Cliqued

Surely you've been tagged in one of those group pictures on facebook now? You know that picture, the one with a bunch of cartoon faces with titles like "little miss psycho" and the lot. Well, not little miss psycho maybe, but you get my drift.


Its actually pretty interesting, the tagging. But somehow, it doesn't represent the clique/stereotype sets from where I come from.I never went to school with gangstas, pimps and ladies men.

I went to school, with these guys.



















Bet you did, too.

    Copyrighted? where? *evil grin*

    @camphor
    thanks :)

    @chokkathangam
    Dunno, muththu was inspired by this cadbury's ad where amitabh starts giving away dairy milk because "muththu" (a 40 year old dude, as we come to know 10 seconds later) passed SSLC.
    IIT class sundaram, well, there was an IIT class sivaram in my class, and sundaram is pretty close yea :D

    @atul
    thanks! Theeni pandaram means glutton. He's the guy who'd patrol the class during lunch times and eat your lunch, your friends' lunch, go back to his friends, eat their lunch and then go to the canteen and eat 3 samosas and finally come back to class, 5 minutes before the bell to eat his own lunch. :D Surely you had one of those in class?

    @Ram
    24 hours is a lot of time you know

    @karthik

    @ranj
    Thanks so much! And you have a crush on me? If only I got a nickel everytime i heard someone say that.....lol lol.

    @gradwolf
    considering the no of faarin peoples who comment here, it would be wise if you could disclose the identity. And yes, I am feeling very bulbish today.

  25. Lovely, lovely post! Please let me add my two cents -- jingu chaa, kozhi mootti, all-in-all azhagiri, sanda kozhi...

    ReplyDelete
  26. hehe, it's strange how I have a 'cool' before my name. Well being the modest person that I am, i shall just accept what's been given to me. :P

    ReplyDelete
  27. @Barani
    Thats interesting, actually. Because the govind i know is one accused. We call him ganja govind. :D
    But yea, IIT sundaram and thayirsaadham cover the "fruittu" deptt

    @gradwolf
    Lol no comments. Ask me no questions and I'll tell you no lies :D

    @inbavalli
    genius! We should collaborate :D

    @shankar
    Truth be told, cool shankar was inspired by khaaka khaaka, in this one scene where this ruffian bullies a school girl into "louwing" his co-ruffian because he was "very cool". i do believe the dialog goes, "en di? engannanukku enna korachal? avan romba coolanavan di"
    God bless tamil cinema.

  28. Lol......those names/caricatures are funny. I went to PSBB as well, so I can totally relate to the character representations. Dunno what I'd have been called though! :P

  32. @Coconut Chutney: Lol......now, why would you think I was some random white guy? And no, I wasn't in Nungambakkam, I went to the K.K.Nagar branch. I'm assuming you went to Nungambakkam?

  33. Hey Chutney Case, accidentally stumbled upon your blog yesterday and I have been reading through each and every one of your hysterical posts. Have been laughing consistently throughout. Frigging hilarious! Especially Mama Mam, when golu bommais attack SuperPoke(tm) and your random quirks.

    Gawd I totally have a crush on you! OK, let me stop before I embarrass myself more. But, honestly a genuine thank you making me laugh so hard.

    @N
