Sometimes its good to be king?
« on: August 02, 2019, 03:26:46 PM »
The King of Thailand held an odd ceremony Sunday where he named one of his top generals and longtime girlfriend as his official mistress...as his current wife looked on (and she is also a "general") :idiot2:

Pretty normal practice in Thailand.  It's almost a status symbol to have a mistress.  The Thai term is mia-noi.
