The World's Ugliest Gatepost.




Along with the Dodo bird, Chivalry became extinct………….Common sense went the way of the dinosaur…and good taste, if any at all, is in the domain of the horseshoe crab.

To each his own…a man’s home is his castle….who are we to talk about one’s home…the sanctuary of one’s heart….but for the life of the horseshoe crab,
…. how could anybody sees something so blatantly ugly and not talk about it….only to shake the head in quiet disbelief at something so loudly repulsive.

I can’t…I need to speak up not to spite but to do justice to the conscience of my thoughts ….so integral a part of the journey…..I undertook to share life experiences without fear or favor in the name of humanitarianism with a touch of humor and a pinch of salt to lighten up the daily grind of day to day living.

Here is where the philosophy ends….the fun starts….where the rain stopped and the Sun shines…..So without further ado…I again digress.

I bet you to the last dime in my pocket that the house owner is one of the contractor or the security officer of the Petronas twin Towers….who had so benefited from it to be so unabashedly attached to it that he had a replica of it constructed as a gatepost to remind him of the good times….now that he had retired. It makes absolute good sense to deduce it as correct because who in the world would have done so….NOBODY.

The World owes it to him for not being the contractor or the security personnel of the World’s Ugliest Building…..it would have been UNTHINKABLE.

One more lesson in life manifest……before anyone laments about their misfortune…their lack of beauty…height….that nobody cares a hood…nobody notices
and whatever…….spare a thought for the less fortunate……the children of Africa…..
….and the people of that neighborhood...[.I can’t imagine living near there]….like the saying goes “You can’t choose your parents”.


Spare a thought for the luckless >>>>>>>>
