    I was there and the irony was not lost on me. We should be grateful I guess this would never have been allowed even a couple of years back. Keep up the good work.
    There’s a picture in milossadik.net in the “120mm b/w” gallery that you may find amusing! Taken on National Day.

    tks for a hilarious evening! Indignant? damn right

    Inspir3d, what has these stand up comedies got to do with serious Politics?

  3. inspir3d said

    Whybegay, i’ll leave that to you to decide

    The talkingcock website was so unbelievable I thought the publicised event was made up. Damn I was duped by their cunning! I thought a realist like you would be more realistic than an idealist like me, unless you are massively a hidden escapist?

    I asked the same question everytime the Parliament is in session. LOL.

    Basically its all about saying “it’s my party and I cry if I want to”. The child in the supermarket cries, shouts and misbehaves to make his parent look bad because he could not get what he wants, gays and funny bloggers alike.

    Don’t cry for me Argentina …

    I’ll do my crying in the rain.

    Sometimes, Ministers also cry.

    Crying is good. It cleanses the repressed emotions. Better cry than to develop pimples.

    We need to cry .. in fact must cry louder. PM should cry when he pleads us to have more babies. Yep, he should cry like a baby to have more impact.

    To be honest, humour is the number one weapon in societies where the government is all pervasive. Like in Turkey, Eygpt and Singapore. Laughing is quite hard to fight against. The Government shut down mr brown’s column, but they know they can’t shut him out of the blogsphere without an uproar.

  14. Jas said

    I seriously think that the Government is jealous that he make such good remix.They might think that what mr brown do is just for the sake of fun and stuff.But i seriously think that they are right.You “chop” seats, do you?Don’t tell me that PM LEE don’t speak all the “LAHs” and “LORs”.Trust me.He is also a Singaporean.

    pmg,

    Humour, jokes and laughter are the best medicine, for those who need it as a neural relaxant from mental distress.

    Humour is not a weapon. Humour and jokes pulls a person away from reality into illogic and insanity.

    Well, if a person goes into a “region of laughter and insanity”, he distants himself from people in the “region of reality and sanity”.

    It is analogical as a person throwing himself into a deep well and saying, “Ha! Jump down into the well and get me if you can”.

    Humour in this case is not a weapon, its a form of immature cowardice.

    How does one fight logically against illogic and insanity?

    Seriously, who would seriously take into account the words of such a person?

  16. anon said

    But, he’s a more privileged singaporean.

    I didn’t see so much meaning into the podcast!

    It was very funny …. I mean, I can’t stop myself from laughing. One would have to try very hard to do that, I think.

    Mr Brown is only an ordinary man, not even your intelligent singaporean type. Personally, I won’t waste so much time to try to uncover his evil inner intentions.

    No wonder ang mohs say we are uptight …

    Melissa,

    It is not good at all for a person to be simple minded when dealing with Politics.

  19. Melissa said

    Politics, the crux of it, is about mindshare.

    I prefer to have a simple mind that retains nothing.

    It’s a lifestyle choice.

  20. Kelvin Tan said

    Melissa,

    U mean the “ignorance is bliss” choice?

    Laughter can be cathartic – you laugh and you forget. But when you laugh, examine why you laugh. Is it because you’re uncomfortable? Maybe because you identify with it? Say for example, when you laugh at a parody lampooning the government, you begin to identify with the parody through laughter. And you laugh because it highlights the ludicrous aspects of what the government is saying.

    If we think that “serious politics” must be “serious” then we are seriously (no pun intended) brainwashed. Why play the government’s game on the government’s terms?

  22. Joey said

    I’m surprised you are even allowed to make such videos and not be arrested, bankrupted or exiled.

    It’s just a matter of time before you are. Nice knowing you all.
