    The jokes were reported in the New Straits Times. We wait to see whether CNA reports them

    [SIZE=3[COLOR="#FF0000"]]Singapore PM draws laughs in US speech[/SIZE]
    WASHINGTON: Singapore is well-known for its efficiency and order, but on a visit to Washington the city state’s prime minister displayed a less advertised attribute — humor.

    In an after-dinner speech to U.S. businessmen, Lee Hsien Loong made a couple of jokes that could pass for stand-up comedy.

    He drew laughs — and some groans — with his quips, including about China’s environmental problems.

    “Beijing residents joke that to get a free smoke all they have to do is open their windows!” Lee said.

    He then alluded to thousands of pig carcasses recently fished from Chinese rivers.

    “(In) Shanghai, if you want some pork soup, you just turn on the tap,” he said.

    His audience appeared doubtful if that was good taste, until he added: “That’s their joke, not mine!” --AP

    This is what happens when you have someone who is only good at studies and make him a leader of a country.

    I bet the jokes were scripted before hand and practised hard in front of a mirror to achieve some comic effect.

    Totally politically incorrect - much more by a country head.

    Is he angry with China? Politicians make jokes about themselves (to be seen as self effacing) or their opponents (to whack them).

    The last time when Singapore was at the receiving end of China's displeasure was when LHL visited Taiwan. Certain Singapore organized expo in Shanghai was cancelled by China in retaliation to this.

    I wonder if the capricious chinese netizens will play up this bad joke in their internet forums to vent their animosity towards us. I wonder which Singapore businesses will suffer because of this.

    His unscripted jokes are even more hilarious. Remember his comments on "Chillis and Onions" at the 1st Singapore Grand Prix?
    I believe the clip is still on You tube.

    Pinky to startled Yankee reporters:

    "In Sinkieland, we pay the Pee M as much as we pay a stand up comedian. That's not a joke, I am standing in front of you."
