the mrbrown show: early never say

native speaker

You did not inform us that you did not have a television set, so you have to pay the fine. - Media Development Authority Officer

This was the reply one guy got when he told the officer why he did not have a TV, which is why he did not pay his radio and TV licence fee, and which is why he did not deserve to be fined.

Sounds logical to us, what.

This mrbrown show is sponsored by, Singapore’s very own “School Reunions” site.

    Just encountered a similar case for parking near Albert Court. They charged overnite parking just after 10pm! When I questioned them, They asked me to read the term which is so small! :(

    Best thing is the attendent speaks in the same tone as the ‘authority’ in the podcast :))

  11. DOM the clown Says:

    To mystery:

    Is Mr Cheena Brown a comic strip character? Good grief!

    […] Pay StarHub for cable, you say? Then watch as they lament about increasing licensing costs for new programmes? Well, maybe I should try not paying the radio and TV licence. […]
