The Man at the Warung
Indonesia's Most Ill-Informed Commentator

A rhino is coming from the US today, to breed with other rhinos, they tell us. Actually he's here to make a sex film with Maria Eva and Jusuf Kalla and [name deleted]. It's true that is, a friend of mine, Budi, told me that at the warung last night.

You know that Forestry Minister M.S. Kaban? He makes all of his clothes, he does. He's very talented. He weaves them out of wood. Makes his own shoes too, out of elephant skin.

Rice prices have been going up. Something to do with speculation and hoarding. Floods too, I've heard. My wife has other ideas. She thinks the price is up because of an Australian-American plot to put Indonesia in the corner. She should know. She's the president, she is.

“Ka'ban will symbolically receive the endangered animal in a handover ceremony from Los Angeles Zoo officials at the airport on Tuesday,” Forestry Ministry spokesman Masyhud told The Point.

Symbolically receive. Snigger.

Rhino coming to save species ...

We demand proof! Having said that, since the source is PS it must be impeccable!

This is a rip off of Viz Magazine's "The Man in the Pub : Britain's Most Ill Informed Columnist" - They print stuff like, " You know that Angelina Jolie? - Fridge full o spunk...nobody knows why".

Ok, I'm not afraid to say that I don't have a clue what this post about; is there a hidden message? I've read this riddle twice maybe thrice but no idea what PS is trying to say?
Someone please tell me, because I will not rest in peace until I know...

to explain this post will require high-level cultural-linguistic deconstruction by specialists in Indonesian culture and politics, contemporary british media discourse, and cross-cultural psychoanalysis.

at the end of it all, everything being explained in intricate detail, you will still not get it.

Kuku,

Are you saying that there is no hidden message in this post? OR is it too complicated for me to understand? You should try me...

...it means that reasonably informed people are constantly at wit's end tryng to understand why Dedi and Agus (from the local warung)are quoted in the local press, because this is what shapes public opinion in this beautiful yet disfunctional country...

i am saying neither! smile

perhaps Mr Piss would like to elaborate ... Naga has explained a little of the indonesian side of the equation, however the cultural and discursive references to the western/british side remain unanswered ...

There is no riddle it is all a conspiracy theory timed to coincide with the release of the latest Kennedy motorcade footage today.

It is simply smut, inferring that the forestry minister, the comparable M.S. Ka'ban, is going to be on the receiving end of a woolly rhino rogering.

The following found its way into a newspaper today. God know how, but it had little to do with me. I will testify to that if need be.

Sumatran rhino coming from U.S. to save species

A young, American-born Sumatran rhino named Andalas is on his way to the land of his ancestors in a bid to reproduce with two females of the same species (Dicerorhinus sumatrensis) at a sanctuary in southern Sumatra.

And it is Forestry Minister M.S. Ka'ban himself who will welcome the rhinoceros when it lands at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport here Tuesday.

“Ka'ban will symbolically receive the endangered animal in a handover ceremony from Los Angeles Zoo officials at the airport on Tuesday,” Forestry Ministry spokesman Masyhud said.

President SBY has damaged his knees in a freak smiling accident. When asked to comment he began to recite names and addresses of people who also use the stuff.
