Till death do them part

A matrimonial advertisement on the site of a leading webmail provider informs one that Maya, 25, is a surgeon and basketball player who believes in a relationship that’s based on trust. Another site reveals that Smitha, also 25, is an associate editor who bakes delicious cakes. However, after a careful study of their photographs, one swears upon all that is dear to oneself that these two are in fact *adopts low Hitchcockian tone* the same individual. She must be really eager to get on with the nuptials.

In other news, the following has been spotted on Wikipedia's main page :

Did you know .. that Socks the cat belonged to Bill Clinton while President of the United States?


And, being in a particularly sadistic frame of mind right now, one shall subject the unsuspecting reader to the *drum-roll, trumpets etc* PJ of the week:

Q : What did Sanjay Dutt say when he met Hector Hugh Munro?
A. O Saki Saki re … Saki Saki .

Babel : But .. but .. they weren't matrimonial websites, they were mail websites! And one has accounts with them .. God promise!

(And one is rather concerned about your eyebrows. They have been under much tension on this blog recently.)

Sue : Welcome, and thank you. One lives in the south of the country, in Eindhoven.

Monk : Yeah, she is kind of pretty, ain't she!

One has to be very wise with an eye for detail to make that observation.
