MDA acts to censor obscene cactus offline

Posted on 08 June 2013

Cactus causes MDA discomfort, makes them take offline action at Gardens By The Bay.

The Media Development Authority (whose acronym can mean Murder Decimate Arserape) is taking its Internet censorship one step further.

They are bringing their chainsaws to a few cacti residing at the flower dome at the Gardens By The Bay.

One spokesperson, who refused to be named, said: “There is no doubt this is obscene.”


And once they are done with this one, they will move on to cut off this other one:


Singaporeans from all walks of life have expressed their support for this move.

One Singaporean man, who declined to be named, said: “These cacti only puts unattainable standards in women’s minds.”

There has been no word from Free My Internet movement thus far.

    what about the obscene one at esplanade, especially at the angle where tall swissotel stands erect right between the two? shouldn’t that be taken down then?

    Poor plant.. Can’t they just remove one of the smaller cacti instead of removing everything??

    I don’t think this is funny at all. The strength of a nation comes from its citizens’ independent spirit and freedom of thought. If men think cacti in nature suggest “dirty” thoughts to women, they are too insecure in their own masculinity and have the dirty thought to begin with. This is also the most subtle gender discrimination – let’s keep our women folk safe from sex! When a state starts to control thought, let alone speech, and men start to control the thoughts of women, it is going down a dangerous path.

      The strength of a nation comes from its citizens’ ability to tell parody from real news. The end.
