Jokes Apart

Before you go ahead and crack a joke at someone’s expense, please remember that what is a light hearted situation for you, could actually be a serious day to day struggle for the person.

And also there’s a difference between humor and a deprecating taunt. And you should know that the tone of your voice gives it away.

A sense of humor is highly appreciated but a carefully layered taunt is not cool.

​Is it Okay?

Okay. To me, the way a person types okay really matters bcoz I interpret each okay to mean different. I’m sure u may have meant different but I see it different.

This is what each okay means to me😜

Okay – Everything is cool between us. 

Okayyy – literally means Yeayy, I’m really excited about it. 

Ohkay – I didn’t really understand u but it’s alright. 

Ok – Neutral 

Hmmm ok – My mood is bordering on impatience but I’m trying to stay polite. 

K – I hate people who respond like that. Esp if I send u dozens of text and u reply back with a single alphabet, I’m so going to murder u!!

K. – The rudest people ever reply with a K and a full stop. 

Ok 😊 – U really hated the idea didnt u? But u wanted to appear all for it so u added a smiley

Okie – I hate that, I hate that, I hate that word. It’s like all the Yo, Yup, Cool jargon and I don’t like such words. 

Okkkk – U want to quickly dismiss the subject. 

Oh, okay – U just realized u had got it wrong so far and u just got what I was actually talking about. 

A 👍instead of an Okay – Hmm, r u really so lazy or not bothered or busy(which I doubt) that u can’t reply with a simple okay? 

O. K. – U used autopredict instead of typing it, hai naa
So okay, we can agree to disagree on this, that’s fine by me😁

Gettin’ Roasted

Recently, there was a lot of hue and cry about “The Roast Of Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor” conducted by the AIB.

All of u must be knowing by now what the Roast is all about but I’ll still chip in an intro.
AIB(All India Bakchod) is a group which does a comedy podcast about various topics mostly Bollywood and politics and is tremendously popular on YouTube.

What brought them into the spot light of recent controversy is this live show which they conducted last year in December in which they “roasted” or made fun of two of Bollywood’s latest sensations – Ranveer Singh & Arjun Kapoor aided by famous film maker Karan Johar.

Now, made fun means made filthy comments and used a lot of swear words in between. So, this ignited the anger of some “righteous” people in the country and they think that this kind of an event brings shame to the country.

I mean like, seriously? SERIOUSLY??? All that is left for our country now to do is sit and dissect some humor show? There are far more shameful events happening in our country to which we turn blind eyes and deaf ears to but we gladly join the bandwagon and scream about a comedy show.

And what is the damn fuss about? About a group of guys who decided to make jokes on each other? From the point that I see it, it was all good humor targeted at each other. When the people involved are not feeling insulted or humiliated about it , why should anybody else’s sentiments get hurt?

It isn’t like the video was forcefully broadcasted at places and people were forced to watch it. It was a choice. And clear warnings at the start mentioned that if u are too kind-hearted to get offended by such things, stop now. But if u chose to watch it still, it was really ur
choice. I mean, grow up, be mature and handle things.

Our society is a society of hypocrites. We are those “behind-the-closed-doors” people. We swear filth in our normal day-to-day conversations but we don’t want to admit it. But someone else does it , we jump at the opportunity and point fingers at them.

Lets summarize this KJo style, “Not ur cup of tea, don’t drink it!!!”
It’s that simple actually.
