Thailand’s Air Chief Marshall Foo Foo The Poodle Cremated
The beloved miniature poodle of Thailand’s crown prince has been cremated after four days of Buddhist funeral rights – an extravagance that’s surprising until one realizes that Foo Foo formally served as the country’s Air Chief Marshall.
In a diplomatic cable revealed by WikiLeaks, the U.S. ambassador to Thailand, Ralph “Skip” Boyce, wrote about a gala he hosted in which the pooch came “dressed in formal evening attire complete with paw mitts” and at one point hopped on the table and drank from his glass.
As if a pet with overcoats and senior military rank didn’t make enough of a statement, Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn scandalized the Thai people when photographs emerged of his wife’s 30th birthday. In them, Princess Srirasm fed the prized poodle birthday cake, while wearing little more than her birthday suit.
Yea, I’ve got nothing.
