---Ondu Shabda A Day Keeps The Constable Away---
Today's word of the day is quite simply, the ultimate putdown/dismissal. It ranks up there with fuck as the most ubiquitous insult known to laymen in good ol' Bengaluru. Considering I put it on the picture, you people pretty much need to know... Wait for it.... Shaata! Literally meaning pubic hair, as in, nim ajji shaata! Your granny's pubes! Now that's an insult! There's even a blog with that name, incidentally! I can thank Bharat and Shikha for turning me on to the word, and I've been spouting off to people ever since.
Cock: Brian, let me sit in the corner today no? Me: Shaata! For what joy? Cock: It's Christmas! Me: My shaata I'll let you sit for Christmas. Cock: So mean! You've ruined Christmas! Me: Tell that to Santa and Hallmark. Shaata bastards!
Damn, I hate Christmas. I'm going to go out and strangle random carol singers in front of their children. Later.
I recently deleted all the posts of my previous blog, The Cult of I. Maybe I should've saved my posts, but screw posterity, they can start with this one instead. I suppose now that it's gone, I can actually talk about it. The Cult of I was my secret journal, where I painstakingly recorded, with unerring accuracy, the-week-that-was for an hour every weekend. To ensure that I published my frank, unedited opinions, I used nicknames and developed my own specifc argot for it. But then, much like a boy on the 27th of december, I got tired of my new toy, and found myself something better to do. Months passed with nary an entry, and in a fit of fassion (atl),
I deleted it all. So now that you're up to speed, welcome to my new blog. *checks watch* Gtg. Leave a comment or bugger off, mmmkay?
