Coconut shell land


From Thairath, November 3, 2015
Title: The city of the future
On the door: Coconut shell land
Phi Nooring: Building up by freezing the country
Mouse: Have you asked us yet? [meaning “has the junta asked the people?”]

[This refers to the Thai idiom, “a frog in the coconut shell.” It means there are people who believe that they are know everything but, in fact, they know little because they are isolated. The cartoon claims that the junta government governs the country without listening to the outside world.]
