How cute.


Saying how they cannot wait to show Singapore’s new prime minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam what they have done, Singaporeans from all walks of life who like Snoopy have uploaded numerous Peanutized cartoons of their leader onto their own Facebook accounts to share with friends and family.

This after The Peanuts Movie launched a website to allow anyone to create caricatures of themselves in the trademark style of Peanuts characters.

One Singaporean, Cha Lee Lau, said this rush to make a caricature of Tharman Shanmugaratnam shows the close bond he has formed with the general populace: “I was very excited the moment I saw the Snoopy-Charlie Brown website. The first few caricatures I did were of Tharman Shanmugaratnam as I wanted to show my friends and family what an inspiration he is to me.”

“And I wanted to be the first to do it so I can share on all my social media accounts.”

Other Singaporeans said they are glad they have been given this honour to be able to turn Tharman Shanmugaratnam into a cartoon for keepsake.

Wu See Hock, another local, said: “Everybody must Peanutize their own Tharman Shanmugaratnam if they really love Singapore.”
