A mainlander, a Taiwanese, a Hongkie and a S’porean all sit on a chair with a nail pointed up.
The mainlander yells, then picks up the nail and tosses it away.
The Taiwanese says “ah a nail!” and puts it into his pocket because it might be useful later.
The Hongkie says “ah a nail!” and puts it into his pocket because he thinks he can sell it.
The S’porean just sits down right on top of it and stays there because he thinks that is the way the things are supposed to be.
And what does the Malaysian Chinese do? He puts it away, planning to put it on a chair that another M’sian, or a S’porean will sit on.
