Fact is stranger than fiction indeed...

Kerela has a political party known as the Democratic Indira Congress (Karunakaran) or DIC(K) for short.

I suspect the head of the party is known as the DIC(K) head.

The headline read " DIC(K) prevents UDP from joining local bodies".... !!!! Make of that what you will.

On a related political note, I saw the caption to a photo on the cover of a Bombay newspaper a few days ago that read "Thackarey ponders while his aides confabulate behind him".. was that a subversive reporter or just some schmuck using a big word?

(Confabulate: verb: 1. To chat. 2. To fill in gaps in one's memory with fabrications that one believes to be facts)
