David Carradine. Some guy who nobody 30 years or less understands. Dead in Bangkok hotel room, allegedly in a
">perverse sex game scenario. They're my favourite I must admit.
Thai police are investigating whether Kung Fu star David Carradine died during a sex game gone wrong.
The 72-year-old actor, who also starred in Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill films, was found hanging in a Bangkok hotel room wardrobe with a rope around his neck and other parts of his body.
Police first said his death was suicide because there was no evidence of a struggle in the room and no bruising on Carradine's body.
Err, anyway. Play Fantasy Coroner and ask yourself this question. Why in Bangkok, of all cities, would you have to resort to such shenanigans? If it turns out that he really died die trying to get one way then he must have been the keenest masturbator on earth.
Now, if you're trapped in Launceston of an evening and get a bit randy maybe but for god's sake man - it's Bangkok. If Hoover became the common name for vacuum cleaners and people can call photocopiers a Xerox then surely Bangkok is the brand name for sleaze. Can't be bothered leaving the room? Just call room service you goose, don't climb into the cupboard and neck up.
Enough political comment..
