New Year’s Cartoons II: Savage Cow!

From Daily News, January 1, 2021
On the sign: Happy New Year
On the cow: Savage cow

[Refers to the new year of 2021 or B.E.2564 (Thai writing: ๒๕๖๔ at bottom left).
According to the Chinese zodiac, this year is a year of cow (or oxen). People are pinning their hopes on vaccines to stop the spread of COVID-19.

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.]
