Hey guys... did you notice Choppy's back in office.
He was involved in some sort of a fight near his home in Saligao, where he received a whack and broke a few bones about his body.
Hey don't misunderstand us, broken bones wasn't a reason for Choppy alias Francis Ribiero's (also Herald's sports editor) absence in office. Choppy really doesn't need a reason to be bunking work at Herald. He's the one guy who just disappears from work for months on end and it just doesn't irk anyone.
Anyway, Chops is on crutches and is dropped to and from work by the new sub from the sports section Aurio, who we guess also lives nearabouts Saligao. This deal works out fine. Except on Aurio's off day, which also turns out to be Choppy's off day too.

I dunno why you guys have an absession exclusively for Herald. How about non english media?

But here is something I noticed on your beloved, cherished, love-to-hate, adrorable, probable-employer* Herald. You see the story on pg. 4 "Curtorim MLA...SEZ..." is actually a repeat of yesterday's pg. 3 article.

(* Employer of that 33 yr old prick who studied in Dempos. Info obtained from your post on VR Naik)

The disgruntled guys should leave that 'office'.

What ever happened to Joseph Zuzarte? Just made a noise and nothing! Agnelo Perreira is scarce. Vaman writes columns. Ok so Mann is sitting pretty in Philippines. Free to return. Rajan a possible C I A agent. Arun licenced to play. The guy in league with the NT chappie grabs obits.
Gallons of tea & coffee has flowed thru' Café Prakash.

The following is what really matters...

Did you participate in the journo protest at the Azad Maidan, few days back?

Forgot to mention in earlier comment, in para 2.

Derek's voice continues to drift in the shady alley. No echo from the Sakal. Typical

Hey Pricks
Choppy is no BIG gun that you should write to him. At best he is a "bad" journalist, a "worse" sub and a "lousy" sports editor. He thinks of himself as a saint, but his baggage stinks and is solid. He is known to be a free bee - loves free food, alcohol and rides from his trainee subs. He had even tricked Savio from Saligoa & Herald to give him a lift earlier. Poor Savio learned him faster than he learned how a sub a paragraph.
Choppy was very jealous of Derick and Julio who he called Margao boys. Choppy is the most divisive character in journalism (as he has always been. I can cite numerous cases of how Choppy has played politics to throw people out from Hearld. they include Norman Dantas, Rajan Narayan, Derek, Julio, and Gustav Fernandes. When he had to be thrown out of Herald he licked Rahul and ensured his survival. Choppy is a leach and lives off others.
I think Pen Pricks has done a great disservice by featuring him. (Choppy) Francis Ribiero needs to be ignored, loathed and rejected.

Giving help to the needy, sick & old is a good thing.

Bunking out of sheer laziness is terrible.

Could it be that Choppy's fatigue is caused by diabetes?

BTW does anyone know how he got that name?

All of us including journos live in the same environment.

As I write, it's raining!! I wonder what impact this will have on farmers and more importantly tourism.

Hi Pricks(specially for the two from the Herald)

Why do you guys look at the speck of dirt in your neighbours eye when you guys have a log in your own eye.

Lies, deceit, accusations, falsehood reigns supreme in blog now used to settle old rivalries, character assasinate individuals and try to 'create' stories about Herald staffers, so that the reader enjoys some spicy gossip. wont be surprised whether penpricks will survive the test of time.

Hey "MBA Prick" from Herald
Use your Brains for constructive purpose not destructive. You want everyone in Herald to dance to your whims and fancies, cmon spare Choppy after all the shit he has done for you. He has an edge over you in being cunning, shrewd or playing games, he can Checkmate you anytime.

Choppy can survive any storm in Herald.

As far is punctuality is concerned. He is regularly irregulary even if he is medically fit or physically unfit.

why dont all the guys who love to hate choppy, just go and fly some kites from your backyards.
or better still, have a few pegs of VAT 69 and go to sleep with chopy's picture under the pillow.
i have never seen such venom being spewed and spilled over one man.
is there any journalist who at one point of time not done a single crime of ommission or commission in his journalistic life.
the comments about choppy reflect the state of your own minds.
oh yeah, u can brand me as pro-chopy. does not matter. ur loathing for choppy has reavealed ur filthy state of mind.
