Geeking with the family

I shared the comic below with my family. It resulted in a chain of hilarious emails. I documented a few.

  • Was it sine-d with your name? Bwahahahahhaha
  • I was too 'tan'ned to sign..
  • Was it 'cos' you were out in the sun?
  • I will 'cosine' it in a 'sec' ;)
  • Bit derivative eh Pavi?
  • No, it's quite integral
  • I must admit that it was partially derivative
  • You were 'cot' in the act! :P
  • Stop with all the 'hyperbolic' talk people...
  • This conversation has become too 'tangential'
  • I like the 'equation' we have as a family.
  • Let's all meet at the next 'function'
  • Why do you 'constantly' say that?
  • Side note - is Poppy a constant as his initial is 'K'?
  • Yes, but don't 'differentiate' me. I'm not an 'integrated zero', either.
  • You are but a 'fraction' of your former self.
  • If you are a 'fraction', then you are not 'natural', you are 'whole'.
  • How 'irrational'!
  • Hope that heuristically speaking, you'll all discover that you are mere 'surds' and uninteresting 'prime nos'.
  • This is the 'limit'!
  • It is rather out of 'proportion', yes. 
  • In all 'probability', we are going to run out of ideas very soon...
  • This conversation is now a bit 'disjoint'
  • You all need new clothes, so you must go to a 'Taylor'.
  • Are ya Bhatta?
  • Bhas-kar!
  • The root of anything 'negative' will always be 'imaginary'
  • In 'sum', we can say that this is utter nonsense.
  • This is a 'prime' conversation.
  • Actually, I think it is rather 'odd'.
  • The references are not '4n' to me.
  • The 'progression' of this conversation is not 'harmonic' at all!
  • I hope that we all 'converge' to a conclusion. This is getting way too 'complex'.
  • I can't 'count' on you guys to make sense.
  • The 'principal' subject of this conversation has changed so many times that I'm losing 'interest'
  • Yes, my disinterest has been 'compounded' many times too.
  • Is the compounding 'regressive' or 'progressive'? 
  • People are not doing it the right way; sentences are not 'calculated'
  • Appa's mathematical puns are  not 'congruent' with the everyone else's.
  • I am going to stop monitoring this conversation and just eat some 'pi' instead as this conversation is getting too 'divergent'.

If you can come up with more, please do leave them in the comments section. I would love to read yours. :-)

Godambi-Limerick wars

Source: Google Images
It all started with my MIL (mother-in-law) making avalakki with lots of GODAMBI's (cashews). She distributed the avalakki among all of us, and then all hell broke lose....

My SIL claimed that she had been cheated of her share of cashews in the avalakki she got. Her suspicion was that my FIL had eaten all her cashews.

It then led to war of limericks between them. When my husband (H) chimed in with his indifference, I decided to jump in and call "order".


    Too much ado about some fucking cashew!
    After all it is a bloody, measly 'nut', ah! phew!
    Of it, if avalakki is bereft,
    It is a sign of some theft -
    To gobble them up, take from your husband a cue

    - GO-'DUMB'-I-POP

All for a cashew!

    Not measly is the glorious cashew, 
    Why will you not give it its due?
    'Tis a nut sublime, 
    And almost a crime, 
    Not to pilfer but instead eschew.

    Oh! Your blasted, fucking euology, despite,
    Made with unbecoming and shocking spite,
    All for an insipid nut!
    It is only a mutt
    Who can go to ecstasy for a bite, right?!

    - GO-DUMB-I-POP virachita

    I cannot help this Philistine, 
    Who rejects a nut so pristine, 
    Calls it a mutt, 
    Likens it to his butt,
    Such a person deserves the guillotine. 


    Oh! My darling Beti, Oh! My dear, dear, dear!
    Your epicurean kaju-love brings me a sad tear!
    I'm appalled at your taste
    Developed in unseemly haste.
    And to ill-constructed ditties I cannot lend my ear.

    Who to trust Appa or Sarayew
    Qualms they have not more than few
    Ethics, they both badly lack
    how dare a pot call the kettle black
    don't care coz I dislike godambi. Phew!
Believe me - I actually did do this!

    Oh Good Lord! - All this ballyhoo
    For a stupid fucking nut called cashew
    I look around queasily 
    What a crazy family!
    As a frustrated DIL, I now impose a CURFEW!

In summary, I can tell you this:

Shakespeare won't be turning in his grave
But for cashew, he will start to crave
