The BBC news website has a hilarious kicker to their S’pore-M’sia bridge story today.
The Malaysians are calling it the “scenic bridge”, but say if the Singaporeans want it to be straight and less scenic they will have to come back to the table and agree to replace the whole causeway with a single span.
One Malaysian politician told the Star newspaper that the shape of the bridge would be a reflection of relations between the two countries.
Singaporean sources told the BBC that this statement implies the Singaporeans are straight while the Malaysians are crooked.
It’s simple, but it’s the best thing I’ve read in weeks.
