Best photo so far of the Thailand floods

Posted: October 16, 2011 in Thailand

The floods in Thailand are a huge catastrophe for the country. Nevertheless, we do have some entertainment to lighten things up a bit, mostly some of the people in charge running around like Keystone cops or making nonsensical statements. One of the better ones followed the report that a bunch of crocodiles had escaped from a farm north of Ayutthaya. “No problem” said the man in charge. They are farmed crocs so are not dangerous to humans like wild crocs. Shortly after that this photo circulated of a croc entering a home at the water’s edge. I don’t think it is actually a flooded home because if you look closely you see that is a floating ramp attached to the house. Looks like this is water-side home during normal times. Still a great followup to the “crocs are dangerous” comment.

      I’m not surprised that it’s not even in Thailand. Still a good meme in response to the statement about the crocs not being aggressive or dangerous.
