Sometimes, we say things for fun, or for a laugh. It all seems like a joke, but when you go home, and sit down to analyse it, it all seems so true. Here are two recent examples:
For my project, I have a supervisor and a design consultant. Supervisor makes sure that wedo our work and that the project is running smoothly. Design consultant is a guy who the school hired to help all project students with their projects.
My design consultant is an old man, a professor in his 60's. He looks (and dresses) like a typical old British man. He even wears those pieces of elastic that goes over his shirt to keep his pants up. I believe they are called suspenders? My group mates call him Father Jack. Although I seem to keep calling him Farmer John. Don't really know why. Anyway, we had our first meeting with him just the other day.
Farmer John : So, tell me, what is your main objective of this project?
DinoDude : Erm, to build a machine that cracks palm nuts.

Farmer John : Nonsense.
Vincent : *about to speak*
Farmer John : Correct me if I am wrong, but your main objective for this project is to get a damn bloody high mark so that you all can graduate with a first class honours.
DinoDude, AquaGirl, SnoopyGirl and Vincent nod in agreement.
In the dining room in the hostel just now, I was sitting with a NigerianGuy(NG) and a TaiwaneseGuy (TG). Both of them are classmates, and my juniors. Some girls walk past :
NG : Yauza!!
Vincent : Are you fucking me? That's a feast for you?
TG : *eat eat eat*
NG : Hey TG, you like what you see?
TG : See what?
NG : You interested in any of them? Or any girl here?
TG : What for??
