Minions vs ZooZoos

Minions vs ZooZoos

Minions vs ZooZoos (don’t overlook my awesome photoshop skills)

Everybody loves Minions. They are cute, zany and fun. In a different dimension exists a parallel universe inhabited by a species which can rival Minions in sheer cutesy and zaniness; the ZooZoos. It was a regular day at Gru’s underground lab. Doctor Nefario was working on a teleportation device which was still not functional; meaning no idea what would happen if it was used. It was lunch time and during a Minion fight over the last remaining banana, the device gets accidentally triggered, and in a comic sequence of events all the ZooZoos from their multiverse get teleported into Gru’s lab. Following the ZooZoo’s arrival, Minions immediately start treating them as hostiles and pandemonium ensues, which wrecks Gru’s lab. Gru and his kids return home to find out what has transpired; meanwhile the kids start playing and making friends with ZooZoos. Gru offers to send back all the ZooZoos but they refuse to return to their black and white world as they develop a liking for this colorful world and so they decide to stay back. Minions perceive the mere presence of ZooZoos as a threat to their relevance in Gru’s family and so they start protesting against the ZooZoos and the ZooZoos retaliate. A comedy of war ensues and to put an end to this fight, Agnes the youngest daughter of Gru comes up with an idea. She suggests Minions and ZooZoos compete against each other in a series of sporting events aka Olympics; Minions vs ZooZoos. If Minions win ZooZoos have to go back to their multiverse, and if ZooZoos win Minions have to leave Gru’s home. After the stakes decided, what follows is a series of intense battles between the Minions and ZooZoos testing their smarts, friendship, wit, strength, cutesy and craziness. Which team will win the Olympics? What will happen after that? Let us know what you think by posting your thoughts in the comments section.

ps 1) A few days back Redstupid tweeted “A zoozoos vs minions movie would be the perfect anti-thesis to a DC universe vs Marvel universe movie.” As you might have guessed, his tweet was the inspiration behind this story 😀

ps 2) Despicable Me 2 is a fun movie, and Minions are awesome.

The Snake Scare

June 19th

Well it wasn’t any different when today started, and neither was I expecting it to be anything unlike the usual. It started being like any other boring regular Wednesday. Wake up, head to the gym, complete your shoulder workout, follow it up with a yoga session and get ready to get to work (?). As I was walked into the drawing room to pick up my shoes, I saw a thin pipe leaning against the mesh door of the room. On closer look the pipe was moving. Yes genius! you’ve guessed it right. It was a big snake (King Cobra) trying to get inside through the mesh door. Luckily it couldn’t. Lets call him Sam. Having realized what I just saw, I let out a war cry, instantly took out my phone and started clicking pictures. Duh! of course I’m kidding. What actually happened was I let out a loud shrill shriek and ran inside my house shouting “pedda paamu! pedda paamu!” (big snake! big snake!). By the time my dad came out, Sam was no longer there. My survival instincts kicked in, and I immediately locked up the three doors to our home. Just then I hear my dad call me “Sunny! Sam is back. It is big”. Before I could come and see, Sam was crawling away from our gate, and in a couple of minutes it came back in and moved towards the stair case. We had a limited view point through the mesh door as I was unwilling to open the door (my gut told me not to :D), and we lost sight of where Sam went. I immediately looked for snake catchers in the city and made a couple of calls. One of them responded to our S.O.S signal.

In about 15 mins Krishna (snake catcher) arrived. By this time my parents had alerted enough neighbors about Sam and there was a small crowd gathered outside our home. The ambiance turned scary and thanks to our description of Sam ( “pedda paamu! laavu ga vundi” – big snake! it is fat. ) no one dared to come in. We tell the expert where we had last seen Sam. Krishna goes around the house ruffling the plants and bushes in the garden, but does not find Sam. He finally comes to the staircase and notices a spare tyre lying under it. There was Sam, happily resting coiled inside the circumference of the tyre. Krishna drags the tyre outside the house into the open, pulls Sam out holding his tail. He tries sending him inside a pillow cover. All this while Sam was violently hissing at Krishna, now that his slumber party was gatecrashed. The only equipment Krishna needed to control Sam was a walking stick. He tried hard to cajole Sam to go inside the pillow cover, and he vehemently refused. So instead Krishna takes a big plastic can, and this time he manages to send Sam in and seal it. Sam still kept hissing and biting the plastic can though. Later Krishna nonchalantly made some holes in the can so that Sam could breathe. He later insisted that we take some pics, and so we did. Now that Sam was safely secured, all of us in the crowd turned brave.

Honestly speaking I was shit scared when I saw Sam so close. But definitely not as scared as I was on the day when we had to give our B.Tech project presentation to Prof. Jawahar and Prof. Vasu 😉

Here are some pics with Sam, Krishna, pillow cover, plastic can and a few of us from the crowd.

King Cobra in its full glory!

He fucking hates it. He fucking hates it all. Amar is the person who fucking hates it all.
Well, it wasn’t bad before all this started. Maybe bad, but not this bad. Definitely not. Rain haunts him. It is over him when he is out in the open. And it fucking stops when he gets in. It again starts the moment he steps out. Rain haunts him all the time, literally. What the fuck, right ?

All this started back when Amar was not yet haunted by rains, and then one day all the rains followed him or rather hung over his head when there was no ceiling. Now he feels wet all the time. And when he is not wet, he looks weird in his head-to-toe covering rain coat. He then feels stupid and everyone else thinks so.

Now what you are going to know that Amar still doesn’t know; not yet; is that…

A few days ago before all this started, during the 987,712,342,316th poker world cup of all Gods happening over our dimension, an incident happened. Something the Gods are not proud of. Something bad. In the 3rd round of this knockout tournament, Norse God Thunderer, also known as Thor in this and his realm, was very very frustrated seeing that his step brother Loki was cheating in the poker game. In his moment of frustration he swirled his Mjolnir at full strength aiming at Loki’s head. Being the magician he is, Loki disapparated just in time and this big hammer of Thor’s landed on the Indian Rain God’s head. Baaaaammmmm…. A loud noise, louder scream and the Rain god fell off his chair not to rise again. All the rains and clouds over this dimension have been orphaned. In a fit of hasty actions to fix things, the Gods bonded the essence of the Rain God Spirit with Amar’s life force. All the rains and clouds which were deeply in love with the Rain spirit are now in love with Amar as he is the beholder of this mystique essence. So they followed him like the hutch dog every time he was in the open.

Why Amar? for the time being remains a mystery.
Amar who doesn’t know all this was frustrated over the strange events happening around him. At this time, the referral bonus he was expecting to get in this month’s salary was actually due to be credited in the next month’s salary. This just aggravated his frustration and made him be mightily frustrated. Being mightily frustrated he climbed to the last floor of his office building and shouted

fucking fuckity fuckity fuuu……

Just as he was about to utter these words as loud as he could, the clouds seeing him cheered in the form of a mighty thunder dominating his loud shouting and the rains came down in a hurry over him. This made Amar more mightily frustrated and he stared at the clouds, being more mightily frustrated. Seeing Amar angry, the clouds became silent and dark. The rains stopped. Amar, still being more mightily frustrated, took a heavy breath and again shouted

fucking fuckity fuckity fuuu……

…and this time his words echoed through the skies and the Gods were listening…
