On the assumption that we are not fooled by a very well made photo manipulation (and partially even if it is so) then this analysis:
The flamethrower at the front right looks like the Hirsburner model with the big nozzle (or are you one of the habitual kissers of Monica?). I guess you can tell some VERY convincing stories through that horn.
The statue behind would be of an Indian god, not sure which one, but we would have onboard experts on that topic.
If it is Shiva ("Shiva is frequently viewed as the destroyer of the world prior to each period of dissolution") he might hint, that he considers you an unfair, at least towards him, competitor in the earthquake business, suggesting you to mute down.
If it is one of the kinder Indian gods, then he might demonstrate distrust to the geologists, that allocate some disastrous Californian low frequency problems to the San Andreas Fault. He suggests another culprit, also asking you to mute down.
The more down to earth interpretation(-s) would be:
Some of your collegues find you outdecibelling them. If the god is a photomanipulation mounted on thin cardboard, then these collegues would be found among the strings. If the god is out of a thin plastic shell, then these collegues would be found among the woodwinds and French horns. If the god is cut in stone, then you are into real problems, because then these collegues would be found among the heavy brasses.
Anyway your findings represent a very good joke (and please don't take the implied hint)!
Are you celebrating some special day in your life?
