Cat and Mouse

Physical comedy translates well into many cultures, including in Thailand. In fact, slapstick comedy is extremely popular here, so it makes sense that Thais would appreciate the antics of the classic Warner Brothers characters, Tom and Jerry. The other day, my cabbie had a figurine with this famous cat and mouse duo on his dashboard, and the way he drove through the streets of Bangkok, I could tell he was a big fan of that cartoon. It felt like we were playing a game of cat and mouse the whole time.
