The World Anthem




or 'The Gripes of Wrath' (with due apologies to our friends down under).

by sirul azilah altantuya baginda (saab), donplaypuks® intrepid corresponent for administration and maintenance of francophile and enophile (*1) affairs in paris.

Hot on the heels of news of the successful signing of the $5 billion order for submarines between Malaysia and France, there emerged breaking news of further commercial joint-ventures between French and Malaysian parties.

The Duc de Scorpeneis, speaking fom his Chatuea D’if in the south of France, announced the incorporation of Wines Internationale Nouveau Organisma or WINO in off-shore Labuan, for a joint-venture with Glocal Malaysian entrepreneur, Latok Ali Baba Kian Tee, for the world-wide distribution of made-in-Malaysia world-class wines.

Saab was able to secure copies of WINO’s international catalogue at a secret exclusive wine-tasting cum french-cuisine (frog-legs, snails, force-fed enlarged goose liver and horse-steak) bash hosted by the Duc de Scorpeneis and the Duchess de Mercedes at Labuan’s premier 6-star hotel, the Palais du Monte Cristo.

We are proud to present below WINO’s 2008 magnificent range of wines from their “Boulanger Douxain de Malaise’ special collection or ‘The Baker’s Dozen from Malaysia’.

*STANDING OVATION! C'est tres bien mon ami!! Brilliant! I thought this was coming only on Friday ;) AH - must have been the election euphoria ;). Thank you very much for this marvellously executed piece...ah ...I can understand why you are in your profession. Such attention to details!!! C'est la vie!Think you should seriously consider printing your stuff. It is really in a class of its own.
* shudder shudder* my blog pales until it is bleached and sterilized at the thought of you O Great Master of Satire 'researching' my blog 'more thoroughly soon'. I am no where near your astounding abilities though I do covet it - ah they say confession is good for the soul!
Anyway, merci beaucoup for this simply divine post! *clap clap*

Danke schoen for the invitation to the premier screening/tasting of Wine, How Divine!
Am glad to be amongst the first to have a foretaste of this wonderful post!
Notice you timed it perfectly at 12midnight. Dare we hope for a sequel? Your third para has stimulated a sudden desire for foie gras...;)
Thanks and don't stop writing!!!

hi masterwordsmith

are you polylingual? french, german, english, malay - what else?

Ah Senor Donplaypuks

That is evidence of the power of your pen to elicit an outburst of 'european' expressions in response to your very witty post.

Sante! May I recommend for your cellar Shitteau dans La Brain 2008? A special vintage release for politicians whose terms have expired and yet live on in full misery. Only to be consumed during by-election defeats for its taste is bitter-sweet. Over consumption leads to moral decay. Drink at your own peril. Suitable for soulless freaks with no qualms about robbing the plebians to fatten their calves for yet another feast.

No offence meant about the foie gras. I did not know you are vegetarian. My apologies.

And now, *clink a Moet and Chandon toast to you in anticipation of what's coming up next Friday.....

Donplaypuks® said...

no. no offence taken.

i was born vegetarian, but have and do stray. but draw the line before frogs legs, pate foie gras, lala, deer, emu, tiger's p, bears paw, monkey's brain, drunken prawn, beef etc

sorry to be so boring!

Your wicked satires are getting better with time (like wine). Wow, the puns and jibes and ... the graphics!

Just watch your back! We don't want you disappearing like Bala and that Burmese Doctor.

Your guest count has certainly ticked up quite a bit!
