    The name of this New Zealand cricketer always makes me chuckle.

    Haha that's so good. I love how it also says:

    "Also known as: I.L.Talebulamainavaleniveivakabulaimainakulalakeba lau", as though the first names are the ones that need abbreviation. Cricinfo obv taking the piss there.

    haha.....yeah, never noticed R Pissing
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Is someone taking the Piss?

    Just searched Cricinfo and no Pissing at all.

    I believe there was a meeting of the England side with some dignitary in India, where the latter was very pleased to make the acquaintance of "Mr Iron Bottom"

    Tony Grieg once said that he wished he had a name like Nuwan Kulesakara. I had to agree.
