Please do not pelt the prime minister with eggs when he comes to use your calamity for a photo backdrop.
Before the former army commander visited the south on Thursday to tour flood devastation, residents this morning were given a list of prohibited behavior, including throwing rotten eggs and scolding the famously thin-skinned PM.
The rules were announced by police in Nakhon Si Thammarat on Thursday before Gen. Prayuth Chan-ocha’s afternoon visit to survey flood prevention plans there. The four rules forbade locals from “throwing eggs or rotten eggs” at the prime minister, scolding him in vulgar language, burning a portrait of Prayuth or any member of the royal family and posting the photo of Prayuth on social media.
Those who disobey the rules will be prosecuted, the post warned.

Why the sudden concern he could be targeted by flying food products?
Just last week, unhappy residents in the riverside Tha Nam Non community pelted his motorcade with water bottles and fermented fish. A similar incident took place when he popped into Chaiyaphum, where he was berated by a group of people.
It seems like a good time to point out that members of the public have been charged in the past, and even abducted by soldiers, for writing satirical songs about his excellency, sharing memes making fun of him or bringing up the cost of his wife’s handbags.
