Laughter, The Best Malaysian

Sunday, March 21, 2010

‘Laughter, the Best Malaysian’ is a compilation of jokes put together by David Tong, an avid joker and laugher himself. Spanning over two hundred pages, it contains hundreds of jokes, all of which are classified in their respective genres.

I saw this book recently while I was at a Popular bookstore, and decided to buy it – the cover looked attractive enough and after having a quick glance through the book, I found it rather interesting.

The jokes in this book have a distinctive Malaysian feel to it. Not surprising since the writer is a Malaysian himself. He didn’t write or come up with most of the jokes – the jokes were already there and all he did was compile them. As he said, it had been a long-time desire of his to come up with something like this.

After having read this book, I would reckon you guys should go get it. To begin with, the jokes are short, so it makes for a good read after a long and tiresome day – to unwind and relax. Besides, the jokes aren’t discriminative in any which way. There aren’t any racially, sexually or politically motivated jokes.

I must concede however, that at times, I couldn’t get the hang of the jokes. They were just above my understanding I guess. Then, of course, there were some jokes that were simply lame – lame to the maximum that is! But still, on the overall, it is a well put-together book with refreshing jokes.

Now, just to share a light moment with you guys, I have chosen a few of the jokes from the book. Read ’em, have a laugh (or cry!) and tell me how are they. If you are impressed, then the best would be to go and purchase the book and read the whole thing for yourself! 

Take two

Mui Mui: Ah Loke says I am pretty. Ah Toh says I am ugly. What do you think?

Ah Meng: A bit of both. I think you are pretty ugly!

Herd of Cows

“Look at that bunch of cows.”

“Not bunch-lah! Herd of cows.”

“Heard what?”

“Herd of cows.”

“Sure I’ve heard of cows.”

“No! A cow herd.”

“Why should I care what a cow heard? I’ve got no secrets from cows.”

Three-ring Circus

They say marriage is a three-ring circus:

1) Engagement Ring

2) Wedding Ring

3) Suffering


Boss: Why are you late for work?

Office assistant: I’m sorry boss. I tripped into a longkang and sprained my knee.

Boss: That’s a lame excuse!
