The News Minute| January 6, 2015| 11.00 pm IST What happens when Twitter meets dark humour, Indian style? We get a funny, albeit depressing Twitter handle in the form of Gareeb Aadmi.But let us warn you, when the bio reads, ‘Bhookh Lagi Hai’, you know you are in for something that might be offensive, but hilariously funny too. For starters, the display image is that of a stricken looking Nawazuddin Siddiqui. @GareebGuy is becoming quite popular on Twitter, raking up followers and retweets at an alarmingly fast rate. Tweeting from the point of view of a very poor Indian man, Gareeb Aadmi’s tweets aren’t politically correct at all. They are so dark, that you might just take a moment or two to check whether it is OK to laugh at them, lest you might be accused of making fun of the poor and their poverty woes. Here are some sample tweets: Some as dark as it gets Jitni Chaadar ho utne he paer failaane chahiye. Isliye maine paer kaat diye. — Gareeb Aadmi (@GareebGuy) January 5, 2015 Biscuit khane ka man kar raha hai, chalo blood donate kar aate hain — Gareeb Aadmi (@GareebGuy) January 5, 2015 Kaash aas paas deewarein hoti. — Gareeb Aadmi (@GareebGuy) January 4, 2015 I can't enjoy a family movie. 16 of us can't fit in a room. — Gareeb Aadmi (@GareebGuy) January 4, 2015 Some laced with tricky humour Ji Sahab.
