Use Your Hands Campaign

You know election fever is on when even the hearing impaired is roped into the political proselytising. The Singapore Association for the Deaf (SADeaf) has produced a series of general election-related sign language videos to help decipher the gobbledygook that will be spewed forth by politicians of various parties. The limited vocabulary include uniquely Singapore etymological gems like "Group Representation Constituencies", but not "gerrymandering" or "foreign talent". And the horrible person is signed off as a guy with tunnel-vision and a humongous ego. Surely the only key words in the American Sign Language (ASL) we need at the rallies are:

VOTE
Your vote is secret, don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
REMEMBER
Those promises to do better? You haven't forgotten, have you?
RETURN
As in return-our-cpf, not let those clowns come back to parliament again.
BREAKDOWN
Not restricted just to trains. Mobile network, internet access, floods, you name it, we've got it.
FOOD
We all have to eat, but please don't trade your vote for a packet of chicken rice.

RAISE HAND
All in favour of VTO, kee-chiu!

  1. Your caption was, by the way, hijacked by the humorous to refer to the way to avoid impregnating your partner. No doubt they will use whatever way to get an advantage. VTO, whether by speech or by sign language, is imperative.

  2. Lol...I saw the horrible hand sign as BIG HEADED Monster.

    Last GE they were slapped for not providing the blind ones , so this year must wayang properly. Pay civil servants so much also can't be bothered to do a first rate job, let alone first world voting.

    1. LKY handsign is See no evil, hear no evil leh.

      So does that mean every Contestant has a handsign too? Otherwise, they keep using the same handsign to nudge them to vote for his son, then how?

  3. If they ask for your VOTE, show them your middle finger.

    1. You should always be friendly with them on the surface if they come knocking on your door. Otherwise, they might keep a record of it and gerrymandered you away !!!

      Now, that is truly a belief that the PAP would ride on..
      .. never affirming or denying.

      And allowing it to permeate through the masses... to their advantage.

  5. FOOD for thought (or oops, shouldn't have said that), and mental BREAKDOWN... . ..from the mouth of your favourite Aristocrat:

    “GST hike is to help the poor.”
    “People support CPF cuts because there are no protest outside parliament.”
    "I’m going to spend all my time thinking what’s the right way to fix them"

    etc…Ad Hilares. Do you want to vote for this guy? RAISE HAND

  6. Wah, your hand sign for VOTE is very vulgar leh. Looks like the sign for fornication. Someone may lodge a police report and they send you to IMH then you know.

  7. 85% GRCs and 15% SMC.

    From which, 76 of the seats will come from GRCs and only 13 from SMCs.

    From the original 1 citizen 1 vote 1 representative , under PAP it became 1 citizen 1 vote 4-6 representatives. We should rename it to Harrymander in praise of the sg50 creation!

    Even a blatant malapportionment can be construed as minority affirmation and accepted by the educated daft. Tell me, how is that not an over-representation now?

    1. The real game changer is in the GRCs as the nor of seats matter most.

      Yee Jen Jong is the threat that was removed, and Lui tuck Yew was the weakest link to be protected. That's how you protect Aristocrat from losing, while still paying them millions to fail..I mean , win!

    2. Representatives choose voters, not voters choose representatives lah. Like going to McDonald you want only a cheese burger, but they insist you buy combo set that come with French fried, large soda, nuggets. So instead of 100 calories, you now force fed with 600 calories, in excess of 500 useless calories. Best thing is not to eat the unhealthy fast food. Go have a nice bak chor mee instead.

  8. How about a Use Your Brains campaign for a change?

  9. They should get a pig, print a PAP logo on it and say "vote" this animal. Simple, every one will know. As for the horrible person, add two wings to the pig, if pig can fly than it must be a genius with humongous talent.

    1. ASL for Pig:
      Put your hand under your chin, palm downwards, and flap your four fingers.
      No joking. So next time you meet any of these buggers, just do this.

      The limited vocabulary includes VOTE, AGAINST, OPPOSITION. If this is not politicisation of the SADeaf, what is?

    2. SAD!

  10. Wish voters will VOTE OUT CRONYISM AS IT IS THE PRIMARY CAUSE OF THE WOES THAT IS PLAGUING THE PEOPLE.

    CRONYISM IS THE CHIEF CAUSE OF 官僚作风(LEADER PATTING EACH OTHER), INEQUALITY AND OTHER ROTS IN OUR SOCIETY.

    THE SACKING OF ARISTOCRATS AND THEIR EUNUCHS WILL DO MUCH TO INSTILL PROPRIETY AND MORALITY TO SIN AND ITS CITIZENRY, LEADERS INCLUDED.
