Gujju RSVP

Kanjibhai was preparing wedding cards for their son at the printers.

Kanjibhai was not very good at English so he asked the printer to help him.

After the printer had presented Kanjibhai with a draft , Kanjibhai quickly pointed out that the " RSVP " was missing .

The printer was surprised by Kanjibhai's knowledge and asked him if Kanjibhai knew what it meant.

Kanjibhai started to think and after much thought he replied :

"Vait! I remember! I remember! RSVP!! It means "Remember, Send Vedding Present!"

The Outhouse

Once there was a little boy called Rohit who lived in the country.

They had to use an outhouse, and Rohit hated it because it was hot in the summer, cold in the winter and stank all the time.
The outhouse was sitting on the bank of a creek and the boy determined that one day he would push that outhouse into the river.
One day after a spring rain, the creek was swollen so Rohit decided today was the day to push the outhouse into the river.

So he got a large stick and started pushing.

Finally, the outhouse toppled into the river and floated away.

That night his dad Kanjibhai told him they were going to the woodshed after supper.

Knowing that meant a spanking, the little boy asked why.

Kanjibhai replied, "someone pushed the outhouse into the river today. It was you, wasn't it, son?"

Rohit answered yes.

Then he thought a moment and said,

"Dad, I read in school today that Gandhiji chopped down a Pipal tree and didn't get into trouble because he told the truth."

The dad replied, "well, son, Gandhiji's father wasn't in that Pipal tree!"

The Broken Mirror

Kanjibhai and Ramjibhai were getting ready for the company awards dinner for the best salesman.

Kanjibhai was in the running to win an award that evening and wanted to make sure he looked his best when he claimed his prize.

He felt his luck was with him and was sure to win.

He stood in front of the mirror to fix his tie but the mirror was crooked, so he reached over to straighten it out and it came crashing down on the floor.

"Oh no," said Kanjibhai. "Now I am going to have seven years bad luck."

"Nonsense," said Ramjibhai. My uncle once broke a mirror and he didn't have seven years bad luck."

"Really?" said Kanjibhai, feeling much better knowing that.
"Yeah really," said Ramjibhai. "He died that day."

The Flight

The passengers were leaving the Air India plane after landing, and one smiling, satisfied Kanjibhai paused to congratulate the flight attendant.

"Stewardess," Kanjibhai said happily, "I want to compliment you and the crew and especially the captain for getting here right on time.

It's not often that an airline gets to where it's going exactly when they claim it will.

I'm going to call your Air India home office and let them know how pleased I am."

"Why, thank you, sir," the flight attendant answered,

"but I think you should know--this is yesterday's flight."

The Deaf Gujju

Kanjibhai is talking to the family doctor.

"Doc, I think my wife Rupaben going deaf."

The doctor answers, "Well, here's something you can try on her to test her hearing. Stand some distance away from her and ask her a question.

If she doesn't answer, move a little closer and ask again.
Keep repeating this until she answers.
Then you'll be able to tell just how hard of hearing she really is."

Kanjibhai goes home and tries it out. He walks in the door and says,
"Muna ni Ba , what's for dinner?"

He doesn't hear an answer, so he moves closer to her.
"Eh are you listening , what's for dinner?"
Still no answer.

He repeats this several times, until he's standing just a few feet away from her.

Finally, Rupaben answers,
"For the eleventh time, I said we're having THEPLA!"
