I believe you're looking for a little story we like to call "When 'Luv' Became 'Gov': The Incredibly, Truly Embarassing Situation Where Hugh Grant's Hooker Turned Out To Be A Guy And How It Didn't Damage His Career, Except You Can Get The Mugshot Of Him Everywhere You Look (or 'Dude Looks Like A Lady and Hugh Is Looking Blue')"

You clearly have some experience with the whole mail-order companion. Would you like to share?

This probably would sound better accompanied by a "wah-wah" pedal, which is used to embellish electric guitar/organ music and make a cheezy, warbly sound.

Or, maybe this is a frustrated, drunk Philadelphia-area citizen looking for his local Wawa convenience store for coffee and cigarettes.

Possible translation: Hi Gargu, there's some sherry for you if you take my yaya to wawa. ...my life, boy, have java, trusty wawa, wa (passes out)

Boredom has set in, so I decided ot take this one on. Turns out "shayari" is a kind of Indian poetry--written in Urdu or Hindi There are love poems, serious poems, and humorous poems. Sometimes they include English. This is apparently a real knee-slapper; I found it in several collectons:

quote:
Husband... Husband... Husband...
Aisa apna husband ho
6' - 6'2" jiski height ho
Jeans dheeli magar body tight ho
apni baaton se karta excite ho
Wo dashing smart aur polite ho
Husband apna aisa bright ho.
Uski apni ek website ho
Network uska world-wide ho
Swiss bank mein account 26 - 27 ho
Meri har pasand uski favourite ho
Apne friends ke saamne kahe, tum perfect bride ho
Husband apna aisa bright ho

snopes' correspondent seems to have picked up a corrupted version (or, for all I know a version in a different dialect). As every schoolboy knows, it really goes
quote:
mein hu yahan,tu hai wahan,
lifebuoy hai jahan,thandoorusti hai wahan

Poor guy. "KSA" is the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia which does censor internet access. He needs a workaround so he can log on to porn sites. Or maybe KSA is blocking the snopes "Little Mermaid" analysis.

One of my Indian co-workers has informed me that this is an ad for soap. It basically means:

I am here and there
I am here and there
Wherever there is Lifebuoy
Healthyness is there!

The first two lines are just an intro to the song (shayari means "slogan" or "song").
