SHAMEABSOLUTELY FUCKING BRILLIANT #912
This, frankly, is never a good start:
“I decided to reach out to your Song by Toad first of all because I am a big fan of your site and secondly because I thought that this topic could capture the interest of your readers with something a little bit different but still related to your regular blog posts.”
Intriguing, don’t you think? Something a little different? Still related? Fuck it, count me in, I’m on board, let’s do it.
And what was this enigmatically different topic, this music-related-but-still-something-edgily-different subject in which this nice man thought I would be interested?
“The combination of relationships, dating, and sex combined with a breath mint should be something quite unique”
SEX COMBINED WITH BREATH MINTS? HOLY FUCK I’M ALL EARS!
Seriously, this is an entreaty for Singaporeans to fuck more. No, I mean it, that’s what it is. For those of you who don’t know Singapore, it is basically a totalitarian dictatorship (or at least, it was when I lived there back in 1989-90, so they may have loosened up a little since then) with the barest fig leaf of elections to give them a pretty flimsy veneer of democracy.
Social engineering is big there, and for years the government tried to keep the birth rate low by showing all sorts of ads for nothing in particular with idyllic Chinese families with two adorable children. Never Malay Singaporeans, always Chinese. Whether this was to keep the population stable on what is a very small island, or whether it was to emulate the low birthrate you tend to see in most First World countries I don’t know, but the message was pretty clear.
Apparently now they have changed their tune somewhat, and have presumably decided that they are in danger of running out of nice, perfect middle-class nuclear families, so the message has reversed. Now they want more children, and are having to try and reverse decades of contrary brainwashing.
So the message to be gleaned from this minty fresh video is simply, and awesomely this: FORNICATE, PEOPLE OF SINGAPORE, FORNICATE FOR ALL YOU ARE WORTH!
This is just…I mean…uh…wow.
