A mattress, pillow and common house lizard have come out to apologise to Minister of State for Manpower Teo Ser Luck for framing him in a bad light.

This after MOM issued a clarification saying the controversial comment about how foreign workers’ dormitory is comfy despite not having mattresses was not made by Teo.

This led to several different quarters coming forward to claim responsibility to completely absolve the minister of any wrongdoing or of committing any social faux pas.

One of those to apologise on behalf of Teo is the mattress, Tee Lam, which said: “I am sorry I caused the minister such distress. If I had not run away from the photo shoot, he would have been lying down on me.”

“The Minister of State for Manpower is faultless. Please stop blaming him. I take full responsibility.”

This led to more infighting as a pillow and common house lizard stepped up to the plate and claimed responsibility for the faux pas, while trying their best to distance Teo from the mess.

Bin Chng, the pillow, said: “It was my idea to have the Minister lie down and take the photo. Please don’t blame him.”

A common house lizard, Xian Tang, who was present when the photo was taken, has also claimed responsibility: “I should have warned him to stop, but I didn’t.”

At press time, the dormitory building and all the foreign workers living there have also come out to apologise to Teo Ser Luck, saying he can never be wrong.

Singapore has announced that cricket will be banned indefinitely from the island-state.

This after 13 foreign workers who were watching a televised cricket match between Bangladesh and West Indies on March 25 at a Kaki Bukit dormitory were arrested as they decided to fight instead.

The brawl occurred close to midnight and the men are believed to be from India and Bangladesh.

A Singapore authority interviewed said it is the government’s responsibility to ensure that cricket is banned as it can spark widespread unrest if left unchecked.

Lai Shio Pah, an authority, said: “It is imperative that the government act decisively by banning cricket completely.”

“In fact, the government should go one step further and ban both the cricket sport and cricket insect, as the word itself can cause men to go berserk.”

Two construction workers who were jailed last week for scaling tower cranes to protest their wages and poor living conditions are having their claims refuted by an independent international panel of experts on dormitory living, besides the Ministry of Manpower.

The Dormitory Investigators-Cum-Keepers (DICK), who are backing the MOM’s assertions that the workers made false claims, said Singapore should instead be applauded for providing world class dormitories that fuse Muji-style functionality with multi-purpose designs.

For example, the bed frame doubles up as a clothes rack, providing easy access and convenience.

The rice cooker and kettle are placed side by side so that the workers can eat rice and drink hot water at the same time.

To keep the workers on the their toes, the power socket is attached to the bed frame so that it is within stretching distance when they wake up in the morning.

For health reasons, the mosquito netting ensures that Aedes mosquitoes are safe from the dormitory inhabitants.

Plus, there is no place to put any additional belongings, such as luggage or miscellaneous items on cupboards, because it is assumed the China workers wouldn’t have any material possessions anyways.

The pail for washing and the detergent are put on the floor to demonstrate that security is high, as it will prove that no one will steal anything that is not worth anything.
