Dr. M was thinking about sending somebody into

Three potential can-or-nauts were called for an

An Indian, a Malay and a Chinese. 
Dr. M 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 Dr. M.
"Very dangerous mission, Datuk.

Maybe no come back!" replied Muthu.
"That's understandable," says Dr. M.
"Thank you... Please ask the Malay guy to come

So the Malay walks up, and is asked the same
"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 Dr. M.

"Okay, can you ask that Chinese guy to come in
The Chinese guy comes in and Dr. M asks, 
"Ah Chong, given this is a very risky mission,
how much do you want?"
Ah Chong thinks for a while, and says, "3
Mahathir appears shocked. "What! 3 million!?
Why so much?"

Ah Chong beckons Dr. M 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!"
