Better than beating the chest, why not laugh your heart out? That’s what disappointed, dejected and despairing Delhiites are doing as the Commonwealth Games stumble from one embarrassment to another.

In the last two days, jokes about the CWG are coming up on people’s Gmail statuses, on Facebook accounts, as tweets and also on cell phone inboxes. Get a sample:

BREAKING NEWS Kalmadi tries to commit suicide but survives as the stadium ceiling collapses!

The CWG organising committee has taken the word ‘village’ a little too seriously.

To the Common-wealth Games’ committee:

Dilli badnaam hui

, darling

tere liye


Will there ever be any light at the end of the tunnel for the CWG, or has the tunnel collapsed as well?


yahan khuda hai, wahan khuda hai... idhar khuda hai , udhar khuda hai... jahan nahin khuda hain, wahan kal khudega...

Kalmadi’s favourite song: CWG

ki naiya hai


ke bharose, apni bhi naiya ko paar tu lagayi de.

Issued in public interest: When walking near CWG venues or while watching the Games IN the stadium, kindly wear a helmet all the time.

Asuvidha ke liye khel hai.

Rain, rain, go away, Suresh Calamity wants to play.

Indian bridge is falling down, falling down...

CWG: “Clogged Water Games”.

This is not rain but tears of Shera, our friendly neighbourhood CWG mascot!

Breaking News: Shera spotted at Delhi Airport trying to flee the country.
