Shambo - What a Bull...

This is gotta be the most bizarre story to come out in the news lately. A bull by the name of Shambo got infected by TB in Wales. He was supposedly a "sacred" bull of the local Indian community. Govt. of Wales decided to put the bull down as a precaution, as it had slaughtered other bulls with the same disease, in the past. The whole NRI community went up in arms against this decision. They gherofied the complex where the bull was housed so that authorities could not take it away.

Mr. Shambo in all its glory

U Rekha!!! NRIs have an idea...

NRIs come with a typical NRI-mentality idea to solve this issue. Let's send this TB infected bull to India. Wow, why didn't I think of that?? India is already plagued with millions of diseases, what difference will one TB-infected bull make. And, even if the bull ends up infecting other bulls (who knows it may be sacredly very gay) then, kya farak padtha hain yaar, India main toh sab chalta hain.

Rekha ko maine aise dekha...

I have a better idea. How about we send those NRIs to India to live with the bull? I am sure they won't mind that and will come back running. Indians are already plagued with millions of people with such over-hyper religious mentality, what difference will one TB-infected-bull-with-NRIs-in-tow make. And, even if the bull ends up infecting these NRIs (who knows bull may have a bad taste) then, kya farak padhta hain yaar, India main toh sab chalta hain.

Oh what a BS!!

Mr. Shambo was finally laid to rest today, when it was put in a grave. Unfortunately, the grave was owned by another NRI (As one Gujju bhai famously said "If death is inevitable then there is money to be made in that too"), who could only say, "Bull Sit, Bull Sit..."

Disclaimer: This post is also plagued by a disease called TS...err...Terrible Sarcasm.

Haha...yeah indeed this news was apt for the Reuters Oddly Enough news. I could hardly believe what I was reading when I first read about it. So finally Shamboji was laid to rest...but not before creating a stir in the world. He sure must be the most famous sacred animal ever!
