    The last time I tried a donut was when I ordered one from a Dunkin' Donuts counter in Beijing, hoping to appear sloth-like and imperceptible. This was in 1999, and the Dunkin' Donuts was near the epicenter of Chinese police and military actions following the protests following the events in Serbia that spring...

    The last time I visited Dunkin's was in 1984 in Forest Hills (perhaps Austin St). I bought a box of a dozen assorted doughnuts. And the lady at the counter asked me, "To go " ?

    I had never heard that phrase before so was confused and she kept repeating it to me. Finally she elaborated. Did she expect me to have the dozen doughnuts right there ?

    More anecdotal evidence of the SentiSureshs YinYang relationship when a tall thin chap is asked if he shall eat a dozen donuts while at the counter of Dunkin Donuts.

    They say a bakers dozen is 13 and I am reliably informed that a Sureshs dozen is 24.

    sureshs' dozen would be a 92.4% extra profit for the vendors but would be analogous to 92.4% extra girth for sureshs.

    Telly Savalas and Donald Sutherland were both stars in two of my favorite war films, The Dirty Dozen and Kelly's Heroes.

    I suspect the 24 doughnuts have immensely contributed to Poob's "fully-rounded"* game :D

    Cheaper By The Dozen is quite a funny movie by Steve Martin.

    Made a move on Maria Sharapova in an Aston Martin after a Stoli martini, or maybe a dozen;

    Maria didn't find it funny and waved goodbye from her Porsche...

    Mae West apparently like a martini or two...

    "I like one Martini,
    Maybe two at the most,
    Three and I'm under the table,
    Four and I'm under my host!"

    The inventor of the inflatable life preserver vest in the late 1920's designed and marketed his vests for fishing and sailing enthusiasts at local sports shows in the Mid-west. A Navy captain attended one of those shows and saw its potential to save lives in wartime. The rest was history, including its nickname, the Mae West jacket.

    So synonymous that more recent warriors have suggested the device be named the Dolly Parton jacket.:eek:

    Why we have our very own Sureshs, the ultimate buoy (pun for the English English speakers)

    Breathing in my sureshsian vortex can be hindered to the extent a gas mask is necessary for survival.:eek:

    Nostradamus queries why Sureshs has an s at the end of his name to imply that maybe there are 2 or conceivably many more Suresh out there doing their thing. This has interesting possibilities for the multiverse theory though I hope it doesn't water down the Sureshs we have come to know and love.

    Hippopotamus in Greek literally means river horse. Any watering down of sureshs would have to occur in a very large river, perhaps the Poobapotomac.

    Watering down a Czech beer is mean and really problematic says the woman on a horse...

    Elephants are capable of spraying themselves, and each other.

    However, unlike other large creatures, elephants tend to be very mobile, often travelling forty or more miles a day, which certain large immobile creatures would find unimaginable.

    The Hinderburg, based on the German rigid airship of the 1930's, should be able to travel at a rate of 84 mph, about the speed of a certain immobile player's first serve during the Battle By The Border.:eek:

    You are being generous with the speed surely, to the Hindenburg of course ;-)

    But you will agree that both were rigid, the latter not only physically but even with his views and opinions.
