The Power Of SMS

Pakatan Supporters Should Not Celebrate Just Yet

The BN will file an appeal with the Courts of Appeals tommorow and they will apply for a stay of execution. That means, Nizar may not be the MB anymore in the nxt 19 hours.

We must never forget that the same Federal Court five-member panel that overturned Zambery and his exco’s suspension, was headed by Tan Sri Alauddin Mohd Sheriff, the Appeals Court President.

There’s very little justice we can expect from our judges, the higher they go. And, just like the way Federal Court handled the Zambery + Exco’s suspension. Can we expect anything different from the Court of Appeals this time around?

I DON’T THINK SO. Our judges are appointed by a drunk lawyer who is stupid enough to have his boasting be recorded.

Then, what is so great about them?

Lastly, before anyone start calling me a Monkey’s uncle, u may want to investigate where the phrase comes from.

It is an idiom commonly used by Americans. A detailed explanation of the saying can be read here.

Allow me to quote the explanation:

I’ll be a Monkey’s Uncle.

Definition: Expression of disbelief.

Pig Players were certainly creative on this one. I particularly enjoyed rnf850’s story about stodgy Winston or Winny as he hated to be called and the story about the demise of Felix DeMont and his love for his only friend Albert the monkey submitted by warpt_princess brought a tear to my eye.

But the truth of the matter is that the origin of this phrase has more to do with scientific inquiry than with a monkey being part of the family. In 1871 Darwin published the Decent of Man outlining his theory of evolution, sparking controversy that continues today. It seems Darwin’s scribblings not only added yet another excuse to snipe and name call, but also contributed to our English lexicon. I’ll be a monkey’s uncle was originally a sarcastic remark made by non-believers of Darwinism.
