Porcupine! ;)

Sitting through a sitcom and laughing away is cool, but finding humor when you least expect it
is cooler! After 15 mins of fidgeting around the channels, i finally landed on HGTV.
Yep, Home and Garden Television.

A programme on Condos was running. These modern day condos with huge glass windows overlooking something amazing like a mountain or a river or something. It kind of reminded me of Fountainhead, when Roark builds such apartments. So i wanted to see more. Initially i was paying attention to the building wondering how you can live without walls. A huge hall defined only by different kinds of furniture placed here and there. Then i noticed this old couple who owned this condo being interviewed by this guy from HGTV.

They both looked very bright and there was something quirky about the old gentleman and the lady herself was an ardent student of yoga who was strictly vegetarian. They looked perfect together, he smiled easily but it was getting obvious that he was getting mildly irritated by this young fellow who was asking all sorts of serious and sometimes dumb questions. This gentleman was trying to lighten the mood but our man persisted on.

By now they were in the last room( which was the kitchen. She was vegetarian but the old man was not. He tried to experiment with many things crawling, walking, swimming... Our man was bang on the question

our man: What? she is veg.. you are not. How do you manage? You don't have 2 kitchen spaces, i find it difficult to imagine how you do that!

ol' man: (took a moment b4 replying) Just like how porcupines make love, CAREFULLY!

I was laughing my sides off and our man stood rooted, zapped.
