Monkeys and FII's.....

Once upon a time in a village, a man appeared and announced to the villagers that he would buy monkeys for $10. The villagers seeing that there were many monkeys around, went out to the forest and started catching them. The man bought thousands at $10 and as supply started to diminish, the villagers stopped their effort. He further announced that he would now buy at $20.

This renewed the efforts of the villagers and they started catching monkeys again. Soon the supply diminished even further and people started going back to their farms. The offer rate increased to $25 and the supply of monkeys became so little that it was an effort to even see a monkey let alone catch it. The man now announced that he would buy monkeys at $50!

However, since he had to go to the city on some business, his assistant would now buy on behalf of him.In the absence of the man, the assistant told the villagers. "Look at all these monkeys in the big cage that the man has collected. I will sell them to you at $35 and when the man returns from the city, you can sell it to him for $50." The villagers squeezed up with all their savings to buy the monkeys. Then they never saw the man nor his assistant, only monkeys everywhere!! ( Now replace monkeys with Shares )

This is what FIIs did to Indian markets !!!

An Indian in America.....

An Indian migrated to America , and moved into an American neighbourhood; His American neighbour went next door to wish him welcome. He was shocked to see the man from India in his nice backyard chasing ten chickens around like mad.

"Must be an Indian custom," he thought to himself. Deciding he could put off the welcome till a later date, he went home. The next day, he decided he was going to welcome the Indian man again. When he looked through his window, he saw the Indian man urinate into a cup and drink it. "Must be an Indian custom," he thought to himself.

Deciding he could put off the welcome till the next day, he went on with other stuff. The third day, he was determined to welcome the Indian man. At his gate, he saw the Indian man with his ear pressed against a cow's big fat butt. Seeing this, he became disgusted and went up to the Indian man."I'm sorry sir, I did want to wish you a warm welcome, but I cannot stand your crazy Indian customs!" He yelled at the Indian .

The Indian looked confused and answered. "Sorry sir, I think you are mistaken. These are actually American customs. I was told, that in order to be a true American, you have to chase chicks, get piss drunk, and listen to bullshit.

Unbelievable!!!! Sonia Gandhi at 21.....

Classic but Tasteful insults......

These glorious insults are from an era when cleverness with words was still valued, before a great portion of the English language was taken over by American slang and curse words and got boiled down to 4-letter words, not to mention waving middle fingers.

Smart Thinking!!!!!

A man joined a big Multi National Company as a trainee...On his first day, he dialed the kitchen and shouted into the phone: "Get me a cup of coffee, quickly!"

The voice from the other side responded:"You fool; you've dialed the wrong extension! Do you know who you're talking to?"

"No" replied the trainee.

"It's the Managing Director of the company, you idiot!

"The trainee shouted back: "And do you know who YOU are talking to, you IDIOT?"

"No!" replied the Managing Director angrily.

"Thank God!" replied the trainee and put down the phone

Why some men wear ear rings.....

I have often wondered how this trend got started, I now have the answer.......

A man is at work one day when he notices that his co-worker is wearing an earring. This man knows his co-worker to be a normally conservative fellow, and is curious about his sudden change in "fashion sense."

The man walks up to him and says, "I didn't know you were into earrings."

"Don't make such a big deal, it's only an earring, "he replies sheepishly.

His friend falls silent for a few minutes, but then his curiosity prods him to say, "So, how long have you been wearing one?"

"Ever since my wife found it in my car."

Golfing is not my Cup of Tee !!!!!

My wife told me it was about time that I learned to play golf . . . you know, golf . . . that's the game where you chase a little ball all over the country when you are too old to chase women.

So, I went to see Mr. Jones and asked him if he would teach me how to play. He said, "Sure, you've got balls don't you?""Yes, but sometimes on cold mornings they are hard to find." "Bring them to the clubhouse tomorrow morning and we will tee off." "What's tee off?""It's a golf term and we have to tee off in front of the clubhouse.""Not for me," I said. "You can tee off in front of the clubhouse if you want, but I'll tee off behind the barn somewhere." "No, no, a tee is a little thing about the size of your finger." "Yeah, I've got one of those.""Well, you stick it in the ground and put your ball on top of it.""You play golf sitting down? I always thought you stood up and walked around." "You do, you're standing up when you put your ball on the tee."

Well folks, I thought that was stretching things a bit too far and I said so. He said, "You've got a bag haven't you?" "Sure.""You're balls are in it, aren't they?""Of course!!" I told him."Well, can't you open your bag and take one out?" "I suppose I could, but I'll be damned if I am going to." "Don't you have a zipper on your bag?""No, I am the old fashioned type.""Do you know how to hold your club?" Well..... after 65 years, I should have some sort of an idea and I told him so. He said, "You take your club in both hands . .. "Well folks, I knew right then that he didn't know what he was talking about.

Then he said, "Swing it over your shoulder .. . " No, no, that's not me at all. That's my brother he's talking about.He asked, "How do your hold your club?"And before I thought about it, I said, "With two fingers." He said that wasn't right, got behind me, put two arms around me, and said for me to bend over and he would show me. Well, he couldn't catch me there for nothing. I didn't spend four years in the Navy for nothing. He said, "You hit the ball with your club and it soars and soars. . ."I could well imagine that.".....and when you're on the green . . .""What's the green?" "That's where the hole is.""Sure you're not color blind?""Then you take your putter in your hands. . ""What's a putter?""That's the smallest club made." "That's what I got, a putter.""And with it, you put your ball into the hole."I corrected him, "You mean the putter.""No, the ball. The hole isn't big enough for the ball and putter too." Well, I've seen holes big enough for a horse and wagon."

Then," he said, "after you finish with the first hole, you go on to the next 17."Well, he certainly wasn't talking about me. After two holes I'm shot to hell. "You mean you can't make 18 holes in one day?""Hell no! It takes me 18 days to make one hole! Besides, how do I know when I am in the 18th hole?""The flag will go up!!!"

Well, golfing is definitely not for me !!!
