PHUKET:-- Phuket has a new mascot named “Nong Joong”, a gender-neutral child spiny lobster without claws, Phuket Governor Phakaphong Tavipatana announced yesterday (Sept 15).
 

The news was delivered at an event held at Limelight Avenue Phuket shopping mall in Phuket Town, often selected by local government officials to hold press conferences and make public announcements.

 

In announcing the winner of the Phuket Mascot Design competition, Governor Phakaphong was joined by Phuket Provincial Administration Organisation (PPAO, or OrBorJor) Acting Chief Watcharin Patomwattanapong, President of the Phuket Tourist Association (PTA) Bhummikitti Ruktaengam.

According to the photo he also gets 100,000 baths.

And speaking of photos, you can find a photo of the article's subject if you keep looking. It's kinda lame though.

Spiny lobsters don't have claws anyway,well tiny little ones.

"a gender-neutral child spiny lobster " this must be a joke,

a 100,000 THB joke.

Uhhh, really? A mutated lobster is suitable to represent Phuket? 

 

I wonder what it looks like. I would have thought this announcement would be the perfect time to show the world Phuket's strange-sounding new mascot.
