Simon Says...

TV3 had a brief coverage on the quarrel between Lim Kit Siang and Nazri in the parliament today. Nazri says, BN is going to win big. You may think he's bluffing but I know he knows something we don't. I got a feeling he and his gang have figured out a way how to win big in the next general election. I reckon that's why he and the gang are not all that excited about 40,000 people marching up the Istana Negara to hand in a memorandum to the agong even though the agong guy is out riding a horse in Terengganu.

Najib says BN can bring triple the size of the Saturday crowd. So he and his gang aren't all that excited about 40,000 people running up and down Jalan Pudu being chased by the cops in riot gear and water canon the size of a giant penis.

After the marching is done, people in high places are saying things that you and I should read between the line. This is the time people make a mistake of talking too much, just like the Zam guy but he's different. He doesn't speak English.

So far only the top guys are saying things. The guys in the lower rung ain't saying anything yet. They'll say something soon but so far they're playing which-way-the-wind-is-blowing. The president of the Backbenchers' club has said something but you can't take that Raja guy seriously. He is in the same category with the Kinabatangan and Gading clowns. They are the first class act, Laurel and Hardy. Just like Laurel and Hardy they never fail to keep me amused with their bucolic humor

The non-Malay ministers aren't saying anything yet. Maybe they've worked out a schedule among themselves who should say what and when so that this march by 40,000 strong rakyat in yellow can be exploited until the very eve of the General Election, a grim reminder to the kampong folks what a terrible traffic jam the march has caused and what a shame it has been for the country now that the whole world has put us in the same class as Myanmar and Pakistan. Ish ish ish ini bukan budaya kita, tuan puan sekalian, adik kakak, saudara-saudari sekelian. Ini budaya asing. Kita yang lemah lembut dengan adat ketimuran perlulah bertindak mengikut perlembagaan. Kita ada proses pengundian yang adil dan saksama. Ini telah diiktiraf oleh badan-badan pengundian dunia.
Simon says, take this kain batik and kain pelikat and basikal for your kids. Simon says don't listen to AlJazeera, they are liars just like CNN or BBC. Simon says listen to RTM 1, it's the best channel. It has won more awards than Hollywood will ever got. Ini saluran Infotainment anda. Zam says, I coined that word up myself, he...he...he...am I good or what. Simon says, DBP shut up! After that DBP has never been the same again. Some people said DBP has gone mad, running around in circle chanting, murtabakkan bahasa melayu, murtabakkan murtabakkan.

Simon is going to say a lot of things and the people are going to do exactly what Simon says. This is Simon country and Simon can do anything he wants and the people are going to watch in silence. Simon is gonna say, let's have a rally. Simon is gonna pay good money for you to go. Simon is gonna put you on an air-conditioned bus to get you there. Simon gonna feed you nice quality food to eat. Better food than what Zakaria Md Deros served at his open house where 60,000 people turned up to eat, drink and be merry. After that the people had a chance to tour his nice house which is bigger than MPSJ building. This is Simon's country. Simon has lots of money. Simon says, sit! You sit. Simon knows better; no money no talk. Got money let's walk.
This is Simon country. You do what Simon says. You don't do what Simon doesn't say. Simon doesn't say you can come together in a crowd of 40,000. You go against Simon you're gonna pay. Simon has been winning in all the general elections that Simon doesn't know how to lose in a game and since this is the way things are gonna be, someone else will have to do the losing and the dying.

DIM: That would be a make-believe Simon in a make-believe game. We're dealing with the real Simon in a real game. This Simon doesn't say, 'gotcha!' LOL.

Tokasid: Siamang. I haven't heard this word for a long time. We used to have semang in Trengganu. It's gula tarik with tepung, pink in color. We also have ssagong, grated coconut with sugar, rolled in a tube made of old newspapaper and wrapped by ribbons. Ooops, we're talking about Simon. Well O don't know who this Simon is but I know he's out there some because when things get hot on the street, someone has to go to jail.

Simon needs a punch in the face. You know when they decide to have their own gatherings, its the bus people who cringe. Why you ask? Simple. These people just order bus companies to provide buses to ferry the thousands of paid participants. A certain idiot would take charge of all expenses and it is this idiot, who turns out to be not idiotic, will conveniently forget to pay them and what can you say to the gomen?

Kata Tak Nak: I've enough experience dealing with these runners. You take the cash up front. No cash, no talk. The bus operators should know better that they are dealing with snakes of the highest order. No, don't take 50% down. You gotta ask for 400% and they'll bargain down to 300%. Remember, Simon has lots of money.

Boxxtomoi: That's a brilliant idea and it would have put the big guy in a difficult position. Kalau tangkap, the people are promoting batik, which is a subject dear to Allahyarham.

To everyone who came by this way for a visit, thank you for coming, folks! You have a nice day now, y'hear? And please stay sharp. Stay safe.

Master Bergen:

I this real game, the real Simon would still say - hahahahahaahahahha gotcha!

All because the followers of what Simon say still don't realize that their rights, or in this case their heads are being step on and they are being treated by Simon as beings who are incapable of using their mind and might to bring something call CHANGE.
