Comedy Amid Tragedy

                                                  The two mystery passengers

The mystery of flight MH370 grows deeper everyday as the disappearance of the plane has baffled experts. As sad as it is, there’s still elements of comedy in the whole episode. I mean what else can you call it when the Malaysians can't even tell for sure if the plane was northeast or west of the country when it disappeared?

However the biggest laugh I had was the 2 mystery passengers on MH370? 2 passengers on the flight were using stolen passports and Malaysian Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) director-general Datuk Azharuddin Abdul Razak had publicly said the two suspects looked like Italian footballer Mario Balotelli.

By now, it has been confirmed the 2 mystery passengers were asylum seekers trying to enter Germany and Denmark via China and had no terrorist links. The Malaysian authorities also released the photos of the 2 mystery passengers.

They should not have done that because it made them look like total idiots. Does Datuk Azharuddin even knows what Mario Balotelli looks like? Balotelli is a big, strong, black man with a mohawk. No offence to these 2 mystery passengers (who are probably dead) but big and strong are not how I would describe them. And don’t even get me started on the Mohawk!

In what world does these 2 look anywhere remotely like Mario Balotelli? In a sad episode like a missing plane, it’s good to know the Malaysians have not lost their sense of humor.
