Cornered rhino…

Caption: Cornered rhino… is scarier than a [cornered] dog
[In Thai, if a person is referred to as a “cornered dog” means he or she is going to fight viciously (similar to English-language sayings). Rhino is pronounced “raed” in Thai which also means “slutty.” This rhino is supposed to be Caretaker Premier Yingluck Shinawatra and thus refers to her as “slutty.” People lying covered with blood are meant to be the anti-government protesters.
