A piece of humour in the current light

I went for a haircut today as I just can't stand not having short hair. Got ripped of £20! But you know what? The saloon I went to was owned by a Malaysian and all the stylists there are Malaysians. Gee… and I thought the brain-drain problem is only confined to professionals. Even hair stylists are moving away!

I got this from a forwarded mail and in the light of the recent “heat”, I reckon I should share this with you guys…

While walking down a street one day, a minister got hit by a truck and dies. His soul arrives in heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance.

“Welcome to heaven” says St. Peter. “Before you settle in, it seems there is a problem. We seldom see a high official around these parts, so we are not sure what to do with you”.

“No problem, just let me in” says the minister.

“Well, I have orders from higher up. What we’ll do is to have you spend one day in hell and one day in heaven. Then you can choose where you can spend eternity”.

“Really, I have made up my mind, I want to stay in heaven” says the minister.

“I’m sorry, we have rules” says St. Peter. Thereafter, St. Peter escorts the man to the elevator and they go down, down, down to hell. At the destination, they find themselves in a green golf course. In the distance is a clubhouse and standing in front of it are all his friends and politicians who had worked with him.

Everyone is happy and they run to greet the minister, shake his hands and all. They play a game of golf and then indulge themselves in lobsters, caviar and the most expensive stuff there is.

Also present is the devil himself who is really quite a friendly guy and they all had a good time dancing and telling jokes. They are having such a good time and before he realises it, it is already time to go. Everyone gives him a hearty farewell and waves as the elevator rises.

The elevator reaches heaven and the door opens where St. Peter is waiting for him and says “Now is the time to visit heaven”

So, 24 hours pass with the minister joining a group of contended souls playing harps and singing and jumping from one cloud to another. Time passes by and after a day, St. Peter returns and asks the minister to choose where he wants to spend eternity.

Without any hesitation he replies “Well, I never thought I will say it, I mean heaven has been great, but I think I am better off in hell”

So St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell. Now the doors open to a barren land covered with waste and garbage. He sees all his best friends all dressed in rags picking up trash everywhere.

The devil comes to the minister and naturally, the minister asked, “I don’t understand. Yesterday I was here and we were having such a good time playing golf, eating lobster and caviar and dance. Now this is just a wasteland full of garbage. What happened?”

The devil looks at him and said with a cheeky smile…

“Yesterday we were campaigning. Today, you voted”

I am off to Peterborough this weekend. You guy have a good time too ya!

P/S: Kenny Mah said his name has been misspelled in the electoral check. I think we should all check and make sure the spelling is correct. What if they deny you your right to vote because of this “spelling error”?

gina said...

Very ridiculous. How can they misspell name when we submit IC also.. aiyoh..

And what I don't understand is, they encourage you to vote.. and yet take more than 6 months to register your name in the list. What multimedia super corridor? What IT literate country! Kiss my arse!

warrior2 said...

would you prefer to play harp and sing and jump cloud for eternity or collect thrash?

BTW, in hell, when it is campaining time, they play golf, eat caviar, drink champange etcetc and you have many campaining periods.

They may collect trash but they also enjoy a lot during the many campaining times.

The minister made the right choice.

You people who think this is a funny joke dont!

HEHE

svllee said...

Aiyah ..Zewt, I would have told you about Mr Toppers off Tottenham Court Road, very quick one..£8 for haircut.(.£1 per minute plus £2 tip), everytime.

kennymah said...

1. Yup. They misspelt my second Chinese name, from "Ying" to "Yik". It was fine the last time I voted. Somehow they managed to get a gremlin in the system since then. Genius.

2. I love this email-story... it comes about nearly every election-time, you know? Cos nothing ever changes...

But.

Maybe this time. Something will. Go out and vote, guys!

Alvin Lim said...

saloons in london are meant for rich people :P i for 1, wont go. hahaha. maybe yes to those 6 pound stores...not 20 pound!

Manal said...

Maybe u can try book as a model at Toni&Guy. They will charge u around 10 quids and the hairdresser is in his/her final year training. Check it out at their website. And if u had free time in the Wednesday morning, u may also head down around South Bank to Toni & Guy Academy (book it in advance) and the trainee will wash and trim your hair for 5 quids.


Polling day in 2 weeks time. That will be my 1st time ever voting. Hopefully it will be more Bersih and Telus on ballot countings!
