Datuk Najib was thinking about sending somebody into space. Three potential
can-or-nauts were called for an interview - one Indian, one Malay and one
Najib interviews the Indian first: 'So, Muthu, this is a dangerous mission.
How much do you think you should be paid?'
Muthu replied: 'Ten million ringgit.'
'Why so much?' asks Najib.
'Very dangerous mission, Datuk. Maybe no come back!' replied Muthu.
'That's understandable,' says Najib. 'Thank you..
Please ask the Malay guy to come here,'
So the Malay walks up, and is asked the same question.
'Alamak!...20 million, Datuk,' replied the Malay candidate.
'Twenty million? That's twice as much! Even the aneh before you asked for
only ten million.'
'You see, Datuk,' explains Mat, 'I have 4 wives and 15 children ... With 20
of us, it is a big family to support when I am gone...!'
'I see,' says D.Najib. 'Okay, can you ask that Chinese guy to come then?'
The Chinese guy comes in and Najib asks, 'Ah Chong, given this is a very
risky mission, how much do you want?'
Ah Chong thinks for a while, and says, '30 million.'
Najib appears shocked. 'What?!? 30 million!
Why so much?'
Ah Chong beckons Najib to come closer.
He quietly whispers into his ear,
'Datuk, you take 10 million, i take 10 million, and then use the extra ten
million, send that aneh to space lah!'
And...the Muthu was finally sent out to space....
And...the Muthu Sam y Vellu was finally sent out to space....
Samy: '...Bagi saya, ini semua adalah satu pembaziran atas duit rakyat.Kita sepatutnya tidak hantar mereka ke bulan, tapi hantar mereka pergi matahari. Barulah USA, Russia, respect sama kita....'
Penemuramah: Tapi Dato' Seri, matahari kan panas.. Macam mana mau pergi sana ?
Sam y: Cit! itu pasal la u tara jadi mintri. Saya suda lebey 30 tahun jadi mintri, saya musti ada jalan penyelesaian. Kita jangan pergi siang, manyak panas. kita pigi malam, baru ada sujuuuuuk......
