Mather Lover (To the tune of 'Easy Lover')

I cannot believe how I spent April Fool's today: rubbing shoulders with rabid die-hard 'Mather Lovers'.

I mean no disrespect to The Old Man, but 'Mather' is two syllables instead of three and it reminds me of the 1984 Phil Collins / Phillip Baileys hit, 'Easy Lover'.

Easy lover

She'll get a hold on you believe it

Like no other

Before you know it you'll be on your knees

She's an easy lover

She'll take your heart but you wont feel it

She's like no other

And I'm just trying to make you see . . .

Which was how I roped in a classmate of mine Kojak to 'kidnap' a certain Ahmedinovich Kerpov for a function held at a small hotel in Pee Jay involving UmNo wanna-bees, has-beens, also-rans, sore losers -- and A Great New Hope in the form of a very bald but impressive down-to-earth MP from Jerlun.

On arrival
we found the entrance to the hotel already blocked, the car park bursting with late model Beemers, Mercys, Pajeros and a smattering of Wiras. OK, I lied. Some Kancils and Myvii's too. Most of them had the ubiquitous 'BN', 'UmNO', or 'Ansara' stickers on their windows - often sporting all three. For Race, God, and - lest we forget, also for You, Malaysia.

No worries. As AK is a person with limited abilities (I prefer this term over 'disability' since it brings all sorts of weird connotations), he conveniently whipped out a DISABLED sticker which I quickly slapped on my front windshield. The security guard was too-easily convinced by this slick piece of chicanery, what with the shiny yellow wheelchair displayed prominently in the back seat. Thus we were able to squeeze our ride near the lobby between Mather's Beemer and his recently elected son's Porsche Cayenne....

Since I brought my cam on this auspicious April Fool's day, I'll let the pictures do the talking.

AK (sitting) with a fan . . . and being mobbed (below)

To AK's left is Mat Salo's trusty sidekick, Kojak (in black), on secondment to AK for bodyguard duties. Whitney Houston not in picture.

Took me a while to realize who the lady in the electric blue dress was. When she took the mike to speak, she started her speech thus, "Saya tak suka cakap dibelakang dan saya juga tak suka main belakang"... I ain't kidding. She actually said that.

An altercation spearheaded by the people-friendly BN Gerak Gempur Youth. Some have also likened them to thugs. I dunno, you be the judge.They actually chased and assaulted a speaker from the floor for daring to suggest that DSAI be brought back into the fold... much to the horror of onlookers below . . . (the altercation I mean, not DSAI being brought back in - gotcha!)

Watch YouTube video of 'altercation' here: (Now don't you just luuurvvve UmNO?) Thanks, Pak Bubbles. Speaking one's mind in UmNO can certainly be hzardous to your health. I betcha the guy's gonna run cryin' to KeADILan. Bravo gangsters...

The Panel Beaters

What's with the Nehru suit, Tun? But you do look good in them I must admit.

A Very Skeptical Yang Mulia?

The Old Man leaving the scene of the crime after inciting a near revolt ... well, that's what it sounded like. Prodding present members to dare speak up and demand PL's resignation and other subversive innuendos . . . No wonder UmNO's Mat 'Prestation' Tyson (brought back from the living dead) had put 'blanket ban' for UmNO members from attending this heretical hearing.

Mat Salo, wht was the occasion? apa macam itu brader kerp boleh get so close? Not fair!

Salt N Turmeric said...

tokasid said...

Salam Pak MS:

A big thank you to you and Kojak for making Ahmed Kerpov's dream a reality. From now on he wouldn't mind if Arsenal bungkus or what.
Am sure Kerpov will mengigau about meeting Mather for a long time to come.

A friend told me last night about that mamat suggesting DSAI back into UMNO and he was dragged out from the hall. He knew that will happen but he still did it. Either he is very brave or he is really dumb.

Ummi Hafilda look chubby now. Hmmm....saya tak suka main belakan? Maybe she like main dari belakang kot.LOL!

Saleem was there too?I thought he went back to Ganu to pacify Derih!!

I need to know what was said by the 4 speakers(maybe voice or bigdog ada tulis kot).

Amacam Sabtu ni? Kayu curve?

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

for all the readers here, Mat Salo, the owner of this blog had the nerve to abuse the OKU-sticker and even after he dropped me off, the sticker's prominently displayed on his Stream's windshield.

but hey, you made it happen. you, Kojak. i owe you guys one.

shah, you missed the orgy.

farina, my wheelchair is similar to an all-access pass.


Cant thank you enough for that thoughtful suggestion. Kayu this saturday. Nasi Kandar all around!

wlll get back and start blog-hoppung again, once i'm back from another compulsory outing.


Pi Bani said...

Eh, nampak macam si Kerpov tarik TDM by force to bergambar dengan dia... fanatic betul le si Kerpov ni! Hehehe...

Anatoly Kerp dah jadi VIP eh? Nanti dia...next time i see him, i'll sit on him.

Seeing ur pics and reading ur commentary made me even more glad that Umno and BN lost badly in the GE2008.

Umno and Malaysia is not synonymous. Actually, as the elections have shown, Umno and Melayu is not synonymous either.

Dr M is up to some tricks plenty of things to hide in that swanky Nehru suit.

Pasal Ummi Hafilda yang hidung tak mancung pipi macam kereta sorong tu, well everybody knows about her modus operandi. Attention Atention Attention!

Maybe someone should do a reverse takeover on her. Then she'll stop talking about belakang n all. Lebih la pompuan ni.

Rita Ho said...

Now we know who is great company when in need of parking. Haha!

jaflam said...

Hai MS,
Good to see AK, you and bodyguard getting the close encounter with super M and others. The pics looks hot and rowdy, I guessed it's going to get hotter and rougher from now on.

The UmNO is very much divided and the political games going to heat up further, it will provide the avenue for Pakatan Rakyat to deliver their KPI's without much interference from UmNO and BN.

To all UmNO deck hand, time to batten down the hatch and secured loose items before the storms arrive.

Salam Abg Mat...
happy tengok AK tu tercapai hajat nak salam TDM...

patutlah, mcm kenal je the woman in blue tu...ish...blue sungguh dia ek? Hahahaha

Miss that day. So busy banget kat ofis nih!

Unknown said...

Is Mahathir that hardup that he has to have a known bitch to speak just to spice the atmosphere? Even before they get what they want they show they have no tolerance by dragging that poor fellow out. What if we bloggers were to make noise when they are in power? At least during AAB's reign no blogger is sent to ISA yet. Who knows with these arseholes they will have Operasi Rumput pulak.

What is happening in UMNO and directed at the PM is a typical National Geographic scenario.
When someone in the pack is hurt, two things happen.The pack leaves him and this is when the vultures and predators zoom in. They smell weakness and the alpha male leads the attack. The odour of blood is overpowering. The predators do
short shrift of the victim whilst the vultures patiently denude the bones. Like there is no honor amongst thieves. Old loyalties and pack ideologies evaporate into oblivion. The law of the jungle is harsh. If you are hurt, you cannot contribute to the pack thus you are useless. No quarters are given; second chances do not exist. Isn't this the scenario played out so publicly and blatantly?
My harshest rebuke to Pak Lah went something like this: "You may have awakened, but you have not got out of bed. Come to the window and shout for help." If Pak Lah failed, I put the blame on his Cabinet.Period. PM's case is what is commonly known as the Peter Principle. Incompetency rears like a sore thumb when we try to exceed our personal level of competency. As managers we promote a supervisor to manager position because he does work beyond the call of duty. When incompetence occur, only do we realise that he performs best as a supervisor and not as a manager.
So whoever is the manager that promoted that supervisor should also shoulder some blame for the incompetency exhibited. That, of course does not seem to be the case in the current brouhaha. My sympathy is with our incumbent PM. He needs all the support and help to see him thru this second term.

Only some decent UMNO people (and there are many)can address this. I hope they can stand up to be counted.

Is Kerp considered VIP now? ;)
Nice pics.Pardon the ignorance of one who has not been able to keep abreast with who's who in Malaysia - that woman in blue, siapa dia?
So blue is her suit that everything I saw after that was blue in colour (this must be what it feels like to see blue after viagra! :P)

Not relating to this post, thanks for organising that meet. Lovely to have met the bloggers who were present there. Special thanks to Galadriel for the ride.
