Someone moons on our picture and we want to send him to jail!
At one time Malaysians were using the newspapers to wipe the backsides with, and many of the papers must have had pictures of our leaders on them.
That is what mooning is worth - it is just toilet paper! But no, our egos get in the way, and we must exact revenge!
If someone moons in your face, however, there are some things you could do.
You could enjoy the show and applaud if you like. Or you could just kick him on the you know where. What an appropriate platform for just that, don't you think?
When someone says something about our set of beliefs, we get all self-righteous and hot under the collar, ready to go for the fellow's head!
This is a little silly and of course quite unnecessary, really.
Now if the set of beliefs is about our god or religion, it gets even more silly and really unnecessary.
Imagine, the almighty is, well, ALMIGHTY!
He is also supposed to be all-knowing (omniscient if you like), ever-loving, ever-compassionate and ever-forgiving.
The almighty also says "thou shall not kill". I hope that is so, anyway!
Now, do you think or can you imagine that such a being will get all hot and insulted just because PUNY men say bad things about him?
Nah, being easily insulted is the folly of us PUNY men who deign that it is their duty to protect the ALMIGHTY. Isn't that such an insult to the latter?
Now imagine again a STRAPPING SIX-FOOTER father telling his SKINNY three-year young child to go kill someone to protect daddy's name!
What insult that is!
Don't you think daddy can fight his own battles?
