Er, it's more like we're remembering a very old one. For a while it became a popular catchphrase.

On another note I haven't seen any 'Indian-bashing'* going on, though I feel sanjivvohra might have received a couple of more candid replies than he expected.


* Yes it pains me to see the 'suggestion of racism' flag being hoist again!

Nice pic there, let's hope it's not hunting squirrels eh? :)

Meanwhile this was the comedy to which I was referring:

Mr 'Everything Comes From India' scenes (Goodness Gracious Me)

If anyone gets deja vu, I posted it last night, but in the wrong topic...

Frankly, I don't see a heck of a lot of difference between an Sri Lankan & an Indian. Both tend to be full of themselves! Especially if they got masters! :P


Now that I can understand! It takes a keen intellegence to spot the difference. The kind that come from eating fish, perhaps?
