Give me all your money or...I'll shave my head.

(South Korean opposition fler and some other flers getting their free hair cuts and maybe changing some government policy in the process.)

On the front page of The Sun also appeared this hilarious story...

Some guys in Korea had their heads shaved in public to protest something or other that the government did or didn’t do? I’ve always been intriqued by acts like these.

Something happens that some people don’t like or disagree with…let’s go shave our hair in public. Sure they will buckle in after that one.

Like, if I was the government there the shit I care about you wanting to look like Kojak. You want to shave, shave la. How is that going to affect anything one iota? You mean people are going to watch and say, “Aiyoh! So poor things la these bald flers. Come let’s overthrow the government now.”

You can hold a demonstrasi with demonstrators holding placards saying 'no toll increase', 'no petrol hike', and they'd still won't take notice. And it doesn't get to be aired on national news either. Mebbe on CNN...

No lah Patrick, these flers are just using an excuse. They know the bald look is in, and they wanna recapture the glory days of their youth (and get their mugs on the front page). I'm bald and I get lots of girls. These guys just using government policy to legitimise their new hairstyles only. Who knows how they think in Korea?

Somehow, somewhere a minister is thinking, "At least we are better than Ghana!"

kenot jalan this idea-lah, remember our Botak-Gate?
They will shave BOTH your heads wether you're playing mahjong or protesting...

Aiyah... at least they are doing something la. Better than all of us... just know how to complain complain complain here but do nothing. ok la... maybe some brave souls will go protest against the toll hike... but the rest of us... cakap cakap saja la.

actually, in Malaysia, bald means u have done something wrong...
in tv, always can see the jailbird get free shave before thrown into jail.

and who can forget the mahjong uncles who were caught playing mahjong and subsequently given a free shave?

It's their culture. It's a form of silent protest. The Japanese do it too. When a Japanese employee is unhappy with some of management's acts or policies he shaves his head bald to make his disapproval known. I have personally seen this happen. I think we should not poke fun or laugh at the behaviour of people from other cultures. It's not only rude but also shows our insensitivity and ignorance.

It's all symbolic-lah Patrick. If you really want one that works then the monks who immolated themselves in Vietnam to protest the American's campur tangan were awesome. Cannot compare to these lame ducks.

Hey mohd, we're not better than Ghana anymore. Not since the last World Cup. They made it there. We didn't. Next.

zewt, I don't just cakap cakap and I am sure there are hoardes of others who don't too. What about you? And I missed that jet story.

Outsider, protesting by shaving heads is a culture? Hmmm...I don't think so. I was not poking fun at the Korean flers I was just trying to...oh never mind la.

And now we've got Dave Avran who is bald and says he does NOT get the girls. Shit Dave you should have told me. I shaved my head last Thursday. Shit!

Self immolation? Wow! Better make sure that it's a big ass issue you're putting on the flames there, bro.
