'Tis the Season...
Was in the midst of teaching Chris (LeFort) Singlish - hey, if he can learn Chinese he can learn Singlish - with the aid of the Coxford Singlish Dictionary, when I ran into this.
A rather old format, but actually quite challenging. It's (quite obviously) a varient of the old whack-the-gofer games, but featuring good ol' JBJ (Joshua Benjamin Jeyeretnam, errant politician and father of a senior partner of the law firm I interned at last year) as the unfortunate gofer, and the player as the humble Singaporean citizen wielding the People's Action Party's logo and zapping him with the red lightning bolt that's (curiously enough) supposed to depict "action".
Mmmph. TalkingCock.com rocks, sometimes. Try it yourself! (Click the picture.)
JBJ is a lot more deft than one might have expected.
My first score was 9/25. The result:
"WALKOVER! You must try harder to be a good citizen."
Second score, 18/25:
"WALKOVER! You are a proud grassroots follower."
Third score, 23/25:
"WALKOVER! Would you like to run for MP?" The best part is that Minister Mentor Lee's face appears next to the score.
Talk about inane, addictive online games.
