Army Declares War on Hell


More evidence of the clear, rational and forward-thinking of our beloved military: exorcisms of evil spirits are to be held at two locations to rid the Kingdom of bad luck:

“[Fortune teller] Mr Niphon [Rohitsathian] said when the prison was removed to make way for a 20-storey apartment block for senior officials, it would destroy a gate between hell and the real world. That would allow the spirits to cause more turmoil for the country, including more coups. Mr Niphon said he disagreed with tomorrow’s ceremony and suggested the army preserve the perspective and architecture of the old prison and turn it into a museum.”

Repressive state apparatus and ideological apparatus combine in a perfect example of how the deliberate weakening of the education system enables the rich and powerful to hang on to their perks.

Prasert ‘Einstein’ Pongsuwannasiri Speaks


You honestly could not make it up. Here is Democrat (surprise surprise) MP Prasert ‘Einstein’ Ponsuwannasiri:

“Democrat MP for Yala Prasert Pongsuwannasiri said the workers’ claim that service had been suspended for security reasons was not justifiable, as most of the trains had managed to survive insurgent attacks and even the killings of railway workers on board. Therefore, he said, the excuse that they were concerned about their passengers’ welfare was unacceptable.”

Where to begin?

“Most of the trains had managed to survive insurgent attacks and even the killings of railway workers on board.”

So, some trains and some workers have managed to survive terrorist attacks therefore the others are all safe?

Really?

I sometimes wonder why people voted for this government. Eh? Oh.
