The Sunday Times getting cheeky using suggestive journalism

Classic bait and switch.

In The Sunday Times recently, the front page showcased this awesome sexy athlete picture with a suggestive headline:
hardest-thing-in-sports

Wow wow wee wow so sexy!

 
 

And then the real article inside (a.k.a. anti-climax):
hardest-thing-in-sports-02

 
 

Your face when you see the actual article:
dozing-off
Why so grey and so many words?

Lee Kuan Yew’s daughter thinks men with long hair look sissy

Daughter of founder of modern Singapore judges people according to their follicular habits.

Lee Kuan Yew’s daughter, Lee Wei Ling, went on a rampage yet again in The Sunday Times on Sept. 2. Thankfully, her editor did a fine job cleaning up after her and the only upside is that it is less bad than the last time she regurgitated in the newspaper.

What you can take away from her article:

She lectures a mother about how to raise her son. When she has none of her own to speak of.

How mothers feel about Dr Lee’s advice^^

She thinks men with long hair look sissy. Regardless if they have a beard or moustache.

How men with long hair feel^^

Therefore, seeing Lee Wei Ling’s name appear in the byline every time…

Whoopee. A neurologist’s take on current affairs. I can’t express how excited I am to read her insightful analyses about stuff.

Last but not least…

For everyone who appreciates a nice hair cut and doesn’t like to be told what to do with the turf on their heads…

I don’t need a nice hair cut as validation… if my father is LEE KUAN YEW!!!

Strange musings by Lee Kuan Yew’s daughter.

Lee Wei Ling regurgitated again in The Sunday Times on Aug. 5, 2012.

Her thoughts this time were on frugality. And they were bound to elicit strong responses from her readers.

Here is a list, in order of what she wrote, and the emotions she elicits:

1. Lee Wei Ling started off by saying that she and her brothers are frugal because: “We had to turn off water taps completely.”

Really? I leave all my taps on when I go out of the house?

 

2. Lee Kuan Yew washes his own underwear whenever he goes overseas. Or his wife did it for him. To save money.

Lee Kuan Yew’s memoirs sure didn’t mention these vital facts…

 

3. In 2003, Lee Kuan Yew wanted his wife to mend the elastic band on his shorts even after his wife had suffered a stroke and had impaired vision.

That’s how the founder of modern Singapore saves 50 cents?

 

4. Lee Wei Ling intervenes and says that her secretary’s mother can sew very well and will ask her to mend the elastic band for Lee Kuan Yew.

^^How secretary feels when handed a pair of Lee Kuan Yew’s non-elastic shorts.

 

5. Lee Wei Ling says she has three Casio watches. And uses only one.

I guess I’m the only one then. Who wears three watches. At a time.

 

6. Lee Wei Ling only has two wrap-around skirts bought 20 years ago. Realising this, Ho Ching and some friends bought her 20 new skirts.

Oh! My! Girls shopping for girls!!!

 

7. Lee Wei Ling says she is training herself to be satisfied with necessities. By forgoing luxuries.

You can be frugal. But there is no reason not to groom yourself.
