Know the feeling when you come across a funny post amid the otherwise boring newsfeeds on Facebook? Well, here’s a book that’ll do the same good to you on a mundane or hectic day. Titled, Tere Social Status Ki Aisi Ki Taisi, it’s a compilation of fun Facebook posts by Rahul Kishore, a media professional, who is at his wittiest best when posting statuses on the social networking sites.

In-your-face quips, jokes, sarcasm, satire, digs at political moves, and what not — the author’s posts range from being hilarious, candid and intelligent to provocative and chauvinistic. Sample this: “You know what I did before I married? Anything I wanted to!”, “Prostitution is the only industry where freshers are paid more than the experienced!”, “If your father is a poor man, it is your fate. But if your father-in-law is a poor man, it’s your stupidity”.

“Facebook: The second most popular word that starts with ‘F’ and ends with ‘K’”, “Treat your girl right, or another guy will.”, “Indians are so respectful…We address even our SCAMS with ‘Ji’. 2G, 3G, CWG… Feel like going to the loo G!”, “Oxymoron: Happily Married”, “Due to inflation, a picture is now only worth 350 words.” and “Never criticise your wife’s judgement… Look who she married.”

Reading the posts, page after page, you might get a feeling that you’ve heard or read some of the quips before, but they’re funny nevertheless. And the book’s layout — colourful quotes, blurbs and illustrations here and there — add to the reading experience.

Interestingly, this book does not have a price tag, and is not available at book stores either. So, if you wish to get your hands on a copy, tickle the author’s funny bone with an original joke or FB post by mailing it at rahulkis@gmail.com, and you may just get a copy in your mailbox.
