From Komchadluek, November 7, 2013
Left, PM Yingluck Shinawatra speaking to Thaksin: I checked. Only a bit over 30,000 protesters came out to chase you away… Brother Sin!! [“Sin” means “Thaksin” – sometimes in Thai, the last syllable of the name is used as a nickname]
Thaksin Shinawatra: Only 30,000. How shoddy! Ha ha!
Right, Yingluck: Yes… just a bit over 30,000, and 500,000. Ha ha.
Thaksin: Alas! My sister…
[The misreading of the number is a mockery of Yingluck’s misreading of a set of numbers while she was giving her statement on the 2012 annual budget to the parliament on November 9, 2011. Yingluck opponents often cite her verbal gaffes.]
