CG and I were watching House M.D. and the conversation shifted towards a common friend who had just returned from Moscow after completing his M.D.

Me: Dude JJ just finished his M.D. 

CG: Yeah, I heard. 

Me: Because he did his undergraduate in Moscow, he got awarded a M.D degree. In India its called M.B.B.S. 

CG: Yeah, so?

Me: So, his visiting card / office door would read Dr. JJ, M.D. That’ll be so cool! Just like House, M.D!

CG: Seesh!

Me: Guess what does M.B.B.S stand for?

CG: Master of… wait… Bachelor of…. Ummm… Bachelor of Medicine?

Me: That’s not it! Guess again?

CG: Master of something and Bachelor of Medicine?

Me: It’s an undergraduate course. Masters wont appear in the title.

CG: What does the M.B in M.B.B.S. stand for?

Me: Master of Bastards! 

(I start rolling on the floor, laughing)

CG: Damn! Why is this so hard?

Me: Fine! It’s Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery. 

CG: Then it should be B.M.B.S! 

Me: Yeah, that sounds lame. So they reversed the first two letters. Now, M.B.B.S. sounds way cooler!

CG: Did I just…….. get trolled?! Dafaq! 


The Ultimate Weekend Timepass!

I finally got a weekend off! Only Sunday, that is. It was one of those weekends where I didn’t want to go out. So, I decided to spend Sunday at home with my roomies, CG & MS.

What did we do all of Sunday? Got baked, watched a couple of movies : District 9, Dark Shadows & Looper. Watched some American Dad and finally started watching House MD, season 8.

But IMO, the best part of this weekend was when we would pause whatever we’re watching, play some Booker T & MG’s and ask each other what was happening.

Start Scene

(Pause VLC player. Play ‘Green Onion’ by Booker T & MG’s and they as they say in the internet lingo, the rest was epic)

Me: So guys, whats next?

(MS & CG  laugh so hard that their sides start aching)

MS: Man! Where’d you find this song?

CG: Dude? For real? 

End Scene. 

It was still funny when I repeated that about two hours later and then two later again after that.

Sigh, I got the weekend blues…
