Humor: Attorney-Witness Disorder in American Court!


These are from a book called 'Disorder in the American Courts' and are things people actually said in court, word for word, taken down and now published by court reporters that had the torment of staying calm while these exchanges were actually taking place. 
(Lawyers are not going to like them!)

ATTORNEY: This myasthenia gravis, does it affect your memory at all?
WITNESS: Yes.
ATTORNEY: And in what ways does it affect your memory?
WITNESS: I forget.
ATTORNEY: You forget? Can you give us an example of something you forgot?- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Stuffed Eggplant Potato Onion Curry (Bharwan Baingan Aloo Pyaaz Sabji)

In this bharvan baingan aloo pyaaz sabzi made with Maharashtrian style gravy, instead of all three vegetables any single vegetable can also be used.  Below I have posted the original recipe of Stuffed Eggplant Potato Onion Curry (Bharwan Baingan Aloo Pyaaz Sabji) from Shobha Indani's cookbook 'Swad Sugandh', but keeping everything else as it is, I have cooked only with eggplants (aka brinjal / aubergine), making bharwan baingan here.  This stuffed eggplant sabji (bharvan baigan) with Maharashtrian flavor is very different from the Hyderabadi specialty stuffed eggplants (bangara baingan).

What you need:

For paste:
For sabji:
1 Tbsp Oil
6 small Onions
3 whole Dry Red Chillies
6 small Eggplants (I used 5 though)
1 Bay Leaf
6 small parboiled Potatoes
2 pcs Cinnamon Sticks
2 Tbsp Oil
2 Cloves

2 Cardamoms
For tempering:
1 cup thinly sliced Onion
½ tsp Mustard Seeds
5 cloves Garlic
½ tsp Cumin Seeds
1 tsp grated Ginger
Pinch Asafoetida
2 Tbsp chopped Cilantro

2 Tbsp grated & lightly roasted Dry Coconut
For garnishing:
1 Tbsp roasted Sesame Seeds
1 Tbsp chopped Cilantro
1 Tbsp Khus-Khus (Poppy Seeds) *I didn't use*
1 Tbsp grated Coconut
¼ cup roasted & shelled Peanuts

½ tsp Turmeric Powder
2 tsp Red Chilly Powder
Serves: 4 – 6
1 Tbsp Coriander-Cumin Powder
½ tsp Garam Masala
Salt to taste (I used 1 tsp)

Poetry: Ah, Love!

I'm not sure if the meaning in this poem is clear, but here's another one I wrote 8 years ago.
Looking back at it now, I feel like such a nutcase, haha.

Inspirational Message: Stop Comparing Start Living

We live in a pathologically dissatisfied world. And I'm going to tell you why. Because we love to compare. Go around the world and discover that people aren't happy with their bodies.  Filipinos want to be fair-complexioned like Westerners, and so buy bleaching stuff. Westerners want to own bronzed bodies like ours, and so purchase tanning lotions.

Those with moles have them removed, while those who don't strategically implant beauty spots.

Some people want to shed a few pounds to look like Ally McBeal, while others want to gain some baby fat to look like Drew Barrymore.

When are we ever going to stop and simply be happy with how we look?
