From Thairath, December 2, 2017
Left: Prayuth’s 5th cabinet starts its first day of working and we can see that they aren’t better than…
Soldier: …other cabinets we even had.
Man on the right: How did you know?
Right: They don’t have their self-confidence. So, they have to pay respects to holy things to help with with their work.
[Refers to PM Prayuth’s latest cabinet reshuffle creating the fifth iteration of his cabinet.
We think the joke is that the new cabinet does not have the capability to do well in their posts so they have to pray to help them achieve their work.]
