Soooo…apparently wearing a crazy shirt while vacationing with your daughter is illegal in Thailand.
Other countries are strange.
I hope you’re being sarcastic. If you’re not, take a look at the title and work out what’s going on.
Please calibrate your sarcasm detection equipment accordingly to pick up the subtlety and nuance I project.
omg i hope ur the one bein sarcastic lol how thick r ye?
The top right image is used to indicate he was alone when he got there. There are no airport bathrooms in Thailand.
No, but it is in Cambodia. I can read the sign so its not Thai but Khmer.
It looks like he asked that girl to Khmer.
That doesn’t work if you pronounce it properly.
That was damn funny.
flmao fell out of my chair laughin at that one
Pretty unequivocal. Good.
Why didn’t they use Pedobear??
This cartoon is poorly translated.
It should be on Engrish Funny.
not thai lang
Sent from my PC
But it’s SE Asian, yes?
Or Ethiopic? Their print has circles and squigles, right?
that is thai, stupidass.
yep, definitely khmer.
It’s Cambodian, stupidass
It’s a bunch of squiggles, who gives a s**t? You retards are taking this way too seriously.
Dang disrespectful much ?
Wow, ignorant much? Obviously your brain has never been violated by an original thought.
Here’s one for you: To people of Asia, written English is nothing but lines and squiggles. You’re not special or better because English is your first language. Respect others if you want them to respect you.
Think you can remember all of that?
ok…so since you know the difference, it is obvious to me that you guys don’t have girlfriends :))
Or they’re Khmer.
it’s not Thai, fool! I’m Thai and I know what it is.
So, being a pedo is OK as long as you haven’t been on the airport?
Because in some poorer Asian countries poor families will “turn out” their daughters to guys that run sex vacations for tourists.
Throwing luggage at pedophiles = Jail time
LOL! You win.
I was confused at first, thinking the black thing in the second panel was a piano.
teaching kids how to play the piano = ass pounding prison!
you racist bastard :))…how can you say that a 9 year old cambodgian prostitute is a piano?
Smuggling children into Thailand in your luggage is illegal.
What’s the problem here? The pictures seem clear enough to me. Tourist + sex with a local kid = jail. Note that the tourist is white, the girl is not–it’s not likely a family member. Furthermore, you’re not likely to share a bed with a daughter of that age. I see no reasonable other meaning for the pictures.
I think the “Tourist+” part is oddly specific. They’ve got a whole panel devoted to something that’s pretty much irrelevant, assuming that they don’t accept the “business trip” defense.
I assume it’s because people think they can get away with it because they’re on vacation? So they specifically want to attract tourists’ attention with the sign. They had to pass a law in the States stating that if you’re an American travelling to Thailand and commit a sex crime you will be tried in the States. (And probably Canada too. Sorry, it’s been a while since I watched the news story, so my details are vague…)
I think it’s simply because southeast asia (esp thailand and burma) historically have had a large sex tourism trade. Period.
same in Aus. but not just thailand. anywhere.
I think it’s because historically Thailand’s authorities were turning a blind eye to child prostitution – as long as the money came in, it didn’t matter. In theory prostitution is generally illegal in Thailand, in practice it’s commonplace.
(Yes I know the sign if from Cambodia.)
I’m pretty sure it means that you can’t hide kids in your luggage
i think they should get their priorities straight…so in Cambodia it’s ok to kill, take/sell drugs/weapons and so on, but if she’s under 18 all hell breaks loose :))
Drugs and murder usually go along with the child sex industry.
It took me a second glance to notice the guy’s shirt is slightly unbuttoned in the second and third frame.
Swinging your suitcase around and posing for a photo in a hotel room will lead to you having to carry a grate around.
Thailand is indeed a strange place. (So strange the sign isn’t even written in their native language!)
I don’t think that girl is underage. Adult thai women are normally 2/3 the height of the average American tourist. This one is clearly standing at 3/4 his height, well above average adult female height.
Pretty obvious it is a child, why else would they have a sign.
To keep The White Man from stealing all their women, of course.
FYI- The language above is not Thai. Its Cambodia.
Is that Alan Harper?
No, it can’t be. Alan Harper PAYING for sex, he’d rather die a virgin
He prefers vacuum cleaners
It’s from WORLD VISION as noted by the clearly marked in English name in the lower right-hand corner, it is not posted by ordinance of a government (least not technically). It is a simple warning for white American/Europeans who intend to go to these countries and commit pedophilia.
World Vision has some strange agendas for my liberal ideology but I support this specific program and sign. The third world is not our play toy.
I absolutely agree, SE Asia is not a toy, it’s a brothel.
Dedicated to Mikhail Pletnev?
It’s a shame they paid all that money for a sign that the target market can’t actually read.
I’d have thought it meant that faceless men wearing mandals who kidnap young girls will be sent to the zoo.
They will, but the problem isn’t big enough to warrant signs.
Actually the biggest problem in SE Asia is their alphabet, because if they’d have normal, latin letters, Americans and Western Europeans could read in their ID how old the child is :))
Oh yeah, nothing’s as great for laughs as the child-sex-traffic/child-sex-tourism industry. I’m in stitches.
Actually, @biodiesel, there has been a thriving (and horrific) child sex tourism industry in Thailand for several decades. Rich white men pay a travel agency/slave trafficker for cruises or for specific resort packages that include a line-up of all the pre-pubescent Thai children one could molest in a weekend. These “vacations” are not promoted or sponsored by the government, and clearly this sign indicates that a crackdown is taking place. And about damn time.
This is just a microcosm of the $12 billion global pandemic of sex slavery. The next time someone dubs to prostitution as a “victimless crime,” refer them here: http://www.somaly.org/
Prostitution of adults is different from child prostitution. I think you know which type the “victimless crime” comment refers to.
First of all…thay people are not racist…you don’t really need to be white :))…and it’s not that expensive either…i mean not more than you’d usually pay for prostitutes :)). Anyway, so from what i understand, your problem is that the government isn’t involved and they’re not paying taxes?? OOOOHHHH noooooooo
Uh-oh. HOW long has it been illegal????
Seriously. I know two guys who bought their wives from Thai brothels, but they had to wait till they were 18 to marry and bring them here.
then, rachel, you can only pray that the 2 guys you know that married the 18 y.o. girls not have any children, and if they do, that you will be diligent enough to let children services know any time that you have a ‘feeling’ they are being abused. seriously!
You don’t know how old the guys or the girls were when they met. Rachel would have said it in other terms if the guys were sleeping with children, so it’s not the case.
You’re a douche and should mind your own business.
You know TWO guys like this? Where do you meet your friends??
So I hope rachel answered your question. Paedophilia has been prohibited in SE Asia for “Seriously” years
Awww but my sex tourism card is almost full!
yeah, it’s Cambodian. You can see Phenom Penh in the seal on the bottom-right.
this is not Thailand , campainge of World vision.
That’s not Thailand, it’s Camobdia, Ankor Wat is in the bottom right corner. And the writing is Khmer not Thai.
Their are signs like this EVERYWHERE in Cambodia, it’s so sad.
I agree, it’s really sad, I mean those signs are quite in-aesthetic and they’re all over
and wow, I just used the wrong “there”. Engrish Funny.
That’s Cambodian… not Thai.
I just got a kick out of reading all you guys comment. hehehee… cant hide a kid in your suitcase.. lol
Is this the late Garry Glitter?
He isn’t dead yet.
no one said he was dead…just has a problem with punctuality
Note how this entire scenerio seems to be happening in the same room.
That, or third world countries only carry paint in that exact shade of “road dash” yellow.
How do i report to the cheezeburger website about how much fail the title (as well as the submitter) is, or maybe I should post a demotivational about this one
by posting it on failblog :))
I used to be an white Cambodian in Thailand, …so I’m really getting a kick out of these replies…
The text is clearly a warning against trafficking – you can tell by the squiggles.
Then whats the point of going to Thailand!?
Gateway to Cambodia, of course!
FAIL! it not Thailand it is Cambodia! Lol! oddly specific Failblog Fail!
I read Chinese. It says that over 400 sex offenders were jailed in 2005.
I saw that the OP must have thought the khmer text was thai.
Really? I saw someone on YouTube who thought that the Thai language in a vid was just random gibberish. It really upset me. sorry if i come on as rather irritable, but thai is language too.
Thanks to all 17 of you who have informed me this is from Cambodia and not Thailand. Anyone want to volunteer to be #18 ?
It’s from Laos.
…It’s from LAOS.
The khmer writing says “Over 500 people were caught and jailed in 2005. Please call to inform the police, so we can protect our children.”
Thanks. I was curious about that.
I think it’s a lot funnier if you read it backwards: “after getting out of jail for trafficking in some country i don’t know the capital of, get laid with a midget and f**k off”
or…even better, if you consider mathematics, you could read it as: “While in jail, you fantasize about having sex with children and travelling”
this photo is great…you can make up literally hundreds of stories…like: “It is illegal to try to impersonate Michael Jackson is South-East Asia”
At first I thought he was with a midget
IT not Thailand, its Cambodia.
But the punish mostly the same.
It is illegal to take an asian woman home in your suitcase? When did this happen?
The exact location is really irrelevant. The important message should be not to go to foreign countries to boink children/midgets!
Midget boinking is illegal in other countries?
Urg. Not seeing the funny here. We all know what this sign means and it’s not a laughable subject. I understand that the jokes are all about making it into things it isn’t… but seriously. There are some things that are politically incorrect with good reason.
Sorry:D for those who’re curious about the language. i’m thai and this language is not thai. Maybe, it’s cambodian. I’m not sure.
Sergeant Hatred and little brown boy/girl make a cameo appearance.
