TV Smith's Dua Sen. The politically incorrect irregular columnist combines
his idiosyncratic observations and tangential commentary into a blog...
BLADI O BLADA
by TV Smith
Minister of Internet is being chastised
for using an improper word in a television broadcast. He used the word "bloody",
which in this case, is nothing more than an informal intensifier. What's a bloody
intensifier? It is a modifier that has little meaning except to intensify the
meaning it modifies. According to Wikipedia,
it is lower in intensity than f*ck but stronger than damn. Bloody
confusing, right? Let's look at some real world applications, Malaysian style:
Idiot - A driver other than oneself.
Usage: "That bladi idiot is
driving around with blinking hazard lights"
Hell! - An exclamation.
Usage: "Bladi hell! Pubs outside Bangsar stay
open way after 2"
Bugger - A friend, usually.
Usage: "Bladi bugger didn't even pay for
Slow - Anything above 90 minutes.
Usage: "That Hang Tuah movie so
bladi slow moving"
Shit! - Despair or fear.
Usage: "Bloody shit! I think I have hemorrhoids"
Swine - A dishonest shopkeeper.
Usage: "Bladi swine! The Bak Kut Teh
stall overcharged us"
Bladi Serious - Humourless.
Usage: "Either she didn't get the joke
or she is damn bladi serious"
Waste - Missed opportunity.
Usage: "Bloody waste. She's having her
Maly - Ah Beng's favourite drink.
Usage: "Waiter, give one Bladi Maly"
Jam - Severe traffic congestion.
Usage: "KL always bladi jam"
Bladi Balls - Cowardice.
Usage: "No bladi balls to face me in person"
In compiling the list, I consulted my dear friend and fellow blogger FireAngel,
the undisputed queen of cuss.
