As Soon As I Heard the Name Boonlert Boonpan, I Knew Thai Buddhist Monks Had Brawled Again

Seriously. Boonlert Boonpan? That is an awesome name.

Five Thai Buddhist monks have been defrocked and fined after a brawl with monks from a nearby temple, police and newspapers said Tuesday.

The street fight was the culmination of years of antagonism between monks from the two temples who had often exchanged curses, insults and rude gestures as they collected alms on different sides of a road, the Manager newspaper said.
