SPR: Good morning, please have a sit. So you are here to hand in your nomination papers? You are not from the BN are you?
Oppo: No, I am not from BN? Why? Is this place for the BN only?
SPR: Do you know that this seat has never fallen to the opposition before?
Oppo: Is that so? I heard the last time around the majority was quite slim. I think I have a fair chance. Don't you think so?
SPR: Oh, you think so do you? It's quite difficult to beat the BN people la. The resources that they have will overwhelm you. You will suffocate. They, the BN people, didn't meet you for a discussion?
Oppo: A discussion? What discussion? Are we supposed to do that?
SPR: Oh, a friendly discussion between adults. You know have small talk, getting to know each other better and who knows discuss something that is mutually beneficial?
Oppo: Small talk? Something mutually beneficial? Er please, I am a little bit slow you know, what is it that could be so mutually beneficial?
SPR: Who knows, while getting to know each other, you could discuss something, what they say, win win?
Oppo: Win, win? I don't get you? You mean, I win, and they win? How could that be?
SPR: Well, let's say, while walking or when entering your car, you suddenly stumble upon a bundle of money that strangely no one lays claim to. The amount I heard is quite handsome. Let me rephrase that, very handsome, enough to make you decide why the hell should you go through so much hassle, headache, not to mention heartache, and in the end, lose?
Oppo: Could that happen? Could I suddenly stumble upon a bundle of money, or suddenly find a bundle in my car? Hmm, strange. I thought that only happens in movies?
SPR: Art imitates life. They get the ideas for movies from what happens in life. Who knows this could be your lucky day? I think, there is a good chance of this happening to you. If I am not mistaken I thought I saw bundle somewhere? Looks like quite a big bundle.
Oppo: Wow, a big bundle. Must be heavy?
SPR: From what I saw, I am sure it is very heavy.
Oppo: My late dad had made me promised, just before he died, not to take anything that is not mine. If I had not promised that to him, I would be tempted. What could I do, a promise is a promise, don't you agree? I am sure you yourself wouldn't go against a promise you made with your dying father, would you? Anyway, my papers are all ready, I can't possibly back out could I?
SPR: Oh, I think that could be arranged? You could suddenly or accidentally add some extra numbers to your address or change some letters to your name or maybe even smudge your papers with ink, or the classic, fail to produce your IC? I would recommend the last one. Works all the time.
Oppo: Hmm, interesting. You seem to be very enthusiastic, I sense more then just one bundle is is at stake here?
SPR: Oh, during election times, there are so many bundles. Some do get misplaced you know but I can assure you that the other bundle is not as big and heavy as the want that you are about to stumble upon.
Oppo: I think I'll stick with the original plan.
SPR: What a pity, you've come to the end of the rainbow and chose to give that pot of gold a miss.
Oppo: Yeah, what a pity. Shouldn't have made the deal with my father. I wonder why my father made me promise him that? He has always been a righteous man you know? I think he was trying to tell me that it is wrong to take something that doesn't belong to me. Can you please go through my papers then? I am sure you will find everything in order.
SPR: Okay, let me have them. Hmm, everything seems to be in order. Okay, thank you mister righteous. Sure you want to leave the rainbow? Oh, by the way, after this you could still decide to pull out. Maybe ill-health? If it was disillusionment with your party, the bundle could be bigger you know. Maybe even double. I could give them your number?
Oppo: Thanks but no thanks. See you on election day.
BN: He agreed?
SPR: Nope, he is sticking.
BN: Anything not right with his papers? A missing comma, an undotted 'i'?
