My goof-ups

This happened some 15 years back. My kids (they were kids, then!) and my husband used to discuss about the Olympic medals' tally (Olympics time).

After they left to school and office, I opened the sports page and saw the medals' tally:

           G    S    B    T
Russia 20 12 9 41
Germany 15 10 10 35
China 14 12 11 37
India 0 0 0 2


My comment about it in the evening: Everyone got lots of TIN medals! (yellaarum naraiya TIN medal vaangiyirukka!)

Have a good laugh at my cost!

P.S.: this joke has gone the world over through my kids and their friends want more!
