We’re back 🙂


“Starting next week, we’ll entertain you with our usual antics.”

“Confuse you with our out-of-this-world wisdom.”

“Exasperate you with our nonsense.”

“And even give away a laugh or two.”

“Give away a laugh or two, Brother Grinn? You’re giving us away?”

    1. “Ms Indira misses the twins, Brother Grinn.”
      “Who are these ‘twins’ Brother Grinn?”
      “Brother Grinn and Brother Grinn, Brother Grinn.”
      “Now I know what it feels like to live in a narrow valley, Brother Grinn.”

    1. “Actually, Mr Ian, we Brothers Grinn don’t like all these movie stuff.”
      “Yes, it makes us look yellow, bald and squint eyed.”
      “We prefer to stay anonimi -”
      “Animoni -”
      “Anomini -”
      “We prefer to stay behind the scenes, Brother Grinn?”
      “Whew! Yup, behind the scenes, Brother Grinn.”
      “That way, our readers can imagine us to be whatever they prefer.”
      “I prefer good looking, Brother Grinn.”
      “Dream on, Brother Grinn.”

      “Okay, boys, I heard you.”

      “Was that?”
      Yup! That was him with his fingers on the keyboard.”

      1. “You’re right, Mr Ian.”
        “I don’t think Eric’s the type who fings people, Brother Grinn.”
        “True, Brother Grinn, Mr Straight Jacket does no such think.”
        “But he sure uses that Delete button alot.”
        “I don’t see any Delete button on his key board, Brother Grinn.”
        “See that blank one, Brother Grinn.”
        “Ah! I get it, Brother Grinn.”
        “Yup! Mr Wannabe 18th Century gentleman, uses it so often that the lettering has worn off.”

      2. “Wow! Mr Ian vexed poetic and I love it, Brother Grinn.”
        “So do I, Brother Grinn – and why do you keep referring to him as ‘mister’ Ian.”
        “I know, I know Brother Grinn. It should either be ‘sir’ or ‘Mr Grice’.”
        “So, why, Brother Grinn, I beg of you.”
        “Beg of me, beg of me, did you say, Brother Grinn?”
        “I drank the tea made for Eric.”
        “Okay, well, I say ‘Mr Ian’ to keep in character, Brother Grinn.”
        “Yup! I understand now. We’re supposed to be a pair of dumb non-native English speakers.”
        “Yup! We’re a pair and I agree you’re the dumb-half.”
        WHO DRANK MY TEA?”
        “Make that two yikes!”
        “Yikes! Yikes!”
        “Into the shadows we move, discrete.”
        “Lest our career comes to an end with a mere delete.”
        “What a royal balls up, the stage now complete.”
        “We better remove that pin we left on his seat.”
        “All our fun planned for today, now deplete.”

  1. Ah, and I thought one Brother Grinn only feels his mind with down there, to keep his maiden grinning, ha, ha.

    1. “Maiden, did Ms Jasey say, ‘maiden’ Brother Grinn.”
      “Yup! Maiden, like in, one maiden, Brother Grinn.”
      “I’ll starve!”
      “You like to spread your oats, don’t you, Brother Grinn.”
      “You don’t get it, Brother Grinn, but I’ll starve.”
      “Oh, I get it. The way to a man’s heart is by his stomach.”
      “You’re right, Brother Grinn. All of them feed me but with one maiden, I get only one meal.”
