Students learn new meaning for ‘rubber’

Students in Uttar Pradesh found a new hiding place for their crib sheets (via India Uncut, appropriately enough). I wish they wouldn’t air their dirty laundry:

Invigilators at Jai Narain Degree College were baffled to find eight condoms hidden inside the underpants of a boy taking [an] examination…. Inside the condoms, chits with short answers, tips and formulae were neatly packed. When caught, one of the boys quipped, “It is a ‘condomed’ way to cheat”… The invigilators were not prepared to touch the condoms. So the college sweeper was summoned. He put the condoms in a file as proof for further action…. Another student was found hiding chits in a bandage on his leg.

Silly rabbit, prophylactics aren’t for filing. And I find this story hard to digest:

At Eram College, a girl was found hiding her chits in what the invigilators called “an unmentionable place”. When the chits were recovered, she swallowed them.

When the chits were down…

  1. I think Manish wants to be an actual newspaper journalist. That’s the only explanation for that groan-inducing pile of puns. :-)

  2. I think I cracked a rib laughing when I first heard someone say, “Pass me that rubber, no, yaar.” And then the film American Desi had to come along and open up that old wound.

    No mind … Indian students will find other ways to score (points, I mean).

  3. I just took the puns to mean that Manish is fast approaching/settling into “unclehood.” ;)

    -D

  4. the big question, of course, is what was someone doing looking around in the girl’s “unmentionable place” in the first place?

    What’s so weird about having 8 condoms in your pants? Are these guys trying to imply that’s not normal…or have I just said way too much?

    Also, is this college located in The Village? Is that why they say things like “the unmentionable place?” Did she give the chits to those we don’t speak of?

  6. “Unmentionable” apparently doesn’t mean “untouchable.”

    Being an invigilator is suddenly a lot more fun than I remember it being.
