Princess Sirindhorn's Year of the Snake humour

Princess Somdej Prathep Sirindhorn has just issued her own New Year's Greeting Card for the Thai people -- with a touch of humour. 2013 is the Year of the Snake. The princess urges the people not to know anything "snake, snake, fish, fish" -- Thai slang for "half-baked knowledge" or gaining only superficial knowledge about anything.
She asks the people to gain "real knowledge" and avoid only touching the surface of things.
