Stupidity Attracts More Stupidity

It is said that stupidity attracts more stupidity! 

Utusan Malaysia has quoted a dummkopf – Kepala Batas MP Reezal Merican Naina Merican – as lauding Deputy Finance Minister Ahmad Maslan's order to 35 GLCs to advertise more in UMNO newspapers. He maintained that this spending splurge will not be a loss-making move for GLCs to pump more advertising money into Utusan Malaysia as it will advance the use of Bahasa Malaysia as the national language! What the ...?!? 

Then he gave another point because he knew the argument didn’t hold water: "It's an unfortunate tragedy if GLCs don't understand and obey PM Najib, who has always lauded efforts to reinforce the bumiputera economy". WTF!?! 

And if you buy his absurd advice, it shows that you are just as cockamamie as this clod!

I have mentioned that November 08-09, 2013 was the Toastmasters' District 51’s Semi-Annual Convention. That explains why a spirited squadron of Sunway University Toastmasters went to Ipoh. Three reasons actually. 

Firstly, we were there to be acclaimed as a President’s Distinguished Club 2012-13 – it was even more extraordinary for us because this recognition was for a club in only its first year of existence! FYI, we were chartered on May 17, 2013. 

Secondly, we came to support Mirosha Somasundram as she was the flag-bearer of the Sunway University Toastmasters Club as well as representing Division B in the district-level Humorous Speech Contest. 

Thirdly, we were in Ipoh because I had wanted our young members to experience a district-level Toastmasters event – at least once. 

For me personally, there is a fourth reason. I was to publicly receive affirmation as a Distinguished Toastmaster. I guess you can say that it was a special moment for me! I had become a DTM five years on.

Check out photos of the said Toastmasters event on the first day:
