Caption -- Two American men who were reportedly honeymooning in Thailand were detained after they shared photos of their exposed butts taken at two famous Bangkok temples.

The pair, Joseph and Travis DaSilva of San Diego, both 38, were arrested at Don Mueang International Airport in Bangkok on Tuesday, just days after they uploaded photos of their bared backsides to Instagram, the Bangkok Post reported; the photos were taken at Wat Arun (The Temple of Dawn) and Wat Pho temples.

"They were detained as they were about to leave Thailand," said Col. Cherngron Rimpadee, an immigration police spokesman. The colonel said the couple were on a "watch list" after their social media posts caught authorities' attention.

"Once they are through with the charges, the Thai immigration police will revoke their visas and push for deportation," he said, according to the BBC. "They will also be blacklisted from coming back to Thailand."

He added that the two men admitted to taking down their pants and posing for photos at the temples.

The DaSilvas were charged with getting naked in public and fined $150 apiece. However, some Thai officials have told the media that there could be more serious charges. Officials are now seeking court approval to prosecute them on the Computer Crime Act for uploading pornographic pictures, Col. Jarupat Thongkomol said from the police station near the temple, Agence France-Press reported. They could face jail time.

Hey, those two could apply for jobs at ABC, CBS, NBC, NPR, congress, and of course - Hollywood.
Billions and billions of opportunities there.

Let’s hope Trump doesn’t work too hard getting these two dopes released.

Dear President Trump,

Please don't get these two idiots out of jail like you did the college basketball players. At 38, they're well-enough old to know better.

Let them rot.

Signed,

Despite what many outsiders think, Thai people are modest and respectful. You must dress appropriately and show respect when visiting a temple.

I say throw the book at 'em.

“I say cane ‘em.”

Agreed. They like their bare asses out so cane those beauties until they are hamburger. If they pass out have a doctor wake them up and resume the festivities. Probably a couple of democrat CA fruits.

That’s in Singapore ... a bit south. But your point is well taken.

Barred for life after some time in a Thai prison ... I’m ok with that.

What used to pass as Thai prison humor was to stick a prisoner in a rattan ball with inward facing nails, then roll it in front of an elephant.

Once the elephant got bored with kicking it around, it might step on it.

A little caning might be in order here. Not for the bare butts but for being just plain stupid.
