Did you see some Oscar Wilde in "me"?

It's goode to see some Wildeness around in this world of either political correctness or Kampung Wira jungle politikus scurrying for cover out there. Often when one uses wit and sarcasmin local English writing, it's like throwing pearls at swine, that's Desi' honest opinion, okay! And I don't seek your nod of APproval to say this because if you feel the Pedasness, feel free to move out of Negri Sembilan to Tanjung Rambutan!

In Malaysia, I'm sorry to report people don't know the fine art of poltical barb-trading. They only rade in billion-dollar APs and under-the-skirt banality -- sex with a 15-year-olde gali melacot, anywan? Then jail the messenger for the expose/exposure?

Malaysian voters are well served by several ministers whose brains dwell not northwards but tending towards the south near an orifice where the sun don't shine (Think the big mouth who asked "What crisis. Our judi-sirree in crisis?" And at the bighearted councillors and cronies serving r(l)oyal interests, Zakaria the gate-keeper-tunred millionaire and advertising his palace of four storeys as "small") .

Digressing a byte, which is growing to be Desi's passion to get away from the madding crowd, sorry I go literature path eh! -- And if you any reader not so esteemed wanna be English sexpertic todie and ars' why not "the Sun doesn't shine?", who do I ask? Anyway, I guess it does ot matter as even if you took a poll of the 219 Members of Parliament, "Have you read Animal Farm?", it would bring much delight if 10% h=gave an honest "Yes"answer. You further ask if they heard the quote well promoted by former PM Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad -- "There is something rotten in the House of Denmark", less than 10% would understand where it came from,what more its meaning and context, despite gallant efforts by many Bloggers to educate them.

It's a sad thing, a tragedy indeed, the state of affairs of politikus in NegaraKu -- or is it a comedy like some MSM glorifying Zakaria Mad Deros' multi-million ringgit mansionable hosting of a grand celebration of Hari Raya with orphans, wow! how considerate and generous? BUT not making a sound about the illegal structure and where the blardy hell millions came from?

Now, where'sDesi headed this moUrn? To one field where most of the political donkeys along Jalan Parlimen won't appreciate the musings or music of. For most of the two-legged resident periodically there often behaving less civilised than their four-legged cousins at Zoo Negara (minta maaf ia for this comparison) who feed on sick and banal jokes like their sisters and mothers suffering monthly "leaks" was great comedy when the subject was million-dollar cost-overruns in Government buildings that feature roofs and ceilings that crumble soon after their fanfare openings. And a RM4.6billion bail-out is euphemistically called a "soft loan". When then does it become a "hard" one? Ah, when they buy gold-laid coffins to bid premature goodbyes to more of these elected wakill rakyat?

Okay, sorry folks, for the wlong Intro todie -- now I tye by long-hand from page 12, theSun, appearing from behind the clouds after 4 (sie-lo!) days! (Cun'fess: Actually I bruffed as I googled later and reproduced the Reuters Original -- see the header is slightly different from that print copy which you cheapskates got a rlee kopi from at the SEVEN11 nearest you, yes?)



Oscar Wilde crowned king of the quips
Tue Oct 16, 2007 1:11am BST


LONDON (Reuters) - Playwright Oscar Wilde, who even managed to mutter on his death bed "Either those curtains go or I do", was named in a poll on Monday as Britain's greatest wit.

He captured 20 percent of the vote, just two points ahead of comedian Spike Milligan, who had engraved on his tombstone the epitaph "I told you I was ill".

In the Top 10 of famous wits, wartime leader Winston Churchill made it to number five for his notorious putdowns. When accused by Labour parliamentarian Bessie Braddock of being drunk, he said: "Bessie, you're ugly. And tomorrow morning I will be sober but you will still be ugly."

The playwright Noel Coward comes in at number seven, saying of humour: "Wit ought to be a glorious treat like caviar. Never spread it about like marmalade."

Former prime minister Margaret Thatcher, more renowned for her steely personality than her roustabout humour, was the highest ranked woman in the poll, taking 12th place. She once quipped: "Being powerful is like being a lady. If you have to tell people you are, you aren't."

The poll of 3,000 comedy fans was conducted to mark the launch of a new UKTV digital television channel called Dave under the banner "The home of witty banter".
