Postman,
Probably you have to remove this post itself :)
Because there are only 26 alphabets and one gets a very limited set of words with combination of vowels in between! that too when you make an intelligent guess taking factors like nationality into consideration.

Pinky said...

thats right....remove the post if u want to avoid similar situation in future...after all, (given the level of unemployment in the country) there is a strong possibility that someone as farigh as me,might come ur way..

PostMan said...

Na I dont think I will remove the post, it has its share of viewership.

Fortunately for me, people are not that 'farigh'! Types like you can be treated Pinky :p

Pinky said...

i m more stable in untreated form...the treatment would render the treator limbless while having little or no effect on me....as u might have noticed on buzzvines, i m a lost cause...
anyway, dont tell me your friend Iola hasn't visited your blog...or is everyone late?

PostMan said...

Even if I am limbless, at least I can make faces :)

You are the 2nd buzzer here. She visited way earlier. She says its not her type of stuff here :)

u once (sort of) accused me of being racist when i found that admin had written a post by her usual misuse of "their" instead of "there"..n i told u i was playing detective...

i guess my brilliant performance on this blog of yours (deciphering ur name)has belatedly proved my innocence...i have inherited this thing frm my father (assuming that such prying is transmitted through genes)

PostMan said...

.. and i explained even in that buzz that I was referring to myself!

How on earth deciphering my name makes you innocent?!

pinky said...

uff ho...it proves that i have this detective instinct...n i was doing some smart detective work on that buzz instead of criticising someone for english mistakes....
kher paray karo, pata nai main itni safayian pesh kyun karti hun...as my cousin would have sad, pichle jannam main jammadar rahi hon ge aap....uh ho,now dont tell me that this was also racism? :P
