I was a bit hesitant to post this joke, but Shahrizat has given me the encouragement since I am older than both Najib and her...
Shahrizat called Najib one day and said, "Jibby, I have a plan to win back our kampung folk for GE13!"
"Great Shari, but how?" asked Najib.
"We'll get some plain baju and slippers, like most kampung people wear, then stop at the National Feedlot Centre (NFC) in Gemas and pick up a nice-looking cow.
Then, we'll go to a nice old country kedai kopi and show them how much admiration and respect we have for the hard working people living there." So they did, and found just the place they were looking for in Gemas.
With the cow in tow, they walked inside and stepped up to the counter. The kedai kopi owner took a step back and said, "Hey! Aren't you Najib and Shahrizat?"
"Yes we are!" said Shahrizat, "And what a lovely town you have here. We were visiting the NFC and Jibby here suggested we stop and take in some local colour."
They ordered a round of teh tarik for the whole shop and started chatting up a storm with anyone who would listen.
A few minutes later, a grizzled old farmer came in, walked up to the cow, lifted up its tail, looked underneath, shrugged his shoulders and walked out.
A few moments later, in came another old farmer. He walked up to the cow, lifted up its tail, looked underneath, scratched his head and left the shop.
For the next hour, a dozen farmers came in, lifted the cow's tail, and left shaking their heads.
Finally, Shahrizat asked, "Why did all those old farmers come in and look under the cow's tail? Is it some sort of custom?"
"No, no," said the kedai kopi owner. "Someone's out there running around town, claiming there's a cow in here with two assholes!"
