    Default Inappropriate joke, embarrassed nation

    http://www.heraldonline.com/2013/04/...ghs-in-us.html

    Do a search, it was reported in most if not all major press. While the joke did not originates from him, to have said it in front of the world surely is not appropriate.

    Extract:
    He drew laughs - and some groans - with his quips, including one about China's environmental problems.

    "Beijing residents joke that to get a free smoke all they have to do is open their windows!" Lee said.

    He then alluded to thousands of pig carcasses recently fished from Chinese rivers."

    (In) Shanghai, if you want some pork soup, you just turn on the tap," he said.His audience appeared doubtful if that was good taste, until he added, "That's their joke, not mine."

    I think he forgot that Singapore is affected by haze from Indonesia forcing us to smoke Gudang Garum and one of the sources of our water is from sewage water. Now isn't that embarrassing?
