Taint Misbehavin' on the Mekong

Fly fishing photographer Mike Dvorak and his fellow “boat punks” decide on a most risky venture down the Mekong and find a particularly apt moniker for their untrustworthy vessel: the Tainted Nipple. “The name was selected in reference to a cautionary tale about Thai prostitutes who would rob johns by applying knockout drugs to their nipples. ‘Given the number of people who doubted and advised against our river journey, it was only a matter of time before “the Tainted Nipple” became the obvious and unavoidable choice of name for our boat,’ Bruce Shoemaker would later write.” Mike Mosedale in Minneapolis-St. Paul’s City Pages.
