd you catch?

Good things come to those who bait if Abu had to say it “his”way!

Food Minister,K V Thomas, has written to the Prime Minister to create a separate Ministry for Fisheries!...Sharad Pawar is obviously upset!....Now Pawar thinks Thomas has an intent to bifurcate the Agriculture Ministry but Thomas knows better!...I was told that Madam at No. 10 Janpath was mighty thrilled with the fish curry made by Mrs Thomas earning the Minister the nick name “Thirutha Thomas"

Little did Sharad Pawar realise that Thomas maybe going the Abubacker way!!!;-)

What a way to pay obeisance!!!!....Truly Fishy!

...of all the liars among mankind, the fisherman is the most trustworthy.  ~William Sherwood Fox, Silken Lines and Silver Hooks, 1954


  1. Hahaha... Ushy, that was at your best... as always.

    "When the sandpiper and the clam grapple, it is the fisherman that profits".

    Madamji, Pawarji, Thomasji, and chalo for rhyming sake, Sherlyji (Thomas's bitter half) all adorn the same cloak the entire CON clan do i.e. servile bootlicking!
