Hairy Butter

I find a recent piece of news that Hollywood studio Warner Bros has filed a lawsuit against the maker of Bollywood film Hari Puttar awfully amusing. As a Harry Potter fan (not a great one, but still a fan), I too think "Harry Potter" has some influence on the title "Hari Puttar", although its Indian producers denied it completely.

On the other hand, in the wake of infants falling ill and dying after consuming toxic milk formula from China, I like to share a nice little story, Hairy Butter:

A long time ago in ancient Singapore, where the British once ruled.

One day, Ahmad came home from school and found hair in his butter. So, he ran to Ah Seng. "Seng, Seng, see, dun know why got hair in my butter."

Ah Seng was woke up from his afternoon nap, and reluctantly said, "How I know, let's go ask Adam lah!".

So, the two of them came to Adam's house and told him about the butter.

After listening to the story, Adam said, "I am the smartest in class. And, I think we should go ask the cow."

And the three came to the farm where the cow was. Adam went to the cow and asked, "tell us, cow, why is there hair in the butter?"

The cow replied, "moo...".

"Oh," Ah Seng said, "the cow says we should talk to the cat."

"Ah Seng's right," said Ahmad.

And so, the boys came to the cat, and asked, "tell us, cat, why is there hair in the butter?"

The cat replied, "meow...", wagged its tail and ran away.

"Why don't we ask the dog?" said Adam again.

"Let's go," said Ahmad.

So, they came to the dog and asked, "tell us, Bobby, why is there hair in the butter?"

Bobby lay still on the ground without moving.

"Bobby is sick," said Ah Seng.

"No, he is hungry," said Adam, as he patted Bobby.

Then, Bobby stood up and shook its head. And another hair fell onto the butter.

"Oh..." the boys said together, "it was Bobby."

Moral of the story: Eat clean, stay healthy.
