Malaysian Astronaut

American Spaceman is called Astronaut / Russian Spaceman is called Cosmonaut

Chinese Spaceman is called Taikonaut / Malaysian Spaceman? - Can-or-naut!

The Top Minister in Malaysia was thinking about sending somebody into space. Three potential can-a-nauts were called for an interview - one Indian, one Malay and one Chinese.

Top Minister interviews the Indian first: "So, Muthu, this is a dangerous mission. How much do you think you should be paid?" Muthu replied: "One million ringgit." "Why so much?" asks Top Minister. "Very dangerous mission, Datuk. Maybe no come back!" replied Muthu. "That's understandable," says Top Minister. "Thank you...please ask the Malay guy to come here".

So the Malay walks up, and is asked the same question. "Alamak!...2 million, Datuk," replied the Malay candidate. "Two million? That's twice as much! Even the aneh before you asked for only one million." "You see, Datuk," explains Mat. "I have 4 wives and 15 children ... With 20 of us, it is a big family to support when I am gone...!" "I see," says Top Minister. "Okay, can you ask that Chinese guy to come then?"

The Chinese guy comes in and Top Minister asks, "Ah Chong, given this is a very risky mission, how much do you want?" Ah Chong thinks for a while, and says, "3 million." Top Minister appears shocked. "What?!? 3 million! Why so much?" Ah Chong beckons Top Minister to come closer. He quietly whispers into his ear, "Datuk, one million you keep, one million I keep, and then one more million to send that aneh into space lah!"
