About Us

Welcome to The Tapir Times!  The Tapir Times is the latest in Malaysia’s rich history of producing satirical newspapers based on two-toned herbivores, the first being the short-lived Mouse-Deer Gazette, the only newspaper ever to be printed on banana leaf.  The Gazette was big in its day but folded after all copies in circulation were needed at lunchtime.

Today The Tapir Times remains a bastion of investigative journalism growing from its humble kopitiam beginnings into a media e-publishing super-powerhouse.

The Tapir Times is a silly work of satire and fiction.  If we fooled you for a few seconds we’re sorry, but this website shouldn’t be taken seriously by anyone.
