British Trader, B - Say man do you know where is that(wanting to know if it's Siam)
Chinese Worker, C - (saw his British boss pointing at a siamnese male instead of the place and doesn't want to look stupid and wanted to impress the boss) Oh, that one ar? Thai Lan lo!
B - What????
C - Thai Lan you know? Lan(D!ck in cantonese)? Cock? Thai Cock?
