Hello Kitty: Deterring Wrongdoers since 1975

This story cracks me up: the BBC reports that minor infractions among Thai police officers are now being punished by forcing the offenders to wear bright pink Hello Kitty armbands for a few days. I guess Hello Kitty denigrates their manhood, or something? In any event, I'm glad HK is getting the crime-fighting recognition she so richly deserves. Found via GNLIB-L.
