Brilliant Idea

Did you see this report in Page 4 of the Straits Times Today? Minister Lim Boon Heng has brilliant idea.

Now please turn to the obituaries page. There are 8 gentlemen whose ages were given. They are 53, 82, 83, 51, 77, 78, 64 and 74. The average … three score years plus 10.

If you are one of those Singaporeans who follow the ministers' advice blindly, and find that you do not make it beyond 3 scores plus 10, you know who to look for.

So instead of saying "Annuities are not well understood by most Singaporeans...", it would have been more politically correct for Mr Lim to say, "Annuities are not well received by most Singaporeans..." since most die at about age 70, way before 100 (the unrealistic age which he quoted as example).
