The pictorial and verbal versions of texts about the routines and problems of everyday life in Malaysia that are featured in Malay humour magazines enjoy immense popularity. Popular acceptance among Malays and the near immunity of such texts from government censorship suggest their relevance to the description and analysis of Malay perceptions of ethnic, lifestyle and class relationships in contemporary Malaysian society. Examples of texts and interpretations of them by Malay informants, cartoonists and humour writers as well as readers, indicate a very broad range of Malay perspectives on class and ethnic relations in Malaysia.
