Syndicate behind obscene apparel smashed
Georgetown: The Home Ministry enforcement division yesterday smashed a syndicate which sold stickers and tee-shirts that carry messages promoting the use of marijuana and obscenity. Enforcement officers observed the activities in an apparel retail outlet in Bukit Jambul Complex for three days before raiding it.
They seized hats, tee-shirts, handkerchiefs, rings and chains featuring the marijuana plant. Enforcement chief Tengku Rosinah said the pictures and the obscenity were detrimental to the public because youths wearing apparel bearing such obscenities could be involved in immoral activities. (!!!)
Two saleswomen in the shop were brought in for questioning. Both may be charged under Section 8(1) of the Printing Presses and Publications Act 1984. If convicted, they are liable to a fine of up to RM20,000, three years jail or both.
Is the Home Ministry enforcement wankers so fooking free that all they have to do is harass some small-time business? C'mon, shops selling such t-shirts & merchandise has been around fer decades!!! Me should know as me was a regular customer of these shops of "ill repute" at Pertama in the 80s.
The list of social ills & various other problems are sooooo fooking long & yet our Home Ministry tries to play Moral Police by raiding a t-shirt shop. Seriously, fer fook's sake la. And who have they gotten to take the rap? Two unfortunate salesgirls.
As fer the statement "youths wearing these t-shirts may be involved in immoral activities", that really takes the fooking cake. So if some teenage gals wearing tudungs were caught in a sexually comprimising scenario, would you ban the headwear? Or how bout we ban senior male citizens from checking into hotels since Chua Soi Lek's behaviour would indicate that all old men are dirty old fooks out fer some quick relief? Fooking bodoh punya rationale la.
Yes, this is a rant about something quite minor (not quite FREE RAJA PETRA mode) but it just irritates the fook out of me when me sees shit like this.
And dear Tengku Rosinah, in case you are not aware, the pakalolo logo (and so what's the big fooking deal anyway?) is just a mouse click away along with a whole wide world of FREE FOOKING PORN (don't believe me, just ask Tuan Kerp) . . .
ps: In light of this news, it is appropriate that the 'Mandatory Listening' album (on left) is none other than Bob Marley's Catch A Fire. Wonder what he's smoking?
