Topless Farang Fined 100 Baht in Chiang Mai

Recommended Posts

Now I feel bad because every time I swim at a hotel pool, I must be offending the Thai's. They should close down the beaches and pools or implement the Arab swim suit code. coffee1.gif

I don't care about his bare chest. I do think, however, he should have been fined for that profoundly stupid hairstyle and looking like a seedy scumbag.

How does one get a hairstyle like that? I mean, other than never going near a brush, a comb, or soap and water, how does one go about achieving the look of a dirtbag? More profoundly, why would anyone choose that look?

A very happy day in Laos was when the cops went to Vang Vieng and plowed down all the bars along the river. Far too many seedy folks were coming to Laos to party there and the government had enough of their type. I agreed completely. Party's over scum. Go home, cut your hair and clean yourselves up.

Please note, I'm a 60's child and grew up with long hair a la Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple etc. So my issue is not the length of his hair, it's the fact that he looks like a drug addicted homeless Rastafarian.

No doubt, a first timer. Guess he hasn't figured out a colorful Songkran-style shirt is the way to go..., and for the sum of his (hefty..., 5555!) fine.

Media circus with all the usual suspects.

That's it, the country has now officially taken a turn to a fascist state.

Nice story! I notice NOT a woman arrested. Tells me the police are generally sane. Also, the level of the fine tells me what they think of this law.

I'd fine him another 1 or 200 for his haircut coffee1.gif

The BIB could have turned this whole stupid thing into a winner.

Give the guy 100 baht to get a haircut.

What about wearing a mop on his head? Isnt that indecent in thai culture to put on your head something that belongs to the floor?

I wonder if there is any other country in the world where a male tourist would be arrested for going bare-chested in 42/104 degrees. Why does this country repeatedly make itself a laughing stock. So many of my friends in Australia and Europe refuse to come now to such a lunatic asylum Plenty of alternatives where they wouldn't have to watch what they say and do.

Look forward to the fun idea.

B.T.W seems like you don't realize the rules are not to use CAPITALS as you did above. Just saying.

Duck or you might get a drenching from a moderator. post-4641-1156694606.gif

This is a stray "April Fools" joke.

No but while folk are "Playing" this thread they miss the real stories.

What's the Songkran road death toll so far?

How many DUI's have been arrested?

etc. etc.

Not smart or sophisticated enough to know how ridiculous they make themselves look with actions such as this. TL is certainly the hub of really stupid decisions cheesy.gif.

Don't miss them a bit as they are regurgitated constantly by drones on television and uninteresting conversationalists.

All blame thailand about strange rule.. look back home like in the so called civilized western.

Usa many strange and wierd rules. Euroepan countires the same.

Solve that first your own country before you make any judgment about any other country you are speakong about.

Respect your own rule respect others their rules too.
