My Kind of Logic

I like this kind of logic, but I can see these armbands being collectors items on eBay by the end of the day.

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. The armband is large, bright pink and has a Hello Kitty motif with two hearts embroidered on it. From today, officers who are late, park in the wrong place or commit other minor transgressions will have to wear it for several days. The armband is designed to shame the wearer, police officials said. (link)

"(Hello) Kitty is a cute icon for young girls. It's not something macho police officers want covering their biceps," Pongpat said [acting chief of the Crime Suppression Division]. (link)

You can create your own artwork at the Hello Kitty site (link)

And just when you think you've seen everything, there's this Hello Darth Vader image. Warning, do not click if you are of a nervous disposition. I warned you.
