Fantastic Facts and Funnies
A good friend of mine alerted me to this NST report about something that the Minister of Information, Rais Yatim said for inclusion as a Fantastic Fact and Funny.
At first I was just going to cut and paste the headline here and let you have a good laugh. But when I read the rest of my friend's accompanying email I thought that I would share it with you in its entirety. Although I have not yet gotten his permission but I am sure he won't mind. So here it is......
"We are not saying that they cannot use Facebook or Twitter but when using such facilities they must upkeep the values taught by Islam, Buddhism or Christianity to maintain our culture,"
Eh? he forgot a few. And since when was Christianity and Buddhism parts of "Malaysian, especially Muslim," culture?
"They are just selling Facebook, Twitter, L-Band and various other services, even through space, as a product but we do not do such business. We accept all this in a state of cultural shock"
what the fuck is he talking about? and besides, MOL yang beli MySpace tu milik siapa? Vincent Tan ni kafir Barat ke? Kena shift gear lagi la rais.
"Newspapers are still relevant, so is Facebook, but do not be carried away with everything and disregard the old system"
HAHAHAHA. Carried away. With "everything". In case you wonder why I laugh, see next para, to wit:
"As a former analyze of the law in the country, I wish to advise the people that they cannot escape from the law for their actions."
What the fuck is an analyze of the law in the country? Cannot escape from the law? Tangkap la org baling molotov koktail/cat merah/batu/botol kat gereja2, surau2 dan gurdwara sentul. tangkap la mamat yang letup altantuuya. "Newspapers are still relevant"? hah shift gear lagi skali. Aiya enough la. i wanna vomit. oh yes, if he found that 62 per cent of msians understand the 1malaysia concept, then i must be a 38 percenter. i should make a jacket, like the illegal motorcycle gangs in the US, so I can better assist myself in not escaping the law of which Rais is such a brilliant analyze.
Okay, now if you're one of the 38%-ters, take a deep breath in and say out loud...............
