Mini-Pattabi rocks !!

This is the story of a tamil family and the glory that their son bought to the tamil community ... Husband, Pattabi was working for an IT company as programmer and wife,ambujam was the admin incharge at an MNC. After 7-8 years of hard work, Pattabi got promoted and was transferred to the US( bay area ,of course). After several years of wedlock Mini Pattabi was born.

Mini Pattabi grew fast and was exceptionally intelligent for a kid his age. On his first day in grade four ..

Mini pattabi's teacher said, "Let's begin by reviewing some American history:--Who said 'Give me Liberty, or giveme Death?'"

She saw a sea of blank faces, except for Mini-pattabi, who had his hand up. "Patrick Henry, 1775."

She said.” Very good! Who said 'Government of the People, by the People, for the People, shall not perish from the Earth'"?

-Again, no response except from Mini Pattabi. "Abraham Lincoln, 1863.", said Mini Pattabi.

The teacher snapped at the class, "Class, you should be ashamed. Mini Pattabi, who is new to our country, knows more about its history than you do.

This riled the class a bit.

At that point, a student in the back said, "I'm gonna puke".

The teacher glares and asks "All right! Now, who said that?"

Again,Mini Pattabi says, "George Bush [Sr.] to the Japanese Prime Minister, 1991."

Now furious, another student yells, "Oh yeah? S**k this!"

Mini Pattabi jumps out of his chair, excitedly waving his hand and shouts to the teacher, "Bill Clinton, to Monica Lewinsky, 1997!"

Now with almost a mob hysteria someone said, "You little s**t. If you say anything else, I'll kill you."

---Mini Pattabi frantically yells at the top of his voice,"[California Congressman] Gary Condit to intern Chandra Levy 2001."(The teacher fainted.)

And as the class gathered around the teacher on the floor, someone said, "Oh shit, we're f**ked!" ---and Mini Pattabi said, "Americans,... in Iraq,2004!"

PS :This is obviously a very popular joke and several versions can be found on the net. No offense to Mini pattabi and family.. Am sure they are a hardworking family and wont mind me trumpeting their son's exploits..I hope the joke was half as funny as i thought it to be ;-)
