When you receive a slap on the face, stand up like a man should.
And if you also happen to be a Christian (no offence intended), better still offer the other cheek too. This way, you are sure to take the other guy by surprise and earn for yourself a measure of grudging respect.
It is not nice trying to save your face when it is obviously futile to do so, or to do so in a way that is clearly a little too thin and transparent. No?
Okay, maybe being a little more opaque may be okay. But only just maybe. But why risk your glowing reputation attempting a silly stunt that even a professional stuntman wouldn't have had attempted in the first place?
I don't want to add much to what Lim Guan Eng said. Like lawyers are fond of saying, res ipsa loquitur (the facts tend to speak for themselves)
Yes, why if there had been a personal threat to the Pm, why indeed did the authorities allow him to be on stage only to have himself pathetically and painfully embarrassed, not once but thrice, in front of all those ungrateful Penangites who despite Barisan's generosity in bringing in Psy, at a considerable and still mysterious and undisclosed cost, to horse around, could not even have the courtesy of playing along? Haha.
I could care less about Psy, but pink lips is none other than the country's首相 shouxiang, the country's prime minister.
To have the country's 首相's safety openly compromised on top of having him having himself publicly embarrassed is inexcusable. Haha again.
If really the Pm's safety was at risk, were the authorities not delinquent in their duty?
Or was yee sang to blame? Or Yen Yen? Ah, Yen Yen.
A slap is still a slap in Penang - yee sang or not!
