The True Meaning of Guts

Once, during the gulf war, the President of USA, and the Prime Ministers of UK and Singapore were travelling on a war ship that was cruising near Saudi Arabia. The 3 were talking about how brave their soldiers were but their discussion soon turned into an argument where each wanted to prove the bravery of their own troops.

The President of USA said, "let me show you what is guts", whereupon he called his Colonel and ordered him "Jump into the sea and swim 3 times around this ship!". The Colonel replied "Anything for Uncle Sam, Sir!", jumped into the shark infested sea and swam 3 rounds with the sharks chasing him like mad! After the 3 successful rounds, the Colonel came up to the deck and said, "I did it for Uncle Sam, my President!". The proud President replied "That's what I call guts!"

The Prime Minister of UK was pissed. He called his 3-star General and said "General, jump into the sea and swim 10 rounds around this ship!". The General replied "Anything for the Queen, Sir!", jumped into the shark infested sea and swam 10 rounds with the sharks chasing him like hell! After the 10 successful rounds, the Colonel came up to the deck and said, "Long Live the Queen!". The proud PM replied "That's what I call guts!"

The Prime Minister of Singapore cannot tahan ("tolerate" in Singapore colloquial). He had to show that his soldiers have it too. So he called one of his Privates and said "Soldier, jump into the sea and swim 50 rounds".The Private replied "Ooi, you seow is it ? ("mad" in Hokkien) I just bought my Executive Condo and I am paying through my nose. You want me to jump and die or what? If you want to ya-ya (show off in Malay), you jump into the sea lah". The PM smiled and said "Now, that's what I call guts!"

Colt45,

We can’t compare the level of Singapore's development with any country in the gulf. Even Dubai is decades behind!
