Thursday is now Samedi

In a shocking violation of human rights, Samrat Sengupta pitilessly interrogated the members of the BQC on October 21, 2007. The UN condemned the incident and deputed a resentful Thor to head the peacekeeping taskforce once the UN Security Council and the Norse Gods stop squabbling and get Ragnarok over with. The UN Human Rights Committee expressed "grave concern" over questions linking a torch, a dynamo, red-bearded king and a marine mammal. "He just kept smiling", a survivor said through pain-bleared eyes. "He kept smiling, but he didn't stop, he just didn't stop. He even threatened us with a History of the American People. All five volumes of it!"
Amit Varma, a well- known user of candlesticks and quiz survivor, recalls, "Sumant, the BQC....treasurer succumbed quickly and told on his comrades, cheerfully betraying them and leading throughout the quiz."
Other eyewitness accounts speak of S. Balakrishnan. "Bala just took everything Samrat had to offer and then some", said Prasann Potdar, "He skillfully avoided the traps set for him by Sengupta."

The incident provoked an immediate response from administrations across the globe, with Gordon Brown, High Chancellor of Britain, countering rumours that the state-sponsored NHS had anything to do with the state of Samrat's teeth. "We firmly condemn all such instances of unauthorized human rights violations. There is also absolutely no substance to the rumour that the NHS actually works and was responsible in any way for Samrat Sengupta's teeth."

The list of survivors is published below.
