The strangest Expat I ever met was


Just wondering if any of you have any interesting or unusual stories regarding expats in Taiwan. For example, I once knew a South African fellow who claimed to speak Mandarin but who in fact went around generally shouting at the locals while randomly using the 4 tones in an arbitrary manner. It was rather comical watching him sing almost operatically to his smiling victims who didn’t have a clue what the hell he was talking about. In addition, he sometimes showed up at class dressed like a total Kaosan Road hippie freak and the next day he would dress up like a Wall St. stockbroker. He seemed to have a limitless supply of personalities tucked away in his tickle trunk. The last I heard, he was off to the mainland with his Cambodian “fiance” in search of greener pastures. That’s one freak I’ll never forget.

I refuse to discuss freaks on the grounds of self-incrimination.

I was going to say the same thing. :blush:

Is that a penis?

In Canada, there once was a popular children’s entertainer on TV called Mister Dressup. He kept an endless supply of costumes in a trunk, which he referred to as his “tickle trunk”. So come on. There must be hundreds of unique and bizarre stories worth relating. Don’t you think?
