I think everyone can understand this during a pandemic. My wife: "I want to spend the rest of my life with you — just not the rest of my day with you."

🎶 That's the way they all became the Brady Bucs. 🎶🏈 #SuperBowl

"I keep a tight circle of friends" = "I'm generally disliked by most people."

Great news! Rush Limbaugh's still dead today.

Ted Cruz is in Cancun. "Mexico, when we send our people, we're not sending our best."

My wife: "Jeez, I know more about Tiger Woods' medical history than my own."




Name the 6 musicians with 10+ albums that debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart.

Name the 6 original characters and 6 original weapons in the board game Clue.

Name the 6 noble gases on the periodic table of the elements.

Name the 6 monosyllabic countries (in English).


Serious question (for a change):

You're driving. You're at a red light and you see a car approaching you from behind. It's clear that your car is about to be hit.

They say you're supposed to keep your foot on the brake to prevent hitting the car in front of you, which could start a chain reaction of cars hitting more cars. But from a purely selfish standpoint, wouldn't the smart thing be to take your foot off the brake so as to prevent whiplash to yourself? Setting aside the morality of the question, what are the physics?

Since this is a FUNNY Indian Newsletter, I present here the 5 funny things that I saw, heard, wrote, or remembered for the last month... otherwise known as FIVE - Funny Indian's V Events. 

5.  I loved the chart below.

4. I think we all enjoyed the M&M Super Bowl spot.

3. Give it up for my old company for its funny Tide Super Bowl ad.

2. Check out our friend! Sheena Melwani’s TikTok channel is absolutely hilarious.

1. “I’m not a cat.” Who could miss that one?


THANK YOU to all of you for your support. You are my true core of fans — I couldn't do this without you. If you think this may spark joy for your friends during this difficult time, please feel free to forward it along... and Happy Birthday to me… soon… March 7!
