Nothing funny also...

(Laura practising her impression of a parliamentary comedian.)


Very strange leh. There is actually nothing funny or laughable in The Star today except in the comic strips. Hmmm...maybe it is the weekend and the local jokers are taking it easy for the next few days. I reckon some of them are checking out the latest plasma or LCT television sets to save on electricity.

But seriously folks, here's something hilarious.

As we all know, there has been all this hoo-hah recently about Amir Mohd's film "Lelaki Komunis Terakhir". First approved with "U" certificate. Then banned by Home Ministry. Then debated in parliament. Then special (read FREE) screening for all the YB's. All that happened because of? Chin Peng. The communist fler from last time. Why all the fuss? It was because people who'd never seen a single frame of the movie say that the subject matter will offend Malaysians who lived through the Emergency or who were victims of those communist bad guys or that the film glorifies Communism and Chin Peng. Ya ya ya...

A fellow blogger commented...""...A huge fuss made over Chin Peng and the deaths he caused during the Emergency but now Emperor Akihito is going to visit Perak and NO ONE says a word about Japanese War Crimes culpability - as the representative of an unrepentant and unapologetic nation which caused so many deaths to loyal Malayans and Brits in the Second World War, why isn't HE banned from entering the country?..."

Pak Lah has invited the Emperor of the Land of The Rising Sun to come visit. Yeah la. Why nobody make any noise about this? Wait, wait, wait...did we just hear something coming from the comedians in the funny house with the big M sign over the driveway? "Ooops! We f**ked up. Again. There goes our weekend. Sigh. Okay la. Got to go prepare some statement or other to ban la. Shit!"

I went to check the archives of The Star. Here's the reason why nobody has protested this intended visit..." “We also noted that being close neighbours, relations between us must benefit both sides,” Abdullah said."

Ah, relations must benefit both sides. I see. The movie got benefit who? Yeah la. Ban, ban, ban.

hehe...this reminds me of a rib-tickling, laugh-till-you-drop-on-the floor moment. happened in the 90's. you remember that bobby brown song, 'humping around'? it means, fucking around of corz but because the powers-that-be didn't know its meaning, the song was approved for airplay and..urmm..shot (pun intended) all the way to pole position on radio 4's top 10!! if only they knew...

hahahhaahehehehe...

oh yeah oh yeah! let's humpin around!

Humpin' Around (Bobby Brown)

When you trust someone and
You know you're on their back
You ain't got no
Trusting about you

And you claim that you
Don't care what where I'm at
You've given me reason
To doubt you

Say you trust someone
Why you calling all around
Think I've got some
Dip on the side

Girl, you don't trust no one
And you're constantly in doubt
You lose the game
If you play that way

[CHORUS]
Get up off my back
Save a heart attack
Ain't nobody humping around
No matter what they say
No, it ain't that way
Ain't nobody humping around

Come on, dance

When you love someone and
You want to love them right
Got to get more
Loving about you

When you know that
You're holding on too tight
Soon they will be
Leaving without you

Say that you love someone
Why you calling all my friends
Thinking I've got
Something to hide

Girl, you don't love no one
You don't know what love's about
You lose the game if you
If you play that way
Lyrics courtesy Top40db.

[repeat CHORUS]

Girl, if you trust someone
You don't call on everybody
Ain't nobody fooling around

And the more I think about it
You lose all your clout and
You lose the game, baby
If you play that way

[repeat CHORUS]

When you love someone and
You want to love them right
Got to get more
Loving about you

When you know that
You're holding on too tight
Soon they will be
Leaving without you

Say that you love someone
Why you calling all my friends
Thinking I've got
Something to hide

Girl, you don't love no one
You don't know what love's about
You lose the game if you
If you play that way

[repeat CHORUS 2x]

Stop

My name is Brown
That's what I'm called
So don't try to step to me
Wrong or you'll fall slow

Cause I just
Wanna kick soul to you
Maybe, baby, take control of you
Just like I told you

I wanna roll on
The tip that's moving
Able to make you move and groove
And leave you like
Ooh, when I touch you

Give you so much of the feeling
Of the deck that I'm dealing
When I rub you up and down
Yo, Stylz, kick it

Well, I know it's been awhile
Since you heard a change in our style
So what I've come to do is
Kick you something fly and new

A change, different
From the typical
A bit more than regular but
Not like the other's original

Cause originality and creativity
Add it up together
Equals the B.B.B. posse
Yeah, we're in the house
Yo, kick it!

[repeat CHORUS]

Girl, you said you love me
And you said you trust me
Why do you think
I'm fooling around

I can't stand the pressure
You know I'm yours forever
Ain't nobody, nobody
Nobody humping around

[repeat CHORUS 2x]

Throw your hands in the air
Come on, come on

[repeat CHORUS]

Veni, Vidi, Vici

Divide and Conquer! That's how our G rules.
By dividing Malaysians, they have everyone of us in check.

So far they're doing a Great job, only knowledge and will could break this mold and we Malaysians have a nasty habit of keeping the same ol, same ol.

Hey, thanks for highlighting my comments on Akihito's impending visit!

patrickteoh said...

you're welcome symposium. thanks for the comment. I am sure you read that LKT is still banned. But strangely, nobody has made a squeak about the Emperor's visit. I wonder why?
mob1900, I choose to think that all this silliness by our 'leaders' is having the opposite effect. It's actually uniting Malaysians. In a good laugh initially but eventually I hope united for bigger things. Hope.
Thanks for the lyrics, bonkersz and babybear. There was once when RTM banned the Beatles' "Puff The Magic Dragon" because they said it was a drug song. Puff, the magic drags in. What imagination. Wish it was better used.
