This morning when I was surfing online news portals I came across this incredible headline in the Malaysian Insider...(WARNING: You could get a coronary from laughing too hard at this. Reader discretion is advised.)
"Before thousands, Zamry vows to defend monarchy"
What? You don't find it funny? Okay, let me explain...
First, Zamry is a politician right? So no point him vowing anything, right? We all know politicians vow at the drop of the proverbial hat. And of course, they don't mean a word they vow.
Second, defend the monarchy? Zamry belongs the group that, not so long ago under a different leader, were almost calling for dissolution of the monarchy. And not in such polite language either. Remember that? Now suddenly vows are made to defend the very institution they had wanted to destroy...in front of thousands some more. Now, if we findd out that those thousands actually believe this shit...then it really is time to emigrate. Singapore might even be an option. Oh sorry...a neighbouring country in the south, I mean.
Finally, to those of you who have suggested that my silence on the blog might mean that I have been 'bought' over. The answer is no. RM5 million, even if they offered, don't buy shit these days anyway.
