Short or Long Horns?


From Manager, May 28, 2013
A long horn red buffalo: I support Chalerm’s amnesty bill.
A short horn red buffalo: I don’t support his bill.
Title: They both are buffaloes… only the length of their horns is different.

[Refers to the controversial amnesty bill proposed by Deputy PM Chalerm Yubamrung. Although there is an internal conflict among the members of the Pheu Thai Party on his bill, many people believe that the multiple bills are a tactic to confuse the Red Shirts and get full amnesty passed. What is the significance of the different length horns?
To call a person a “buffalo” is an insult meaning they are stupid. Here it is used to refer to the pro-Thaksin Red Shirts.]
