    I was in Pattaya at Scandanavia restaraunt visiting Jojo and checking out his dance scene there. Four of my dancers came with me. Scandanavia is on beach road, and the ladies of the evening were out in full force that friday night. Well, coming opposite me as we were walking back to the hotel were two dwarfs (or midgets or whatever the politically correct term is). Now, they're people too and it's not that I have a problem with them or anything, but... the ladies along the road start cooing to these guys "Hey, handsome man". I mean seriously, come on. I thought it was a stretch when they say that to my short, bald old ass, but two dwarfs!!! It was like something out of a bad movie.

    I think these must be what certain (mostly banned) long time posters on TT used to refer to as IPDs or "Issan Power Dwarfs". Were you anywhere near Lolitas.

    The "little guys" were anglo, not Thai. So I don't think they were "Issan power dwarfs". And I don't know where Lolitas is. Scandanavia is on the corner of Soi 5 and Beach Road.

    Liz - I suppose. I can't judge men in terms of appearance at all, so maybe these guys were handsome dwarfs. Or not, since I was also accosted frequently with "Hey handsome man", something I am assuredly not.

    I think the P.C term is currently 'little people'

    OK, so was it as weird as when I saw the monkey at the bar in NKP smoking and drinking a beer? No, it wasn't that weird. Still pretty off though.

    To be perfectly honest, I don't find it weird at all.

    What serious working girl would shout: "Hey, you ugly dwarfs (little people if they're P.C. but I somehow doubt that)! Boom Boom?"


    Wouldn't make sense from a business perspective.

    OK, it's logical on a certain level, but still slightly weird.

    Think about it Mac. Their growth had to go somewhere, it just didn't go to their legs.

    This is more unneccesary imagery. You been hanging out with Cranky lately?
