From Thairath, June 22, 2013
Left: A: When I grow up, I will be an abbot.
B: When I grow up, I will be a captain flying a plane over your head.
Middle: A: You cannot fly over my head.
Right: Because I will hire you to fly my private jet.
[This refers to Luang Pu Nenkham who was criticized for flying on the private jet. The joke is that the supposedly humble monk will have a metaphorically higher place in society as he will be rich enough to hire a pilot to fly him around.]
