This following joke is by an anonymous source. It’s really funny and makes a great tribute to our PM for his leadership as Singapore crosses her 44th year of independence.
The Prime Ministers from UK and Singapore and the President of USA, were traveling on a warship that was cruising near S.Arabia.
The 3 were talking about how brave their soldiers were when their cordial discussion soon turned into an argument where each wanted to prove the bravery of their own soldiers.
The President of USA said, “let me show u what is guts”, where upon he called his Colonel and said “Jump into the sea and swim 3 rounds around this ship!”.
The Colonel replied “Anything for Uncle Sam, Sir”, and jumped into the shark infested sea and swam 3 rounds around the ship, with the sharks chasing him like mad! After the successful 3 rounds, the Colonel came up to the deck and said, “I did it for Uncle Sam Mr. President!”.
The proud US President replied “That’s what I call guts!”.
The Prime Minister of UK became aggressive and quickly called his General and said “General, jump into the sea and swim 10 rounds around this ship!”.
The General replied “Anything for the Queen, Sir”, and jumped into the shark infested sea and swam 10 rounds around the ship, with the sharks chasing him frantically. After the successful 10 rounds the 3-star General came up to the deck and said, “Long Live the Queen!”.
The proud UK PM replied “That’s what I call guts!”
The Prime Minister of Singapore cannot control himself. He had to show that his soldiers have it too. He called one of his Private and said “Soldier, jump into the sea and swim 15 rounds around this ship!”
The Private replied “Oi, you siao (crazy) izzit?” I juz bought my 4-room and I am paying through my nose. Now, U want me to jump and die, eh? If u want to hao lian (show off), you jump into the sea yourself!
The Singapore PM smiled and said “Now, that’s what I call guts”.
