Doctor: Exposed to the yellow wave… their hearts exploded to death!!!
Caption: The phenomenon of the day before yesterday… causes death to quite a few buffaloes.
[To refer to a person as a “buffalo” is an insult meaning they are stupid. Here it is used to refer to the pro-Thaksin Red Shirts.
The “yellow wave” refers to hundreds of thousands of people who wore yellow shirts and gathered at the ground in front of the Ananta Samakom Throne Hall to have an audience with His Majesty the King on the occasion of HM’s 85th Birthday Anniversary on December 5. The red buffaloes’ heart exploding means they were shocked and disheartened by the large show of support for the monarchy.]
