There's something rotten in Thailand

Thailand is a study in contrasts. Here is a place that will kill drug smugglers yet has the largest sex-trade on the planet. Smoke a joint and you're toast, dress in drag and people will toast you!

Seems they don't have a sense of humor there either, Samak Sundaravej, chosen Monday as the first elected prime minister since a Sept. 2006 coup, has been nicknamed "Mr. Rose Apple Nose" because many claim his nose resembles the fruit. (Apparently drinking is OK.)

Thai sign-language interpreters often indicate prominent facial features as shorthand for dignitaries and during a live broadcast of Monday's parliamentary session, they held their noses between two fingers numerous times to refer to Samak.

This didn't go over well with authorities and the country has now embarked on a campaign to stop the practise among the general population.

That stinks!!!
