Marx and Sourav Ganguly

Really, can't Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee and Jyoti Basu find something better to fight about?

Just like that, I imagine Buddhadeb, Jyoti and Sourav in a bar. They're arguing about who has more courage.

"I charge out to fast bowlers regularly to hit them for six," says Sourav. "I did it to Laxmi Ratan Shukla just yesterday."

"You should see me withstand Prakash Karat," says Buddhadeb. "He knows I'm a capitalist and have a portrait of Marx inside my commode, and keeps thumping me with his fists when we are alone. But I can take it."

"Heh," says Jyoti. "Both of you are wimps. I have the most courage."

"Why?" asks Sourav.

"Why?" asks Buddhadeb.

"Because," says Jyoti, "I agreed to be the last person in this joke to speak even though I don't have a funny punchline."

Sorry. Here, try this thought: If Buddhadeb had an exceedingly hot daughter, would she be called Buddhababe?
