There is an old joke about an important minister who had an interview on national television. As they were rehearsing, the host asked the minister “what is the thing that you love most” and the minister says “Sex”, the host explains to him that when they’re on air he can’t say sex; he should say something else, maybe like reading. As they went on air, the host asked the minister “what is the thing that you love most” and the minister said “reading”, so the host asks him “what is it that you love to read about” and the minister says “Sex”!

I always remember this joke whenever I see our information minister.
