    Hi LG,

    Hmm…understood the Inside joke:-) But I think once he cleared in his FAQ of tamil magazine that its a fake joke that has no end. Am I right?

    I ve never read Sujatha. But, guess it should be some joke which his characters keep referring to; which reminds me of the dhraatchai pazham joke in Indian. Does that have a similar history too?

    Zero, As narasi said, he revealed the idea behind the joke a couple of years back. basically there is nothing as mexico salavaikaari joke.

    vasanth, a playboyish character keeps uttering about this salavaikaari joke but never tells what the joke is. infact, i’ve been waiting for decades to know about this joke. though half the way through i was determined that there is no end to this, i was positive that sujatha would make something at the end. but my hopes were in vain. and it was unique of him to sustain a suspense for such a lomg time during his writing career.

    and yeah i think the thraatchai pazham joke took birth from this one, given sujatha being the dialogue writer for indian.

    Google knows the number of ways I have tortured it find out what the joke was.

    Once my German Prof. cracked a joke that could fit neatly within the name of this joke. And it was R-rated enough to qualify as a Vasanth joke. But too vulgar for Sujatha to refer at all.

    So, everytime I met someone with a thing for Vasanth-style jokes I had the following conversation.

    Me: Hey do u know the one about the Mexican Laundress ?
    He: um…
    Me: neither do I hahahaha (and slip away before getting lynched)

    Didn’t know it was an inside joke, naive me 😦

    Well, this is in similar vein to a number of jokes – where one can improvise at will – to suit the audience and ambience. For example,

    ” Have you heard about what they say about men with Big Feet…”


    ” U know…” (to be interpreted in any way one deems fit)
