MALAYSIA: Today the rakyat disillusioned by the failings of the government and its opposition, confessed to putting all their remaining hopes in the new Star Wars film.
“Between the PM’s scandals and the opposition’s squabbling, this is some rescue!” admitted one Malaysian, “sometimes I think, ‘who’s the more foolish; the fool, or the fool who follows him?’”
“So with our political outlook looking bleak, I booked 2 Star Wars IMAX tickets. I don’t want to miss a womp rat!”
“Help us JJ Abrams, you’re our only hope!”
Government sources have admitted they find the people’s lack of faith in UMNO disturbing.
