Malaysian Astronauts – Hilarious!

American Spaceman is called Astronaut
Russian Spaceman is called Cosmonaut
Chinese Spaceman is called Taikonaut
Malaysian Spaceman??? – Can-or-naut

Dr. M was thinking about sending somebody into space. Three potential can-or-nauts were called for an interview – one Indian, one Malay and one Chinese.

Dr. M interviews the Indian first: “So, Muthu, this is a dangerous mission. How much do you think you should be paid?”

Muthu replied: “One million ringgit.”

“Why so much?” asks Dr. M.

“Very dangerous mission, Datuk. Maybe no come back!” replied Muthu.

“That’s understandable,” says Dr. M. “Thank you..

Please ask the Malay guy to come here,”

So the Malay walks up, and is asked the same question.

“Alamak!…2 million, Datuk,” replied the Malay candidate.

“Two million? That’s twice as much! Even the aneh before you asked for only one million.”

“You see, Datuk,” explains Mat, “I have 4 wives and 15 children … With 20 of us, it is a big family to support when I am gone…!”

“I see,” says Dr. M. “Okay, can you ask that Chinese guy to come then?”

The Chinese guy comes in and Dr. M asks, “Ah Chong, given this is a very risky mission, how much do you want?”

Ah Chong thinks for a while, and says, “3 million.”

Mahathir appears shocked. “What?!? 3 million!

“Why so much?”

Ah Chong beckons Dr. M to come closer. He quietly whispers into his ear, “Datuk, one million you keep, one million I keep, and then one more million to send that aneh into space lah!”
