Title: The World is shock!! Children’s dream is gone when the company reveals that Hello Kitty is not a cat.
Left: Shocks the world
Above Hello Kitty: It is not a cat.
Right: Shocks Thailand.
Above the democracy monument: It is not a democracy.
[This contrasts the news from Japan about the nature of the Hello Kitty character with the nature of the military government in Thailand.]

Mother: The fact is it is not a democracy, but it’s a girl.
[Another cartoon on the same theme. This mimics the news on Hello Kitty which revealed that the character is not a cat, but a girl.]
