Little Drummer Boy

On Christmas Eve, my friend posted this status message on Facebook:

First-World Christmas Eve Problems: Mother is frying rempah to cook curry and I can’t stop sneezing.

My response:

Come, they told me, pah rempah-pah-pah…

I thought it was hilarious so I liked my own comment. You can tell that I’m a very big fan of my own brand of humour.


Some years back, another friend blogged about a very hilarious piece of stand-up comedy by Irene Ang.

I can’t find the original post (I think it’s been taken down) but part of the routine was as follows:

…Irene Ang was the host and she played [Don’t Forget the Lyrics]. She asked what line followed these [lines] in the song “Little Drummer Boy”:

Come they told me
Pa rum pum pum pum
A new born king to see
Pa rum pum pum pum
Our finest gifts we bring
