The unit simply printed 1,000 copies of a written examination containing 50 objective type questions about the history of the State from November 1, 1956, to November 1, 2006, and distributed among their colleagues and friends. Participants can refer textbooks and answer questions such as when was the police uniform modernised, formation of Alappuzha district, starting of the Dubai-Thiruvananthapuram flight service, President’s rule imposed in the State and so on. S. Chandrakumar, president of the Telecommunication Unit of the Kerala Police Officers Association, says the participants can also take copies of the question sheet and use them. Age is no bar for taking part in this contest. The prize winners will be announced after the State conference to be held in Malappuram on Saturday. Through the contest, the department is spreading a message, “Police is your friend. Interact with them without fear. Cooperate with them to help you.”

” What the hell are you doing in my bedroom?… And who are you?”
” This is not your bedroom,” the man replied, ” I am St. Peter, and You are in heaven.”
” WHAT! Are you saying I’m dead? I don’t want to die! I’m too Young,” said Rob. “I want you to send me back immediately.”
” It’s not that easy”, said St.Peter. ” You can only return as a Dog or a hen. The choice is yours.”
Rob thought about it for a while, and figured that being a dog is too tiring, but a hen probably has a nice and relaxed life.
” I want to return as a hen.”
And in the next second, he found himself in a chicken run, really nicely feathered. But now he felt like his rear end was gonna Blow. Then along came another hen.
” Hey, you must be the new hen St. Pe! Ter told me about,” she said.
” How do you like being a hen?”
” Well, OK I guess, but it feels like my ass is about to explode.”
” Oh that!” said the other hen. ” That’s only the ovulation going On. You
need to lay an egg.”
” How do I do that?” Rob asked.
” Cluck twice, and then push all you can.”
Rob clucked twice and pushed more than he was good for, and then ‘ plop’ an egg was on the ground.
” Wow” Rob said, ” That felt really good!”
So he clucked again and squeezed. And you better believe that there was another egg on the ground.
The third time he clucked, he heard his wife shout:
” Rob, for Christ’s sake! Wake up! You’re shittin’ all over the Bed!”
