The remarks and accusations of some people REALLY boggles the mind!
I do not know whether I should be amused, horrified or simply plain baffled by the unjustified remarks and accusations made by this so-called Malaysian Linguistic expert, Ambi Mohan. Amir Muhammad, Malaysia's 'infmous' filmmaker because he made a docu-movie about an equally infamous communist, wrote about it in his column in News Straits Times here. Right now, all I know is that I simply want to point my magic wand and hex this linguist guy to kingdom come!
Yes, so it may be old news, last week's Thursday news but still, the ramifications of such a stupid accusation made by a supposedly educated person simply, simply boggles my mind!
Can you actually believe the things he said in the article? This, coming from a person who is supposedly to be the champion of linguists and English experts. Surely this idiot has some common sense that the word potter does not refer to a person who specialises in marijuana, like he claimed!
In fact, 'Potter' is actually quite a common British surname and Beatrix Potter, the acclaimed writer of the Peter Rabbit tales is one of the famous Potters in UK. And a 'Potter' is someone who is skilled i the craft of 'Potterry' and most definitely and incomprehensibly NOT about marijuana making!! No dictionary I have seen even remotely connect the word 'potter' with drug-making or other drug-related habits!
Get that fact into your head, Mr Mohan and learn NOT to make sweeping accusations and taking it literally that Harry Potter is a confused drug addict who has hallucinations about wizardry and magic! It's a darn good book and please, please stop making the rest of us intelligent, sane Malaysians look ridiculous because of stupid, insane Malaysians like YOU!!
