No one can accuse Malaysians of dourness. On the contrary, they have an earthy sense of humour, judging from cartoons by professionals and amateurs, and by the great number of jokes that have circulated through email and through sms. Here is one I received through sms:
Einstein is known for his genius mind,
Newton is known for his extraordinary mind,
Bill Gates for a brilliant mind,
Dr. Mahathir as the master mind,
Abdullah Badawi? Never Mind,
Samy Vellu Hmmmm? ALL MINE,
"When she lifted her skirt up, I lost my MIND," said former Health Ministe, Dr Chua Soi Lek.
