Rice farmer and the cobra

From Thairath, February 8, 2014
Cartoon title: Rice farmer and the cobra (the abnormal version) [‘Rice farmer and a cobra’ is an Aesop Fable of a rice farmer who saved life of a dying cobra who is dying from cold weather by keeping it warm in his arms. The warmth from farmer’s holding makes the cobra regain its strength, and bites the farmer before slithers away. The poor farmer dies of the cobra venom.]
Head of cobra is Suthep Thuagsuban, secretary-general of the People’s Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC).
Suthep: Tweet, tweet… Love rice farmers so much.
On cobra: PDRC obstructing the rice pledging project expecting to topple the fovenment
On bags, front to hind: Preventing the government from borrowing from banks to pay the rice farmers; Obstructing rice trade
On paper behind rice farmer: Asking for money from rice pledging project
Phi Nooring: Hypnotizing tweet.
Mouse: Hurting rice farmers
