    Australian arrested in Singapore for swearing won't be caned

    The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade says an Australian man arrested in Singapore for swearing on an international flight is not facing caning. It is alleged the incident occurred on a Tiger Airways flight between Perth and Singapore on January 3.

    It is believed the 47-year-old Australian man got up from his seat to allow a passenger to go to the toilet.

    An adjacent sleeping passenger was disturbed by the activity and is said to have sworn at the Australian, who then swore back.

    Flight attendants intervened and the Australian was arrested on arrival in Singapore.

    The country's "outrage of modesty crimes" laws include using coarse language.

    DFAT says an Australian man is being provided with consular assistance in Singapore but he is not in custody.

    The department says print media reports that the man faces caning are incorrect.

    Haha,now that is a funny post!
    I was going to post pretty much the exact opposite: If I'm ever on a flight to Singapore I'll make sure I don't swear!

    ^ Do it. Swear your head off. Wear the shirt.

    Make sure you keep it all hidden and are polite until you are well on the trip though. Preferably be drunk as well (half a white wine spritzer would do the job). Try the rape worthy line a few times to the trolly dollys as well.

    They truss you up like a gimp so you'd probably be jerking off whilst they do it.

    I know that outing people if a bit of a no no of internet forums, but i think we can all agree that socal does not deserve such protection. I think with this post we can correctly identify socal as Stephen Hibbert. The man who played the gimp from pulp fiction

    I would imagine that the other passenger who initially swore at the no doubt fine upstanding Australian citizen was a Singaporean , it's a bit harsh really as the Australian was only replying in his native tongue
