On man’s shirt: Taxpayers
The red buffalo (representing Thaksin): Harder, harder! My sis [meaning PM Yingluck] needs many more trillions for her buffaloist policy.
The caption reads: In this country, humans have to work for the buffaloes.
[In the Thai world, referring to a person as a “buffalo” is an insult that denotes stupidity and has been used to refer to Thaksin’s Red Shirt supporters. The joke here is that the government is massively overspending to make good on its populist election promises. These policies directly target rural Thaksin supporters.]
