I’m not sure my favorite, but I think it’s “Father selects his son in law”, with “donkey skinned princess” a close second.

The stories are often printed in both Khmer script and a sort of English. They are often totally bizarre and the endings leave me scratching my head wondering what on Earth the underlying message was. I've even found bad language in them, some story about a bird getting angry and saying "You fucking bad baby bird", or something on that lines. Worth checking out for a laugh.

On the inappropriate word front. With family at the beach and a little girl (6yo) had “Fuck you” on her T shirt!
It was whipped off and replaced when I explained what it meant.
You. Yes you, mind your own fucking business about what I do and don’t say online. Sad sook.

Mind you, even that crusty old slag, and part-time lesbian, Enid Blyton had the odd bad day with her kiddy books too. ImageImageImageImageImage

I always suspected Herge was implying something between Tintin and Haddock, I mean he was Belgian, after all

That Tintin in Bangkok is just a crudely-drawn parody. If you want to have a go at the Belgians there is no better place to start than Tintin in the Congo:
