You Know You’re a Pakistani When…… (Part 3)

• You know you’re a pakistani when the fastest car is the toyota corolla
• You know you’re a pakistani when you ask the driver to bring groceries from the store across the street

    TM sahab, too bad that you blinked and caved in to the flimsy objections of a few.

    If taken in a light vein with a sense of humor, there was nothing objectionable about your previous posts.

    Oh well, the vocal minority wins again because they shout the loudest.

    Fasial – my previous posts were meant to be humorous and not to be mistaken as derogatory which a few readers misunderstood it as.

    I usually don’t care for a few flaming comments but I felt the conversation distracted people from the humor, so this post I choose to step back as I felt it was not the proper post to pick a fight again and maybe irritate a few friends who may find the Paki term objectionable.

    Tell me if you finally qualify to be a 100% Pakistani….?

    TM sahab, as an aside, allow me to say that all three sets were rather humorous and enjoyable

    umm…just one question – is this only for pakistani men? and if it is, then why don’t you put ‘you know you’re a pakistani MAN when…’? just a little disturbing when you try to aim for all pakistanis and blatantly ignore what its like to be a pakistani woman.

    Curious – Naturally this is a perspective of a Pakistani Male, why not venture and create a list for a typical pakistani woman, would be fun reading such a list.

    I assure you there was no intentional sexual discrimination ;)


  7. Anon - the original one (unregistered) on January 28th, 2006 @ 9:15 pm

    Much better this time.
    Faisal, I would not consider those flimsy objections, they were valid points. And that TM decided to acquiesce to those does not automatically translate to capitulation (or caving in) but that he was considerate of others. But, that is quite a Pakistani trait, never acknowledging your mistakes (witness our leaders), so that can be added to the next list.
    Being a Pakistani means you never need to say you are sorry ;)
    Oh, and whoever is going to compile the Pakistani female list, please add this:
    You know you are a Pakistani female when you and all your friends are blonde.

    anon – the original one….

    the “blonde” comment really tickled my funny bone
    hilarious!

    Once again, most of the quotes comes true for me…..man I think I am as Pakistani as they come.

    lolzz @ • You know you’re a pakistani when you ask the driver to bring groceries from the store across the street

    according to this series… I am not a Pakistani :D… Thanks to Allah.


  12. wasiq (unregistered) on January 29th, 2006 @ 2:46 am

    Dear Mr Haleem nobody doubts this… but iam sure after part 3 you are still five (5) less than Dr Rice.


  13. shobz (unregistered) on January 29th, 2006 @ 4:26 am

    you know you are a pakistani when you adopt an american accent in pakistan despite having lived in the uk for 2-3 years. thats what i call a pretentious pakistani.


  14. shobz (unregistered) on January 29th, 2006 @ 4:27 am

    you forgot to add you know you are a pakistani when you buy the same brand of perfume everyone else is buying and you end up spraying half the bottle on ur body and clothes before you leave the house (thus maiming a dozen innocent people with the toxic fumes on ur way out).


  15. ANON THE FAKE ONE (unregistered) on January 29th, 2006 @ 6:46 am

    Better than your previous post. I dont have a problem with laughing at myself but the level of humour in the previous set was not on par with my expectations from TM and Karachi Metblog in general. But I guess if most of you had no problem with the previous posts than I need a reality check.


  16. faisal (unregistered) on January 29th, 2006 @ 12:02 pm

    you all might enjoy this.
    it is hilarious….
