Veg soup for soul
I have great admiration for fitness freaks and bodybuilders. After all, health is wealth.
I went to a friend’s house in Dubai and could not lift the heavy weights at his home gym. This aircraft engineer climbs 24 floors at times to keep fit.
“I would love to be strong like you,” I said.
“You poor veggies. What can you do? Better start eating meat and tandoori chicken,” he teased me.
“Do not forget that robust animals like elephants, hippos and horses are vegetarians,” I countered. A hippo can run at speeds of over 20 miles an hour.
The engineer walked towards me in a circle and passed an awkward look.
“What are you looking for?” I asked him.
“All the three animals you mentioned have a tail. So wondering about you,” he replied.
* I'm not a vegetarian because I love animals, it's because I hate vegetables: Woody Allen.
* Hey, just read a non-veg joke: “Can you remove something from my skirt?” asked a pretty girl.
“Sure, sure. What?” reacted the thrilled guy.
“Your eyes, idiot.”
