The spicy lemongrass soup is what it is. Deal with it.

Q. Hey, spicy lemongrass soup, are you really?
A. Yes, Siam.

It’s like there’s a party in my spicy lemongrass soup and all my sea friends are invited.

Looks like they totalled up the sea friends wrongly – notice the sticker!

I knew I couldn’t trust my slippery snake in the grass uncle!
So I broke the lampshade on his head!
He can sleep with his fishy sea-friends…

It’s always the uncle with the lampshade on his head. What a party.

It was at a party, at my mate’s house in Thailand. At dusk, several lovely Thai ladies turned up dressed as lamps. What happened next was most illuminating….To say the least. 😉

If you truly love something,
Then you should set it free,
And if it loves you in return,
Then it will come back to thee.

But if Perchance it returneth not,
And leaves a void,
Within your heart,
With nothing else to fill it.

Then take a gun,
And seek it out,
And hunt it down,
And kill it. 😆

Ah. The youth of the heart, and your lover in the morning.

They’ve all gone, and left you, without any warning. 😥

Chinese snake-head fish uncle didn’t react well to learning he was on the menu, breaks a lampshade in fright. Broken lampshade ends up on menu too because, wtf, it’s Thailand.

They were going to “hang a lampshade” on their poor language skills, but…

The lampshade is broken because a customer passed out while wearing it.

I’ll take the Chinese snake-head fish uncle please. You know, when the Chinese snake-head-fish uncle gets back from Lowes with the new lampshade.
