    Did you know this about Thai oranges?

    Allegedly they are SO full of Pesticides that they cannot be sold outside this Country!!!

    The Prawns from farms are said to be full of it too!

    Dammit! Love them both........

    Eventually you will be banned from leaving the country if you eat enough of them too.

    Living in Thailand can't be good for your physical health but it's not bad at times for your mental and sexual health.

    I think it's because they are crap, thats why they can't sell them outside Thailand, China, Malaysia have orange colored oranges that taste of orange.

    I have to go with the Dog on this one, Pissy Oranges here. and as far as the sweet water shrimps go,, shit I figured that out when I bought my first shrimps at a shrimp farm, and so that was the last of the flavorless bastards I will ever buy.
    But if it wasn't for the contaminates they pobly would have even less taste.

    So the oranges grown with numerous pesticides in the riverena district of Australia are better for you?
    And the Port Phillip Bay fish full of mercury as well?
    Personally I have a pot of freshly squeezed Thai oranges every morning, tastes allright to me.

    A friend of mine has made a fortune from exporting them to Australia, so they can't all be contaminated.

    I'm afraid I have got so used to my vodka and orange juice made with the Thai oranges, using the real stuff just doesn't taste right anymore.

    Does anybody know if the fruit is named after the colour or the colour named after the fruit? I asked my primary teacher and she told me to be quiet (because she didn't know the answer I suspect) so its been bugging me since 1978.

    Mandarin was a language long before it was a fruit. Some kinda musical instrument too.

    Go back and bust into her classroom when a bevy of students are deep in thought and give it too her good. The bitch deserves it. Where was Google in 1978? Tell her to "look it up."

    I know, mandolin, shitsticks.


    Oh, you're talking about oranges.

    Never mind.

    ^^Thanks Ban Saray.

    Looking foward to a good nights sleep at last. Yes I know, I could have googled it myself.

    Good idea Texpat.

    I had depraved pre-pubescent fantasies about giving it to several of my primary teachers but this fokin bag wasn't one of them.

    She is probably dead now anyway. At least I hope so.

    The oranges from the north of Thailand are nice, and I doubt the Pesticide residue is as harmful as Sang Som. Or Mcdonalds.

    Perhaps you missed that one. How about a discount holiday with a see-thru-boat in pattaya?
