Wife #1: Caption this!

Published

After the phenomenal internet success of the “a wife is a wife” photo-post, I couldn’t resist snapping some photos on the highway as I caught sight of a Hummer with an intriguing number-plate, which read “Wife 1”.  That was several months ago and I never got around posting it.

But today I saw the Hummer again, on the same highway, around the same time of the morning, cutting right in front of me. Was there a subliminal message here, I wondered?? So I snatched my blackberry out, and started snapping again, this time getting a clearer angle.  Mind you, this Hummer was humming!  Like at 80-85 mph. So, I had to really push my energy-efficient Prius (not very energy efficient on a highway chase as you can imagine) in order to get close enough to get a reasonable photograph using the little cell-phone camera.  In some sense, I put my safety at risk just to get this photo to our readers :)

My caption: “The other number-plate, WIFE 2, is on a Corolla”

    And though at 90, you whizz past me…
    I could not care less, you see…

    it’s the husband’s trick to let her wife feel proud and continuously love him because she’ll always be happy on way back to home.. everyone would love to see the driver of such a car with a (fake) smiling face :p

    Okay mofw takes the cake. This just reminded me of a Tahoe (or some sort of SUV) with a sign that was something along the lines:
    “No money. No life.
    He’s married.”

    you think your wife is huge…

    or

    you think your wife consumes a lot…

    or

    you think your wife craves attention…

    Something’s odd. I saw a Hummer today too, in PAKISTAN of all places… and of all times now! And guess what? It had a custom number plate too… a Roman numeral “VII”. Let’s hope it’s not owned by the same person as the one above! =D

    I took a picture too, if anyone wants proof. :)

    Beat this! All from public transportation in Karachi, Pakistan (from an actual survey we did in our teenage)

    Gizri bari door hai, jana bhi zaroor hai,
    Di agar awarah hai to mera kia qasoor hai?

    Janay walay, teray tairoon kay nishan baqi hain

    Yeh jan ho na jai kaheen hadisay ki nazr
    Gari mein bathiyay na kabhi sar nikal kay

    and the cake goes to:
    Jawani dar haqeeqat khud hi ik ilzam hoti hai
    Nazar kitni hi achi ho magar badnam hoti hai

    All with apologies to non-Urdu readers; poetry is not translatable, specially if it comes off a truck.
