On one of our mallu meets, Tony was sad that his crush at work was leaving the company for good
Tony: All my sweet dreams are coming to an end today
Me: What were your sweet dreams btw?
Tony: (Took bottoms up) Begum and my weddingâ€¦. Pepae pe paaee pepe (The wedding nadaswaram)
We all cracked into a laughter hearing this
Tony still didnâ€™t get the joke, he continued
Tony: I was planning to ask her out when I have little more money saved so that I can take her out for movies and restaurantsâ€¦ (sobs)
Shreyas: Well Tony I think itâ€™s waste saving money to spend on girls. Rather you should invest your money in property.
Me: Btw did you guys hear about the Damac properties promotion which gives you a private jet if you buy their apartment in Dubai?
Jai: But how is that possible man?
Shreyas: The property will be that expensive that they donâ€™t mind giving away a private jet with the apartment.
Me: May be the apartment is on the Palm Island
Tony: Palm Island? Sounds funny. Why will I ever invest my money in an island? I would rather buy some land in Kakkanad.
Me: Eda you are saying this coz you donâ€™t know what Palm Island is. Itâ€™s worldâ€™s most elite state of the artâ€¦
Tony: â€¦ of the living of the Sri Sri Ravi Sankar?
Again everyone cracked up
Me: Eda itâ€™s a man made island in Dubai in the shape of a palm tree. The place is really expensive that only the rich and famous of the world own properties there.
Shreyas: What if Tony buys land there and he erects a statue of his own with a torch in his handâ€¦
Tony: Hmmmmmmmm then do you know what that statue will be called?
Me: Mmmmm may be Statue of liberty?
Shreyas: Then what?
Tony: Statue of poverty
Tony had a philosophical tone to that answer
