Just the other day, I was watching Laughter Challenge on TV and, as always, I was laughing harder at Siddhu’s antics than at those of the participants. With the way he laughs, it is a wonder he does not fall off his chair!

Have a look at Siddhu laughing his head off in one of my favourite episodes of the Challenge:

I find his laughter contagious! Almost always, it catches on to me! 🙂

Siddhu’s laughter and his one-liners are probably the closest I will ever get to cricket. I simply adore his ‘Sixers’ – his one-liners, what I call Satvams [(S)iddhu’s Th(atvams)]. He has got a hell of a sense of humour and wit. I leave you with a few of my favourite Satvams, which had me either ROFL or pondering:

~ There is light at the end of the tunnel for the team, but it’s that of an incoming train which will run them over.

~ We are all Adam’s children – it’s just the skin that makes all the difference.

~ The Srilankan score is running like an Indian taxi meter.

~ He will fight a rattlesnake and give it the first two bites too.

~ He’s wallowing in foolishness like a rhino in an African pool.

~ Beauty, even when silent, is eloquent.

~ He is like an Indian three-wheeler, which will suck a lot of diesel, but cannot go beyond 30!

~ Faith in your abilities will help you face the music, even if you don’t like the tune.

~ You aren’t rewarded for having brains, you are rewarded for using them.

~ That ball went so high it could have got an air hostess down with it.

~ The only thing you get in life without trying is dandruff.

~ Winning is not important, but wanting to win is.

~ You can take the tiger out of the jungle, but you can’t take the jungle out of the tiger.

~ Statistics are like mini skirts. What they reveal is tantalising, but what they hide is crucial.

~ An optimist is one who looks at bullshit and sees fertiliser.

~ All that comes from a cow is not milk.

~ In London, they drive on the left. In India, we drive on what is left.

~ Troubles are like babies. The more you nurse them, the bigger they grow.

~ I have seen many ladies displaying different styles and different styles displaying ladies.

Ciao! Keep laughing!

  1. Good collection, Priya. Only wish Sidhu gets back to more active commentary on cricket 🙂 He also does a show on NDTV these days about cricket and its almost always poor Jadeja-a co expert on the panel, who is at the receiving end 🙂

  2. Just watched the video. Oh, good indeed. Shall make sure to watch the program next time 🙂

  6. Siddhu is a thicko 😐 He makes one laugh nevertheless, with his antics. And i DO NOT like the great indian laughter challenge, because the judges laugh for no reason 😐 Crazy people ! And comedy circus too – Archana Puran Singh ! God ! She makes me want to strangle her 😐

  7. he he..he must be the best speaker around..
    u argue with him and u are dead and then he would even proove u are alive..

    “And i DO NOT like the great indian laughter challenge, because the judges laugh for no reason ” – that is precisely what makes ME laugh! 🙂 and yes, siddhu does make one laugh with his histrionics…
