A new compensation scheme has been worked out for the blogger who has been successfully sued by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong for writing lengthy blog posts.

Another self-designated lawyer, who is not M Ravi, has worked out a payment scheme for the blogger to make compensation.

The lawyer, Kong Chee Kim, said: “Since Roy Ngerng has been ordered to pay $150,000 in damages, he has worked out a method to disburse the sum as monthly payouts of $50.”

“And this monthly payout will only start when PM Lee hits 65 years old, which is in two years’ time in 2017.”

“In the meantime, the blogger will pay an interest rate that is slightly lower than the annual inflation rate per year for holding on to the $150,000 sum until 2017.”

“But the blogger must also ensure that he is always holding on to $150,000 minimum sum and any payout will only be possible, if it is above this sum.”

“And when PM Lee hits 65, the age limit could be changed to 67.”

CPF blogger to star in reality TV series ‘So You Think You Can Blog And Get Sued?’

CPF blogger to star in reality TV series ‘So You Think You Can Blog And Get Sued?’

It takes a special kind of something to be able to do this consistently.

A Singaporean blogger who found fame in the midst of successfully getting sued for defamation is in talks to star in his very own reality TV series.

Called “So You Think You Can Blog And Get Sued?”, it will follow the lives of 10 wannabe bloggers who take advice from the CPF blogger.

Throughout the season, they will learn how to write defamatory blog posts and put them online, all in the hopes it will lead to someone who was defamed along the way to sue them.

The eventual winner will be judged by how many lawsuits he or she accumulates.

As talks for the show’s development are still underway, the show’s producer, who agreed to speak on condition of anonymity, said: “The CPF blogger would mentor young bloggers to put together information in a defamatory way.”

“One of the tasks is to write a very long incoherent blog post about a given topic, but somehow still managing to sneak in PM Lee’s name and allude to a criminal case in Singapore that is pending.”

“Extra points will be awarded for contestants who manage to get fired from their day jobs while going through the season.”

One contestant, who cannot be named but gave her surname as Han, said: “I hope I can be taught how to do research using only Google. And making those tiny connections between nuggets of facts that are totally unrelated to appear like there is causality.”

“It takes a special kind of something to be able to do this day after day, even with the repercussions hanging over my head.”

Each week, the blogger who fails to elicit a response from those they defamed will be booted out of the show.

The eventual winner of the series will be taught a bonus course on how to raise funds from the public.

A new compensation scheme has been worked out for the blogger who is being sued by PM Lee for writing lengthy blog posts.

Another self-designated lawyer who is not M Ravi has worked out a payment scheme for the blogger to make compensation.

The lawyer, Kong Chee Kim, said: “Since Roy Ngerng has already offered to pay $5,000 in damages, he can state as a clause that he can only disburse the sum as monthly payouts of $50. And this monthly payout will only start when PM Lee hits 65 years old, which is in three years’ time in 2017.”

“In the meantime, the blogger will pay a 2.5% interest rate per year for holding on to the $5,000 sum until 2017.”

“But the blogger must also ensure that he is always holding on to $5,000 minimum sum and any payout will only be possible, if it is above this sum.”

“And when PM Lee hits 65, the age limit could be changed to 67.”

However, they react with indifference, citing “not important enough to get mad” as reason.

PM Lee engaging bloggers and some other people who doodle on his Facebook wall.

Two weeks ago, all hell broke loose in Singapore after some food bloggers were disinvited from Dîner en Blanc, a chi chi outdoor secret picnic originally conceived by cheese-eating surrender monkeys that was brought to our shores for the first time.

Bloggers who were cut from the invite list reacted with fury, calling for death and boycott of the event — but to no avail, because the event eventually went ahead without much incident.

And history appears to be repeating itself now, but with a twist.

This week, several other bloggers from the political blogging fraternity were told that they were disinvited to a Channel News Asia television forum starring Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, even though invites and attendance were firmed up weeks earlier.

No one, however, batted an eyelid. Or tried to get mad about being dropped.

According to a post by Ravi Philemon, a blogger who writes about politics and democracy and stuff and who lives like a legend, the apparent reason given by producers of CNA for rescinding the invitation to the political bloggers was that PM Lee had met enough bloggers and engaged in enough verbal intercourse with them already.

And therefore, the prime minister has accumulated enough XP (experience points) and he is on his quest for other XP to progress further in his role-playing game as the ruler of Singapore.

Although this explanation has gone down well with some, others have speculated that political bloggers don’t give two hoots or are very cool about being dumped, on their heads or otherwise, because they have always been mentally prepared to deal with setbacks in life. Such as being called up by the ISD, put away for good or be the last in line to successfully ballot for a HDB flat. Or ballot for one in Ulu Jurong.

Others have also gone on to suggest that the prime minister does not match up to tau huay, the local delicacy that tore a new one for Dîner en Blanc organisers and drew the ire of food scribes.

New Nation, a LOL political blog without much political content these days, has issued a one-liner statement stating why they are not mad about being dropped from CNA’s PM forum: “It is not as if we are going to meet Scarlett Johansson.”

Strong winds and lightning also expected on Thursday’s event – to wash out all manner of pretentiousness.

As Dîner en Blanc is most probably an outdoor event, with the organiser priding itself for stoically insisting on carrying on regardless of weather conditions, what better way to pamper participants’ senses than a tropical torrential downpour?

Several local food bloggers who have been disinvited to Dîner en Blanc — this Thursday’s chi chi picnic at a secret location that is most probably held outdoors — are going to demonstrate to the organisers that they are not meant to be trifled with.

The electronic food scribes are planning on seeding clouds in the sky to ensure that it culminates into a massive island-wide haul ass torrential downpour to wash out all manners of pretentiousness in the picnic.

Dîner en Blanc is an international affair started by the cheese-eating surrender monkeys two decades ago that glorifies upmarket chow while dressed in white and abiding by strict rules such as making participants wear white clothes, white underwear, white lip gloss and white nipple tape.

Tech savvy as they are, food bloggers currently running the Internet and social media sphere are going to use their unprecedented powers and influence to enlist the help of scores of Internet users to ensure a spectacular storm brews over the next few days.

One food blogger has already sent out a dozen alert messages to companies around the world that possess cloud-seeding technology to help bring a touch of Mother Nature to Thursday evening’s proceedings.

To increase greater rates of evaporation to seed even more clouds artificially, bloggers are boiling pots of water day and night for the next few days.

They are also encouraging people to tumble dry wet laundry with greater frequency and pointlessly washing clothes so that more water can be evaporated.

One blogger who refused to be named, said: “We aim to achieve nothing short of a flood.”

He also said: “What’s more, all good picnics should end with a wet T-shirt competition.”
