Manmohan Singh and L K Advani to judge a dance show

In a bid to cast aside differences, show a semblance of unity and have a good time, Manmohan Singh and L K Advani have agreed to jointly judge the finals of a dance show aired on an Indian entertainment channel. Sources say that the two have already agreed to partake and judge the contestants.

“Yes, it is true and I cannot share any more details without compromising the Official Secrets Act. You media people (and bloggers) know everything. That Arnab fellow has even sent 97 questions to us on this. CAG is already analysing the loss to the exchequer due to PM’s participation in this contest and am sure he is going to come up with an astronomical figure and so Manish Tiwari and Diggi are on standby” Minister of State in the PMO V Narayanasamy said.

No one from Advani camp was available for comment on the record but over 400 people turned up the moment we mentioned ‘off the record’. “Advaniji and the PM will be judging a talent show together. This occasion will give the leaders enough t…

Katrina Kaif loses temper again; this time she was asked to act

While shooting for a soap advert recently, Katrina Kaif reportedly lost her cool when the director asked her to pose. The director was apparently not satisfied with Katrina's 'seductive' act and wanted a retake. But Katrina got angry and warned the director not to push the envelope. Well this was two days ago. Today, she lost her cool again and gave a good dressing down to a newbie director who wanted her to ‘act’ as per the script, reliable sources claimed. The director has since been replaced.

The incident happened at a prominent studio today morning. Everything was proceeding as per plan till Katrina started her shoot and gave her first shot. The director was extremely disappointed with Katrina’s acting prowess and called for a retake. After 15 retakes, the director calmly told Katrina to stop pouting her lips and 'act' as per the script. Katrina apparently jumped off her chair when she heard the word act.

Seething with anger, Katrina started hissing and saying…

Pressure mounts on Rahul Gandhi to initiate an affair after l’affair Bilawal Bhutto

Shortly after Bhutto scion Bilawal Zardari Bhutto and Pakistani foreign minister Hina Rabbani Khar were rumoured to have developed a relationship, the media in India along with some Congress politicians rushed to Gandhi scion Rahul and asked him to do something similar.

Pakistan according to sources is abuzz with reports of a love affair between Chotu 10 percent Bilawal Bhutto and foreign minister Hina Rabbani Khar. The episode was brought to light by a reputed Bangladeshi tabloid and India’s very own tabloid Times of India is planning to carry the story on its front page tomorrow along with detailed analysis and expert opinion. The newspaper has already signed up 3 sponsors for the story, Bennet and Coleman sources told Humor Unplugged.

And it doesn’t end here. Within an hour of the story hitting the wires, a delegation of media persons and prominent Congress politicians visited Rahul Gandhi and urged him to develop a relationship with someone prominent. The contention of the politi…

CBI to probe all coal block allocations from 3000 BC onwards

Not content with expanding the coal block allocation probe to 1993, country’s premier investigation agency CBI today announced that it will probe all allocations made since civilisation began in the Indian subcontinent.

At a crowded press conference filled with snooty media people and a few bloggers, CBI spokesperson Chavvani Lal said the investigating authority had expanded probe’s scope following a direction from the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC). "We will file charges against everybody including kings, ministers and others. The nation has a right to know how clean its leaders were in the past and we are in no mood to spare anybody," Lal said.

When a few bloggers questioned the move and asked him why the under-staffed CBI was undertaking such a massive exercise in futility, Lal threatened to bring bloggers under the scope of the probe.

“The process of determining favours in coal block allocation or coal-gate as some proton-minded wags call it will ensure that our ne…

Arnab tries to do a Manmohan in his home, gets mauled

Taking a leaf out of Indian PM Manmohan Singh’s book, Times Now Editor-in-Chief Arnab tried to push home the need to implement unpopular austerity measures in his home. But little did he know that he would soon run into ‘allies’ worse than Mamata.

As its Editor-in-chief, Arnab literally carries Times Now on his fidgety shoulders. He is a widely popular anchor; but his stellar role is limited to the confines of homes tuning in to watch his news shows on a regular basis. When it comes to his domestic turf, Arnab’s wife Pipi Goswami calls the shots. Together with son Papu Goswami, Pipi has formed a formidable all weather alliance to take on Arnab. Little wonder that the duo rule the Goswami family and Arnab’s repeated attempts to gain an upper hand in key domestic decisions are routinely shot down causing Arnab to vent his frustration at politicians and other reptilian entities that grace his show.

Arnab’s neighbour who didn’t want to be identified claims there is a policy paralysis goi…

Indian PM assures the nation – 1991 will not be allowed to happen

A Humor Unplugged exclusive 

PM Manmohan Singh has lashed out at critics who claimed that a deep economic crisis akin to 1991 was looming on the horizon. In a rare interview with Humor Unplugged, the PM urged people to think big as big as the scams his government was orchestrating on the nation and advised patience while suggesting that the nation has weathered bigger storms before.

Humor Unplugged’s resident mime Bhoopain Chow-bey met the PM recently and had a brief interaction with him in a language the latter is comfortable with – extreme silence. “In 1991, Bhappi Lahiri didn’t have all that gold and that is a huge difference. If things go bad, we will mortgage him to beef up our cash position even before we pledge our IMF reserves. So why is everyone getting worried? Bhappi has enough gold on him to foot our import bill for the next 5 years atleast. He is a cushion in more ways than one,” the Indian PM said while enacting a complex mime routine effortlessly.

When asked about his …

Its celebration time!
