Another pastiche, and another classic from Not The Nation… !
Police Col. King Kwaengwisatchaicharn, head of the team investigating the assassination attempt on Sondhi Limthongkul, said he had whittled the list of suspects to a little under one third of the Thai population.
The new estimate of 19,673,298 suspects is slightly lower than the 24,120,939 mentioned by police earlier in the day. […]
King said he had been inundated with leads since the assassination attempt. “Every time I get the list down under 15 million it spikes back up again,” he said. “It is incredible how many people wanted to kill this guy.” […]
Personally I think his humor, so british, his sense of non-sense are totally irresistible.
And the point is : this kind of humor matches perfectly many thai stories.
