"Pakistan is a trail blazer I say."
"In what way? As the only country unable to deal with the polio virus? And after having dealt with dengue to succumb again to..."
"You have to give The Buzz a bit more time to become Wasim Akram Plus. Anyway, winter is here and dengue will soon be on winter leave; but we are the trail blazers in so many, many ways."
"As the only country where each administration claims that it has inherited the worst-ever economy and then proceeding with the same remedies..."
"With the same faces, Hafeez Sheikh has appeared on the scene three times and you know the significance of three times?"
"There is the phrase three's company or conversely, three's a crowd or the third time's the charm, or bad news always comes in threes. In religion too three is important, Noah had three sons. Jonah was inside the belly of the fish three days and nights. Don't forget Julius Caesar's character says he was offered the crown thrice and he refused it thrice..."

"But Sharif and Zardari blame The Khan while Netanyahu is blaming the state of Israel, you know the attorney general decided to indict him; but the US has been a trail blazer as far as First Son In Law is concerned - our Captain (retired) Safdar never quite made the grade."
"Right, even the money for his wife's bail was delivered by someone else while Captain Safdar was waiting..."
"If the Good Captain had been tasked with bringing the money then perhaps the delay would have been more as he had to be given access to some accounts..."
"Don't you be bad!"
