last men standing

On the occasion of the reaping of the last crop of ripened bacheolors among us:

"Hearken, hearken, all ye folks!

And so fell the mightiest and the bravest of them all. The last few knelt at the anvil for the hammer to fall, as their merciless fate eagerly awaited them. Lord Pasha, Sir Shonee, KD Knight and Duke Dhaka, one after the other, each one of them succumbed to the lure of the deadly tribe of sirens, never to walk this middle earth as free men again. The stories of their adventurous exploits, their fiery bravado, their gigantic mirths and their careless abandon have since turned into fodder for legends, destined to be forgotten sooner than later.

The last stand of this glorious race is still whispered with reverence among those who tread this mortal earth. Some even proclaim that there are but a few survivors of this fearsome tribe of gleeful warriors, lying hidden amidst the fogs of time in faraway lands, most notable among them, Tulu the Nimble, Jinnoo theGargantuan and Dada the Noble. Should you choose to believe this mythical lore, only Chronos the terrible may prophesise, for how long they shall walk among us; unattached, unenamoured, lonesome and happy.

Do guys really feel trapped by marriage? Or am I in such a bad mood that I'm missing the point? Lately I feel like I'm not really taking anything the right way.

"A mortal who keeps one of the great rings does not die. But he does not grow or obtain more life, he merely continues, untill atlast every minute is a weariness. And if he uses the ring to make himself invisible, he fades: he becomes in the invisible permanently, and walks the twilight under the eye of the dark power that Rules the Rings. Yes, sooner or later - later, if he is strong and well-meaning to begin with, but neither strength nor good purpose will last - sooner or later the dark power will devour him." - Gandalf the wise

Jade: Nah Jade, not all of them, and not all of the time anyway. It's just a take-off on a cliche a-la JRR Tolkien. No need to get cynical there. As Mark Knopfler croaks, "I like the chicks, don't get me wrong, hey, that's why I wrote this song"

Bhavv: Thanx fo reminding us O mighty Gandalf the Grey. Er... or is it Gandalf the White now?

Elf: But of course, then there is Garfield. Only they sacked him on account of extreme obesity, rendering him unfit for most knightly tasks and such.
