AWARE EGM aftermath - parodies (Hitler, Rambo)

AWARE Extraordinary General Meeting at Suntec City last Saturday (02/05) was surely an intense event. And the aftermath, intensely painful for some (read: the ousted self-claimed new guards of AWARE & their 'feminist mentor' Dr. Thio Su Mien) and hilarious for others.

The latter refer to those who frequent YouTube & come across these 2 parodies of AWARE EGM, "(Mild Version) 1st of May, what happened in AWARE one day before the EGM" & "The missing hour during the EGM of Aware 2009".

The screenshots of the 2 clips are shown below.

"(Mild Version) 1st of May, what happened in AWARE one day before the EGM"


"The missing hour during the EGM of Aware 2009"


Note that the first YouTube clip without doubt has Hitler acted as Dr. Thio Su Mien while the second parody has Rambo as Ms. Josie Lau (the ousted President of Aware).

It's good to know that sense of humour is still alive in Singapore (assuming the creative person(s) behind the clips are Singaporean(s) or Singapore-based). Even STOMP has picked up the video (the one with Rambo) in its article, "Exposed: The missing hour after Aware new exco received no-confidence vote". Which I guess it's a sign that the parodies are okay (to spread in the Net) & that ladies featured in the clips have the maturity to accept that as just harmless videos.

On a serious note, those who are curious about AWARE EGM, the news can be found here.
