Tharoor excitedly tweets about previous tweet

Minister of State for External Affairs and renowned Twitter rock star Shashi Tharoor has excitedly tweeted about his previous tweet. Tharoor, on his twitter feed, said “Wow. My previous tweet about the meeting with that random delegation from Zaire was truly amazing.” He then proceeded to tweet “ ROFL. So true RT @shashitharoor Wow. My previous tweet about the meeting with that random delegation from Zaire was truly amazing.”


As with any Tharoor tweet, this has created an inordinate amount of commotion in the media, with an equal number of people criticizing as well as supporting the minister.


“Tweet is not only a very lonely man who needs counseling, but tweet also thinks he is more awesomer than his deservation. I honestingly believe all people like Tharoor and other Titterers should stop their Twits forthwithly. ” blubbered an increasingly hapless looking AICC secretary Tom Vadakkan, mangling words with increasing effectiveness. “I have been looking closely at Tharoor's Tits on his Titter feed, and would like to say that such Tits are against Indian culture, and also that of the Congress Party.”, he thundered, inadvertently admitting that the cultures of India and that of its ruling party are two different things altogether.


“What? Tom Vadakkan has been looking at Tharoor's tits? This is against Indian culture”, yelled an irate Congress MP Abhishekh Singhvi. “I am personally against public figures posting their views, leave alone their tits, on internetweb homepagesites such as Twicker.”, he signed off, in a resplendent display of cluelessness. He was later spotted typing 'Shashi Tharoor tits' into Google, and recursively landing up at this very article.


Congress President Mrs.Sonia Gandhi attempts to get a feel for the subject everyone else in this article is talking about.


“Not just Mr.Vadakkan, but the whole nation has been seeing, enjoying and discussing Mr.Tharoor's tits on Twister. There's nothing wrong with this.”, opined BKU president Mahendra Singh Tikait, surprising everyone with his broad-mindedness and his continued existence in one deft stroke. He left shortly thereafter to pursue his efforts at setting fire to Facebook, to protest against the idea of young men and women living on the same planet.


Meanwhile, Mr.Tharoor was back on twitter, tweeting away with gay abandon (ensuring that Google searches for 'Shashi Tharoor Gay' will also point to this article). “Heh. Wonder if ppl realize that I make up half the shit about important conferences with hard-to-name East Eurpoean nations.” he tweeted, following up with “ Nobody even knows which countries are real anymore. Splosnia, Ginormo, Pornasia, Heterosexistan, #FTW ;) ”

Nikhil Pahwa said...

Yay! First 2 comment.

Wait. This isn't the FIP blog, is it?

Deepak Gopalakrishnan said...

So if one is called a tit, the other is called a retit?

Anyway, I'm guessing he's getting tweet or tat. Or wait, teat for twat.

Wouldn't be surprised if some social media expert from India TV (aka someone who knows how to use Google), searches for 'Shashi Tharoor tweets' and lands up on this article and it goes on air as breaking news.

Did the idea start with the pic?

Anand Ramachandran's Evil Twin said...

@idling - oddly enough, no. Imagine my delight when I found it, then.

This article will one day be part of history books. It is the truth!

Arun Sundar said...

I snorted my coke thru my nose as I read this! Very funny!

Raj said...

Anonymous said...

Talking Skull said...

I waited for more than a month for your next post, and honestly, by your high standards, this was a disappointing post.... :-(

But, the couple of posts on Cricinfo, particularly the one on "Bench-warmer cirsis" were Fantastic..

Lavanya said...

You are awesome. :D

Anand Ramachandran's Evil Twin said...

@Arun Er . .how else does one snort coke? ;)

@sarafanclub Thanks for the Saravanakumar love - but it has been mentioned repeatedly that he only gives us his time for longer posts, not mere snippets.

@skull - Guess I have to try harder

Everyone else - thanks for reading.

Big fan btw, Anand Ramachandran! - at what age did you realise this was your style?

Solilo said...

Ha Ha Ha

Having a laugh attack.

Anand Ramachandran's Evil Twin said...

@jeeves - Actually, no. I just searched for Tharoor pics and this popped up. Try it and see.

@whothehelldrawsworms We started doing satire in this format in 2000 - not from any great realization but rather a deep love for MAD and The Onion. And we were dumb enough to think we could do that shit, easy! :) I was 26 at the time.

Unknown said...

Guess I have a headstart then... I'm 19 :D
Maybe you should be reading MY blog :P

Surkhi said...

I was having a really bad day...so i googled tits and behold!

I am so happy now :)

techrsr said...

Hahahaha. This has to be one of your best. How cool will it be if this is the only piece of literature that somehow survives the impending holocaust. We'd find superheroes and urban legends named after twitter, titter, tharoor and tits, even.

Surkhi, I'll take your idea to google "tits" when I have a bad day next time! **smirk** :D

techrsr said...

And, more stories about Thiruneermalavazhappazhatthaithinnavandhavan please!

Not to mention the fake countries mentioned at the end of this post!
