Foreign workers rioted because they were feeling okay

Posted on 13 December 2013

An alternative explanation has emerged to shed light on last Sunday’s Little India riot.


Foreign workers were feeling okay when they rioted last Sunday.

This new theory has been put forth by many Singaporeans as they re-watched the footage of the riot and agreed with the government’s analysis that there is no such thing as unhappiness.

One Singaporean, Pah Kah Luan, said: “Look at that guy flipping the police car over. He is so happy with his employers, colleagues, society and his lot in life in general.”

“He is just expressing his joy.”

Another local, Fang Huo Shao, said: “Look at all the foreign workers throwing stuff. This is how they normally spend their free time and it is completely normal.”

“I’m sure foreign workers who have grievances will express them the same way Singaporeans do: Go online and bitch about it.”
