"There are far too many pretty women in the government offices at the moment, distracting male workers and lowering business efficiency with their pert and yielding tightness. We must be ever watchful for possible immoral activities and it is well known that pretty women cause unhealthy activities that lead to insanity, blindness, sickness and bends. That is why from now on, thorough ugliness must be considered a deciding factor at all job interviews. Since the prettier candidate has already been blessed by God, it is only right that we should hire the uglier one."
Abdul Aziz, Chief Minister of the Malaysian State of Kelantan, during a recent lecture to government employees
