tell us Papayita Bar about it! become the eyes and ears of awol

hua hin, THAILAND The ongoing and rapid growth of Hua Hin and it’s surrounds has forever changed this once quiet village in several ways, many good, but any such expansion also inevitably attracts the bad elements of society. Only this week AWOL has heard (but been unable to confirm information) about an attack by a Thai teenager on a foreign lady in the Samorphong area, and there does appear to be more crimes and incidents involving foreigners as victims, but also sometimes as perpetrators. However it is very difficult for AWOL to get accurate and corroborated facts on most of these incidents, and this is where we would like to ask you for your help. If you witness, are a victim of, or hear about any incidents, small or large, violent, accidental or otherwise, we would like you to tell us about them. We can’t guarantee that it will go into print, but it will give us the chance to investigate further, as well as gain a broader perspective on what is happening here, which can then be passed on to you, our readers. Obviously the more information you can give us, such as full names, dates and times, precise locations and any police involvement (for example) the easier it will be for us to uncover possible stories that should be shared. In some instances we will not be able, or will be asked not to print a story due to a victim or family’s wishes, or a legal issue for example, and we must respect these situations, and if you supplied information to us we would also respect any requests made for anonymity, as we are acutely aware of the dangers that come from being the cause of either loss of face or business. Our aim would always be to try and present a fair and balanced account, and we hope that you can all help us do so. To submit information please email or call 081 649 8361. Thank you for reading AWOL.

Do you wonder why we say certain things, or what they really mean? Each week we will examine a different word or phrase and tell you how it came about. This week it is.. Round Robin A tournament in which each contestant plays each of the others. In order to identify the derivation of ‘Round Robin’, we need first to be clear about what the term means. It is now used to refer to things that operate in a rotational manner, like tournaments where each player plays every other, circular letters etc. Long before those contemporary meanings were known of, the term Round Robin had been used to refer to a variety of things. The earliest use was as a disparaging nickname, along the lines of ‘sly dog’ or ‘dark horse’. This dates back to the 16th century and was cited in a work by Miles Coverdale, in 1546: Certayne fonde talkers... applye to this mooste holye sacramente, names of despitte and reproche, as to call it Jake in the boxe, and round roben, and suche other not onely fond but also blasphemouse names. [fond then meant confounded, or foolish] Other uses were: - A reference to Roundheads, i.e. the supporters of Parliament during the English Civil War, as in Rump, 1662, a collection of scurrilous poems and songs. - The name of a high-spirited game. For example, in The Works of Mr. Thomas Brown, 1707 - “The noble and ancient recreation of Robin-Robin, Hey-Jnks, [sic] and Whipping the Snake.” - The name of virtually anything that was round in shape. For instance, Angler fish, pancakes and even, in An Epistle to Lieutenant Hamilton, a Scottish dialect poem by Alan Ramsey, 1721, the chubby little garden visitor, the Robin: Now, now I hope we’ll ding the Dutch, As fine as a round Robin,

Gin greediness to grow soon rich Invites not to stock-jobbing The variety of contexts in which the term has been used seems to argue against it being derived from the roundness of robins. It is more likely that ‘Robin’ was attached to ‘round’ just as a pleasant-sounding alliteration. The currently used ‘ rotational’ meaning is independent of all of the earlier uses. This began in the 18th century as the name of a form of petition, in which the complainants signed their names in a circle, so as to disguise who had signed first. This was especially favoured by sailors not surprisingly, as mutiny was then a hanging offence. The term is recorded in the January 1730 edition of The Weekly Journal: “A Round Robin is a Name given by Seamen, to an Instrument on which they sign their Names round a Circle, to prevent the Ring-leader being discover’d by it, if found.” It may be that this derives from the French ‘rond rouban’, which was a similar form of petition, in which the names were written on a circle of ribbon. That’s an attractive and plausible notion, but there isn’t any actual documentary evidence to substantiate it. Another idea, again attractive at first sight, is that the term ‘ringleader’ derives from the person who was first to sign the circle of names on a round robin. That’s not likely, as the first use of ringleader is from well before 1730. The most frequent use of ‘Round Robin’ now is as the name of tournaments with rounds where everyone plays everyone else. This originated in the USA at the end of the 19th century. The earliest citation found of that is from the Official Lawn Tennis Bulletin, issued in New York in 1895: “The so-called round-robin tournament, where each man plays every other, furnishes the best possible test of tennis skill.”

Italian Virginity Test (thanks to Karl) Mario is planning to marry and asks his family doctor how he could tell if his bride-to-be is still a virgin. Doctor says, “Mario, all the Italian men I know use three things for what we call a Do-It-Yourself Virginity Test Kit - A small can of red paint, a small can of blue paint and a shovel.” Mario asks, “And what do I do with these things, doc? The doctor replies, “Before you climb into bed on your wedding night, you paint one of your balls red and the other ball blue. If she says, ‘That’s the strangest pair of balls I’ve ever seen!’, hit her with the shovel. flights The wife asked what I was doing on the computer and I said I was looking for cheap flights. She got all excited, which is strange, as she’s never shown any interest in darts before.

Daily, weekly or long term big girls I went up to this fat bird in the pub last night. “You’re a big lass, aren’t you?” I said. “Tell me something I don’t know,” she replied with a tear in her eye. So I said, “Salad tastes nice.” A man was having sex for the first time with his 36 stone girlfriend. He says to her, “Do you mind if we turn off the light?”. She asks: “Why - do you find me repulsive?”. He says “No, it’s burning my arse “. One-Liners I was devastated to find out my wife was having an affair, but by turning to religion I was soon able to come to terms with the whole thing. I converted to Islam, and we’re stoning the slag in the morning! The wife suggested I get myself one of those penis enlargers....... so I did....she’s 21 and her name’s Shirley. My girlfriend said she was leaving me due to my obsession with the 60’s group The Monkees. I thought she was joking........And then I saw her face! My budgie broke his leg today so I made him a little splint out of a couple of Swan Vesta matches.....his little face lit up when he tried to walk. Five Horses Is Her Name (thanks again to Karl) This is mythical and deep. Truly beautiful... A man asked an American Indian what was his wife’s name. He replied, “She is called Five Horses”. The man said, “That’s an unusual name for your wife. What does it mean?” The Old Indian answered, “It old Indian Name. It mean... NAG, NAG, NAG, NAG, NAG

Taurus Apr 21 – May 21 You’ll suffer from a continuing inability to enjoy anything but the company of friends and family, the satisfaction of a job well done, and the knowledge that you have lived a life of dignity. Gemini May 22 – June 21 You’ll finally find a man who loves you for who you are, but unfortunately he’s every bit as miserable as you might expect.

Virgo Aug 23 – Sep 22 You’re not the kind of person who lets your physical handicaps stop you, but that’s because you prey on people with even fewer limbs than yourself, you sick puppy. Libra Sep 23 – Oct 23 Artistic expression has never been your strength, so it’s frankly mystifying when the National Gallery puts your margin doodles on display just to trash them. Scorpio Oct 24 – Nov 21 Sometimes it’s good to just sit back and watch the universe unfolding. But other times, such as next Tuesday, it’s good to stop baby carriages from rolling in front of buses. Sagittarius Nov 22 – Dec 21 Due to your optimism, your death next week with come as a big surprise; however, due to your devout Christianity, what comes after will be a terrible shock.

Capricorn Dec 22 - Jan 19 A hot bowl of soup and a good night’s sleep can cure many ills, it’s true, but you might want to consider the possibility that you have the world’s worst oncologist. Aquarius Jan 20 – Feb 18 Unfortunately for your dream of having multiple gorgeous sex partners, attitudes toward sex will become much more open-minded just as attitudes toward nutrition and personal hygiene go right down the tubes. Pisces Feb 19 – Mar 20 This is a great time for romance in the workplace, if you’re the sort of idiot who thinks that’s even close to a good idea. Aries Mar 21 – Apr 20 The gods do indeed enjoy playing games with our lives—tempting us with power and driving us mad with hubris—but you they just enjoy seeing hit in the balls.

Honghu, China Eel removed from man’s bladder after entering penis during beauty spa An erratic eel wriggled its way up a man’s penis and into his bladder following an accident during an unorthodox beauty spa in China. Zhang Nan was bathing with live eels to cleanse his skin when one rogue serpent took a liking to his manhood. The eel treatment in question is a similar concept to the popular London spas that offer fish pedicures. Thinking that the eels would make him look ten years younger, Nan dived into the water and let them feast upon layers of dead skin. But after laying in the spa bath, Nan felt a sharp pain and realised a small eel was working its way up his urethra and into his bladder. ‘I climbed into the bath and I could feel the eels nibbling my body. But then suddenly I felt a severe pain and realised a small eel had gone into the end of my penis,’ the 56-year-old from Honghu, Hubei province said. ‘I tried to hold it and take it out, but the eel was too slippery to be held and it disappeared up my penis.’ Rushing himself to hospital, the man underwent a three-hour operation to remove the six-inch eel which was dead by the time doctors found it.

Hua Hin Game Fishing 081 010 3748 (Eng/Swe/Thai) or 081 686 8768 (Thai)

Surgeon Jin Wang said that, because of the eel’s slippery nature, it was able to make a smooth entry into the genitals of Nan. ‘The diameter of the urethra in a man’s penis is just a little narrower, but because eels are quite slippery, its body worked as a lubricant and so it got into the penis smoothly,’ he said. Believe it or not, Nan’s case follows a similar incident when a 14-yearold boy in India had to undergo emergency surgery. In a case study published by urologists Dr G Vezhaventhan and R Jeyaraman, they described how they removed a 2cm-long fish from the boy’s bladder. The teenager said that while holding the fish he had gone to the toilet and, while urinating, the fish had ‘slipped from his hand and entered his urethra’. Hmmm... corby, england Demolition man Steven Magee breaks record for world’s biggest fry-up Steven Magee has managed to stuff himself with the world’s biggest English breakfast, containing a whopping 7,500 calories and weighing an incredible three kilos. Mr Magee, 29, has become the only person in six years able to defeat the humungous fry-up at the Hungry Horse cafe in Corby,

Northamptonshire. At least 60 customers have attempted The Big One, which contains three times the recommended daily number of calories for an average male. The breakfast includes three sausages, three beef burgers, three fried eggs, three rashers of bacon, three slices of black pudding, three square sausages, three portions of beans and three portions of mushrooms. It comes alongside three potato waffles, three potato scones, three hash browns, three portions of fried bread, three rounds of bread and butter and three rounds of toast. The big breakfast takes up the whole 3ft griddle and is given away for free to anyone who can finish it.

FANTASY FOOTBALL Featured Game scottish premier Sunday, 18 September 2011 Rangers v Celtic, 18:30 Hampden Park, Glasgow The first (of three) scheduled meetings between the ‘Old Firm’, and as usual the two are locked together at the top of the table; however this match is often as much about the fans, who create a quite incredible atmosphere, not matched by many other derby games anywhere. This weekend will not see much police leave with not only this game, but on Saturday Millwall v West Ham, and on Sunday Spurs v Liverpool and Manchester United v Chelsea; any of them could have been our featured game, but this game in Scotland trumps them all. It is likely to be fast and furious as the fans’ frenzy affects the players; as with most derby matches the most likely outcome is a draw, but Rangers will have the edge over a Celtic side that has been a little erratic.

hookers, jock straps and warm beer auckland, new zealand THERE have been fresh calls to detain Britain’s diehard rugby fans in New Zealand for the rest of their lives. Campaigners insist the move will free up UK pubs from thick-necked men drinking a pint of somebody else’s vomit while the sparsely populated country will give them plenty of room to swing their constantly exposed forearms. Sportologist Dr Wayne Hayes said: “I once went to New Zealand by accident. They will have millions of pointless acres of grass to charge up and down while sniffing vigorously at each other’s scrotums. “If we act quickly and quarantine the place we can turn it into a knucklescraping version of the Jurassic Park island, but instead of velociraptors it’ll be slow-witted, ruddy-faced men called ‘Ollie’.”

Bid to keep rugby fans in New Zealand

Left: A warning has been issued to be on the lookout for Ollie, who is rumoured to have stopped in Hua Hin on his way to the Rugby World Cup

The World Cup has lured rugby people from 20 countries across the world with the promise of 14 penalties a minute and the chance to drink warm, flat beer from plastic cups. Experts estimate it could be the biggest migration of insufferables since the Nazi invasion of Russia.

London Bar and guesthouse

Hayes added: “Conservationists have complained that New Zealand’s pristine environment will be damaged by such high concentrations of hilarious flatulence, but then again it coped pretty well with five long years of Orlando Bloom’s ghastliness.” In the meantime, meteorologists predicted that if the wind is blowing in the right direction, people on the coast of Peru should be able to hear a jaunty song about a woman called ‘Vagina’. The World Cup will continue until 23 October, or until everyone involved has died from an anus-related prank.
