Sometimes the only way to deal with a really serious situation is to make it funny. So, here is our little experiment to see what words you would put into the "leaders" mouth (please, no batameezi!).

"Pakistaniat
So, basically, here is the storyline we all know so well. What we do not know is what these guys have been actually thinking and saying.



So, lets try to imagine what that might be. Help us write the dialogue to this comic strip – either the whole story or parts of it. Essentially, there are six dialogues/thoughts to fill in: two by Asif Ali Zardari (AAZ #1; AAZ #2), three by Nawaz Sharif (NS #1, NS #2, NS #3) and one by Gen. Pervez Musharraf (PM #1).

Maybe, if we get good responses we will plug the best lines into the call-outs and put up a final strip!

Google’s NFC Phone May Allow Payments.(Brief article)

American Banker December 8, 2010 | Wolfe, Daniel Byline: Daniel Wolfe A mobile phone running Google Inc.’s Android software has the hardware groundwork for mobile payments.

On Monday, Google announced the Nexus S, a phone built by SamsungElectronicsLtd. that has a built-in near-field communication chip.

Eric Schmidt, Google’s chairman and chief executive officer, had earlier disclosed that an upcoming version of its Android software would support this technology, which many in the financial services space envision as an essential component of turning mobile phones into payment devices. “The theory, or the case, is that you’ll be able to … eventually replace, literally, credit cards” with an NFC phone, Schmidt said at a conference in November. website nexus s review

It is unclear as to whether the Nexus S will immediately be able to make payments. In Schmidt’s demonstration of NFC, and in a description of the technology on Google’s website, the chip was shown to be able to read information wirelessly from posters. nexussreviewnow.net nexus s review

Simon Wilson, an engineer with Google, said in a video on Google’s website that the NFC technology in the Nexus S is read-only.

“Currently, your Nexus S can only read information from other objects,” Wilson said. “Information from your Nexus S cannot be read by other devices or objects.” Wilson also stressed that the NFC chip can be turned off entirely.

Wolfe, Daniel

    I agree the expressions on the 2nd pic are priceless and tell all the story without any words.

    @ “Humourism”

    Humour on Pak Media and showbis is “miserable “.
    they should abandon this faculty to individuals.

    Sanjidah mizah or Tafannun is very healthy attitude,
    very much advised to nations going thru crises beyond
    imagination, like our Great Pakistani Nation. In solidarity,
    I have decided to reduce my food consumption to only one
    meal a day, and spend the rest in Pakistan. I pray to
    Al-Mighty Allah SWT to grant me more ability to defend
    and support my country in these bad times.

    Regardless of what Nawaz Sharif did and how I made fun of him, In retrospect, Nawaz is standing for a good and moral cause. Restoring Judges and Independence of Judiciary is vital to constitutionalism.

    I guess some people are just having a bad day and lost their sense of humour.

    Please don’t take them seriously and continue with the excellent work you have been doing.

    Like the selection of pictures there and the expressions in them.

    Even without any words, the tell the whole story.

    The second picture with Nawaz Sharif trying to make a point and Zardari looking as if he doe snot care is priceless.

    My suggestion for this one is that Nawaz Sharif is saying: “Yaar, koee khuda ka khouf karro, mairay chootay chootay arman hain”
