Bengalis :P this is actually funny.

First off, why do i have to manually change the post date everytime i post. Isn't there a way to automate this?

Ok, now this is funny. If you're in the media, you know the number of journalists that are bengali. They run the damn media. Anyway something funny came in on PTI yesterday. I hope its not a crime to take it off PTI and post it here.

Here it is. (I havn't done any editing. Its just here as PTI sent it)

when I was younger i wanted to drive a tank. I realy wanted to be in the army, sometimes I still want to. But luckily figured out soon enough that i'm not willing to kill people for reasons that i may not always believe in. Ah well. So i'm here posting.

eh? panties? Deeyood... Isn't liking panties a 7th standard obsession? dude, as long as they're on women, i'm ok. I mean, a woman wearing a thong is hot, but i'm not interested thongs if they're on mannequins:)

I'm still trying to figure out what's so funny about this.

It's probably desirable to have Bengali speaking soldiers at least along the Indo-Bangladesh border. Hence makes sense to have a recruitment drive for Bengali soldiers, if there aren't enough of them.

And Ekta last I checked, there's no large scale famine in Bengal at this time, so that comment is strange.

A) Its not funny funny, like frasier funny, or even sienfeld, or even no entry funny. But its just a sort of friendly dig at all the bongs, cos tehre's so many (successful) ones in the media. And me being from the media... so, no offence meant.

b) I really don't know how wise a decision it would be to post bengali speaking soldiers along the Indo-Bangladesh border. That's as wise as putting Kashmiri soldiers on the line of control. Think about it uno momento :)
