Military officer: There are only these two in Thailand, Gen. Prayuth. Meechai is in business for a long time. For Witsanu, he was an apprentice at Meechai’s shop. But he opens his own shop now.

[Gen. Prayuth Chan-ocha is the junta head. Meechai Ruechuphan is a former deputy prime minister and former speaker of the senate. Witsanu Khruangam is one of the country’s leading law experts. He is also former deputy prime minister in the Thaksin government. Both have experience in re-drafting Thai constitutions over the years. This cartoons refers to the junta’s apparent decision to assign former Thaksin appointee Witsanu to be responsible for drafting a new Thai charter.]
