t Double Yellow's Musings: I Support Terrorism?

I Support Terrorism?

I thought that only the local media could humor me. But unlike most other things, they cannot claim to have monopoly over this. For I have just come to know that the white elephant incident at Buangkok station “caused a terrorist scare”!!!!!!!!!!

I don’t remember a single news report that spoke about the white elephant episode as a terrorist incident. And I am “cheering [the elephant picture’s] existence”?? Is this website trying to suggest that I support terrorist scares in Singapore?? I fell off my chair laughing because I re-read my post again and again and I make no mention of terrorism leh.

I think the Singapore media has met its match.

The post was put up by some dude called Jose Manuel Tesoro. He is a student at Harvard (dun pray pray noe) and has got some book prize this year also. And then I saw that he was a journalist and suddenly that explained everything :)

Wah lau steady boh ... u famous liao! Wahahahh.....

Erm btw regarding reports of a "999" call to police by some "concerned citizen" about the elephants, do you think that's something made up by the police as an excuse to "investigate"???

KNN so many double quotes there. Hahah!

So you don't support cardboard cut-out white elephants?

But that's exactly what your post describes. ;-)

Still, thanks, the "terrorism" fixed & deleted; I had been misled by a quote in some article. I forget how sensitive you folks in Singapore can be about official perceptions, so if you want me to delete the entire reference to Doubleyellow, I will.
