Jakarta Post at its finest:

Wild bullet wound four in Medan's airport

JAKARTA (JP): Four people Friday posed minor wounds when fractures of a wild bullet hit parts of their bodies at Polonia airport in North Sumatra provincial capital of Medan after a police officer fired a pistol to the floor.

Fuck me.

Further, whoever is running the Sunday Post needs to be shot; that rag remains a sorry piece of shit, an exercise in mediocrity, amateurism and, at worst, corruption. Checkbook journalism anyone or are they simply sellouts or do we give them the benefit of the doubt and label them incompetent?

The only thing in the damn thing that is readable is Roy's Hair's regular column but even that was blighted by a piece of inept juxtaposing of articles. Mr Hair's fine piece on the Indonesian advertising industry was overshadowed by an enormous 'article' (I use the word in the loosest possible sense) on burger king above.

Now, this purported article was simply an advertisement itself that bore absolutely no resemblance to anything related to journalism. I don't have a copy of the thing as I am boycotting ever buying it until they start featuring investigative news, but it was full of the usual cliches and bollox no doubt supplied by BK PR Central. The sorry editor did not even have the courage to insert the word 'advertorial' above.

The headline for the 'article' says it all: 'Burger King: 'Flame Grilled Tastes Better''.
Shame on everyone involved.

Who is the editor there now anybody?

I have heard that one of those editors can be bought off. For a large slice of cake. Perhaps local sausage even. ;-)

Yeah that was Uncle Terry "Jakartass" Collins, The seven foot tall Brains from Thunderbirds lookalike. And then there's Dave Jardine still truckin' along. Go easy on him - he needs the money (almost at that live under a bridge phase).

Perhaps we could get his take on the great "Kami/Kita" debate, he couldn't make much more of a balls of it than Uncle Klaus or the Australian with the plaster on his neck to stop his head falling off.

I know that these guys are pretty harmless, but can't they get proper jobs bashing things or mending things? rather than a proof reading service?

An auto-word completing PDA. Good grief. What about an auto-punctuation completing PDA?

Anyway, it is only a matter of time before expatriate spellcheckers become redundant, given the advances in technology, including translation software. Might have to get a real job. Kuku canít keep servicing four wives forever ....

The hadith of the True Islamic sect currently operating out of Banten. The group that you requires you to bath naked in virgin coconut oil with other sect members? Nice one.

From The Post. Again. Or was it simply a Freudian slip on behalf of the 'victim':

Secretary to Cibalong district head Opin Herdiatna said that the total losses suffered by the residents reached at least Rp 966,000 million (US$109,772).

"We are now still inventing other damages," Opin was quoted by Antara News agency as saying.

Hmmmmm

After the 'bath' they have to pray naked to each of the four points of the compass, which represents the 40 days left to the end of the world.

Mind you they didn't mention which direction you had to pray if you joined with say 32 days to go before the end of the world ....
