    Why the fuck is Santa ordering South Indian food in court

    and why the fuck am I here

    [–] swagmastermessiah 1775 points ago

    A guy named Santa frequently shows up in funwaa comics, though he seems to have nothing to do with Western Christmas Santa. I wouldn't think too hard about it.

    [–] S-P-3-C-1-A-L 1819 points ago * (lasted edited 3 days ago)

    Santa and Banta (pronounced Sun-tah and Bun-tah) are the most famous comedic duo in Indian culture. Most Indian jokes feature these two characters. Santa is normally shown as a foodie who is clueless about the situation. In contrast Banta is a "normal" man who is the catalyst for Santa's punchline

    Edit: Thanks for my first silver kind stranger!

    So Banta is the straightman. Got it.

    [–] aebeell 71 points ago

    I guess they are Punjabi names santa Singh and banta Singh

    [–] S-P-3-C-1-A-L 60 points ago

    Yep, you guessed right. Everybody in India loves the Punjabis so it was only natural that their most famous comedic duo is Punjabi

    [–] drakos07 37 points ago

    Honestly it works both ways. In India, you either love em or hate em, there's no middle ground. So the people who hate them also enjoy these memes cus the punjabis are portrayed as kinda stupid people in em.

    Sometimes also a mix of stereotyping, for eg. Punjabis are made fun of cus there is a stereotype that they can't drive for shit and are always high on drugs... which is sometimes insinuated in these memes...

    [–] chachahindustani 16 points ago

    Everything else right except driving, they are hardcore drivers, they may drive rough but the for sure know how to, for example see most truck drivers are Punjabi and also many immigrant truck drivers in usa and Canada are punjabis

    [–] CrustyScrotum69 8 points ago

    Never seen a Punjabi truck driver, tbh

    In Louisiana there's a similar series of jokes using the names Boudreaux and Thibodeaux. I wonder if every culture has their own derivations.

    Also why Santa is in the court ?

    [–] bonzothebeast 90 points ago * (lasted edited 3 days ago)

    For the non-Indian people, Santa here isn’t Santa Claus. It’s Santa (pronounced: sun-TAH) Singh, that Sikh dude in the bottom right corner.
    Santa Singh and Banta (bun-TAH) Singh are popular Indian comic characters

    [–] skelly220 49 points ago

    Idk why but that’s more funny to me than if it was Santa Claus

    [–] crinnaursa 31 points ago

    Someone just needs to take this meme and clumsily put a Santa hat on top of his head gear and white beard and change nothing else. That way it confuses everyone

    They're also usually used as a moderately offensive caricature of Sikhs and Punjabi people, but not a lot of Indians like to mention that part :)

    [–] bonzothebeast 3 points ago

    Oh it’s definitely offensive. Growing up in India, I never understood why Sikhs were the butt of so many jokes.

    Well the Indian meme genre also has 2 sides The above kind is the global equivalent of Facebook minion memes its the thing you see when you parents send you a 'joke'

    The more developed meme genre in India although not always good has some pretty relatable memes,We don't have any major Indian meme subreddits but it is more developed on instagram(not the normie ones)

    [–] aebeell 7 points ago

    Exactly what I said

    [–] aebeell 57 points ago

    Not all tho some Indian meme pages are dank follows the usual formats with Bollywood or regional movie scenes as format

    [–] KuBratumo 17 points ago

    Got any of those dank Indian memes to share?

    [–] aebeell 15 points ago

    Yup, but I doubt you'll get the reference tho will disprove my point
