In response to prompt : Droll
The Bengali actor made a droll comment,
Rice was in short supply he loved to torment.
He said, ‘once upon a time we were rice eaters,
But our government exported it to cheaters.
Depriving us and making money is their aim,
Now we can only see the image, what a shame.’
While some thought it is a funny joke,
It didn’t satisfy the suffering folk!

Odd and Even are going for a walk,
It’s sounds strange how they talk.
One’s English accent is peculiar,
The other’s accent is not queer.
Even tells Odd, ‘I’ll teach you brother,’
Odd replies, ‘it’s all right why bother.’
So they decided to go separate ways,
Rather than tease each other anyways!
Can anything be funny, or are some things off limits?
Anything cannot be funny, there are a lot of things that should be off limits.
We should always remember that something we think is funny is not so for other people. It’s politically not correct. If we hurt people by laughing the way they,talk, eat or work, cannot be considered funny.

I am funny with the right people. The ones I pick on the most are my siblings. It is my way of showing how funny I am. Lately I have a very good friend who’s always deep in work. I try to put some humor in his life,which is boring to say the least. To me laughter is the best medicine for good health.
My brother was once asked by my Great-Aunt: “How is your middle sister?” He immediately replied in a loud voice,” She is not my middle sister,she is my real sister!” I don’t know if you got the joke.I thought it was funny.
There are a few Hollywood comedians I like,at the moment I cannot remember their names. The one I found very funny was Bob Hope.
It has been said quite often,”A fool laughs three times,first he/she laughs without understanding the joke, secondly after understanding it and thirdly at himself for his stupidity.
What is funny? It can be everything or nothing. I have witnessed people laughing at others just to be mean.To them the way one dresses,speaks or even their physical looks. Should all this be off limits,a big “YES”.
If we look at ourselves and put some thought into our actions,we will never take this path. What is worse we do not care. I remember a while back,a beggar came to our door.At fourteen I was insensitive,I asked the man,how old are you? He said,’Oh I am really old,I am twelve years old’. I burst out laughing, I replied,’You really are very old’,even at that age I was sarcastic. If anyone was listening,especially my mother she would say,’Ranu do not be cruel to the man,to him age does not make sense,he only knows he is old’!

It has finally been decided the penny has overstayed its welcome.It costs too much to keep them in circulation.If you want a dollar you will need a hundred pennies.Too much work for little or no gain.If you carry them in your pocket,the weight will create a hole in your pocket. It has no place in your wallet,your bag will be too heavy. Result,chuck them out of your bag.
I am writing about our Canadian penny.I wonder if the penny could speak,what will it say?I used to watch on T.V ‘A penny saved is a penny earned.’ They will have to come up with something new and exciting.
I was told about the penny’s demise by a store clerk. You can imagine,how I get my news! Now I have this daunting task of finding a home for my pennies in my ‘Piggy Bank.’ Some people have started a new business,they are using as a pendant and selling them.
Perhaps I will send them to people who are using them as a pendant.There is a problem,due to their weight,they cannot be shipped,it will cost too much. Do I want to do this,on second thoughts,not really.
I am a penny,
there are so many
no one will want me,
isn’t it funny.
This concludes my thoughts about our poor,dear penny!
