Weekend funnies

I had almost given hope for something amusing before the weekend kicks in. Until I opened The Star today. In fact, no need to open already got funny. Right there on the front page. This photo was there...
 The Inspector-General getting some tips on gambling. All for training purposes only.

Now, if you read the story you will eventually find out that what the police 'say' they are doing is learning the skills to catch gamblers and cheats.  Now, that's all very good. But what I laughed about was the way the PDRM chose to go about publicising their strategy.  With their current public image I would imagine that the last thing the Inspector-General would do is to have photos of himself at a gambling table albeit a 'mock' one. Whatever the reasons given.  "To catch a thief we need to think like a thief," said the IGP, Ismail Omar.  I am sure that there were thousands of Malaysians who had a big laugh at that and might have even commented that the Malaysian police need no training in that area.  All I can say is that my heart bleeds for all the honest, hard-working and lowly paid Malaysian police personnel who must have cringed when their big boss said that.  But to be fair to the IGP when he was asked what kind of skills the policemen have acquired he replied, "That is confidential information. We do not want the enemy to know what we know." Yes of course.

And I must not forget to thank The Star's editors who have honed such a great sense of humour when coming up with photo captions for stories such as this......

"Full house: Policemen learning the various gambling games at the mini casino in the Cheras police college yesterday."

"Learning to gamble: Inspector-General Tan Sri Ismail Omar (front row centre) getting some tips on how to play a card game....."

When he was asked about abuse, the IGP smartly announced that he put his faith in his men. “Insya Allah (God willing), they will know their responsibilities and will not go against their badge,” he said.

Now to complete this great situation comedy I am waiting for JAKIM to come out with their take on this surely very HARAM practise of gambling.

What can we expect next from the IGP? Lessons on rape? Snatch theft? Mat Rempit motorcycle stunts?

 Na, here's your gold medal. Can you give me a house ah?

On another page of The Star today there is a less amusing but nevertheless laughable story.  The story is about Asian Games Gold medallist, Chai Fong Ying (pictured above). Chai won a Gold Medal for taijijian and taijiquan at the 16th Asian Games in Guangchou on Monday.  That is an achievement worthy of recognition for a Malaysian sportswoman. But that isn't what is laughable. What is quite amusing is that Chai actually said to the Malacca Chief Minister, Ali Rustam when she met him, "I will appreciate it very much if the state can reward me with a house."  I certainly hope that she meant it as a joke. Otherwise it will be a sad reflection of what levels we have sunk to as a nation.

Have a great weekend, folks!

Police learning the various gambling games ??? Ha..ha..ha !!! It's a joke of the century lah !!! There are so many Police "monitoring" the screen of Jack-pot machines in the many "Cafe's" around KOTA KINABALU and various towns of SABAH. They are already experts in gambling! It's a waste of public fund to provide the training man!!! The IGP and his team in HQ should come to SABAH for "free" training lah..~!

well ... after office hours or night time, the 'mockery' maybe will becomes real ...

Is this mock casino and the whole 'teaching-the-polices-to-gamble-for-undercover-task' thing was decided after the IGP watched Casino Royale or God of Gamblers?

I'm afraid that someday, they might bust themselves for this.

In the end, Senjata makan tuan might occur.

We have a bunch of dumb asses heading the various goverment agencies so we should no longer be surprised at the stupidity of these dumb assess. The PIG is definitely correct when he said that "to catch a thief, the police need to think like a thief" as this type of logic justifies the police action of using their firearms at every slightest opportunity since this is akin to "to apprehend a criminal, the police need to act as a violent criminal".

As for Chai Fong Yin, I don't blame her for asking for a house instead of she being awarded a stupid and worthless datukship for her achievement. Come on, if a malay guy can swim across the English Channel in the slowest time possible and still get a datukship for his "achievement", Chai Fong Yin's feat is definitely more commendable and deserving of a house.

I read about the mock casino... and immediately thought about what you would post up in yr blog here :P

But sakit hati to think about the hypocrisy that is their faces.

Very creative. Mock casino but real money behind the scene. Bribing the police right at the police station and even having the press take pictures.

Chai is a 'pendatang'. She won a gold medal showing off 'pendatang' kungfu. She should be grateful for being allowed to set foot on Malaysia. She is only entitle to a little wooden shed in the city of Melaka.

This must be a very 'niamah' thing that the police is learning gambling skills to catch cheaters of gambling.In the first instance,gambling is illegal in our country unless licensed by govt such as Genting,Sport ToTo,Magnum & DaMaCai.The licensed gambling house has their own team of 'police' to catch cheaters.So what is there for the police to catch them?
Better spend more time to learn how to fight street crimes!
Niamah Fulat!!!!!!

Usamae said...

Bro Pat,

Jokes aside. I really like the picture of the Asian Games gold medallist Chai Fong Ying. It really rhymes with your caption.

You did it on purpose, or it's purely coincident?

Anyway, good work, my friend.

Mamapumpkin said...

Errr....I know someone who plays the jackpot machine in a private club and errr....apparently many police officers go there to play/gamble too....all Muslim.....not in their uniform, of course. But they're all friends....I'm just saying....I don't mind them playing/gambling at all....maybe they were all undergoing real life practical training for the last few years???

Wah, Bolehland has come up with a new training centre. Soon Scotland Yard, FBI (Fcuk By Indians) and even our southern neighbour will send their personnel here for training. Yen Yen will be out of job. Malaysia will even be well known internationally.

Those idiots who come out with such ideas, are actually training their personnel to moon lighting. Those days retired personnel will apply to start security firms. Now it is even better, when they pension they apply for more gambling licence for mini casinos no time for robbery lah. Niaaaaaamah.......

After retirement they can open up tuition centre to teach those who wants to be a thief, or how to cheat in gambling.

After they have learnt the trade At the mock casino, they could then proceed to Singapore's casinos to try their luck.

KoSong Cafe said...

It would seem PDRM did not know what those people were doing when they were caught gambling?

Are there different classifications on charges for gambling? I wonder. For instance, penalties are different, depending on whether it was mahjong, poker, gin rummy, black jack, and so on. Anyway, I don't see the need for police to know how to gamble in order to catch people for gambling. Why not take pictures, or if circumstances permit, have a video recording for scrutiny later, even in court.

I can expect in future, if a policeman is caught with others gambling, he can claim that he was only on training!

I suppose the police are affected by MACC's prosecutor who asked Dr. Pornthip whether she had jumped off building before, in order to prove her competence!

The Australian media rarely publish any news about Malaysia.
Below is the news that hit the headlines today.

If the late Agong and the sultan of N.S. can gamble at the roulette table in Auckland for real what is wrong with the IGP. I saw the Agong in the VIP room, when he was there, gambling some years back when the Agong was in NZ having his holiday there. I actually took a photograph, on the quite though, of him at the table, without anyone else, If I can find it I will no doubt have it posted for for everyone to view.

Hishamuddin was reported saying the guidelines covering sedition on the Internet will be out next week, but not when they would be enforced. He added Information, Rais Yatim, Nazri Abdul Aziz; and the Attorney General’s Office had been roped in to draw up the new rules on sedition.

Bloggers beware.

By the way, will the police set up a mock massage parlour? They need to 'feel' massage to do their work?

The government-controlled media have begun running optimistic reports about the ruling federal coalition.

Umno owns and controls both the country’s largest media group, Media Prima Berhad (MPB) which owns English and Bahasa Malaysia newspapers, television and radio stations; and the Utusan Group, which publishes both Utusan Malaysia and the Kosmo tabloid. MCA now directly owns The Star and several radio stations and magazines while MIC owns the Tamil Nesan.

BN has told its media to play up “feel good”, “positive” reports and to find flaws of its political foes for the next few months ahead of a likely March 2011 federal election.

This so bloody funny! The phrase 'To catch a thief, you must think like a thief' takes a whole different meaning altogether. I always thought that to catch a thief or crook or who ever, it would be just be hard police work and proactive thinking on their part. So thinking like a thief to catch one, very good but I must ask this, tried catching a crooked politician lately?. Or must you (really now...seriously),think like one to do that?!?! NUMBNUTS!

RE: Chai 'Gimme a House' Fong Ying

,,, apparently, as a reward for her years of training and achievements which resulted in a GOLD medal (one of only FIVE at this moment that Malaysia have won in the Asian Games), the Melaka Chief Minister presented Ms Chai with a cheque to the amount of ,,, waaaait for it! ,,, RM3000!!!!

ps. I am not even going to say anything about the 'mock' casino in Cheras. It's TOO funny.

Can this strategy apply to catching a corrupt officer too. I wonder who will be teaching them. Aha! inhouse training from the expert. On second thought, not much training required. Many of them are expert in this area.

Anonymous said...

On the gambling thingy, Singapore is doing it as well, why nobody critised it? Set the abuse aside, is the intention really that bad meh?

As for Fong Ying, I think as a sport person, she shouldn't ask for it. Where is the passion for sport and the love for the country? Is it all just about money? What if she didn't won't any medal? Is she going to payback all the expenses?
