The Idiocy in Quoting People

I was talking to a friend on one fine day over morning teh tarik, suddenly the boy next to me decides to jump and shout, lu pikir sendiri!

That’s coming from Nabil and that’s just plain stupid and rude.

First, who is Nabil? A comedian. What is his qualification? No idea. What is his achievement? Raja Lawak. What is he to the community? Source of entertainment.

Second, why use such a lowly quote? Is it entertaining? Is it fun? Is it catchy? Well, to some extend, it is. Personally it only signifies the inability to be original. If you’re not original, what’s the point of living?

Third, why not use other quotes? I guess it’s mainly not fun and catchy. But think about it, what do you want to portray yourself as? Someone intelligent? Someone funny? Someone that everyone likes? Pious?

Say for example, you engaged into a heated intellectual debate, and you ended your discussion with, ‘lu pikir sendiri’. Where does that leave you? Right, no where and intellectually lower.

So the next time you decide to talk or write, think carefully. A famous Dalai Lama quote, “We are what we think. With our thoughts, we make the world”

ps: I’m not just focusing on Nabil’s but every other that sounds stupid/rude.

  1. hahah whatever nabil punya catch phrase pun
    i personally think he’s really stupid
    i read somewhere dulu when the media made a big deal when he hugged his gf in public
    bole la plak when people questioned his behavior dia jwp something like “tak jejas ekonomi pun kalau dia peluk gf”
    i was like wtf la dia ni wei
    eh emo plak. haha

  2. sedih jugak kan kalo mcm ni.

  3. “Say for example, you engaged into a heated intellectual debate, and you ended your discussion with, ‘lu pikir sendiri’. Where does that leave you? Right, no where and intellectually lower.”

    haha.. I wonder if somebody could use this phrase during sidang parlimen= 😉

  4. exactly.. dah lama benci quote tu, tak kira orang tua ke budak ke sama je

  5. Love jokes but hate the quotes.

    * bengang bila budak2 asyik sebut2 quote tu *

  6. tak suka quote tu, rasa macam kurang ajar aje. tak sopan. yang hairan nya boleh jadi trademark pulak tu. boleh diguna pakai dalam industri hiburan kat sini. ntahapapantah.

  7. kene banyak belajar dengan Horitio beb kalau nak bertikam lidah. hehehehe.

    Bad Guy: “Prove it I’m a bad guy”

    Horitio: “I will…”

    Bam… enough like that.. short n sharp. but concequently… you already know the ending.

  8. Udah itu cite pasal Horatio, confirm la die yg betul. Hahaha

  9. hahahah i like it.

    EGO Horaitio. Walaupon berlagak tapi kebenaran terserlah. :p

  10. WELL SAID. I SECOND YOU! satu lagi quote kurang ajar to me “ada aku kisah” .. if guna dalam discussion, mmg nampak la org tu bodoh bahlul. sorry. kind of emo. sbb baru experienced benda nie tadi.. kena jawab org bengong macam bangang mengamalkan kebodohan meng-quote ppl nie. ;(

  11. Allah menampakkan seseorang itu bila dia cuba melakukan yang bukan dari jati dirinya. Bak pepatah kalau bodoh boleh diajar tp kalau kurang ajar sememangnya dia bodoh. Bodoh kerana tak mau belajar.

  12. sama la. naik menyampah..
    orang yang bodoh saja jadikan artis komidi mcm dia sebagai ikon. wth
