Congress leader Shashi Tharoor, known for firing incomprehensible words like salvos, yet again finds mention in an amusing video, this time by a comic from the neighbouring country.
His "exasperated farrago" of unfathomable words and to-the-point accent is so noteworthy across the border that a Pakistani comedian recently made an uproarious video where he talks about ways one can speak English like Tharoor and ace it.
The video is such a riot that it even left the Thiruvananthapuram MP impressed. Akbar Chaudry, a Pakistani comic, shared the video with the caption, "How to speak English like @ShashiTharoor #ShashiTharoor #Defenestrate #Farrago #Floccinaucinihilipilification (sic)."
The comedian demonstrates how to speak English with Tharoorian perfection in three steps. The video begins with Akbar tossing a copy of the Oxford Dictionary into a juicer and then drinking the smoothie.
Illustrating step two, the comic sits on a sofa with two drips attached to his arms - one connected to a laptop playing Tharoor's video and another to a saline bottle labelled Oxford Dictionary.
The third and last step exhibits Akbar throwing the dictionary into a pestle and mortar to pulverising it into a mixture and then snorting the powder.
As soon as he finishes with all three steps, the scene shifts and the comic starts spouting platitudes like Tharoor, and lip-syncing to the politician's viral speeches.

Shashi Tharoor reacts
The Congress leader and Thiruvananthapuram MP, like others, chuckled at the video, retweeting it with a post. Tharoor also had a special request. "Next one on @ImranKhanPTI please!?> @AkbarChaudry (sic)," he tweeted.
Here's the tweet:
The clip has garnered over 7.5K likes and 1.3k retweets, leaving the internet ROFLing. This is not the first time that Tharoor has become the butt of netizens' jokes, a lot of funny tutorials, memes, and GIFs on 'Tharoorian English' had also made their way to the internet in the past.
