Once in a soap industry in Japan,
The soap cover was mistakenly packed without soap in it i.e empty box.

To avoid the problem in the future they purchased X-Ray machine of 60 thousand dollars to check whether soap is Packed in every cover or not in assembly line.

Same problem occurred in India
What did they do?

They simply put a fan beside d assembly line. Empty boxes were flown away!

India.. Jugaad and cost cutting me hum duniya ke baap hai!!

Best of Twitter Jokes on Ben Affleck being named as batman.

@DragonflyJonez: Affleck gonna be like "It's the Jokah! Or the Riddlah! Rahbin! Call Commissionah Gahden!"

@sickipediabot: Lets be honest here. If Ben Affleck as Batman ruined your weekend, there wasn't much to ruin in the first place.

@ComedyCentral: Casting Ben Affleck as Batman sounds like something The Joker would do to create a distraction at the nerd bank.

@DepressedDarth: Dear J.J. Abrams, Please make sure Ben Affleck is not in the new Star Wars movie. Sincerely, Everbody.

@meeses: man who directed the latest Oscar winner for Best Picture is going to be directed by the man who did Sucker Punch.

@ChaseMit: In the Ben Affleck version, Batman's parents kill themselves.

@wilw: Really looking forward to seeing Affleck bring the depth and gravitas to Batman that he brought to Daredevil and Gigli.

In olden days when there were no smartphones, men came to know about autocorrect only when they got married.

From the source of the selective tweets posted above, the one that I liked best :


@BRIANMBENDIS: For those wondering why Ben Affleck would agree to be in this movie, I have the answer. my 10-year-old just asked: who's Ben Affleck?

Tweet from @coolfunnytshirt:

Whenever we say 'fast' track courts in India, we should also remember that Balaji & Munaf are also called 'fast' bowlers in India!!

Closing the Divorce and Alimony case of Santa Singh vs Preeto. Singh...
Judge : I have reviewed this case carefully and have decided to give your wife alimony of Rs 20,000 per month.
Santa: That's very fair, your honor. And whenever possible I'll also try to give her some money myself!! 

Beta - "Mom, Love marriage karne se ghar wale naaraz hote hain kya..?"
.
.
Maa - "Tu zaroor kisi chudail ke chakkar mein hoga, aur ye sab tujhe usi daayan ne kaha hoga....
Ladkiyan to bas ladkon ko phansaane mein hi lagi rehti hain..
Jahan Accha Ladka dekha nahin ki
shuru ho gaye...
Beta in se bach ke rehna.. ye bahut makkaar aur KAMEENI hoti hain, aur inka to khandaan bhi…........"

Beta - "Bas maa, aisa kuch nahi hai,
Wo to Daddy bata rahe the ke Aap Dono ki Love marriage hui thi.."


PS: did not translate in English as the fun of the joke would not be there.

Cheers..!!
