We now travel to Bangkok, Thailand where we will translate the language of embarrassment.
Yahoo news reports that Thai police committing minor offenses, such as littering and arriving late, will now be punished by being forced to wear Hello Kitty armbands for several days.
Talk about an effective punishment.
And although the language of embarrassment is perhaps the most poignant and universal vernacular, further punishment is necessary for policemen who commit more serious crimes. For example:
Cops found turning to the Dark Side will be forced to wear the Hello Kitty Darth Vader suit.
And cops caught exceeding the speed limit within city limits will be forced to cruise the streets of Bangkok in the Hello Kitty Ferrari.
I totally understand the language of embarrassment. You can bet that Bangkok's police force will soon be one of the world's most disciplined and well-behaved, because that Hello Kitty is one frightening little feline.
I know that I would be terrified to be seen with her on my arm in public. That would be Hello Kitty hell.
How about you?
