This one was passed to me by a friend. I must share with all of you. But I guess u have to be a Malaysian to appreciate it…
In November 2006, President George W Bush was visiting several Asian
countries including Indonesia and Singapore.
Bush: Well Condi, is there anything you need from Singapore that I can
pick up for you while I am there next month?
Rice: That’s very kind of you, Mr President, but no, there’s really
nothing I need right now from there. But Laura will certainly enjoy the
shopping there, sir.
Bush: Ah yes, she’s been talking about it. Lee’s wife has promised to
take her shopping at the newly opened Vivocity.
Rice: I’m sure she’ll enjoy a trip to Sentosa too. Especially now that
the haze from Indonesia has more or less lifted. Talking of which,
you’re going to Indonesia too, aren’t you sir?
Bush: Yes I am, and while I’m with Susilo Bambang, Laura will visit
Acheh and give away a cheque to the tsunami victims.
Rice: How sweet. Would you be dropping by Malai Shia, sir?
Bush: Naw, giving them a miss.
Rice: Don’t blame you sir, they have some rough motor cyclists there.
Called themselves “Mad Ram Piss” or something. They think they’re the
Asian equivalent of our Knievel. They would certainly scare Laura to
Bush: Nah, Laura is made of sterner stuff. But that’s not the reason
why we’re not going to Malai Shia, Condi.
Rice: Oh. Then it must be their traffic jams. They even have monorails
that run off the tracks and dangle in mid-air. And highway pillars
Bush: Really? Incompetent, that’s all I can say. But no, that’s not the
reason why we’re skipping Malai Shia either.
Rice: Oh I know. You don’t want to distract the Prime Minister right
now, isn’t it? Heard he’s getting some shitty stuff from his predecessor telling him
off like a kid.
Bush: If Clinton did that to me, I’d personally throw him off an F-16.
But no, that’s also not the reason why we’re skipping Malai Shia.
Rice: Must be the floods then, sir? It’s the monsoon season now and it
floods bad after just two hours of rain. Landslides too; bring down
houses but then people there build 4-storey bungalows without approval.
Bush: Naw, the rain wouldn’t bother us. That’s also not the reason for
not going there.
Rice: I give up! Why are you visiting Indonesia and Singapore, and yet
not go to Malai Shia, Mr President?
Bush: The reason, Dr Rice, is that I don’t want their Religious
Department people banging on our hotel room door in the middle of the
night, demanding to see our marriage certificate. Now THAT would scare
the hell out of Laura!!!…..
