Singa Quits

Post by nakatago » Wed, 15 May 2013 3:27 pm

Google (or Bing) this: "I quit": Singa the Kindness mascot

Much lols (and lulz) to be had.

It's refreshing to see Singapore have a sense of humor.

Pure LOL moment. I must share this news around. Plenty of LOLs to be had, indeed.

I guess Singa finally realized that you cannot teach those who are not capable of learning due possibly in part to genetic engineering policies of the past like the O level parents & graduate mothers schemes. Made most of them good at math & science but the trade-offs were, for a lot of them, a total lack of social morals.

Self-deprecating, 'cute' humour. However he fails to stick it to the target audience who fail to get his message.

What a missed opportunity.

Hmmm...so do you reckon there is a parallel between here and the mountain people in the Appalachians? I guess there's got to be...

Yep, I sure do, Brah, with the exception of they were genetically born with one leg shorter than the other so they could stand up on the side of the mountain. But they could only walk one way around the mountain and still be upright. Put 'em on flat land and they will walk in circles. How do I know? My Mom's from the coal mining camps of West 'by god' Virginia, which is pretty damn close to them Tennessee Hillbillies (no difference between 'em except they make better moonshine in Tennessee). :lol:

The beer's "singha."

I didn't know the lion was named 'singa.' I've always thought of him as Lord Cuddles McBumpyface Von Cartoonisburg the Third.

that's a cute name you have for the Singapore beloved lion, very creative of you!

anyway, just in case you don't know, 'singa' is malay word for lion.
