Say Bung if Bigfoot's in Da House

Live telecast of proceedings in the Dewan Rakyat will continue despite the name calling and disorderly nature seen in the first 30 minutes of broadcast. Hooray, Jerry Springer style show finally comes to Malaysia!

Information Minister Ahmad Shabery Cheek said although the Cabinet was disappointed with the episode, it felt that it was too premature to stop the live telecast based on one incident - correction - several incidents. Of course, the ONE incident he referred to was the memorable name calling between Karpal Singh (from the white corner) and Bung Mokhtar (from the blue corner).

Karpal began proceedings by questioning certain technical points on the proceedings when he was distracted by Bung.

"I hope Bigfoot does not disrupt the proceedings," Karpal taunted. "Bigfoot, sit down!"

Then 'burly' Bung exploded into semi-intellectual mode, "I am bigfoot, you are big monkey."

This went on for a bit. The House Speaker was clearly no match for these playground antics, it took him several minutes to calm things down. I feel sorry for him, it is like being Jerry Springer without the security and show producer.

Even Pak Lah is worried...

Finally, he acknowledges the existence of Bigfoot and its disruptive forces on live TV...
