The Gecko: 6 May 2005

The new border committee to be headed by HM King Father Norodom Sihanouk is

drawing attention from multiple quarters, including that concerned with how to

pronounce acronyms. After careful deliberations, it has been determined that the

Supreme National Council of Border Affairs (SNCBA) may end up being referred to

as "Snack Bar".

** The word that Cambodia is a prime tourist destination

has reached the ends of the earth -- literally! Just last week, the Kingdom

received what is most likely its first visitors from Antarctica.

Jay and

Emily, currently working at the research station on McMurdo Sound, were spotted

along the riverfront sweating profusely and panting like polar bears stuck in

the Sahara Desert. They said Cambodia was "hot".

Antarctica is a really

interesting place, according to the couple, but for people with post-nasal drip

it can be difficult. "Like trying to swallow nails," said Jay.

want to know what happens to people who live in Antarctica too long can check

A: Forty-five years.

Q: Now doctor, isn't it true that when a person dies in his sleep, he

flashing?
