Malaysiakini | 11 April 2009

This is the ultimate secret revealed by visiting Aussie bad breath specialist, Dr Geoffrey Speiser, 52, who flew in this week to inspect Malaysia’s and Asia’s first halitosis (bad breath) clinic at the Rafflesia Medical Centre (RMC) in Kota Kinabalu. The clinic which began operating in recent days has already screened its first 30 patients.

“The SsK12 would fire its own missiles at any bad breath bacteria that come towards it and destroy it,” explained Dr Speiser who is the owner of the only three other bad breath clinics in the world i.e. in Sydney and Melbourne in Australia and Manchester in England. “The SsK12 is able to control many opportunistic bacteria.”

SsK12 now commercially developed

“People who have SsK12 are lucky because not only they don’t have bad breath; they seldom become ill or suffer from mouth infections.”

Dr Speiser disclosed that SsK12 has now been commercially developed – BLIS K12 – i.e. probiotic (live) bacteria, in powder form and lozenges, which can be introduced into the mouth to protect against bad oral bacteria, prevent sore throat and fight bad breath.

It couldn't be the compulsive lying, nervous eye shifting and habitual twisting of words. After so many decades, we the public have become acclimatized and have long learnt to read between the lines - our heartfelt thanks to the BN-owned media, especially Utusan Malaysia, The Star, New Straits Times, and TV3.

Nor could it be due to mental and moral stagnation, which happens to people unused to thinking outside the business-as-usual box, and accustomed to being let off with no more than a benign rap on the knuckles - even when they've been caught with their pants down, hands stuck in the cookie jar like greedy little monkeys.

Now Dr Geoffrey Speiser has found a refreshing way to let our politicians off the hook. They were simply unfortunate to be born without the SsK12 bacterium wihout which their breath is bound to stink.

As a reward for having served the rakyat with such unflinching dedication and loyalty for nearly 60 years, the Umno/BN regime deserves an all-expenses paid vacation in Kota Kinabalu, so that they can all be given treatment at Dr Speiser's halitosis clinic.

I'm sure the rakyat will be happy to sponsor this no-more-bad-breath campaign as a gesture of appreciation and goodwill. It's awful to have to gag every time one of these Umno/BN politicians opens his or her big mouth.
