Why Singaporean girls can't win miss universal title

I received an email from a friend in UK this evening, nothing special, but quite amusing to read, here it goes :-

Why Singaporean girls can't get a Miss Universe title :

One of the main reason why in recent years the Singapore government has always ensured that their Miss Universe representative were of tertiary level education or higher ,was because of the following incident, which occured not too many years ago.

It was the final round of the Miss Universe pageant and the three finalists, Miss USA, Miss Malaysia and Miss Singapore were being asked three simple questions:

MC: name me an electrical appliance begins with the letter "L"
USA : Lamp !
Malaysia : Light bulb !
Singapore: Ladio !
Judge : No, no radio does not start with "L"

MC : I am going to give you three more chances,now name me an animal begins with the letter "L".
USA : Lion !
Malaysia : Leopard !
Singapore : Labbit !
Judge : No, no ! no!

MC : Your next chance, give me the name of a famous car starts with "L".
USA : Lexus !
Malaysia : Lamborghini !
Singapore : Lolls Loyce !
Judge : Oh, my god !

MC : I am going to give you a last chance, name me a fruit that starts with the letter "L".
USA : Lemon !
Malaysia : Lychee !
Singapore : Liew Lian !
Judge : Liew Lian? what is Liew Lian ?

This is not the end of the story, the judge consulted the board of judges to determine if Miss Singapore is really be disqualified, and they decided that since Miss Singapore was having so many problems with the letter "L",they decided to give her another chance.

Judge : Ok, the final question is ' name me a human anotomy starting with the letter "L"'.
USA : Lung ! (applause)
Malaysia : Liver !( even more applause)
Singapore :( with full of confidence and smiles ) Lan Ciau, ! ( 'standing' ovation ! )
