An old joke posted on multiply some time back. Funny still haha :P


Dato Seri Abdullah Badawi (Pak Lah) was about to send the first Malaysian rocket into space. Three potential astronauts were called for an interview - one Indian,one Malay and one Chinese.

Pak Lah interviews the Indian first: "So, Muthu, this is a dangerous mission...How much do you think you should be paid for it?"

Muthu thinks to himself and says, "One million ringgit."

"Why so much?" asks Pak Lah.

"Nowadays toddy very expensive, Dato..." replies Muthu.

"I see," says Pak Lah. "Thank you...please ask the Malay guy to come here"

So the Malay walks up, and is asked the same question.

"Uh...2 million boleh lah," replies the Malay applicant.

"Two million? That's a lot of money! Even the aneh (brother in tamil) before you only asked for one million!"

"You see, Dato," explains Mat. "I have 4 wives and 15 children... so 20 of us in the family, we need a lot of money to support ourselves..."

"I see," says Pak Lah. "Okay, can you ask the Chinese guy to come here now?"

The Chinese guy comes in and Pak Lah asks, "Ah Chong, this is a dangerous mission, how much do you think you should be paid?"

Ah Chong thinks for a while, and suddenly says, "3 million."

Pak Lah is shocked. What?!?!" 3 million? Why so much?!" Ah Chong beckons Pak Lah to come closer, and whispers...

"One million you keep, one million I keep, and then one more million to send the aneh into space!
