Surely you’ve been tagged in one of those group pictures on facebook now? You know that picture, the one with a bunch of cartoon faces with titles like “little miss psycho” and the lot. Well, not little miss psycho maybe, but you get my drift.

Its actually pretty interesting, the tagging. But somehow, it doesn’t represent the clique/stereotype sets from where I come from.I never went to school with gangstas, pimps and ladies men.

I went to school, with these guys.

Bet you did, too.

    @chokkathangam
    Dunno, muththu was inspired by this cadbury’s ad where amitabh starts giving away dairy milk because “muththu” (a 40 year old dude, as we come to know 10 seconds later) passed SSLC.
    IIT class sundaram, well, there was an IIT class sivaram in my class, and sundaram is pretty close yea πŸ˜€

    @atul
    thanks! Theeni pandaram means glutton. He’s the guy who’d patrol the class during lunch times and eat your lunch, your friends’ lunch, go back to his friends, eat their lunch and then go to the canteen and eat 3 samosas and finally come back to class, 5 minutes before the bell to eat his own lunch. πŸ˜€ Surely you had one of those in class?

    @ranj
    Thanks so much! And you have a crush on me? If only I got a nickel everytime i heard someone say that…..lol lol.

    @gradwolf
    considering the no of faarin peoples who comment here, it would be wise if you could disclose the identity. And yes, I am feeling very bulbish today.

    @codemastercool

  6. hehe, it’s strange how I have a ‘cool’ before my name. Well being the modest person that I am, i shall just accept what’s been given to me. πŸ˜›

  7. @Barani
    Thats interesting, actually. Because the govind i know is one accused. We call him ganja govind. πŸ˜€
    But yea, IIT sundaram and thayirsaadham cover the “fruittu” deptt

    @gradwolf
    Lol no comments. Ask me no questions and I’ll tell you no lies πŸ˜€

    @inbavalli
    genius! We should collaborate πŸ˜€

    @shankar
    Truth be told, cool shankar was inspired by khaaka khaaka, in this one scene where this ruffian bullies a school girl into “louwing” his co-ruffian because he was “very cool”. i do believe the dialog goes, “en di? engannanukku enna korachal? avan romba coolanavan di”
    God bless tamil cinema.

  8. Lol……those names/caricatures are funny. I went to PSBB as well, so I can totally relate to the character representations. Dunno what I’d have been called though! πŸ˜›

  9. @Brat
    Psbb? wow, I thought you were some white dude on twitter. Lol.
    Nungambakkam?

    @govind
    adei! I think you would have preferred ganja govind to fruittu govind anyway. πŸ˜€

    @gradwolf
    Sathyasodhanai! Comment pannadhennu sonnela, paaru palani tension aayitu onna asingasingama telugu la thittaran.

  10. @Coconut Chutney: Lol……now, why would you think I was some random white guy? And no, I wasn’t in Nungambakkam, I went to the K.K.Nagar branch. I’m assuming you went to Nungambakkam?

  11. Hey Chutney Case, accidentally stumbled upon your blog yesterday and I have been reading through each and every one of your hysterical posts. Have been laughing consistently throughout. Frigging hilarious! Especially Mama Mam, when golu bommais attack SuperPoke(tm) and your random quirks.

    Gawd I totally have a crush on you! OK, let me stop before I embarrass myself more. But, honestly a genuine thank you making me laugh so hard.

  12. Aiyo aiyo, sirippu sirippaa varudhey πŸ˜€

    There really was a Sundaram in my IIT class — and guess what, he looked just like that. No kidding.

    You forgot to include another person in that list — ‘Lollu Lavanya’ πŸ˜›

  13. @brat
    yep, nungambakkam all the way!

    @enigmatic puppy
    Aww! πŸ™‚ and like I said, if only I had a nickel every time I heard that…lol Thanks and keep coming! However, in case you look like Surya/Milo Ventimglia (or whatever that Peter Petrelli guy’s name is), I’d like to let you know I’m single πŸ˜‰

    @N
    glad you enjoyed it! and thats the thing about IIT sundarams, theyre like this separate species of human.
    And if I’m lollu lavanya, what are you? Naatupuram N? πŸ˜› πŸ˜›

    @srividya
    Lol, none of us were. πŸ™‚

  14. Teacher amma looks like Disco Damanjit (if you went to school in the north). Without the the bindi and the specs of course!

    Drew them yourself?

  15. The ‘Theeni Pandaram’ is so cute!
    My mom used to call me that… πŸ˜›
    Really cute… awesome post!
    Addicted to your blog now πŸ™‚
