Ostrich: Hey duck, what are you afraid of and why do you stick your head in the sand like me?
Duck: Afraid of going to the 3 southernmost provinces.
Caption: The same instinct of the two birds.
[Refers to the criticism of Deputy Prime Minister Chalerm Yubumrung over his fear to go to 3 southern provinces despite being in charge of policy for the area. He was called a duck by Yellow Shirt leader Sondhi Limthongkul to refer to the Thai saying that a duck can do everything, but not do anything well.]
