APRIL

APRIL FOOL GO TO SCHOOL,
TELL YOUR TEACHER, THAT YOU'RE A BIG FAT FOOL.

There was no political correctness in the 60's. The term "big-fat" never existed then. A spade was called a spade! Those who had front teeth angled outwards (excessive overbite) were called "Coxy"! Timid guys were called "Pusky"! Stingy guys were called "Marwadi Kanjuse!(My apologies to the Marwadi community). Girlish guys were called Pottais!(My apologies to the girls). My elder brother who was rather plump, was called "Fatty Bumbalatti"! Those who carried tales to teachers were called "sneakers"! Our chairman Mr. Enwright was called "Murclick"!Perhaps some of you can add some more derogatory terms that were in use.
