Kecik! 56

Ewwww, this one didn't work at all! And even if it did, the joke is so obscure it'll take an hour to explain.

The punchline, such as it is, lies in the fact that Yvy has put the jacket on Arianna backwards. In Malaysia, people often wander arounds with jackets on backwards since the only real reason to wear a jacket in the tropical heat is if you are getting on a scooter (the most popular mode of transport) and when Malaysians ride their scooters, the frequently wear their jackets backwards. The reason for this is very clever - with it on backwards, the headwind blows the jacket onto you instead of off you. Brilliant, really. Think about it for a moment.

Of course in Oz, someone with a jacket on backwards would look ridiculous (no matter how clever). Hence my unimpressed visage in the comic.

I remember many years ago seeing an Asian student at university with his jacket on backwards. It looked so weird it stuck in my mind. He was probably Malaysian (they may do this in other countries to, particularly nearby Indonesia. I don't know).

O the opening pic is a random result of putting the word 'hurricane.jpg' through Google Image. Hope it doesn't offend anyone.
