Millionaire Petitions


I support this petition for millionaires who are insulted by the movie “Slumdog Millionaire”, which equates them to dogs that live in slums. Or slums that live in dogs. Something like that.

I’m qualified to do so as I own Rs. 2 and 30 paise, which is currently equal to a million zimbabwean dollars.

That petition is in the same vein as that of Tapesh Vishwakarma, who has decided, unilaterally, that the film calls Indians dogs, and equates them with slum dwellers. Wait. No, it equates two of the three, and Tapesh-ji is miffed at the combination, though others may be ok, conditions apply.

I would also like to petition against Dharmendra who, in his movies, has called people “kutte!”, which is dog in Hindi. And against certain members of a KREC group of 1996, of which I was a part, which also included a certain member whose nickname was “Patti”, and whom we called that incessantly during our bus journey to Kasargod, in Kerala. Patti means dog in Malayalam, for those of you who don’t know, and we didn’t.

Incidentally “Patti” is also a millionaire, at least in Zimbabwean dollars. So I think we should sue the slums.

We need a bailout just so we can talk.
