Malaysian Academy Awards? Political Humour

It's a wonderful saturday morning and I've got 2 appointments before a 5pm practice. I thought I'll throw in something humourous from RPK's site

Disclaimer (the only serious statement here): If you don't get the jokes, it's high time you read the papers. The Bible exhorts us to "watch and pray". You probably won't find it funny if you are not up to date with current affairs. How are you to pray when you don't watch? Sometimes apathy cuts down our effectivenesss in music ministry.

1. The best alternative lifestyle drama award

a) Ahmad Ismail, the ex-Umno Chief of Bukit Bendera, Penang, in ‘Boys to men’ (shot in his apartment in Batu Feringgi in Penang)

b) Kevin Morais, the DPP of MACC, in ‘I’m dreaming of a white Christmas’ (shot in England)

c) Khairil Annas Jusoh, the special aide to the Prime Minister, in ‘Never kiss and tell’ (shot in Seri Perdana in Putrajaya)

And the winner is…

2. The best courtroom scene dialogue award

a) The Karpal Singh sedition trial, ‘ultra virus means insulting the Sultan’

b) The Teoh Beng Hock death inquiry, ‘Have you ever jumped off from a building?’

c) The Anwar Ibrahim sodomy trial, ‘Charged for sex with a duck but evidence for sex with a chicken’

And the winner is…

3. The best double-speak dialogue award

a) Ibrahim Ali for his ‘I am a Director of Vincent Tan’s company because I am opposed to the Chinese controlling the economy’

b) Muhyiddin Yassin for his ‘I support Najib’s 1Malaysia as long as we maintain the Ketuanan Melayu policy’

c) Chua Soi Lek for his ‘The Chinese are not running dogs to the Malays but Umno is the big brother to MCA’

And the winner is…

4. The highest budget drama award

a) PKFZ: RM12 billion and still counting

b) MAS: RM9 billion down and no end in sight

c) Bakun: damn that dam and what was the cost again?

And the winner is…
