Some more jokes for you to enjoy!!
****
A man is driving down a country road, when he spots a Badaga standing in the middle of a huge field of grass. He pulls the car over to the side of the road and notices that Bojan is just standing there, doing nothing, looking at nothing.
The man gets out of the car, walks all the way out to the Badaga and asks him, “Ah excuse me sir, but what are you doing?”
Bojan replies, “I’m trying to win a Nobel Prize.”
"How?” asks the man, puzzled.
”Well I heard they give the Nobel Prize to people who are out standing in their field.”
****
A porter loaded down with suitcases followed Mr. & Mrs. Bojan to the airline check-in counter. As they approached the line, the husband glanced at the pile of luggage and said to the wife, "Why didn't you bring the piano, too?" "Are you trying to be funny?" she replied. "No, I really wish you had" he sighed. "I left the tickets on it."
****
Bojan and Rajan were always boasting of their parents achievements to each other.
Bojan : 'Have you ever heard of the Suez Canal?'
Rajan : 'Yes, I have'
Bojan : 'Well, my father dug it.'
Rajan : 'That's nothing, have you ever heard of Deadsea?'
Bojan : 'Yes, I have.'
Rajan : 'Well, my father killed it.'
****

I'm sure a few of you would have enjoyed the "jokes" - if indeed you love jokes. Or else, if you are a self-respecting Badaga(if they did not sound jovial), then probably you will be fuming at me.

Sampath, you being a student can be an excuse for not knowing what type of jokes to crack(or copy/paste rather). I'm sure you will not have the intention to hurt.
But please understand that these types of so-called jokes, which directly or indirectly use names of communities to poke fun at, are a reflection of one's poor personality and are a strict no-no in corporate environments and western countries(where these are called racist attacks).
But we Indians generally tend to do that with a chalta-hai attitude. And surprisingly and sadly no one questions them(which is an acceptance of sorts even by those who hate these "jokes").

For your information, Punjabis(Sardars, as they are referred to in these "jokes") are one of the best people in contributing to society...be it in military, politics, sports, education(any IIM batch will have a good number of these guys), et al.
And the 2-3 Punjabis I am close with (and a few I've known) are nothing less than jems. They are kind, helpful, have a great sense of humour(which is no license for someone else to make fun of) and are wonderful people to be with.

So take this small piece of advice from me: do not consider these as "jokes".

Jokes are always a joke as far as the intention is not to hurt some one.
I enjoyed your jokes till i read your comments.

Hello all,
Well. The jokes are fine and are interesting too. And I dont find that Sampath has any intentions to hurt any community. Its just a human error
I would say. In order to avoid these problems, my suggestions would be neither indicate the community names nor indicate even names of individuals, but just to indicate in the form of X OR Y. Expecting more jokes from Sampath.

With Love
Gopenath.

Winston Churchill, famous for one-liners, had said this:
A joke is a very serious thing.
So, Bellie, jokes need not always be jokes. What's a joke for one could well be embarassing/ insulting another.
Sampath, the fact that your Punjabi friends enjoyed the jokes you'd told them is no reason to believe that all Punjabis will sit and listen and laugh at these.
Perhaps you could try Gopenath's suggestion in all "your" future jokes.
Those were my views. I have no intention to argue over something that you guys think is invaluably humorous.
There's no stopping anyone on the internet. So you may go on as you please!!
