Buy the Best

I was on the bus yesterday, going to my physics tuition, when I happened to look out the window and see this big banner in front of a roadside shop, in plain view of all who passed. Across it, in big letters, was written “BUY THE BEST”, and below it, in even huger letters, the word “COCK”.

I gasped.

Then I noticed, in tiny letters beside cock, the word “BRAND”. It was an ad for some brand of Diwali fireworks, signified by a horizontal line of white and yellow flame under the writing.

This India, she keeps surprising.
