Nice Shelia; Shame About The Name ...

How had this escaped my attention thus far?

Wifey pointed this out to me last night, after someone else had pointed it out to her. Apparently it's been all-the-rage around the traps recently, but Wifey and I were blissfully ignorant.

Take a look at this article, and then this one, and then the top item here.

Let the childish jokes begin.

Oh Boy!! I read the Herald Sun article and I am not sure what is worse - poor Ms Dikshit or that fact that the morons at the HS can't put a sentence together.. since when was insisted 2 words?!?!

My comment has been lost. Maybe it was seditious...

All I said was that I really wanted to hear John So say her name!

Sheriff of Nothing, I noticed that too - how disgraceful, eh.

Clokeeeey, so would I. I'm sure it'd rank right up there with Juan Antonio Samaranch's famous line: "And the wiener is ... Syd-a-ney!"

There may be a delay (anything from a few minutes to 24 hours) after you submit your comment before it appears on the blog.

Most of you will know why this step has been necessary. I apologise for any inconvenience, but not for actually taking this step (as - in reality - all it really means is that you're being spared from reading a lot of disgusting junk).

This is a common Indian name. I first heard of a very famous Indian actress, Marjorie Dikshit, when I was there in the early 90s. She was starring in a Hindi sit-com and was described by my Indan hosts as the "Julia Roberts of India".

Nice to know someone shares my infantile humour for funny names.
The poor woman.

I must've been living under a rock. Thankyou Bevis. I consider myself enlightened! And ready to cringe at the handover due to the immature sniggering that is a given. Oh the pain. How can she not give a - shit? 'Scuse the pun;)

Oh. Right. I've got to WAIT and SEE if my comment was Bevis-worthy.

Sure. No problem.

*sniff*

;)

Elly M C, I wonder how Julia Roberts would feel if she knew she could potentially be described as "the Marjorie Dikshit of America"?

Sublime-ation, absolutely! Bring it on!

Auburn, approved. *tick*

In the interests of feminism she should change it to clitshit. :P I know, lame, but the best i could come up with on a Monday.

I came across her when she was maybe going to come to Australia about 6 months ago (organising *something* for work).

All the people in the tact and diplomacy* department of my employer, kept on spelling her name as dixit in emails. (maybe like VVS Laxman is pronounced lakshman)

I laughed. Lots.

*this is essentially what they do but is not the real name of the department.

It's a disgrace that you laugh at this common name. I suppose you would be amused to learn that I used to work with a guy named, Hardik*, and another guy named Mitool*.

* I swear that these were their real names! Nice guys too.

Oh that is gold.

Pure gold.

That's all I can offer... brain not functioning. Sorry.

Steph, if you say so. Personally, I was thinking that if only the K was a P, then we'd have a high-quality insult going. I realise it'd lose some of its crude edge (of which you appear to be quite the fan, you dirty girl!), but at least it'd sound funnier when the reporter gave quotes like: "'The Games will be great for New Delhi's economy,' Dipshit said."

Elaine, what exactly are you saying? "I had first dibs"?? P-)

John B, hehe. *snorts in laughter* How about their brothers Ridgiddfistuppbottam and Forplayisforgerlz? *buckles over in amusement at immature and racist humour (which is - of course - hilarious to everyone except those without any sense of humour whatsoever).* #

# (Never fear, sarcasm's here.)

Magical_M, it's more than enough, don't you worry. :)

In other news, I'm taking a 'personal day' tomorrow (Tuesday), so I'll fill you in (as promised last week) on what I'll be getting up to - afterwards.

It's nothing terribly exciting, but I said I'd tell you, so I will.

I never lie. I'm like Superman in that regard.

I also look great in blue tights.

bevis you'll make a great parent. the first commandment of good parenting is Never Break a Promise.

because the first commandment of being a child is Never Forget a Promise.

it's only fair i suppose.

buggar, i can't read my word verif. it's thick red letters all bunched up together with lots of ps and bs so their stems run into to each other.

let me try.
i think i've got it.

fly my pretty!

Except obv. today where my letters are nice and blue and separated.

Absolute class. So when is it that the games actually start (or more to the point when is she being presented with the flag)?

Oh bu99er I have just RTFA and found it's happening at the end of March.

Thank you for bringing this to my attention.

Hey! MelbourneGirl, don't laugh. I'm cute in blue tights (although, what's that old adage? Blue and green should never be seen?). Moving on, thanks for the compliment. I'm really looking forward to being a parent one day. And when I make a promise, I always deliver. I hate it when people (usually women, for obvious reasons) say "Never trust a man who says 'trust me'", because that's so offensive to those of us who are always true to our word. It's a generalisation that's always pissed me off and has never amused me at all. I actually find it to be quite destructive to male-female relationships. Anyway, I will be true to my word. (That reminds me, I have three Muppet Questions on the boil and a handful of tags still to come - not to mention about 60 Shout Out / yuyus - but I will deliver them; you can rely on me. Because I promised.)

Whoa, I went a little off-tangent there, didn't I!

Elaine, I do what I can to make things easy for you when you visit. :)

Glenn, welcome! I'm glad you liked the articles (although I was late finding out about them myself). I'm sure there'll be an amusing grab of the pertinent moment online shortly after it happens. We can all have a childish laugh together. :)
