We’ve seen various cute avatars of Hello Kitty in form of makeup, food, superheroes, and even breast implants! However, not in my wildest dreams I would’ve thought that Hello Kitty can be used as a punishment! Cruel, right! Police chiefs in the Thai capital, Bangkok, have come up with a new way of punishing officers who break the rules – an eye-catching Hello Kitty armband. If officer parks in the wrong place comes to work late or drops a bit of litter, that officer would be decorated with an armband depicting the Japanese symbol of cuteness. Apparently, this new move might make them feel guilt and shame and prevent them from repeating the offense, no matter how minor.
The twist in the tale is guilty officers will be made to wear the armbands in the office for a few days, with instructions not to disclose their offences. Let people guess what they have done. Finally, Hello Kitty has grown up and taking up responsibilities!
