Covered in flowers

From Manager, March 11, 2014
Man standing: When we go out to fire M79s at the mob… why do we have to put flowers on ourselves like this?
Man on motorbike: The P.M.’s order… she said it looks softer this way. She doesn’t want to scare off tourists.
Caption: Must tell these guys too.
[Reference is to the Caretaker Premier Yingluck Shinawatra who recently asked Gen. Prayuth Chan-ocha, the Royal Thai Army’s Commander-in-Chief, to make the Army’s bunkers set up at more than 100 points around Bangkok to look softer so that they do not make foreign tourists scared. The joke of the cartoon is that those who fire grenades at protest sites at night are really scarring people and creating a sense of fear, so they should put flowers on themselves as well.]
