If there’s one thing you can count on Malaysians to do, it’s to make memes out of every serious, potentially-life changing situation.
Now that our nation is undergoing some serious governmental imbalances, Malaysians who are waiting for the final result as to who our new Prime Minister would be are spending their time creating memes of the current situation while they wait.
And we have to add, they’re all quite entertaining. Here are just some of our favourites.
Some netizens are using card games such as UNO to illustrate Tun M’s decision to resign.

Aikiu (@Iq_Dazhmil) also went with the UNO angle, but he portrayed Tun M to have pulled out multiple Reverse cards.

He wrote, “Tun M using all of the reverse cards right now for the end game.”
But they’re not the only ones to utilise games to add humour to the current situation.
Facebook page What The Malaysia showcased a meme created in the style of a Fallout chat box.
What The Malaysia wrote, “Tun M: Bye ya’ll.”
Yugen Nathan (@arsedroid) posted an image depicting Tun M switching teams.
PH: Anwar is our last hope. We need the power transition to happen now!

He wrote, “Pakatan Harapan: Anwar is our last hope. We need the power transition to happen now!”
But that’s not all.
Netizens have also realised that the drama and intensity surrounding the current coalition makes for very good television content.
Farhan.paan (@farhanmohdi) showcased the House of Cards television series poster with Tun M’s head photoshopped onto a main characters’ body.

Apparently, our now former prime minister also found himself in a dance with dragons, thanks to Harry Kok Siew Yok.
He wrote, “Game of Tuns.” An homage to the popular TV series, Game of Thrones (GoT).
He also made an appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), after getting his hands on Thanos’s infinity gauntlet, as shared by Raishah Razali (@RaishahRazali).

It turns out that Tun M has also been adapted into an anime villain.
Danial Azmy shared a group of his favourite anime villains for outsmarting those around them.
He wrote, “Top 10 anime villains.”
And lastly, considering the fact that Malaysians are impatient people in general, they’ve decided that they cannot wait for the authorities to announce a new Prime Minister and are taking the selection process into their own hands.
Job Malaysia posted a job opening for a new Prime Minister.

They wrote, “Job vacancy. Title: Prime Minister. Location: Putrajaya. Fresh graduates with 15 years of experience are encouraged to apply. Please submit your application through the comment section below. Thank you.”
Their posting has even been shared over 7,000 times!
And there you have it, proof that Malaysians can have a great sense of humour even during times of turmoil and crisis.
Let’s just hope that we can keep up the good vibes throughout the entire transition process and if anymore unexpected news pops up!
