Blue cartoon cat Doraemon invades ancient temple

Our cuddly hero Doraemon

Some people would be offended if you suggested painting Homer Simpson amongst the apostles, tucking into Leonardo Da Vinci’s The Last Supper. And try as you might, you’ll never get away with adding the image of Sponge Bob Square Pants on to Michael Angelo’s Creation of Adam in the Sistine Chapel. However, hidden amongst the ancient murals painted on the walls of a Buddhist temple in Thailand, you will find the popular Japanese cartoon character Doraemon.

For the uninitiated, Doraemon is a blue, earless robot cat from the 24th Century. The character first appeared in Manga comics in 1969 and has since starred in TV, films, musicals and video games. He was even called the ‘Cuddliest hero in Asia’ by Time Magazine.

Doraemon is hugely popular throughout Asia and Thai artist Rakkiat Lertjitsakun is extremely fond of him, so much so that he decided to add him and his schoolboy friend Nobita Nobi into his latest commission – the ancient murals on the walls of Wat Samp Pa Siew in Suphan Buri, Thailand.

Can you spot Doraemon?

“Inserting hidden messages into temple paintings is an age old tradition,” explained Rakkiat. “Years ago they would hide depictions of sex in the murals; nowadays it’s a blue cartoon robot cat.”

The inclusion of Doraemon has become a national sensation in Thailand. Many people think it’s a wonderful idea and they can’t wait to rush to the temple to look for him ‘Where’s Waldo’ style. Others are not so happy, with a few calling for the return of the old traditions.

Where’s Doraemon?

“If hiding images of sex in the murals was good enough for our grandparents, it should be good enough for us,’ complained Phat Maanruning. “We need a return to the old ways. Stop hiding blue cats in the murals and stick to hiding boobs and fanny.”

Dirty monk’s dirty habit gets him in to trouble

In Crazy YarpNews on January 23, 2011 at 1:28 pm

In this latest strange but true story, a bad Buddhist monk had a stroke after he was caught having sex with a temple dog behind Sam Toei Temple in Pitsanuloke, Thailand.

Villagers were drawn to the scene by the howls of protest from the dog, which the monk had tied to a tree. After seeing the monk with the poor pooch the villagers called the police.

All the excitement was obviously too much for the 65-year-old monk to take because by the time officers arrived on the scene he was lying unconscious next to the animal. A bottle of dishwashing liquid was found next to him, presumably for use as a makeshift lubricant.

Rescuers rushed the monk to hospital, where he remains in a coma. Doctors said he had suffered a stroke and are not sure if he will survive. The monk was identified as Phoopan Chitupanarso. The Abbot of Wat Sam Toei, said Phoopan had been at the temple for only a few days.

Temple authorities were allegedly already preparing to ask him to leave because he had refused to provide references from his former temple and because he smelt like wet dog.

Police did not say what Phoopan would be charged with if he regains consciousness but there have been sniffs of a rumor about unpawful entry.

Thief lifts trousers

A shopper at a Carrefour Supermarket in Bangkok, Thailand had an embarrassing journey home after a thief stole his trousers while he was on the toilet.

Twenty-four year old Mr Kasin, reported the incident to Thong Lor Police. Mr Kasin said that around midday he went to use the toilet in Carrefour. In the cubicle, he took off his trousers and placed them on the floor beside the toilet. When he had finished his business, he looked down to find that his trousers had suddenly vanished.

He said that in his trouser pockets he had his mobile phone and his wallet containing around $20 in cash.

The report did not give details on how Mr Kasin was able to get from Carrefour to the police station with no money and no trousers. Mr Kasin also declined to reveal why he had felt the need to remove his trousers in the first place.

Cell phone fears grip Thailand, brain hemorrhage calling

In Crazy YarpNews on December 19, 2010 at 1:03 pm

People in Northern Thailand are afraid to answer their cell phones following claims that calls from certain numbers can cause instant brain hemorrhages.

Recently, warnings have gone out to watch out for numbers containing the sequence 3333, 6666 or any number starting 083-33, 086-66 and ending with 67. If the gossip is to be believed, when calls from these numbers are answered the phones send out a high frequency signal causing an instant brain hemorrhage and blood to explode out of your ear.

The deadly phone calls have reportedly been restricted to the North of Thailand with reports coming from Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Lampang, Phayao, Phrae and Nan.

It is rumored that more than 40 people have been killed in Phrae, all because of dangerous frequencies coming from their mobile phones.

Amnuay Na Lampang, Deputy Superintendent of Song Men Police, said he asked his officers to investigate the stories of people in his district dying after answering their phone. However, his officers could find no evidence of any telephone-related fatalities, but they had heard news of mobile phones causing people to crash their cars or giving them brain tumors, but never causing brain hemorrhages and instant death.

“The stories were probably just made up by youths for a laugh,” he said.

Finally, after collecting enough evidence from across the North of Thailand, our news team plucked up the courage to try one of the deadly numbers out. Our reporters called 083-333-5xxx, reportedly one of the most dangerous numbers.

Instead of an explosion of blood from the ear, however, we got hold of a very angry young woman who complained she had been called more than 100 times that day by people asking if she had been sending out high frequency death waves. 

The phone then emitted a high frequency tone and our reporter suffered a fatal haemorrhage with an explosion of blood from his ear.

Wax wiener is a flop

LAMPANG in Thailand: Youths in the North have found a dangerous new way to impress the ladies: a home-made penis enlargement therapy using beeswax.

The new trend came to light when a 21-year-old unnamed man checked into hospital at the end of October with a badly infected wang.

The man sheepishly told doctors that he had injected his penis with warm beeswax to pump it up to a more impressive size.

The trick worked perfectly at first, but after a few days his dick started to hurt. A nasty wound appeared where he injected the wax and continued to spread.

The young man told doctors that he bought a tube of beeswax ointment used to treat cuts.

He put it in hot water until it was soft enough, then injected it straight into his todger.

This was a very popular trick among Lampang’s young men, allowing them to gain an extra inch or so, he said.

Doctors operated on the young man. While they managed to save most of the infected johnson, they had to remove some tissue.

When they are sure the infection is healed, they will transplant skin from another part of the youth’s body to try and restore his organ to its original appearance, doctors said.

As for whether the man’s penis would still be able to work as well as before the impromptu enlargement, doctors said it was too early to know.

Dr Sirichai Phataranuthaphon from Lampang Provincial Public Health Office implored youths in the province not to follow in the unfortunate patient’s footsteps.

Provincial authorities cannot legally prevent youths from trying to enlarge their genitals because it is their personal right, but they should be aware of risks that include infection and potentially fatal septic shock, he said.
