A Malaysian tourist walks into a curio shop in Shah Alam.
Looking around at the exotica, he notices a very lifelike, life-sized bronze statue of a rat. It has no price tag, but is so striking he decides he must have it. He takes it to the owner:
"How much for the bronze rat?"
"Twelve ringit for the rat, one hundred ringgit for the Story,"says the owner.
The tourist gives the man twelve ringgit.
"I'll just take the rat, you can keep the story."
As he walks down the street carrying his bronze rat statue, he notices that a few real rats crawl out of the alleys and sewers. The rats begin following him down the street. This is disconcerting; he begins walking faster. But within a couple blocks, the herd of rats behind him grows to hundreds, and they begin squealing.
He begins to trot toward Sungai Selangor, looking around to see that the rats now numbered in the MILLIONS, and are still squealing and coming toward him faster and faster.
Concerned, even scared, he runs to the edge of Sungai Selangor and throws the bronze rat as far out into the river as he can. Amazingly, the millions of rats all jump into the river after the statue, and are all drowned.
The man walks back to the curio shop.
"Ah ha," says the owner, "You have come back for the Story?"
"No," says the man, "I came back to see if you have a statue of a Selangor politician in bronze!!"
