"Do you feel tired? Chances are, you are overworked. Have a good laugh ..."

This forward was sent to me by a friend who felt I needed a good laugh to get out of feeling stressed. I guess it did work ...


For a couple years I've been blaming it on lack of sleep and too much pressure from my job, but now I found out the real reason: I'm tired because I'm overworked.

The population of the Malaysia is 23 million.
3 million are retired.
That leaves 20 million to do the work.

There are 7 million in school, which leaves 13 million to do the work.
Of this there are 5 million are employed by the federal government, they do no work.
Thus leaving 8 million others to do the work.

3.2 million are in the Armed Forces, which leaves 4.8 million to do the work.
Take from the total the 3.4 million people who work for State and City Governments and that leaves 1.4 million to do the work.

At any given time there are 188,000 people in hospitals, leaving 1,212,000 to do the work.

Now, there are 1,211,998 people in prisons including Anwar Ibrahim.

That leaves just two people to do the work. You and me.

And you're sitting at your computer reading jokes!!
