When the last king is strangled with the guts of the last priest, the world will be free

When in Luang Prabang last we toured the Royal Palace, kept up and run for tourists by the government complete with immense paintings of the last Royal Family by the best Russian painters. As the regime had exterminated the Royal Family not all that many years ago I was curious as to how they squared this with their current royalism-without-the-king, and asked at the souvenir desk (selling small reliquaries and medals with icons of the King) "And where is the King now?"

The gentleman behind the desk said "They had to leave the palace. Bad feng shui."
