The not-quite-Ramadaan-greetings post (updated)

The best e-card site ever (ever!) has come up with a range of messages just for Ramadaan.
As these have been conceptualised in line with their usual facetious-tongue-on-dockers-clad-butt-cheek offerings, do not send on to people who take themselves too seriously.

They've also introduced a create-your-own e-card function which, as evident below, I thoroughly abused last night.





(As kids, we'd call people who didn't keep their fasts 'kotchcows'. I don't know the etymology behind this one)

"when you care enough to hit send"
here's to bringing back eid spirit with the same originality we put in to the scissor and glue cards we once upon a far away time made

i wanna copycat but i think i have an appreciate-not-create sense of humour

we used to read the litany of what does and does not break fast but insert

swallowing blood from a bleeding bum

instead of gum.

guaranteed to get you sent out of the madressah class with your guffawing mates.

Safiyyah said...

i think kotchcow comes from the urdu/gujerati, kuch - something, kao- eat, but have no idea how it evolved...

Hilarious. Lol. Love findin the etymology of our indian slang. . I can hazard a guess to the last part of the word. Kotchcow . . I think the cow part is perhaps 'khao' meanin 'eat' or 'to eat'. The kotch part baffles me a bit .

KiLLa said...

LoL.. I wont comment.. We had a discussion on this topic i think..

A fast a day keeps Shaytaan at bay..

(lol i cannot post the others) but will contemplate doin a post as u mentioned..
