I was browsing the internet and came across this ad in Olx karachi.

The advertisement is for a totaled Honda City; while there is nothing wrong or funny about selling scrap, what cracked me up was the description of the ad:

"Assalamu Alaikum!!
I want to sale my honda city only front is hited from back is totaly safe
Car with CNG and Petrol original number plates and chassis number plate (tikly) is saved."

Here's a screenshot!

Nice one Anoop! In Suhaas's case we'll have a lawyer and a MOD!

Now I get the real meaning to the title of this thread - its joking about the TBHP officials that is why it is called as "The "Official" jokes thread".

Mods: No, the above post is not mine. Noop had a gun on Hawk and hawk had a knife on my throat.

It was a practical session in the psychology class.
The professor showed a large cage with a male rat in it. The rat was in the middle of the cage. Then, the professor kept a piece of cake on side and kept a female rat on the other side. The male rat ran towards the cake and ate it. Then, the professor changed the cake and kept some bread. The male rat ran towards the bread.
This experiment went on with the professor changing the food every time. And, every time, the male rat ran towards the food item and never towards the female rat.Professor said: This experiment shows that food is the greatest strength and attraction.
Then, one of the students from the back rows said:- "Sir, why don't you change the female rat?
She may be his wife!

Tejas@perioimpl's post in the Thar CRDe thread deserves special mention here:

1. The power outlet draws more current -> more strain on alternator to charge battery -> engine needs to do more work for this -> won't meet CMVR norms then.

It was there in vehicle 521 during a brief test period but due to CMVR could not be transferred to production.

2. We have all the necessary drawings and engineering diagrams ready for this. However, to get is approved is a process -> nowadays even having lunch has to become a process -> if i can't eat my lunch without filling a form, i'll be damned if i'm gonna give you a power socket.

3. It will be released in version 3 of the Thar

4. The dealer has been given the necessary drawings for the fitment -> however, in a large environment where there are innumerable variables, proper implementation of robustly designed processes is the only way to succeed, but they must not be at the cost of the customer and the product. This is an area where improvement is required, hence mentioning it. If this is implemented, quality and value proposition of the business that the dealer does will improve significantly. Accessories is just a small part of it and the marketing department thinks that the customer can live without a power socket.

However, if you want to add it, PM me and i will guide you in totality.

5. You did not mention requirement of power socket in the thread where you were asked what you wanted in the new jeep. Please read correctly.

6. As you are aware, we started designing on a shoe string budget and we just couldn't afford to incorporate the power source in our drawings -> let me explain why -> a power source comes under the technical heading titled External Output of Battery Power for Consumer Electronic Gadgets (EOBPCEG). Now for this we would need to have a separate department to formulate ideal guidelines which would be need to meet CMVR guidelines. Thus, we would have to assign a manager, a law expert, an engineer for drawing the necessary guidelines. Then get a CAD guy to do drawings, etc etc etc. Also we would need to assign then a special cafeteria with cooks, waiters and washers since nowadays getting lunch has also been a process.

7. The power outlet could be used in conjunction with a cigarette lighter to light your smokes. However, since our exhaust already leaks into the body and our perfectly engineered soft top is so good that it keeps all the exhaust smoke inside, we thought it was our moral responsibility to discourage you from smoking.

8. Reason for not having a power socket is simple, it is cost. In my opinion, it is not a compulsory feature. We can debate this point to death for nothing so spare me the agony all of you, but in the interest of simplicity also, I would not advocate having it, it serves no great purpose. In our time, we used to do all navigation without GPS and used the sun and stars for getting our bearings and ofcourse there were no mobile phones at that time. Invest in a good foot pump, will give you a good workout as well.

In summary: the 521 did the examm and akc without the need for a power outlet. it was a true thar and even beat a race spec honda civic which had a power outlet on the highway. The power outlet thus also sucks out valuable power.

Got it as a SMS forward:

What Americans are thinking: "We have explored Mars too, now we will try for the next planet."

What Chinese are thinking: "We are doing manufacturing for 90% of top brands, let us try and improve on that."

What Indians are thinking: "Electricity went from 6-8 in the morning and was there during 8-10, it again went from 10-12 and came back. It may go again for 2-4 Now its 1:45, let me store some drinking water."

Not sure if this is the right forum but it certainly made me laugh when I spotted it.

This was parked in the middle of car parking of the largest mall in Ahmedabad. The owner must have been confused about where his vehicle belongs. Scooter parking or Car parking???
