Short man at it again

The small teacher is at it again. He who once ruled the roost at the Citadel was chased away by the fast bowler, but now he is running behind the hospital man who is tipped to take over the cart in the aftermath. It is learned that the hospital man has given the short man a job to attend. The short man has been entrusted with the job of pilfering documents with regard to the journeyman’s travels.

Who robbed the four million?
The wood cutter who was put in charge with the field where the flowers bloom, had made a hasty get away with a four million packet that was given by the Citadel to grow more flowers. The wood cutter claims that it is the loot that he spent on the field with his meagre earnings at the new world.

Thrice honoured
Recently a grand prize giving took place at a leading educational body where the shuttling types were honoured. But the icing on the cake was when the wife of the secretary of the institution was honoured, not once but thrice! Now the question is why is that this particular lady was honoured so graciously?
‘Slant eyes’ and contracts

It is a well known fact that the contract to construct the stadiums for the fast approaching World Cup has been handed over to the slant-eyed types. This has resulted in the local types being ignored. Now the local types have started approaching the slant-eyed ones in order to curry favour with them and obtain some of the spoils. News has leaked out to the Big Man about this and he is supposed to be livid with the things that the local types are doing.

Ticket racket
All eyes are on the fast approaching World Cup. News is that a large number of tickets that are highly priced have been printed without the knowledge of those involved in the project. It is said that the sporting type is turning a blind eye to this set up because some of his close buddies are involved in this racket. Now those in the know have approached the Biggest Man to apprise him of the situation and to control this racket if possible.

Paving the way
A former air-force type is heartbroken that his efforts for the World Cup are not appreciated. Recently one of the big men in the scene had berated him for no reason whatsoever and he had been so dejected that he had decided to spend some time Down Under to get away from all this stress. It is said that plans are afoot that after the World Cup is over a close relative of the big man concerned is set to take over this position. It looks as if some one is making way so that this guy can take over once the big show is over.

Hard headed
At the same shuttling ‘do’ mentioned earlier the institution concerned had decided to honour the present President and the former President of the shuttling business. However the present boss was adamant that he will not take the prize if the former boss is honoured. As it was the former boss got his award while the present boss walked away empty handed because of his hard headedness!

Battle lines are drawn
Netball is a sport that has brought honour to the country on so many occasions. Now it looks as if the battle lines are drawn because the National Coach is to be appointed very soon and one such type is coming from Lion City while the other on is from Sri Lanka. One set who are supporting the Lion City Lady says to members of the other camp that if their candidate is selected the other lot will have to end up washing cups and saucers. All this hullabaloo has divided the set of players and it looks as if the situation does not improve, it will be the sport that will suffer.
