----------------------How to ask men to Jump from the Titanic --------------------------

The Titanic was sinking and there weren't enough lifeboats.

So, the captain had to persuade male passengers to jump into icy waters to make room for women and children.

  • To the British, he said: "You must act like gentlemen." They jumped.
  • To the Americans, he said: "You can be heroes." They complied.
  • To the Germans, he said: "It's the rule." They obeyed.
  • To the Japanese, he said: "It's the consensus." They obliged.
  • Then came the group of Singaporeans. And they just weren't budging until he came up with the appeal: "Free life jackets for those who jump!"
  • Then came a group of Malaysians. Before the captain could think of what to say, they yelled "Malaysia Boleh" and they jumped.
