It should be no surprise that Hello Kitty will Kittify anything sweet since there are already confectionery shops devoted to the evil feline. So I really should have been more prepared when the Hello Kitty ice-cream arrived at our house the other day:
Normally I’m a huge fan of ice-cream. I would think that if anything was to be Hello Kittified and I would have to eat it, Hello Kitty ice-cream would be one of the least evil substances that I would have to consume. Of course, this was based on the bad assumption (yes, I should be well aware by now…) that Hello Kitty would simply place her face on the packaging and the ice-cream would taste like other ice-cream. Nowhere did I imagine I would have to eat the ice-cream with something other than a regular spoon. There is just something extra humiliating that takes all the joy out of even ice-cream when you have to eat ice-cream with a pink bow as a spoon.
Of course, my wife thinks that the bow spoon is the “cutest thing ever” and the crowning extra bit that makes the ice-cream so wonderful. This, of course, sent off the panic alarms because when you live in Hello Kitty Hell as long as I have, you know exactly where this type of comment is going. She is now convinced that all our meals will be more fulfilling and tasty if they are eaten with Hello Kitty utensils. As has been well established, Hello Kitty Hell can always get worse…
