Please be teached

In my country, the standard of English has been scrutinized, criticized and satirized by anyone and everyone who has some knowledge of the language. And in recent years, it has become something of a household factor that pageant organizers harp endlessly on, because nobody wants the world to think that Malaysians, or their pageant representatives, still speak gibberish (or live in trees).

So imagine my simultaneous surprise, horror and mirth when I saw this:

Yes, Miss Universe Malaysia 2012 Kimberley Leggett has teached for Malaysia.

Teached for Malaysia.


Dear Miss Universe Malaysia, if you would be so kind, please drown yourself now. Immediately. If not sooner. You are clearly not as relevant as you would like to think you are, because it is excruciatingly and hilariously obvious that, despite your big dreams, aspirations and contentions, you have not, in fact, been teached.

– edit –

This has since been submitted to and published here. It was too good not to submit and the Tyra GIF just kills it.

    Late to the party, but Kimberley Leggett did not tweet this. Yes she has access to the account, but so do other people. Having gone to primary and secondary school with her, there is no way that she would have made such a basic error. Kim completed English literature in IB at a higher level. Maybe you should do a little bit more research before telling someone to kill themself.

    Sorry if I ‘teached’ you a lesson.

      if you will read more closely, the Miss Universe Malaysia hyperlink leads to the organization’s website, not the girl herself. nowhere did i write that Kimberley Leggett tweeted this. anyone with half a brain knows that official Twitter accounts are not managed by the pageant girls themselves.
