Desi Profanity & Amdavadi Darwin Awards Contenders

A couple of cool posts on Sarika's blog.

This one leads us to speculate that Trey Parker, the co-creator of South Park, probably knows Indian profanity.... more specifically the hindi equivalent for the f-word. What else is a character called Chodaboy doing in a film called Orgazmo?

The second one pokes some well-deserved fun at residents of that fine city called Ahmedabad. It also tells us about a strong contender who, if sufficiently lobbied, could win India its first Darwin Award. When hundreds have died in floods all around you in the last few days, and you still go to watch the gushing waters like a tourist and drown, then we can only thank you for removing yourself from the gene pool.
