New Year’s Cartoons I: Mutant Cow!

From Matichon, January 1, 2021
Title: 2564 We have to fight with a mutant cow.
PM Prayuth hold out a frayed cape. On the cape: Severe disease and economy
Boy: Please stay safe, Thai people

[2021 or B.E. 2564 is the year of the cow (or oxen) according to the Chinese zodiac. Thai people are facing the resurgence of COVID-19 causing economic impact.

Note: Due to the decline of print newspapers, there are hardly any traditional Thai new year editorial cartoons. Today, the ones that are left are simply regular cartoons with some broad comment on the year’s biggest story.
In the past, every newspaper featured a big cartoon on the front page with caricatures of all the major political personalities and news-makers.
Examples of these are here: New Year’s Cartoons 2004-2020.
In particular, take a look at 2008 for how many there were and how they all showed caricatures of the year’s big personalities: 2008 cartoons.]
