Almost replicating the infamous ‘Diske Ammata Diskade” remark by former Minister Dayasiri Jayasekera, President Maithripala Sirisena said he noticed how the students of Sirimavo Bandaranaike Vidyalaya, Colombo 07, enjoyed “Dicks joy.”
“Even last evening, before it rained, I saw how they enjoyed Dicks Joy,” Sirisena said, causing ripples of laughter in the audience.
The audience was perplexed for a moment wondering if Sirisena passed a sexual innuendo at an event largely attended by teenage school girls.
They later realized that what Sirisena intended to say was “Disc Jockey”, not “Dicks Joy”.
Sirisena’s blunder immediately resembled the famous “Diske Ammata Diskade” remark made by his ally Dayasiri Jayasekera at an event hosted by Royal College, Colombo and S. Thomas’ College, Mt. Lavinia.
