ANIL NETTO message this afternoon read: Hi Bernard, hope your health is holding up. Everything OK? I replied: Have been laughing myself into wellness since the UMNO GA. He replied back: They are so desperate and panicking.
On Friday the three doctors that took care of me when hospitalized, remarked that I look so much better although no medicine was prescribed when discharged. I told them that I have been entertained into paroxysms of laughter provided by UMNO assembly. Dr K bin Kalid (evidently a Pakatan supporter) gave me a high-five. Dr T asked what then when the Assembly is over? I said I will venture online and read JOCELINE TAN. Laughter, of course, is alien to this UMNO Spin Mistress, as we have often heard that laughter is the best medicine except for treating verbal diarrhea. Nah, she still hasn’t got it despite many volleys fired at her. Haven’t we been entertained by her political humor that has gone beyond chortling at stupidity? She still has not realized that an UMNO friend in need is normally a pest! Can I suggest this new code of conduct for journalist like her, like a law that requires types like her be hooked up to lie detectors! On reflection wouldn't truth detectors be more economical? Humor was in the air as Khairi, Adnan Yakob and Reezal Merican etc shared with the UMNO delegates. But all that escaped our Matahari Tan. Which reminds me of what Mohandas Gandhi cautioned, “If I had no sense of humor, I would long ago have committed suicide.” As an English teacher let me remind Adnan that cutting off an ear and jumping into the river are not figurative per se. Cutting off the nose to spite the face and go jump into the lake ARE. Ear, river? You would have got a clip behind the ears if you were in my English class. Go ask Terence Netto!
Have you found yourself in a fit of giggles just watching another person laugh non-stop? Why do we find other people's laughter so funny? I guess that's why they say laughter is infectious. But this kind of infection is a health benefit. So go on and spread the virus. And if you need help to get into a non-stop laugh riot, read these KEE THUAN CHYE’S offerings HERE. Soon you will have curious UMNO cybertroopers laughing with you!
I did and forgot to blog yesterday!
