Help As price spikes, onion jokes do the rounds
On a day when India was paying up to Rs 80 for a kilo of onions, jokes about the bulb began making the rounds. Mobile users exchanged and forwarded texts, with quite a few thinking up their own wisecracks. On Twitter, #onions became a trending topic in India.

@harkamalsingh recalled a Bappi Lahiri song, and modified the lyrics: Pyaaaaaaaaz! Pyaz! Pyaz! Pyaz!….. Chahiye thora pyaz, thora pyaz chahiye.

@prasannasp retweeted a Rajinikanth joke saying the Tamil star could make onions cry, to which @indushree responded: but can he bring down (the) price?

@koolkunaly2k referred to the ad where the groom’s side demands Pan Parag, substituting the pan masala with onion: Humme kuch nahi chahiye, Lekin baratiyon ka swagat pyaaaj se hona chahiye…

More tweets:
@jhunjhunwala With Onions and other vegetables discussed so much on twitter, twitter may open a section called TwitMandi.

@lindsaypereira So, the thing about onions is we cry when they’re around, and also when they’re not, yes?

@KanwarSodhi If someone’s acting really pricey, do we say they are going onions?

The Mint’s blog ran a page full of onion jokes. Here are some texts that went around:

* If Guru Dutt were alive today he would make a film about a poet struggling to buy a kg of onion: Pyaaza.

* Shankar will now remake his Tamil film Anniyan. It’ll be called Onion.
