The week in re(ar)view
Wet and wild
You see, the president taking over as chief advisor was apparently not a nice thing to do. He was supposed to have held a feast with imported food and bottled, sparkly, alcohol enriched water. And he was also supposed to get some legal permissions as well.
Many opposed this move and decided to do something drastic about it. So they took days to form a writ petition challenging the legality of the president's move. But before the petition could even be admitted, the chief issued a stay order on the proceedings. In other words, he reacted before others could act which was not a good thing here. Normally people submit a petition and then the top brass protest.
Tea parties galore

Bill Gates picks his own Punishment
Satan greets him: "Welcome Mr. Gates, we've been waiting for you. This will be your home for all eternity. You've been selfish, greedy and a big liar all your life. Now, since you've got me in a good mood, I'll be generous and give you a choice of three places in which you'll be locked up forever.
Satan takes Bill to a huge lake of fire in which millions of poor souls are tormented and tortured. He then takes him to a massive coliseum where thousands of people are chased about and devoured by starving lions. Finally, he takes Bill to a tiny room in which there is a bottle of the finest wine sitting on a table. To Bill's delight, he sees a PC in the corner. Without hesitation, Bill says "I'll take this option."
"Fine," says Satan, allowing Bill to enter the room. Satan locks the room after Bill.
"That's what everyone thinks" snickered Satan.

Alice in Blunderland
This story is based on actual fictional eventss
Alice is a cute little sweet greedy pain-in-the-neck girl who wants every furry cute little thing she sees. Bunny rabbits have a habit of hopping away singing hip-hop tunes. When Alice sees one she's gotta have it! So she runs after the rabbit not realizing that any moment the rabbit will jump down an open manhole which the rabbit consequently does.
Dumb girl does not look where she is going and falls in. She falls for a really long time and starts to think deep future thoughts about what she would like to do when she grows up. Just when she starts having delusions of grandeur, she lands with a crunch on top of a table. Looking around she sees the rabbit, a large mouse and a weird little man wearing a top hat calling himself The Mad Hatter. They all seem not just disgruntled, but very, very 'gruntled'.
The reason being that the Mad Hatter was having tea party with his friends when this guy called Yesuddin and his lady cohorts Khala Daa (Auntie Cleaver) and Haashi Na (Miss No-Laughing-Matter) crashed in. Yesuddin wants to treat the ladies to tea cause that's all he can do. The ladies just want to bicker all day because that's all they can do. They end up ruining the whole party.
The Mad Hatter at one point gets disgusted with their bickering and gets up. “I may be mad, but I am not insane. This is ridiculous,” he exclaimed. “Where I talk in silly verses and make sense, you ladies talk all day in normal sentences and make nonsense.” With that historical remark he and the others got off and walked away.
In the meantime, Alice sat back watching all this in awe thinking that some day she will grow up to rule the country called Bangladesh. Except she will name the country after herself and hang her portraits everywhere. Greed has no limits.
Moral of the story: Manholes are dirty and contain all kinds of junk inside. Too bad we can't throw all the junk around us down there and seal the lid.
