KUALA LUMPUR (World ASS' Press) - Malaysian cinemas have found a powerful new weapon in their fight against movie pirates, military-style night-vision goggles.

After showing people to their seats, trained ushers are strapping on goggles and scanning darkened cinemas to spot anyone making illegal copies of movies with hand-held recorders.

When caught they are taken from the cinema and made to walk the plank, just like in the good old days when you could do stuff to people, because life was cheap and no one said anything, in case it was them next.

Malaysia is on the U.S. watch list for movie and software piracy, but local authorities have launched a major crackdown since the country began trade talks with the United States a year ago and realised that they can make more profit, suckling at the proverbial teat of the bloated cash haemorrhaging US economy than by illegally pirating American wares.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
