Groode groshe

The state of Malaysian English has dropped another notch:

Naturally, it's supposed to be "a 15% salary increase" in the cartoon*. And this is in a section of the newspaper which is supposed to be dedicated to promoting better standards of English. Pathetic.

*This, apparently, is fairly interchangable with "comic" - up to recently I always thought the latter was stuff on Saturday morning TV, and the latter was in the print media - PS, it's not "printed" media.
