The Boss is Back 10

With Annaatthe about to be released, a Malaysian politician claims a likeness to the SUPERSTAR! According to Baling MP Abdul Azeez bin Abdul Rahim his Indian constituents call him Padayappa, after Rajnikanth’s character who champions the cause of the poor and downtrodden in the film of the same name. He also took great pride in saying “I speak in fluent Tamil, which shows I not only accept the language but also keep it in high regard.” Sorry lah but I always thought the honorable member of parliament was a Tamil … you know what I mean … in ancestry, like he learnt it at home from Ammamma or more likely Appappa (judging from his proud colour, maybe even from his Appa?)! Anyhow, the point is that this analogy was thrown up in his self-defense after being angrily accused, perhaps unfairly, of insulting the Tamil language by the even more colorful Jelutong MP Sanisvara Nethaji Rayer s/o Rajaji Rayer … and it was all over an elephant! Here is the video!

What can I say … nampaknya –

Baling sama Jelutong berlawan

gajah pulak di tengah-tengah!

Antara Saudara Mara 12

Perjuangan

Gajah sama gajah lawan,
Sang Kancil mimpi perjuangan;
Gajah sama Gajah kawan,
dengan babi dan kambing, Kancil disertakan.

Pantun ‘pascha tradisi’ merujuk kepada bunga-bunga bahasa Melayu asli –
1. Gajah sama gajah berjuang, pelanduk mati di tengah-tengah
2. Bijak bagai Sang Kancil
