Three guys are out having a relaxing day fishing. Out of the blue they catch a mermaid who begs to be set free in return for granting each of them a wish.
Now one of the guys just doesn't believe it, and says: "OK, if you can really grant wishes, then double my IQ."
The mermaid says: "Done."
Suddenly, the guy starts reciting Shakespeare flawlessly and analysing it with extreme insight.
The second guy is so amazed, he says to the mermaid: "Triple my IQ."The mermaid says: "Done."
The guy starts to spout out all the mathematical solutions to problems that have been stumping all the scientists in various fields: physics, chemistry, etc.
The last guy is so enthralled with the changes in his friends that he says to the mermaid: "Quintuple my IQ."
The mermaid looks at him and says: "You know, I normally don't try to change people's minds when they make a wish, but I really wish you'd reconsider."
The guy says: "No, I want you to increase my IQ times five, and if you don't do it, I won't set you free."
"Please," says the mermaid. "You don't know what you're asking, it will change your entire view on the universe won't you ask for something else.....a million dollars, anything?"
But no matter what the mermaid said, the guy insisted on having his IQ increased by five times its usual power.
So the mermaid sighed and said: "Done."
And he became a woman.

Singapore style English...
I do not understand why the Chinese send their children to Singapore to learn English. They will be learning Singlish rather than English..
