If a normal picture is worth a thousand words, this one must be worth ten thousand.
The picture was posted on nytimes.com. Supposedly taken during during a clash of current Prime Minister supporters, and those demanding his resignation, I think it looks more like the scene from a Broadway musical. Are we looking at the Thai version of the Westside Story? Are these the Jet's or the Sharks? If we can agree that that is what we are looking at, then my next question is, where is Maria, or would it be Mae-Pia in this case?
Lastly, why does the gentleman in the foreground appear to have whiskers painted on his face? "Cats: Thai Revolution" anyone?
I think the cocked spear in the background adds a nice touch in any case.
Crossbow- ohh don't tell me you guys forgot the crossbow!
