  1. Unrelated but what the hell:
    kum·quat also cum·quat (kmkwt)
    [Chinese (Cantonese) kamkwat, equivalent to Chinese (Mandarin) xn, gold + Chinese (Mandarin) jú, orange, tangerine.]
    n 1: any of several trees or shrubs of the genus Fortunella bearing small orange-colored edible fruits with thick sweet-flavored skin and sour pulp [syn: cumquat, kumquat tree] 2: small oval citrus fruit with thin sweet rind and very acid pulp

    I still want to be a kumquat.

  3. Time to bring out the band.

    …Come to Bombay, come to Bombay, bombay meri hai

    ae dil, mushkil hai jeena yahaan, zara hatke zara bachke, yeh hai Bombay meri jaan…

    …ee hai Bambai nagariya tu dekh babuwa

    Yeh Bambai shahar hadson ka shahar hai…

    Bombay se aaya mera dost, dost ko salaam karo.

    Raat ko barah baje din nikalti hai, subah ko chheh baje raat hoti hai… ye hai aamchi Mumbai

    …kasa kai, bara hai, I am Mumbhai

    pick one.
