"Malaysia Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad and the Sultan of Johor are seen in a blue Proton Saga... "When asked whether there is any tension with the sultan, Dr Mahathir said: “No, I don’t see anything because I went to see him and he drove me to the airport. I don’t want to comment on the sultans because if I say anything that is not good then it’s not nice because he is the sultan”"

"If it weren't for Philo T. Farnsworth, inventor of television, we'd still be eating frozen radio dinners." - Johnny Carson

An earlier version of the following got reverted from Wikipedia's Jap article.

I have a feeling someone is going to revert it again so I'll archive it here.

"In Singapore<ref>Power up with Jap lunch, The New Paper, 18 May 2006</ref> and Hong Kong[http://www.cuhk.edu.hk/jas/deptinfo/deptinfo.htm], the term is used freely as a contraction of the adjective "Japanese".

The Australian news service Asia Pulse also uses the term<ref>Chinese Capital Inflow to Leave Taiwan Vulnerable: Jap Newspaper, Asia Pulse, 26 March 2008</ref>.

In Japan itself, most Japanese are apathetic about the term<ref>http://www.jref.com/nikkeiview/jap.shtml</ref>, and the domain JAP.COM used to be run by Japanese people<ref>http://web.archive.org/web/20061205235118/http://www.jap.com/index.html</ref>."
