Thai innovation

From Thairath, March 3, 2018
Left: On Tomb Sweeping Day, we will see Chinese people burn silver and gold papers for their ancestors.
Middle, god on the left: But Thai people are more modernized.
God on the right: How modernized?
Right: They can withdraw cash in the name of dead people from the poor center.

[Thais of Chinese descent burn ceremonial paper items to send to their dead ancestors. The joke here is that Thais do something like this by fraudulently stealing funds intended for the poor.
This refers to a recent scandal that found, among other things, money being given to and withdrawn by poor people who were long dead.]
