Thanathorn: We will dig up the Khana Ratsadon to overthrow them! [meaning Thanatorn will use the rallying point of the overthrow of the absolute monarchy in 1932 to topple the present government]
On the grave: Khana Ratsadon 2475
Army chef: Khana Ratsadon? Ha… ha… must see this…
On the grave: Boworadet rebellion 2476
Caption: Digging up history to fight each other

[Refers to the fight between two groups–those led by Thanathorn’s group and royalists led by the military.
While Thanathorn’s group was trying to commemorate the 1932 coup which overthrew the absolute monarchy, army chef Apirat promoted the Boworadet rebellion led by Prince Boworadet who attempted a counter-coup one year later.]
