And the winner is...

(Adam grimacing as he reads through the caption contest entries)










Well, the entries have been vetted and the winner has been chosen. It has been a tough process picking a winner from the more than 280 entries received for the caption contest. Not many were funny. Some were downright rude. Some were pathetic. Some clearly showed that the writers should not give up their day jobs and go into comedy writing. All the entries kind of showed what we have known for some time now. That Malaysians have lost their sense of humour along with their petrol subsidies. But we said there would be a winner and so we have to pick one...................Patrick Teoh

What is it about Malaysians and infantile erection jokes? Many of the entries were with gay innuendos and hitting below the belt, literally. Instead of lampooning the scenario, some choose to make anonymous personal attacks on the minister. Maybe is the angst venting but surely the message is lost Anyway, congrats to the winner...........................TV Smith


The winning entry...

Right...and while we're about it, why not ask Najib and Samy too? Muhibbah ma. Can call it a night with the _____ trinity (fill in the blank with your choice of adjective). They might even pick up the tab. (SLAP *with sound effect* huh? *sleepy blink* oh, sorry, I was dreaming.)

Personally, I prefer the entry by Pengembara:

Patrick,

You are absolutely right, most of the comments were downright rude / crude and not even the slightest funny. Time for Malaysians to recondition their sense of humor and to remind oneself that genital bashing is not always humorous.

The winner has so far not come forward to claim the prize. In order to bring a conclusion to this contest I will set a deadline for claiming the prize. If it is not claimed by April 1, 2006 it will be forfeited. erina93, please claim your prize as soon as possible.

Maybe the thought of meeting TV Smith and/or Patrick Teoh is just too much for some people...(retch...vomit...retch)LOL.

erina93 said...

Can't believe I've won - still trying to digest and figuring out which of those prizes I would love to choose. No worries, I'll definitely claim it before the deadline!

I think option number 4 looks very good. Thats a very suave looking suit! and it even looks LRT-proof.
