It was bound to happen sooner or later ...

This is the part of the forum where we discuss Cambodia's nightlife! While most bars, nightclubs, pubs, beer gardens, and hostess bars are in Phnom Penh, we discuss the Cambodian nightlife across all of Cambodia, including Siem Reap, Kampot, and Sihanoukville. The main nightlife areas in Phnom Penh are on Street 136, Street 130, Street 110 and Street 51, but there are other party spots that aren't girlie bars where expats, tourists, and locals drink until the sun comes up. Feel free to post specials and promotions that relate to nighttime fun!

Elon Musk has been in the news a lot recently ... some people don't care for Elon ... but I think he is an interesting guy ... always coming up with these high tech ideas and stuff ... personally, I have nothing against him ... my problem is with the entire Musk family ... even after they shower, they still smell weird.

I concocted my own joke when I found out "choo" was Khmer for pain;

"Choo choo!"

... absolutely bombed on nearly every Khmer I have tried it on, comments like "trains don't sound like choo choo, they go brrrrrr.. etc." Gutted.
I understand the train driver ran away. The police are on the lookout for a Mr Rotha Pleung

Haha, that is a gem of an addition, I will try it out again later & report back whether it has swung the scales in my favour! :hattip:

Yep, I got a similar response.
‘Don’t you know the word for train, bong?’
It’s difficult to get word play to work.

But then the ‘how do you get from o’russey to Olympic?’ Joke gets them howling.

The answer is ‘by boat’ because the oh sound at the start of each word is similar to the word to row/paddle a boat.
I’m wasted here.
