Singaporeans point Defence Minister to other fault lines.


Singaporeans from all walks of life and with varying abilities to acronymise, said they are more afraid that FARTS, TURDS, FAPS and DICKS will cause disunity and Singapore to weaken.

This after Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen said DRUMS (Distortions, Rumours, Untruths, Misinformation and Smears) could spread far and wide from the Internet and even cause confusion and chaos in Singapore.

One Singaporean, Fang Cho Pi, said he was afraid of FARTS (Fraudulent Activities, Rumours Threats and Sedition) for a few reasons: “FARTS can come out of nowhere and engulf us, leading us to grasp for the truth.”

And if this was not bad enough, wait till we experience the follow-through that happens next.

Cho Ta Pian, a local, said FARTS might not be the end of it: “I am afraid of TURDS (Threats Untruths Rumours Distortions and Smears) as they might be hurled our way and it will be hard to clean up after that.”

And imagine if it all got worse.

Jin Tua Kee, said the most troubling aspect of all is when we have a full-frontal confrontation: “I am afraid we might just swallow DICKS (Disturbing Incriminations Crippling Knowledge Systems) whole without questioning.”

Acronym 101
