Thousands Change Name to “Rajapaksa”!
By our correspondent Iqbal Athas Rajapaksa
Today there was total confusion in Sri Rajapaksistan (formerly Sri Lanka) when thousands and thousands of people changed their name to Rajapaksa to get appointed as a Member of Parliament or even to get a job.
“Aiyo! It is total confusion,” said a man called Rajapaksa, “Everyone is changing their name to Rajapaksa! This is mad! The telephone directory is now full of Rajapaksas. Even Abdul Gafoor of the Thambi Kade now goes by the name of Abdul Gafoor Rajapaksa and the Thosai Kade is run by Nagalingam Rajapaksa!”
Hospitals authorities were reporting that all newborn babies are being named Rajapaksa by their parents (also called Rajapaksa) and several babies have now got mixed up. Dr. Rajapaksa of the De Soyza Maternity Hospital said “Of the deliveries this morning all except one baby were named Rajapaksa. One was named Askapajar, which I believe is Rajapaksa spelt backwards. Even at this moment, Midwife Rajapaksa is delivering a baby already named Rajapaksa by its parents!”
Even the Police and the courts are having trouble with most victims and offenders having the name of Rajapaksa said Police Inspector Rajapaksa of the Pettah Police. A High Court trial (State v Rajapaksa, Rajapaksa and Rajapaksa) came to a standstill today when the victim, the suspects, the Advocates and even the Judge were called Rajapaksa. Even most of the jurors were called Rajapakse. Emerging reports indicate that the Mahanayaka Theros and the Bishops and Archbishop have changed their name to Rajapaksa. Even Pope Rajapaksa....
