I would be rather worried myself if I was chased by those weirdos.
Silence, exile, and cunning.

chuckle, so would we probably
if we had just had our faces severely punched about by those cops standing immediately behind
- like every one of poor sad dumfenarkles looks like just happened to them.

actually, probably is.
My bet is they are ag workers from whatshisnames big mango and palm oil spreads in K.Speu.
They employ lots of guys that look just like this - living their hard-scrabble lives.
Pay's Ok - up to 10 bucks a day.
