Spaghetti

For several years, a man was having an affair with an Italian woman. One night, she confided in him that she was pregnant. Not wanting to ruin his reputation or his marriage, he paid her a large sum of money if she would go back to and secretly have the child. If she stayed in Italy to raise the child, he would provide child support until the kid reaches eighteen.

She agreed, but asked how he would know when the baby was born. To keep it discreet, he asked her to simply mail him a postcard with the words ‘spaghetti’ written on the back.

One day, about nine months later, he came home to his confused wife. “Honey”, she said. “Today you received a very strange postcard.”

‘Oh really? Let me see!’ he said. The wife gave it to him and watched as the husband read what is written as he turned white, then fainted. On the postcard was written the words ‘Spaghetti, spaghetti, spaghetti, two with meatballs, one without. Send extra sauce.’

Don’t Blame the People

Don’t blame the people. It’s not that people are not alarmed. It’s because they don’t trust you. Looking at the way you go about forming the back door government, your malfeasance gave you away. Your ministers caught Covid through call girls must be. That’s why we rely on the internet for more accurately information just when you, the government dispenses inaccurate statistics and makes double standard rules. These things you do in exchange for pocket money and popular votes. Look closely at yourself in the mirror. What did you do to individuals selling blessed water that is supposed to protect those who drink it from contacting Covid? What did you do to bikers still gathering in the open? Is the construction industry an essential? Are buffets essential each time the government servants attend seminars and talks? Other countries has gone ahead with vaccines. While you are still trying to pinpoint others when the fault is all yours. Does the rakyat have the right to relax interstate travelling or allowing foreigners to come in still? Are your enforcements still out there taking bribes rather than issuing fines and make arrrest? Can you remember how COVID started here? Did you make firm arrests and contact tracing straightaway? Were there rules to ensure factories comply with foreign workers lodging conditions?

If you can’t give up your dirty habits in a new world order, then I am sure you can handle a tongue sharper than mine.

And btw, don’t you think one mask is sufficient in between two people? In between waiters, service personnel’s and customers?
