Sights & Sounds of the Times! Pungent Stench: Been Caught Buttering)

Me thinks me has found the perfect soundtrack to accompany the utterly foul odours surrounding the nation's political landscape. Ladies & gentlemen, me is pleased to introduce (remind?) you to the joys of PUNGENT STENCH!!!!

This slice of Euro Death first saw the light of day in 1991 and the title 'Been Caught Buttering' is slang fer being caught in homosexual acts (as alluded by the album artwork featuring the severed heads locked in a kiss).

To download Pungent Stench's Been Caught Buttering (1991), please click:

As fer the upside down Jalur Gemilang above, its an initiative started by Kickdefella ( Peacefully register yer dissatisfaction & utter contempt fer the state of affairs by displaying an upside down flag (either in cyberspace or even physically!). Might me humbly request all bloggers who visit this site to take up this simplest of initiatives by displaying the upside down flag at your sites as well as urging all yer friends & colleagues to do the same.

First step towards change is by doing the simple things. This Merdeka, OPENLY (but peacefully) protest by sending out a message of distress via an upside down flag!

Spread the word & have a good weekend, people!

JOnC: Cheers mate!

It may not be much but its a small step towards mobilising people to show their unhappiness at the state of things.

ps: Pungent Stench ada cuba ah?

k_saegaran said...

Sorry dude. I can't bring myself to support this action. I think our beloved country has suffered enough and I don't want to add salt to injury. Sorry.

anfield devotee said...

Dear Segaran, you are most entitled to make up yer own mind on this. But please note that the upside down flag is NOT the same as descrating the flag.

It is the international sign of distress.

Still, the choice is your . . .

senorita.. said...

i know it's the international sign of distress but still think it will b more appropriate if it's the UMNO flag hung upside down.

no can do. sorry

anfield devotee said...

senorita: Then by all means hang the UMNO flag upside down.

Thanx fer comment!

AD: ME got no blog... so can't do that. if you have an underwear in that design, me would be more than happy to wear it. hehehehehehe

But that's a cool idea... its not about us being un-patriotic, its a symbol to reflect the true situation in Malaysia... ie everything is upside down.

anfield devotee said...

To everybody, please note that victims of Hurrican Katrina used an upside down USA flag to appeal fer help.

Like the initiator of this says on his blog, it is NOT meant to disprespect the flag or the country. But to show the distress taht all of us are feeling.

It is not political. It just the way things are right now.

achilles: You can always get them small flags you stick on the car & modify accordingly!
ps: Pungent Stench? Download?

Tinesh said...

I'm two minds about it. Still thinking lol.

anfield devotee said...

Tinesh: No rush. Many people have expressed their discomfort at this & hence me is actively seeking another symbol that would reflect out unhappiness without offending anyone's patriotic sensibilities.

Any suggestions?

ps: Tak try ke Pungent Stench?

Tinesh said...

The SOS flag? Lol..I duno any distress signals la..

Pungent Stench, havent heard of it, but will defs give it a try

Sorry that I do not share the sentiment with the upside down Malaysian flag. Furthermore, we're not in New Orleans nor its the OK Corral. Symbol or no symbol I would say the anything that disrespects a national flag has nothing to do with freedom of expression.

Nothing to do with being patriotic or un-patriotic but the flag is a symbol of statehood and amalgamation of all the races of Malaysia. To put it upside down means we're all to shits.

Sorry, I may be an astute liberal but a line has to be drawn.

anfield devotee said...

albertus: Point taken hence me has used Mob's Crib's design fer now.

Kerp & Senorita have suggested an upside down UMNO flag.

Akuani has posted an imbalanced dacing on her blog.

Any suggestions? A burning Barisan Najis flag?

theALBERTUS said...

A burning BN flag is fine by me so as long as the representation of statehood is not burnt as it shows that we do not respect the message the flag represents. The flag of the scale, which represents the BN is different. It represents a political group which we all do not represent but is an amalgamation of all things wrong with the country.

But not the national flag. Its our pride and our joy. If the Americans can die putting up the flag at Mt. Suribachi in Iwo Jima, we should all do the same to respect the jalur gemilang. This even though its not so gemilang right now.

On another note, Thailand has won its first Olympic gold and we still have our thumbs in our asses. I say politics out of national sports! The likes of KH and all should just focus their work on upkeeping their constituency and not play gatekeepers and protectors of our national sports federations.

What an insult. A Thai weightlifter winning the olympic gold, and worse yet, its a she. SO where did we go all wrong. I tell you most solemnly, its those bastards politicians that are not only ruining the country they are also runing the country's sports.

anfield devotee said...

Yo Albertus, point taken on the flag issue.

As fer sports, haven't you heard that sports is supposed to reflect the state of a society is in?
