An Interview With A Spanish Fly!

Published on 13 July 2021 at 12:30

Today we interview a Spanish fly! 


Interviewer (I): Good morning, Mr. Fly

 

Fly (F): Hola, buenos días.


I: Mr. Fly, you look different than I expected. 


F: Well that's because I'm a beetle. I have no idea why they call us Spanish flies instead of Spanish beetles. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spanish_fly

 

I: Mr. Fly, you have been trending in the news recently, thanks to a gaffe by our health minister, Mr. Baba. 


F: (giggling) Do you know what Baba means in Spanish?


I: (Googles 'Baba Spanish meaning' and laughs together with the fly) Nice one, Mr. Fly! 


F: Anyway, I choose to look at the positive side. Thanks to him, I now have thousands of new followers on Facebook, Instagram, and TikTok.


I: Your species was accused of the deaths of more than a million people. What do you have to say about that?


F: Fake news. We are peaceful creatures. "Make love, not war" is our motto.


I: I hope this incident did not tarnish your image of Malaysia. What do you think of our country?


F: I think it's pretty cool, despite the dimwitted ministers. There's even a radio station named after me! (Fly FM)


I: So what are your plans after this?


F: I plan to visit all 500 countries in the world. How about you?

 

I: Travelling is definitely out of the question for me as we are still under a never-ending lockdown. My immediate need is to visit the toilet — I drank too much warm water just now!
