PKR - between PAS and DAP

Throughout history we have been blessed by idioms, such as:

(a) on the horns of a dilemma,

(b) between Scylla and Charybdis,

(c) between the devil and the deep blue sea, and

(d) between a rock and a hard place, 

... with each of course being most suitable for its particular time in history. For example, the version 'between Scylla and Charybdis' would make sense mainly to those schooled in the classics, whereas today the last of above idioms would strike a cord with the now-generation.

All more or less means having to choose between two evils, though some may argue there are subtle differences among them.

Today I read the Malay Mail Online's As PKR fails to pick sides, stalemate possible which reported (extracts):

KUALA LUMPUR, June 25 ― With PKR struggling to choose an alliance in the fallout between DAP and PAS, leaders keen on starting a new opposition coalition without the Islamist party now fear their plans may not materialise.

Conflicting remarks issued by PKR leaders since the crisis started earlier this month clearly show the party is now caught between a rock and a hard place ― severing ties with PAS could see PKR lose its rule in Selangor but staying friendly with the Islamist party would not bode well with its DAP allies.

“PKR's inability to decide on choosing between DAP and PAS is making any efforts to move on difficult.

“From their remarks, it seems like they can't make the hard choice of cutting ties with PAS, and this has upset plans to form a new party to replace PAS,” a PR source told Malay Mail Online.

I thought I was allowed polygamy

Note that our reporter uses 'between a rock and a hard place'.

But given our Malaysian interests in the salacious, for example, staring at a gymnast's physical profile rather than the gymnast's perfect performance, I wonder whether it's now time for another rising idiom, all of it 100% Malaysian Boleh-make, wakakaka. Okay, boys & girls & ulama, shut your eyes and close your ears, wakakaka.

Given that the weakest link PKR could not choose between the stronger PAS and DAP, the party members might appreciate the new idiom 'between pr*ck and *unt'.

And what is that last word? If you want to know, the answer is in my p

more than satay were burnt kau kau



  1. We have to understand one thing.PKR has no strong grassroots support.Without PAS going house to house canvassing for PKR in Malay areas,is like PKR missing one foot.Just imagine PKR,PAS and Umno going for three cornered fights in GE14th.Even in street protests needed PAS foot soldiers to provide security.

  2. The burnt satay is kerbau satay.
