In a bid to help Singaporeans from all walks of life curb their enthusiasm for food, the health authorities are working hand-in-hand with the economics authorities to market inflation as a good thing.

A health authority spokesperson, Qu Jian Fei, said: “You see, alcohol prices go up, people drink less. Cigarette prices go up, people smoke less.”

“So when food prices go up, people eat less also. This will help them maintain their weight. Inflation is a good thing health-wise”

One local, Chi Dong Xi, said he agrees that, therefore, the sight of fat Singaporeans are a sign that things are not going so badly: “I like how in Singapore there is always a silver lining for everything.”

At press time, Singaporeans are suggesting lowering the salaries of Members of Parliament so that they do not attract opportunists to run for political office.
