Fairify Your Desktop!

I made a wallpaper of the Fairness Cream products. You can download it here. (1024×768): Fairness Cream Wallpaper (2691)

Credits and such: In a shameful example of how to exploit twitter to get ideas for comics without self effort (also known as crowdsourcing), I asked people to suggest fairness cream names. The selected names are by @Pappuk89, @brainstuck and @VarunShenoy. The rest of the suggestions are below:

thefullmohanty: Fairplay

rajeshp_us: jet white, MJ fair, black nomore, white mischief

additiyom: white & ghastly, white & loathesome (for men)…

adwittyeah: Kaala Chaand Fairness Cream

rameshsrivats: White Until Dark

tantanoo: Erase ex?

nandaseth: dare and ghastly

    smitenator // February 22nd, 2010 at 1:40 pm

    Dude! you really need to get the nail pulling guy back into the comics.

  25. 25
    Santosh // February 22nd, 2010 at 2:11 pm

    I agree with smitenator. Toenail Pulling Guy would’ve been so much funnier than the guy in panel two. Otherwise, brilliant as usual :D

    Shantanu // February 22nd, 2010 at 4:09 pm

    I can take that tanning cream. It will help me get that perfect Duck Face and 12 packs all over the body. Not to mention a cleavage laden duck faced girl.

    Varun Shenoy // February 22nd, 2010 at 5:23 pm

    @saadakhtar thanks a gajillion for choosing my suggestion! :)

    Sriram Iyer // February 22nd, 2010 at 7:01 pm

    You should have prolly added another panel just after the ‘Brown-is-back’, baby thing. A bunch of gora-looking loser people, singing ‘hum gore hain toh kya hua, dil wale hain’! ;)

    Saurabh Nanda // February 22nd, 2010 at 11:03 pm

    Dude, can you change the wallpaper to have the bottles & text on the right side? Generally desktops are configured to have icons lining up from the left side of the screen.

  33. 33
    saadakhtar // February 22nd, 2010 at 11:49 pm

    @saurabh: Good point! Stupid of me to forget that. Will update this tomorrow :) Thanks.

    Debiprasad // February 23rd, 2010 at 12:28 am

    I really love those Fair & Fugly ads on TV. Why don’t they make it more interesting when they see their sell goes down? :P

  35. 35
    Debiprasad // February 23rd, 2010 at 12:29 am

    Hope Girls will see this comic more, so that they can click on the attractive ads on this page :)

    Abbas // March 15th, 2010 at 8:27 pm

    Well if you think the future hasn’t already been ruined, check out this show called “Jersey Shore”.
    It’s the seventh circle of hell and more “browner” than ever.

    Anju // March 25th, 2010 at 3:11 pm

    hahaha! That is brilliant. I was part of a women’s day campaign called “Dark is beautiful” – they would have loved using this!
    By the way, have you seen the new fairness cream ad (can’t remember which brand, they’re all dumb).. about how the ID scanner can’t recognise the girl after she uses the product. Ad agencies should just shut down instead of creating such rubbish!

    Subha // April 1st, 2010 at 4:32 pm

    HILARIOUS…..really liked the pouting tanned fotos…he he. What also struck me is that although the story is quite cliched but the smart use of the fotos and the “ramaswamys” puts it a grade apart….keep it up saad…

    Samir // April 10th, 2010 at 1:35 am

    Wow, this one has serious racist overtones.
    Is it just a coincidence or was Chennai deliberately left out of the pics of the 4 metros to make a queasy little point about the colour of their skin and it’s supposed immunity to any fairness cream?

  54. 54

    We need a ‘Like’ button for every strip. Relevant example: Crackeddotcom
    I’ve liked you site once, but I want to keep annoying my friends with notifications on particular strips. Because they’re THAT good.
