Hitting the roof, rolling on the floor laughing

- +

I love Thailand. It's truly the Land of Smiles. This was especially true of the front-page news last week describing the bungled casino raid by detectives and policemen from Tao Pun Police Station on the infamous Tao Pun casino. 

Reading the front page was funnier than watching Mr Bean. It was a case of ROTFL (rolling on the floor laughing), to use internet-speak.

Just in case you woke up late last Monday and didn't have a chance to read the front page of the Bangkok Post before your maid used it as doggy litter, it was all about the raid by 50 detectives on the well-fortified casino. After a week in planning, they climbed rooftops of neighbouring houses to get in through the roof vent. The entire clientele were caught red-handed, but no arrests could be made since the back-up team of 150 police, in full riot gear, never made it to the premises, having been pelted by the locals with the sticks and stones.
