The womans name is *Dikshit*?

12 posts in this topic

OK, this is totally politically incorrect and in fear of being flamed by Indian members - u gotta laugh.

Paul Henry, host of New Zealand's most popular breakfast tv show - Breakfast, has a bad habit of overstepping the line on tv.

He did it again, when pronouncing the name of Delhi's chief minister Sheila Dikshit.

NZ breakfast tv

This is a must watch.

Paul has been notorious with other such youtubable moments as commenting on the mostache on a lady he interviewed , and talking about how rats urinate on their hands to clean their faces.

I caught that woman's name loooooooong ago.

But it's actually worse. I read somewhere that it was originally dipsheet but it got changed to dikshit instead!! :lol:

In any case, in many chat rooms, her name I guess comes up diksh*T?? :lol::lol:

Well,I admit having a few sniggers myself when I first heard the name and especially in the context of the CWG fiasco.I thought 'You just couldn't make something like that up" and I guessed sooner or later some comedian (is he a comedian?) would go to town on it. :P

It seems that the Indian media must have cottoned on because I note it is now being spelt and pronounced 'Dixit' which apparently is the proper way or so we're now being told!

But I guess it'll take more than a change of name to fix the problems in the Athletes' Village!

Paul is just a journalist, quite controversial and funny though - prone to having *moments* on air. His acceptance speech at the NZ Television awards was a classic.

Check these out.

Rats wash their faces with their own Urine

That is a lady with a Moustache

As for Miss Dikshit. I think having her first name as Sheila just makes it even better.

In saying that, the lady really does need a fair bit of kudos after moving Delhi into action with the athletes village.

;) Oh Scotguy! you totally spoiled it with pictures like that! 2014 is sooooooooooooooooo far awaaaaaaaaay!

:angry: Anyways PAUL HENERY has be suspended for two weeks off air without pay after he finally blew it! He race based slandered the Governer General while interviewing the Prime Minister when disscussing the GG's replacement. The look on John Key's face is totally priceless.

It also looks like an inquiry into his behaviour is about to begin...Wouldn't be surprised if he gets a full discplinary interview followed by dismissal.

:) Just sort of close this thread...Paul Henry tendered his resignation this afternoon to TVNZ boss Rik Ellis. It has been accepted.

Citing the damage to the company and NZ to be to great to show his face on TV again.

:angry: Sometimes you just got to know when to zip it!! :angry:

I thought the joke on Mock the Week last week was quite good.

"And, did you hear, they've got someone working for them called Sheila Dikshit....How funny is that? An Indian called Sheila"

And some more comedic takes on Delhi 2010:
