It’s No Joke

Published

on

I mentioned on Monday that the Technology Crime Suppression Division warned internet users against posting pranks online about the coronavirus on April Fool’s Day otherwise they’d be prosecuted.

Fair enough. Some people are dumb and believe everything they read online so telling pranksters that prison cells were available if they didn’t comply was understandable.

However, the Thailand Anti-False News Center published an article with the graphic below on Tuesday 31st March which appeared to take things more than a step further by saying that publishing April Fools jokes and gags of any sort is spreading fake news.

Anyone caught doing so would be charged under The Computer Crime Act 2017 Section 14 and also the Emergency Decree 2005, Article 9 (3) that was brought into force last week by the government.

No Joke

Mixed and contradictory messages by government agencies and officials is something we are all used to here but did they really mean that pulling a funny out the hat like Richard Barrow Facing Jail On Charges Of Violating The Computer Crimes Act would land you behind bars?

Was something lost in translation?

I honestly don’t know but it didn’t stop one English Language “news” outlet trying it on. Only time will tell if by doing their own thing will land the editor in hot water.

As for me, I’m not taking any chances and giving it a miss. I just can’t be bothered with any drama right now.

Easy Does It This Weekend

Puffed Out

This weekend is a 4-day holiday in Thailand and normally I’d work through it and take some time off afterwards but with things so quiet on all fronts I decided to join the masses and take a couple of days off.

Updates will resume once I have slept myself silly and recharged my batteries.

I don’t plan on doing much of anything or going anywhere so I will still add a few updates on social media to pass the time as they don’t require much brainpower or thinking.

Whatever you are doing, be it the beach or boozing, maybe both, enjoy yourself and have fun.

See you on the other side.

Good Times At Geisha

Published

Geisha Nana Plaza

Geisha on the top floor of Nana Plaza opened back at the beginning of December 2018 and went through a rollercoaster ride under its owner dubbed the Crazy Korean.

I don’t want to drag up the past as he has now left the building and no longer in charge which has seen the bar go from alright for a quick drink to lets order another round and another.

With a Thai guy now at the helm, it is a totally different bar and me saying this comes off the back of more than one visit.

Just before the shutdown me and my bro were on a Nana bar crawl and we popped in for a drink. The new boss, staff and dancers made us right at home so much so we stayed until lights out when the plan was to hit each bar for 1 drink, ring the bell and move on.

I’d have been back sooner had it not been for the coronavirus shutdown but my wait was over when i dropped by with my missus the other night.

Decent music, cold beer, plenty of attentive staff and stage packed with birds with a second shift floating around waiting for their time.

The new man was in fine form and suggested we go watch the show in the tub with a ringside seat.

Oh man, that wee blonde thing kissing my missus will be with me until she gets round to bedding her and hopefully lets me watch.

A fun bunch they are in Geisha and unlike some other bars, nobody really giving a toss what you are up to as long as you aren’t getting out of hand and making problems and I like that because in some bars staff and security have a really bad habit of staring at people who are doing nothing wrong, just having some fun.

And one last thing to come out of my recent trip was they are up for doing a photoshoot sometime soon which would be good as I haven’t done one since last October.

So there you have another bar to add to your list the next time you are in Nana Plaza. Just don’t tell them Stickboy sent you.

A Night Out At Tartbox

A Night Out At Tartbox

During the dry spell when there was no beer to be had Artbox at Sukhumvit Soi 10 turned into a popular spot as refreshments were available.

It wasn’t only refreshments that were available but there was also the potential to meet ladies for some short time shenanigans as there was simply nowhere else for working girls, or those short on money and an itch to scratch, to meet men with some cash to splash on a bit of horizontal mambo.

Artbox didn’t really take my fancy when a few mates had said they were going but on Saturday night they decided to drop by for a beer and a bite to eat before moving on to the Neon Alley. I caved in and decided to join them.

Having taken a wander around buying food and parking my arse close to the stage I soon came to the conclusion the sign out front needed changing from Artbox to Tartbox.

I didn’t see the security guard at the gate on cleavage duty but there must have been one as everywhere I turned all I could see was tits hanging out on display for all to see and admire.

One lady with massive melons came close to a wardrobe malfunction on several occasions as she bounced around from stall to stall with all the bloke’s eyes popping out as she passed their tables. This woman wasn’t shy and was more than happy to show off her assets.

I spotted a few familiar faces in the crowd who normally ply their trade on Soi 4 too, and yes, they were all showing off the girls like it was a competition to see who could show the most.

One thing to keep in mind if you do decide to go for a nosy and chance your arm is not everyone you see there is looking to hook up. It really is a mixed crowd so watch out you don’t get a slap for making an indecent proposal to a group of girls there to have a drink after they’ve clocked off from the office.

Will Artbox continue to be a pick-up place for ladies of the night in the future?

Who knows with bars and other nightlife venues starting to reopen there are more choices of where to go man hunting.
