I love looking at moi

The IPL is staging parades through the streets before the games even begin? Narcissus had nothing on these guys.

I can't wait for the commentary to start, they surely covered all adjectives last time round while praising his highness Lalit Modi.

You've probably seen this already but the latest is that there will be a tamasha break every ten overs that shall last seven-and-a-half minutes. Gotta love the combination of precise attention to detail and completely terrifying idiocy.

I was reminded of this Enid Blyton book I read as a kid, where a new circus had come into town. And they paraded through the streets before setting camp. All the "owners" with their respective "monkeys, elephants" and such at the front. And the circus owner, coming in last...

Achettup: I don't think he'll mind a repeat!

JQ: Rediff comments are quite hilarious, in a bizarre, twisted sort of way.
