A Malaysian man has been stabbed to death by customers at a karaoke bar for singing too much and refusing to share the microphone.Now this isn't the first time karaoke violence has broken out in Asia. (Yes, sadly, the term "karaoke violence" exists in our society.) Remember what happened in the Philippines last year?:
A district police official says witnesses saw a group of men punch and stab 23-year-old Abdul Sani Doli with a knife at the bar late Wednesday in eastern Sandakan town on Borneo island.
The official says a brawl broke out because the men were furious that Abdul Sani was hogging the stage. He says police detained two suspects after Abdul Sani was found dead outside the bar.
Romy Baligula, 29, was halfway through his song on Tuesday night in a bar in San Mateo town, east of Manila, when 43-year-old security guard Robilito Ortega yelled that he was out of tune.Did you see that part where it says, "Deaths and violence are not uncommon in Philippine karaoke bars?!" Jesus Christ!
As Baligula ignored his comments and continued singing, Ortega pulled out his revolver and shot him in the chest.
Senior Superintendent Felipe Rojas said Baligula died instantly....
Deaths and violence are not uncommon in Philippine karaoke bars.
The popular Frank Sinatra song "My Way" has been taken off many karaoke bars in Manila after it was found to be the cause of fights and even deaths when patrons sang out of tune.
All of Asia is a karaoke war zone. Remember that time I mangled "Like a Virgin" in Singapore? I could be dead!
Okay, Malaysians and Filipinos (you know who you are!), defend yourselves! And then repent! Repent!
