the thing cannot be said
In an island somewhere in the Pacific, a mother and daughter were checking in at the immigration and had to go through the standard screening. Daughter: What are they doing, mum? Mum: They are checking for things? Daughter: What things mum? Mum: Hmmmm...that thing? Daughter: What is that thing? Mum: Officer, can you please tell my little girl what you are checking? Officer: Getting annoyed, 'We are checking for that thing lah!' Daughter: Getting a little frighten, 'Mum, I still do not know what is that thing?' Officer overheard and screamed: That thing is that thing. No one can say it. If you say that thing you will get into trouble with me. Mum: Alright girl. No more questions. Daughter: That thing, that thing, dunno what thing. Officer: If you say that thing once more I will lock you up. This kind of thing can only happen in some primitive little islands.
