The genius behind Goodness Gracious Me and Kumars at No.42 has died from a rare infection. Sharat Sardana collapsed at his father’s home after contracting a streptococcal virus but died a few days later in hospital. Sardana was only 40 years of age. Oh, what a sadder place this world is going to be without him. Sardana’s funeral will be held next Wednesday at the City of London Crematorium in Manor Park at 5pm. I am sure even in death he would want people to laugh and remember his work fondly. Here is one of the friggin funniest skits ever “Going out for an English” turning the table on the English going out for a curry! RIP Sardana and thanks for the laughs.

Want, want, want. A Brisbane police officer has made a right fool of himself after he demanded free doughnuts. Hmm, the staff at Krispy Kreme denied the hungry cop the freebies and his sugar fix so he cracked the shits (as you would!). Witnesses to the fiasco said that the officer continued to argue with the staff after being told no, he eventually stormed off in a rage. One said “He was quite rude, insisting his doughnuts should be free.” Oh boy, it gets worse. Thanks to the junior constable’s public outburst, Krispy Kreme are ceasing to provide the free doughnuts to the City Beat unit . All the doughnuts which went unsold at the end of each day were given to the police but now they are being handed out to the homeless (great for their teeth!).
OK men take note, nothing says “I love you” better than screaming it out loud in a park full of complete strangers (including your wife). Hmm, the latest Japanese “save your marriage” craze has “new age sensitive” men letting their feelings rip in Hibiya Park, Tokyo, for all the world to hear.
Kiyotaka Yamana, founder of the Japan Aisaika (“Devoted Husband”) Organization, started the “Shout Your Love From the Middle of a Cabbage Patch” in 2004 after his marriage fell apart due to lack of communication at home. Marriage in Japan is often regarded more as a status than as a relationship and expressing ones true feelings is considered a big friggin no-no! Japanese men in particular struggle to express any words of affection beyond “where’s my friggin dinner” (ah, so universal). So Mr Yamana thought maybe it would be easier for Japanese men to express themselves in public rather than intimately by shouting love messages to their wives.
This year Mr Yamana organized “Shout Your Love From the Middle of Hibiya Park,” with the philosophy “Husbands who take great care of their wife seem to care about those around them. So if there are more devoted husbands on earth, the world would become more peaceful.” Oh how sweet and naive.
Staff at Derby’s new Royal Hospital in England have called in an exorcist after being terrorized by a friggin ghost.The black clad, cloak wearing spook has been haunting the corridors of the newly built hospital for months. One nurse said “Several have seen a male figure cloaked from head to toe in black darting between rooms and through walls – especially in departments near the morgue.” Mr Jerry Phillips claims he saw the ghost in 1978 in the old hospital and it scared the bejesus out of him,“He was cloaked in black from head to foot clasping a candle — it was bone-chilling.” Members of the night shift staff now work in pairs after one nurse took “spook leave” after being scared near out of her witts. Hmm, well that’s what you get when you build over historical sites. It seems developers ignored protesters pleas to avoid building over one of Britain’s Ancient Roman roads (whoops). Spook experts believe the unwelcome guest is more than likely a Roman soldier killed on the site. Hmm, so I am assuming the priest will be performing the exorcism in Latin then? “Requiescat in pace” dude.
