Found this on a friend’s FB and it’s a really funny exchange! The funny part is the comments that follows the MP’s claim that his job is liken to be thankless like Jesus’s….other than the fact that he compares himself to Jesus, is he also trying to say that Singaporeans are like ungrateful Lepers??
“Lim Boon Heng: MP’s job can be thankless
Mr Lim Boon Heng, when introducing some new PAP candidates to the press, spoke on the thankless job of MPs: “When Jesus healed ten lepers, only one came back to thank him.”
That’s a great parable to tell. However, I am not sure if it works here.
> @oblige says: “Mr Lim, you got salary + pay rise. Jesus where got”
> @desmondkwan says: “I REALLY dun mind earning $1m a year and not get thanked. seriously”
> @davechau asks, “How much did Jesus charge those lepers?”
> @forceluke asks, “And what miracles hath thou done?”
> @Fumatic asks, “So how many lepers did Lim Boon Heng cure? And was he on foot or in a BMW?”
Perhaps Mr Lim Boon Heng should try some other parables next time.”
