Experts are warning that Cambodia is suffering from a wide spread epidemic of SMILING. It is suspected that the vast majority of 16 million Khmer people have the condition.
The origin of the pandemic is unclear and especially unexpected considering that Cambodia is one of the materially poorest countries on earth. Visitors are warned that the condition is contagious and prolonged exposure to Cambodians who are exhibiting SMILING SYMPTOMS could result in visitors also SMILING on return to their homelands. SMILING is rarely fatal.
