I saw this picture on the internet and I find it really amusing so I want to share it.



Oh yeah, that's Dora the Explorer on a mugshot. Weird, eh?


But according to some articles, pictures like this depict irony or protest to the new controversial Arizona's Immigration Law. They're being used by those who oppose or support the law.


There's also a Facebook page called "Dora the Explorer is soo an Illegal Immigrant."



Dora's mugshot may seem funny, but it actually has a different meaning and it is intended for a debate on a serious issue. In fact, this is not the first time for a cartoon character to be dragged into some serious debate. According to huffingtonpost.comIn the late 1990s, Tinky Winky the Teletubby, a purple children's TV character with a triangle antenna – was called out by Christian leaders for being gay. Sesame Street roommates Bert and Ernie are often involved in statements on same-sex marriage.


I think cartoons must be Rated PG from now on. And btw, I love Spongebob but I think he's gay, is he? Oh nvm. hahaha
