Sorry, it's not funny

An army commander is "deeply unhappy" with the doctored combo picture of his superior on the cover of Manager Weekly which hit newsstands on Friday.

Mimicking the three lead characters of the highly rated love-triangle soap opera Samee Tee Tra, the cover shows a man with the face of army chief Gen Prayuth Chan-ocha flanked by a woman with caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck's face, and another person who looks like Suthep Thaugsuban, secretary general of the People's Democratic Reform Committee.

Gen Thirachai Nakavanich, Army Area 1 commander, did not find the cover funny, said a source. He reportedly said the picture was an inappropriate display by an organisation claiming to be in the mass media.

"Gen Prayuth is a highly respected figure in this country. He's in charge of national security and is respected by army personnel," he was quoted by the source as saying.

"It's not right that anyone can claim he's a public person and do this."
