Authorities to question S’poreans who queued for Free Cone Day but didn’t queue for lying in state

Posted on 15 April 2015

They will be asked where exactly their allegiance lies: Lee Kuan Yew or ice cream?


Thousands of Singaporeans are expected to be called in for questioning over the next few days.

This after it was reported that tens of thousands of Singaporeans from across the island stood in line for up to five hours for Free Cone Day on April 14, 2015, but did not queue up to pay respects at the lying in state a few weeks ago.

These Singaporeans suspected of prioritising ice cream above paying their last respects to Singapore’s founding father Lee Kuan Yew will be questioned by authorities about where exactly their allegiance lies.

One Singaporean, Chi Xue Gao, who is guilty of queuing up to four hours for a free cone of ice cream but overlooked going for the lying in state, said sheepishly: “I know it is traitorous to spend time queuing up for ice cream but not for the lying in state, therefore, I am willing to accept all forms of punishment dished out to me by the state.”

“I also understand that Free Cone Day wouldn’t have happened had it not been for the nation-building efforts of our founding father Lee Kuan Yew.”

“I solemnly urge my fellow Singaporeans who queued up for Free Cone Day but not the lying in state to turn ourselves in to the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau, where they have a new building to deal with people like us.”

“We are truly sorry.”


Shame on those who didn’t go for the lying in state:

Revoke S’porean citizenship of those who did not pay respects to Lee Kuan Yew

Time for S’pore to recognise Lee Kuan Yew as a religion

Silent Majority relieved they can go back into hiding now that 7-day Lee Kuan Yew mourning period is over
