Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is fed up to the gills with all the fishy happenings around the Commonwealth Games that are due to be held in the Indian Capital New Delhi in a couple of months.
"I thought things were going swimmingly, until television stations began floating a raft of stories about corruption and the Opposition began raising a stink," Singh reportedly told his Minister for Sports Mr Gill, giving him the famous cod stare.
The organising committtee went into a flap when an email from good old Blighty disclosed that Indian cabbies were being hired at 500 times the British rate, and that certain sharks on games committee had bitten off moore blubber than they could chew.
"These disclosures have opened up an entire can of worms," said a rueful Singh, and accused the Opposition parties of fishing in troubled waters.
Sports Minister Gill expressed his concern in these words, "If we don't get the stadia finished on time, the fat will really be in the fire, we've had our chips!"
In the meanwhile, the Indian cabbies union have started wearing eye-patches and singing 'Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.'
