    Watt Knott – A conversation in confusion

    Came across this joke in my inbox that I had forwarded by self back in 2004. Couldn’t help posting it. Read on and enjoy! Enjoy this terrific confusing conversation of William Knott and Mr Watt. “Who’s calling?” was the answer to the telephone. “Watt.” “What is your name, please?” “Watt’s my name.” “That’s what I asked you. What’s your name?” “That’s what I told you. Watt’s my name.” A long pause, and then from Watt, “Is this James Brown?” “No, this is Knott.” “Please tell me your name.” “Will Knott.” YOU LEFT THE TALKERS AT A POINT WHERE THEY WERE TOTALLY CONFUSED,READ THE REST OF WHAT HAPPENED… “Why not?” “Huh?

I quote the purpose of his blog: Take an original photo of my blog with your digital camera or mobile phone and send it to shootmyblogAThotmail.com.

    And my report continues. Not much development in the manholes. It hasn’t gotten worse from yesterday nor has it gotten better. Manhole 1 – Day 11 Manhole 3 – Day 09 Additionally the road situation on the junction has just worsened. Horrible traffic, bad roads, this is Mumbai!

    Manholes – Day 10

    Missed day 09 because I was late for the bus and wasn’t able to snap a pic. However, didn’t miss that much, as Day 10 wasn’t a disappointment at all. Manhole 1 has broken still further. There is nothing left of it. Manhole 3 has worsened still further thanks to road work just adjacent to it. What surprises me is that there was no work being done on Monday and yesterday (Tuesday) morning, the road was all dug up :O Do they work fast or what! Pics below for you to see. Do you folks also have similar scenes in your neighbourhood? Tell me about it.

    Manholes – Day 08

    This is the follow up post from Manholes – Day 03. As I said, I wasn’t able to take pictures of days 04 to 07. However, the BMC hasn’t disappointed me. When I arrived at my stop today, both the manholes in a worse state since that day. Here’s Manhole 01 on the eight day: And Manhole 03 on it’s sixth day: As you can see this has broken down still further. One of the two covers has gone missing and there is water all around the manhole. What’s worse about this manhole is that it is exactly at a right turn, which makes it difficult for vehicles to maneuver…

    Manholes – Day 03

    Following up on my post, we enter the third day. The condition of Manhole 01 hasn’t changed much since yesterday, but neither has it been repaired. And I found another manhole nearby in a much worse state! I won’t be able to get feedback for Day 03 to Day 07, because of a two day training programme I have to attend, plus the weekend. Hopefully, the manholes would be repaired by Monday.
