Be Neighbourly

a. If you are in a Hindu neighbourhood, hold frequent BBQ’s with whole-roast sides of beef. If you want to be hard-core, hold them in the front yard.

b. If you are the Hindu person in the white neighbourhood, fry garlic in a Bessemer converter in the back yard. Wait until the wind is favourable to carry the smell to everyone else. Wear a gas mask.

c. Lawn mowers are meant to be heard and the best time to make them sing is when everything else is silent. 3:00AM is a quiet hour.

e. ” Granny , does your dog bite? “

” Yes, child. Yes “
