"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”"

"1. Never tell everything at once." - Ken Venturi, Ken Venturi's Two Great Rules of Life

***

Following up on a euphemism I just learnt ("没有人愿意吃我的豆腐 :("):

『来,吃我的豆腐』

"很久以后有一次,我和她吃自助餐,我们习惯互相交换菜吃。
那天她夹给我 一块豆腐,说:『来,吃我的豆腐』,
我看一看我的餐盘,只有香肠一 样肉类(切成片的),于是我夹一片香肠给她,
说:『来,吃我的香肠』 一秒钟后我还没想到是甚么事她就开始狂笑起来"

Unfortunately my research uncovered a lot of instances of this line, but no way to infer what it referred to.

Apparently it's very general and can refer to two sets of dual protrusions.

How sad - a good euphemism cannot be too general!
