    We love to show off a little bit here in the Lepland. :))
    It seems to me like a HUGE playground here. :)

    @catherinebear:disqus Catherine, we shared King`s performance at the launch of Amber`s Podcast with LEPsters here but unfortunately King was`nt around so he has`n`t seen his own performance, so I am posting it again.

    It`s been 10 years since I first saw this video but it still kills me with laughter

    Ladies and Gentlemen please give it up for Teacher Ruke @teacherlukepod:disqus

    Dear Friends,

    Luke’s English podcast is a platform provided by LUKE for learning a language, which is freely available for all of us. Let’s keep this as a resourcesful channel to exchange meaningful conversation .We should avoid an unproductive and illogical communication.
    Regards.

    • Good luck with that Ashish. :)

    • Jack

      My Friend,

      You want us to be all serious and long faced, I am sorry but that ain`t happening. For me, comments section is a utopian place where I can have fun and where I can de-stress myself. And also King doesn`t say anything to us regarding the quality of posts.

      @teacherlukepod:disqus King, I constantly bicker here in the comments section. Is it ok with you or do you get annoyed? Kindly reply

      • Hi Jack,
        I don’t mind if you bicker, chat about fun things and so on. I don’t expect the comment section always to be a place for serious language discussion (although that’s good too) but I don’t really like videos or pictures of disgusting things because it’s going to give people a bad impression of the website. So, please don’t post gross or childish images.
        (See – I’m all grown up and responsible now)

      • Jack

        King, did you like my sketch or did I hurt your feelings by making that wonderful sketch.
        (King, what is happening here in the comments section) :(

      • Cat

        Life is happening. :))

      • Ashish Nagaonkar

        Hi, Jack .
        Sometimes we all like to make fun ,and it’s vital, but it doesn’t mean to hurt someone subliminally. Mentors ,”Kings” have been considering respectable in all the times.Every tradition says respect your Mentor. Sketch is an art when it doesn’t work properly on canvas it ruines the maker’s ability,and if it works on canvas , it enlights all.
        Sketch makes one to laugh, if it is played properly with right timings,if goes worng it itself laughs ……….

      • Jack

        It laughs at the maker – I get you Sir. But that`s what I wanted to achieve

    • Cat

      :-))
