Don't Laugh !


I bet you could laugh over and over again, over this latest fiasco by our very own Cyber Police plus the supporting act of the Attorney General's chambers.

ROCKY's BRU exposed this grave abuse of power and misplaced priority of our Cyber Police a short while ago, and it seems a jovial blogger who indulged in a bit of a satire in his blog-post is being victimised.

I say victimised because what blogger HASSAN SKODENG wrote in his blog was PURE SATIRE and not some seditious piece which could stoke the fire of racism in our country.

In the current politically-charged environment where many irresponsible idiots are registering all kinds of racists statements and videos in cyberspace, I had expected our Cyber Police to be more vigilant and nip such dangerous tendencies in the bud.

But I guess our Cyber Police are just interested in putting up a show - charge a 'laughing blogger' for his satire and expect to silence others who are actually doing this country and the government a favour by being the 'people's voice.

Get real man!

As suggested by a fellow blogger, I'm re-posting Hassan Skodeng's satire and I would like to remind all the readers, surfers, hackers and most importantly our CYBER POLICE that Hassan's piece is a SATIRE.

If you could understand what he wrote, you are expected to digest it and laugh or at least smile ... NOT to run to the Cyber Police, who in turn runs to the AG's boys, who in turn had somehow decided that Hassan's JOKE is a CRIME.

I shall stop here. Read the SATIRE below and don't, I repeat DON'T laugh out aloud coz the Cyber Police might be gauging the intensity of your laughter to frame additional charges against Hassan.

TNB to sue WWF over Earth Hour

KUALA LUMPUR — Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB), Malaysia’s premier energy provider today announced that they were taking legal action against the World Wildlife Foundation (WWF) for organising the Earth Hour, a global movement that makes a stand against climate change by turning off all non-essential lights and electrical equipment for an hour every year.

In a Press conference, TNB president and CEO Dato’ Sri Che Khalib Mohd Noh said that the annual worldwide symbolic gesture, which this year would be observed this Saturday at 8.30pm, is nothing more than an ‘arrogant and thoughtless viral movement’ aimed to hurt power companies such as TNB.

CHE KHALIB: These people are inconsiderate. “Obviously these green-minded fellows think they’re really cute, organising such an irresponsible campaign,” said Che Khalib angrily. “They say ‘turn off your lights for an hour’ and people do. I bet that really makes them feel all powerful.

“What these western colonialists fail to grasp is how such drastic action affects the poor companies like us. One hour of unused electricity means an hour of wastage for TNB. Did you know that last year’s Earth Hour costed us millions in unrealised revenue?” asked Che Khalib, seething.

“How do you think that affected our production? We couldn’t exactly turn off our power plants just because a large number of Malaysians turn off their lights at the same time. So imagine all that wasted energy.

“This year, we expect even more people to fall for this global con-job,” added Che Khalib.

“So there’ll be more lights turned off. KL alone would be engulfed in darkness. Yes, sure, it may seem fun to some, running around in complete darkness. But that also means TNB would get less money. Tell me, what am I supposed to say to the kids of this electrical technician when we can’t give bonus this year?” asked Che Khalib, as he pointed to a TNB staff manning the lights for the Press conference.

He added, “In light of such inconsiderate actions by these tree huggers, TNB has no choice but to take legal action against the Earth Hour organisers, WWF. We’ll wait for our accountants to come back with the loss figure after this year’s Earth Hour, and we plan to sue them for that same amount. We may even add a hundred million ringgit or so, to teach them a lesson.”

Che Khalib also reminded Malaysians to ignore the Earth Hour, calling it a ‘cultural invasion, a concerted assault by extreme liberal forces aimed to destabilise poorer nations’.

“We are Malaysians, and we should be proud of our lights. Every night we should go out and see the beautiful sparkling lights in our city skylines. Don’t be ashamed of the lights,” said Che Khalib, as he unveiled a set of pictures showing the Petronas Twin Towers and the surrounding buildings consequently going dark during last year’s Earth Hour.

God knows how many people tripped over things and hurt themselves in the complete darkness, not to mention the number of bad people going around doing naughty things, knowing the authorities could not see them.

“Let’s reverse the order of these pictures this year, and fight for the rights to our lights,” continued Che Khalib. “Let’s unite as 1Malaysia, and tell these green terrorists that we will not go dark! We will not switch off! Let’s tell them that we love our lights!

“POWERRR… EXTREME!” he screamed, as powerful clusters of foglamps flooded the conference room with ultra-bright and hot light, temporarily blinding everyone present, and signalling the end of the Press conference.

p/s The above piece by Hassan Skodeng is a satire. If you don't know what satire is, please go HERE.

Thank You.

Looks like Skoedeng is poking fun more at Earthhour than TNB!

We have very shallow, superficial conceptions of what is justice, in our misguided attempt to demur to Pakatan's crying foul over our 'abuse of justice' and use of ISA etc.

Don't we have any balls?

Are we not, or should we not be loyal to what we think is just, in the eyes of God, and not what is just in the eyes of Pakatan.

First we set up Royal Commission to inquire into lobbying, which is legitimate activity, and then accuse our PM of undue influence, when it is well within his power to consider lobbying before his decisions.

And then we allow Pakatan to turn the TBH inquiry into a political circus, without resort to laws of subjudice.

An now we sue this Skoedeng guy over some alleged technicality.

We don't seem to have any capacity to reconceptualise the implementation of our laws without being subservient to PR's rhetoric and neo-conservative agenda to unseat our Islamic success story.

Did we have such problems during Dr Mahathir's time?
