confusing God

Joseph said, “You know, when I was a kid I thought that everyone was born with three wishes. I remember using one of mine to wish that I would never have to go to the bathroom again. It didn’t work, of course. I was mad at God for a long time about that.

To which Coleman said, Ï think you’re confusing God with a genie.”

Old man: Are you Marwari?
Young mom: No
Old man: You have very Marwari features.

Young mom: Ji? I am from Bihar.

Smart guy: These days India is integrated. We cannot tell who is from where…
Everybody smiles.
I am not a part of the conversation, but I smile as well!

Interestingly, people still have a tough time deciding where I am from… be it in India or abroad.
