So what is it?

Now say after me, slowly.....SOOO...WAI....


The World Health Organisation has long declared it a pandemic. Most countries in South East Asia and East Asia have put in place stringent measures to contain the spread of the disease. Thermal scans at entry points...temperature checks at schools...voluntary home quarantines and so on. But in Malaysia our attitude seems to be..."Eh leh! What's the problem? Won't affect us too much la." And the perenial favorite, "How many mati (die)? 2 ah? Naer mine la." And we continue on our happy ways.

And our honourable (and I use this word rather loosely) ministers instead treat us to a debate on what to call the damned bug that causes the damned disease!!! The world calls it Influenza A (H1N1) And the Malaysian Minister of Health says that we should follow suit. And then...I suppose also because Malaysian politics recently has become a tad boring for the YB's...our Minister of Information jumps in and says, Cannot! That would confuse people. We call it Swine Flu! The original name ma.

Then he said that his reason was so that people (I suppose he means only Malaysians) would realise the danger of the disease and to get the message across to them more accurately.

Firstly, I am quite confused already at the first part of that statement. Realise the danger? If the disease kicks your stupid ass and you die I guess that's pretty damn dangerous isn't it? Even if you call the bug Cik Siti.

Secondly, what's the second part of that statement trying to say? Get the message across more accurately by calling it Swine Flu. What is the YB trying to say? That only pork-eaters will die ah? Or worse, it's all the pork-eaters fault ah? That kind of reasoning is more dangerous than any flu virus will ever be.

Our YB then proceeded to (he is in charge of RTM radio and television ma) inform us that Swine Flu or in Bahasa Malaysia, Sel-se-ma Babi, is easier for radio and TV announcers to say compared to In-flu-en-za A (H1N1). Proves what I have always suspected. RTM radio and TV announcers have problems pronouncing words with more than 3 syllables.

I've always thought our minister of information an intelligent man. But he's increasingly proving that he is just .............

A POLITICIAN!

NIAMAH!!!

hahahah.. very true.. when i heard the news last night i was like WTF?? another flip flop... swine flu -> h1n1 -> swine flu.. :S

hahahhaahhaha Local presenters cant remember whether it N1H1 or was it H1N1 or maybe it was HN11, what an insult!

This orpahn (Yatim = orpahn = No?) fellar aslo mentioned that the word "Babi" will give better impact to the flu rather than khinzir, this orphan made it sound like 'babi' is a sin that God created.

Sudahlah yatim-piatu, if you have nothing else better to do and want do not want to be left out of the limelight then goteach your staff to remember it's 'H1N1' and nothing else.

Babi, easy to say ma.Malaysian like to take thing easy and words that are
complicated don't appeal to them.So
how to progress as a nation.Maybe,
they don't want us to be clever,so
that they can continue exploiting us
forever.

I want to pee on his face, and add the the word "tiu".

donplaypuks® said...

I think his agenda is to rub it in against pork eaters, and therein is an Islamic undertone, as though to say, 'see, I told you so!'

So, on who do we blame mad cow disease?

It is the Minister of Health's prerogative as to the correct terminology to be used. The Minsiter of Info has to follow suit. Otw, he's just being an AH!

Hamba said...

The orphan of any moral, minister is truly "Bodoh Piang". Can our PM at least get someone who knows he is an idiot as minister? Someone who knows he's an idiot wouldn't dare open his mouth, at least. Here, we have an idiot who don't even realized that he is an idiot! An idiot who knows he's an idiot is 100 times better than this Rice Bran cereal head!

Anonymous said...

Can't blame him...he is old but trying his best to stay useful. To us his suggestion has no logic. But to him that is his contribution to the people.He thinks that by calling it H1N1 the people will be less afraid of the flu. This is the greatest joke. If we call cancer by another name does he think that people will be less afraid.

i complete the sentence for you

.........an idiot, bloody nincompoop, thinks he is smart and when he loses his balls (oops.. rocks) and yet says it is a win win situation.

anyway i watch his tv interviews for comedic value only....and reminds me of Syed al Blur Blur.

(A)H1N1 or (B)Rais Yatim(and the similar species) is the more dangerous virus?

I think the (B)type virus poses more harm to our society, don't you think?

kopitelp16 said...

Hey... go easy on this guy la.....!

Selsema Babi sounds more terrifying, so in that sense, you'll take more precautions. H1N1? WTF is that? See? Now you're scared by the mere mention of BABI!

Maybe we should call the flu Selsema Rais. That will be more terror! Aiyo.... I'm scared oledi!

pinsysu said...

let's call it "Rais_Yatim_Swine_Hisham1Najib1_BN_flu". we dowan to miss anything & we make sure the msg flew across to highlight how dangerous it is! in fact Msia is infected with this disease & the country could die if PR_vaccine is not administered in time! Msia is doomed!

Benjamin Cheong said...

I like a little joke that I read on Kenny Sia's blog...

Mom: "You better be careful ah! Now even Kuching got Ah Hee Nee virus ok!"
Me: "Ah Hee Nee? It’s called A(H1N1) lah."

artchan said...

on the other hand,,this rice bugger could be a genius...

if we call it selsema babi...we can tell the world malaysia is H1N1free...never mind the fact that it is the same virus.

We can declare to the world that we don't have H1N1..although people are dying.

This rice bugger must think the the world is an idiot.

And the farking health minister does not realize that the orphan is trying to take his job. Or is that MCA flers are hopelessly timid to speak up?

Anonymous said...

Is he trying to start a racial issue here....!!!

Utusan couldn't get their own on "their" side......

So...! Someone must act "smart" to call it "Swine Flu" to proof it to the professionals mah..........!!!

You all don't know meh........????
Let's all give him some attention lah.....!!!!!!!!!!!!!

elle said...

i knew u will write on this dungun minister's statement....
and u are right...why only in this country that we have such high "IQ" ministers...

Ravepotato said...

You tell me which is more sad..a YB ignorant enough to utter those statements or the fact that our so-called information minister don't actually know S**T...

There's a reason why swine flu is no longer called swine flu, and why CDC and WHO opted for influenza A (H1N1). Can someone please kindly inform our 'information' minister that the mentioned flu strain was proven already to not have come from swines? This is so...SIA SUI...

The Perakians has an choice phrase for this Orphan fellow ... it's CCB .. short for Chow Chee Bai..

In Hokkien I will scolded him as "Pig Brain".

Nothing much to say about a "Pig Brain" even when you try to reason with a "Pig Brain" he will not understand. "Pig Brain" is always a "Pig Brain"

If this "pig brain" doesn't open his mouth, nobody thinks he is stupid. But the moment he opens his mouth, it confirms he is stupid!

Been waiting for your take on this. To tell the truth, I half expected somethig more scathing but this is still good nevetheless. When I first read about the news, my jaw dropped. Had to pick it up from under my car. Totally speechless was the only way to describe my reaction then. For you to actually able to put it in writing says much of your proliferation. I would've written mostly, if not all expletives. Niamah would've have been the mildest term! Thanks Patrick, for taking the steam off me

Patrick,

I suspect he is possibly infected with the highly deadly disease "Selsema Gila Babi" which is a combination of "Mad Cow Disease" and "Swine Flu". Being the first and only casualty in Malaysia and the world, it best explains his illogical reasoning. He can proudly claim to be the only 1Malaysia-n with this disease (did you not see him wheezing and panting like a cow/pig after this morning's exercise??)

I think Pat has been too kind with his description of this mini..ster. Just goes to confirm that small mind thinks small things.Still wondering why this country is what it is?

This bugger is as intelligent as Pak Lah is alert and aware of what's going on. Proves that if you have been with UMNO long enough, you become a corrupt piece of s***

Anonymous said...

There's more, on NTV 7, he also said the word "babi" is preferable as most malaysian's dont understand the meaning of Khinzir.

If they want 3 syllables can just call it Ahini, but to Indians this will sound like Moghini (female ghost).

Looks like Rais is just jumping on the sloganeering bandwagon.

Remember the MAT REMPITS..

first rebrand the as "Mat Cemerlang"

then " Mat jahanam" but until now the problem prevails.

He is just a racist pig. A no brainer politician who thinks he is smarter than the World Health Organisaion.

Not sure if he realises the pork eaters are the main race which is contributing to his fat paycheck.

A real F@#$er

Which is easier to pronouce:

Babi or Khinzir?

I rest my case.

RTM = Rais (Rise?) To Melayu?

Dylans said...

Shouldn't call it Selsema Babi. This pandemic disease are infecting everyone including the Muslim's. So if a Muslim infected by "Selsema Babi"...is he/she going to be no longer Halal? This is a question in my head hope not offending anyone....H1N1 or influenza A is more professional compare if we called it babi or either khinzir...
