PUTRAJAYA: Today the Prime Minister’s personal physician announced that the PM was down with influenza contracted during yesterday’s crowded LRT ride to KL Sentral station.
“This strain of the common cold is often caught by politicians who arrange photo opportunities with common people for publicity purposes,” said Dr Mohd Bakar in a statement, “his immunity system was already weakened after his flood water E. Coli infection so it didn’t take much to bring him down again.”
“I advised the PM to take plenty of rest before seeking follow-up treatment in Switzerland next week. A little fresh air filtered through the cabin of a private jet will do him a world of good!”
A source close to the PM overheard him saying, “Now, I am also a victim of Malaysia’s public transport system!”
