It’s hot news everywhere on the internet, Bill Gates appearance on The Daily Show with John Stewart. Even though I didn’t get a chance to watch it live on TV yesterday I can still watch the video archive, thanks to ComedyCentral.com. They’ve put out the video for the public.

Here is the Part-1 of the video archive for those of us who missed the live show,

And here is the Part-2 of the video,

In case if you are not able to see the embedded videos here are the URL’s for both the parts,

It seems like an issue with their plugins that forces you to click these extra steps. Sorry for any inconvenience.)

I really liked the moment when John asked about Bill’s pet name and there was a little lag time when the world’s richest man realized that it was a plot to get his password. Even though I’m sure he won’t have his pet name as the password but that was a nice play in context from John.

…come home and see the site in my computer.

I came across this somewhere on a site where it says “This site is optimized for IE/Firefox” and I thought it’s a bit humorous and different.

Do you like it?

Humor Factor – An Indian Joke

In Humor on November 10, 2006 at 9:45 am

I don’t remember where I came across this but here is a bit of something to smile about.

An American decided to write a book about famous churches around the world.

So he bought a plane ticket and took a trip to China. On his first day he was inside a church taking photographs when he noticed  a golden telephone mounted on the wall with a sign that read “$10,000 per  call”.

The American, being intrigued, asked a priest who was strolling by what  the  telephone was used for. The priest replied that it was a direct line to heaven and that for  $10,000  you could talk to God. The American thanked the priest and went along his way.

Next stop was in japan. There, at a very large  cathedral, he saw the same golden telephone with the same sign under it. He wondered if this was the same kind of telephone he saw in china and he  asked a nearby nun what its purpose was. She told him that it was a direct line to heaven and that for $10,000 he  could talk to God. ”O.K., thank you,” said the American.

He then traveled to Russia, Germany, France, Sri Lanka and Pakistan.

In every church he saw the same golden telephone  with the same “$10,000 per call” sign under it.
Finally he thought he would stop by at India to see if they have the same phone there as well.

He arrived in India, and again, in the first church he entered, there was the same golden telephone, but this time the sign under it read “One Rupee per call.”

The American was surprised so he asked the priest about the sign.

“Father, I’ve traveled all over the world and I’ve seen this same golden telephone in many churches. I’m told that it is a direct line to Heaven and so it was priced at $10,000 per call.
 Why is it so cheap here?”

The priest smiled and answered, “You’re in India now, son – it’s just a local  call”.
