S’poreans declare day after National Day Rally 2016 a public holiday so PM Lee can rest

Posted on 22 August 2016

They were driven to declare a public holiday as a result of divine discontent.


Singaporeans from all walks of life, who constantly experience bouts of divine discontent, have declared the Monday after National Day Rally on Sunday, Aug. 21, 2016, a public holiday.

This after they saw Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong looking dehydrated and tired on television as he delivered his National Day Rally speech.

One Singaporean, Bu Man, said: “We must constantly strive to achieve more and to be never satisfied with our lot in life.”

“Looking at Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, I am sure he would have been more satisfied had he had more water and a chair to sit down on.”

“He sure was experiencing a lot of divine discontent there and then.”

“Therefore, the Monday after National Day Rally shall be a public holiday as Singaporeans demand Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong to get as much rest as he can.”

Other locals said there are many downsides to feeling tired and dehydrated.

Another local, Zhen Pi Juan, said: “If you are tired and dehydrated, how would you find the strength to even feel divine discontent?”

“Hence, public holidays are a good time to recover and take time out to recuperate and probably feel rejuvenated enough to have fresh bouts of divine discontent.”
