We have just been drubbed by England in the second test, and we have only ourselves to blame for our misery. I mean, we have only Dhoni to blame for our misery. He famously (publicly) asked the curators at Wankhede to prepare a spinning wicket, something that would give Ojha, Ashwin and Bhajji something to sink their teeth into. Unfortunately, the England spinners sunk their teeth in a little deeper, kind of like in Twilight, and levelled the series 1-1.
Dhoni's words illustrate that one must always be careful what one wishes for, and that one must always be careful before speaking. Here are a few more things that people (might have) said, that happened to blow up spectacularly in their faces:
"OK, I'll do an on-screen kiss. After all, how hard can it be to kiss Katrina convincingly?"
- Shah Rukh Khan

"I've been a music director so long. Why don’t I try my hand (and chins) and acting, for a change?"
– Bappi Lahiri
"My video for Baby is going to be the most viewed video on youtube for ever. The only way anyone can ever beat it is if a Korean who looks like Kim Jong Un, drops out of the Berkley College of Music, thinks for 10 years of how to make a superhit, and then decides that acting like a horse will get him 832 million views. And that’ll never happen, right?"

"Let me tweet about Bal Thackeray"
– Digvijaya Singh
"Let me file a written complaint"
– Rakhi Sawant
Rakhi Sawant and Digvijay Singh are truly two peas in a pod
"If we make an equal number of wrong umpiring decisions against both teams, it'll cancel out and we can make up for our incompetence"
– Aleem Dar and Tony Hill
"Let me make a public post on Facebook that does not show the right level of reverence to every leader in India with a sizeable following"
– 90% of the people in an Indian jail, very soon
"I want a timepass movie. Light entertainment. Life of Pi seems like a good fit. The name is short"
– Someone who’s shortly going to receive a rude shock
Life of Pi is, by no means, a light watch
"I need work. Let me go act as the villain in a Rajinikanth movie"
– Any suicidal actor
