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.
