Got smoke, water, rain all. Damn hard to see, boss.
I was scouring the newspapers for something appropriately funny to use as my first blogpost of 2012. There wasn't anything particularly funny the first couple of days. Then of course, my friend dropped a bombshell about joining Umno. Because he believed in Najib's transformation programmes or something like that. And so I took another day to calm my frazzled nerves and waited until today to share some funnies with you. Just two la actually.
In the Star today is the funniest story of the year. So far. It was reported that the Minister of Home Affairs, Hishammuddin Hussein had said that the organisers of the 901 - Free Anwar Campaign must guarantee that the rally will be peaceful. The police flers have also been very vocal in the media, both trad and alternative, warning people about attending the rally and that they (the police flers) will crack down hard on people attending ... blah blah blah.
Don't you think it's damn funny. The police threatening harsh action against demonstrators and the Home Minister wanting a guarantee from the organisers of the rally?
Things might have changed since I last went to sleep last night but isn't keeping the peace the role of the police? Why is it assumed that demonstrators will be violent? Damn funny kan?
Wait, wait, wait...actually Hishammuddin Hussein must take 2nd place for today's funnies la. His boys in blue are funnier! In The Star it was reported that some police fler in the ongoing investigation into the tear-gas and water cannon shooting incident at Tung Shin Hospital during Bersih 2.0 said that he didn't know that the building his men aimed the water cannon at was a hospital!!! HUH???
To reinforce his own defence Inspector Nor Hisham Razali, the officer in charge of the water cannon truck, also said that the 4 policemen controlling the water cannon truck were from Ipoh! If they are that clueless and from Ipoh how did they find their way to the hospital in the first place? Maybe got GPS in the water cannon truck lor. Then the Nor Hisham fler go and say that their vision in the truck was limited due to the rainy weather and water on the windscreen. Cannot see properly wor. Baarger! Don't have windscreen wipers one meh?
I tell you ah, these flers damn funny la.
