Everybody Hates Chris

Everybody Hates Chris is a new show on TV starting today. Check out the 7 minute preview.

Chris Rock has always been a shade apart from the other stand up comedians. If you leave out the crude ladies parts, he is one of the few men out there who makes sense.

As I watched the pilot, I was reminded of The Wonder Years. Those who know and have seen Kevin will enjoy this show. Its funnier and the narration by Chris is amazing.

So check it out, its on tonite at 8 and lemme know what y'all think.

Why not just make a "Stop growing hair" product ?

I remember the time when there were razors with just one flat blade. The problem was that you had to change blades pretty often. Then came the two blade disposable ones and then the three blade ones.

That was when I stopped following the number of blades and just went with something that I liked.

As I was sifting thro the news, I read Gillette has come up with a 5 blade razor. Why not just make a "Stop growing hair" product ? Wouldn't that be simpler ?

Google snaps up internet pioneer

A couple of weeks later, this, Google picks up the Pioneer of the internet as we know it.

If I get this right, pretty soon, we will all be using googles high speed internet service or even possibly its wireless service. That is going to be very.... should I say Intresting.

Finally a fortune cookie makes sense... well atleast it made us laugh.

Read on, this post is not about the picture on your left.

Chinese resturants always finish off the meal by giving you a check and a fortune cookie. Its a fortune cookie, coz it the cookie has a little message on it. Since most chinese buffets are "all you can eat", I tend to go there pretty often.

But there has never been a time when those messages made any sense. They were badly formed sentences or they just did not mean anything. A while ago, I came across this picture and have always wondered if something funny like this would ever happen.

And it did.... Finally.

So here I am in San Jose at P.F.Changs (which I recommend you go to when you get a chance, its the most amazing Chinese resturant I have ever been to) with a friend and his fiance. I have known these people for years, but we have never had the time to meet each other. Now that they are engaged, they were the topic of discussion.

As we are finishing up the fortune cookies are dropped off at our table. My friends fiance is the first to open it and she starts laughing. Her fortune says "An Admirer is concealing his affection for you". We spend five minutes discussing who this person could be, just for kicks.

As we are doing this, my friend goes next. He has the same reaction as her, he is now laughing. His fortune says "The smart thing is to prepare for the unexpected". I could not control my laughter.

Now I am raring to open my fortune and after a little struggle with the plastic wrapper, I finally open it. "Be Patient. Good things come to those who wait" is what my message says. I could not control my laughter, neither could they.

It was really intresting that for the first time a fortune made sense and it was funny for the right reasons.

So keep eating that chinese food, you never know when you will get a good laugh out of it.
