Joke of the Moment
I’m considering starting a quasi-regular blog post featuring random funny stuff I stumble on occassionally. For today, here’s something.
Someone posted this thread on Sammyboy.com Forum:
Singaporean cannot take jokes, I am moving to Canada
ON MONDAY, I was walking near Cavenagh Bridge, just outside the Asian Civilisations Museum in Empress Place, when a man asked me if I had spotted a snake in the vicinity.
Soon after, a “snake” fell on me from above. I was then informed that I had been filmed for the television series Just for Laughs, which features pranks played on ordinary people who are filmed by hidden cameras.
Although I requested that the crew not use the footage, they could not give me a definite “yes” for an answer.
Did it not occur to the producers that such a childish and senseless prank would compromise the safety and well-being of passers-by?
I was carrying a cup of hot tea and with the scare I lost my footing and almost slipped and scalded myself. I consider myself fortunate that I did not fall and suffer any injury as a result, and dread to imagine the consequences if such a prank had been pulled on someone with a weak heart or on an elderly person.
