I miss him, too. If you find him, tell him he still has fans.  

 

I liked the the Crutch's articles, too, but mostly stopped reading the Post after being forced into retirement 5 yrs ago. If you're reading, Hi Crutch!!

As the Sunday Bangkok Post has shrunk over the years and the supplement magazine contains nothing of value Old Crutch”s column is about the only thing we’re reading.

Unfortunately where I live in the North the newspaper often doesn’t arrive.

Try reading that last book he released “ The Long Winding Road to Nakhon Nowhere”

Plenty of laughs and humor

"Free to Laugh" in Thailand!? There are situations where it's not advisable to laugh if you follow my drift.

Yes, please! Somebody needs to write a book about Trink's Nite Owl life in Thailand, his willing ladyfriends, and their scores!

"Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit" - so therefore all wit is based on it???

But you must finish the rest of it, the quote by Oscar Wilde. "Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit and the highest form of intelligence"

Although I have lived in various parts of Asia for over 30 years, I have yet to find an Asian who truly gets sarcasm, and I have no idea why.

 

I used to live in a small village in Indonesia where if you saw someone that you knew and were passing them by on your way somewhere else, you still had to say something. Anything. The number of times I had this conversation:

 

"Ahh! Meeting you here, eh?"

 

My response, after a while, was always;

 

Ahh! Still alive I see, eh?"

 

No one ever blinked an eye. No one.

 

 

Reminds me of my usual response to "How are you?"  - "Surviving". In Thailand I've had to adapt it a bit, usually "Bai ha gig". What is definitely true is that no-one is remotely interested in how you really are. Maybe your sister or your mother., if you're lucky.

Sarcasm is not, it is irony
