Why they banned Chewing Gum in Singapore

Received this in the email today. Hope we don’t get banned or sued for sharing this. Hahaha. Wicked humour, and it’s quite a sensitive joke since it’s a “conversation” between Singaporean and Malaysian… so it’s kind of rude in a way. But please don’t take it to heart ya? Enjoy the merry weekends!! 😀


A Singaporean was on holiday in Malaysia…..having his coffee, croissants, bread, butter & jam at the hotel’s coffee house. A Malaysian man who was chewing gum, sat down next to him & started a casual conversation.

Malaysian:  ‘You Singaporeans eat the whole bread?’

Singaporean:  ‘Of course’

Malaysian:  ‘We don’t. In Malaysia , we only eat what’s inside. The crusts we collect in a container, recycle it, transform them into croissants & sell them across to Singapore .’

The Malaysian then had a smirk on his face while the Singaporean listened in silence.

Malaysian:  ‘Do you eat the jam with the bread?’

Singaporean:  ‘Of course’

Malaysian (chuckling):  ‘We don’t. In Malaysia , we eat fresh fruit for breakfast, then we put all the peels, seeds & other left-over in a container, recycle them, transform them into jam….. before we sell it across to Singapore .’

This time, the Singaporean retorted: ‘Do you have sex in Malaysia ?’

Malaysian:  ‘Why, of course we do’

Singaporean:  ‘Do you wear protection’

Malaysian: ‘Of course! We wear condoms.’

Singaporean:  ‘And what do you do with the condoms once you’ve used them?’

Malaysian: ‘Stupid question!!! Of course we throw them away.’

Singaporean: ‘We don’t. In Singapore, the government secretly puts them in a container, recycle them, melt them down into chewing gum & sell them across to Malaysia……. and that’s the real reason why we banned chewing gum in Singapore.’
