Regardless of the tensions at the border, Pakistan, especially the Pakistani TV, keeps giving Indians reasons to laugh every now and then. In yet another gaffe that left the people on social media in splits, a Pakistani female TV anchor confused Apple Inc with apple the fruit.

In a clip of a TV show, which is doing the rounds on social media, the anchor is seen having a discussion with a panelist who is talking about the company Apple Inc. “The income of the Apple is much bigger than Pakistan’s budget”, the panelist said. The panelist had not yet finished when the TV anchor interrupted and said that she had heard somewhere that there are numerous varieties of apple, without realizing the panelist was actually talking about Apple Inc.
She did not realize her mistake until the panelist corrected her and said he was actually referring to the company Apple Inc and not the fruit.
The hilarious interaction soon went viral and jokes started ouring in.
I don’t blame her. The country just knows Kashmir, terrorism, bricks, mullahs and misery. They are completely insulated from the outside world.

Entertainment through TV anchoring is one area where India can never match Pakistan.

Some hailed the panelist for maintaining his calm and not bursting into laughter at the anchor’s ignorance.
Hats off to the man!! What control!! Had I been there would have probably fallen off my seat laughing ?

Recently, Pakistan made itself an object of ridicule, when, during the live streaming of the press conference of the provincial government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, the cat filter got accidentally turned on, making the faces of the people look like cats.
