will the blogger receiving rm100k a month please stand up?

Sometimes you can’t ignore the news, especially when the news is standing naked in front of you bouncing its ginormous titties and slapping its own fleshy ass singing a horribly off-rendition of ‘Ave Maria’. So much so that I created a new category for things that make me laugh, aptly titled ‘LMAO!’.

The ex-Menteri Besar of Selangor, currently the UMNO Information Chief Tan Sri Muhammad Muhd Taib was reported saying,

Pengendali dan penulis blog dibiaya organisasi luar negara hingga mencecah RM100,000 sebulan, kata Ketua Penerangan Umno, Tan Sri Muhammad Muhd Taib.

Beliau berkata, organisasi berkenaan menaja mereka dan membenarkan laman mereka menyiarkan pelbagai perkara sensitif oleh penulis blog tempatan dan luar negara.

“Kita tidak boleh memandang rendah kerana mereka ini golongan profesional dan kerajaan perlu kaedah khas untuk menangani masalah kemunculan laman blog yang menular seperti wabak penyakit,” katanya. [Berita Harian]

Bloggers are being funded by a foreign organisation for as much as RM100,000 a month, said Umno information chief Mat Taib.

He said the organisation sponsored these bloggers and allowed their websites to broadcast all manner of sensitive issues written by local and foreign bloggers.

“We cannot take this lightly as these bloggers comprise professionals, and the government needs a special mechanism to address the emergence of blogs, which are spreading like an epidemic,” he said. [English translation from]

Will the blogger(s) funded by a foreign organisation receiving more than RM100k a month (‘mencecah’ means over, kan?) please stand up? Just so you can tell us how you did it, and how we all can do the same. Saves me from slaving away in a 9-5.

Information chief mah… his information must be correct lor liddat…

Actually was going to write more on this, but then realised that I have better things to do, like work. Maybe that’s why I am not the one receiving the RM100k. Bummer of all damn bummers.
