"An Ah Beng a day keeps the doctors away"

Title: Firing Squad
Date: 07-Jan-2008

During the Japanese Occupation, Ah Beng, Ah Lok and Ah Piow were caught for smuggling. They were sentenced to death by firing squad.

That night, Ah Beng  came up with a plan. He told the others that the Japanese were afraid of natural disasters. So he would cause them to panic, and escape in the confusion.

The next morning, Ah Lok was led to the wall. The firing squad was lined up and the Captain commanded, "Ready.. Aim..", but before he could complete, Ah Lok shouted, " Earthquake!! Earthquake!" The Japanese soldiers panicked and Ah Lok made his escape.

Later, the soldiers took Ah Piow  out and the firing squad were ready. The captain commanded, "Ready... Aim..." This time Ah Piow shouted. " Flood! Flood!!" Again, the Japanese soldiers panicked and this time, Ah Piow  made his escape.

Soon, it was Ah Beng's turn.  The soldiers lined up in front of him. The captain started, "Ready, Aim…..." Then Ah Beng, and shouted, " FIRE!!! FIRE!!! "  Guess what happened to Ah Beng ?
