THE MERCILESS

A tourist was visiting a temple in Singapore when he noticed a statue, with two faces, a man and a woman, back to back, by the altar.

“This statue of the woman is the Goddess of Mercy, Kuan-Yin.”

“What about the other one?” asked the tourist.

“The one with the man’s face is the God of No Mercy, Kuan-Yew..”
