MDA reviewing book due to title error

I quote the mypaper, ‘The Media Development Authority said it is reviewing a series of satirical short stories, poems and essays about life in Singapore because of a discrepancy in titles and not because of its contents.’

This is uniquely Singapore. It reminds of the guy who told everyone to stay 100m away from a hut that had a bomb inside but people inside the hut is okay because inside the hut is not violating the order to stay 100m away.

What the fuck kind of absolute moral wanker medieval busy-body is Singapore's Media Development Authority?

So what if the book's title is Singapore Sucks? By censoring, MDA proves the title to be true -- that Singapore does indeed suck...because there are a bunch of all-powerful motherfuckers who cannot leave well enough alone.

Fuck you MDA. Fuck you with a basket of rotting durians.

They will keep the durians for you when you next return to the island.

Talk shit anon. I go in and out of the island all the time and no one has offered me any durians.

Sometimes my feelings are so hurt, I begin to cry....booo hooo

True. But that was before your generosity and now they are reciprocating or else you will call them cheapskates.

The sg.gov are many things -- mostly unsavory -- but one thing I can tell you -- they are definitely not "cheapskates".

Redbean,
I now what you talk about. You are talking about kangaroo election whereby the Sissy, TonyTan, etc were themselves in the polling station where the law forbids irrelevant people around that area.

That is the most shameful thing ever occurs in Singapore.

Corrupted statesman go mee siam mai hum , and today still do the same.
