Hello Kitty Gangster Car

It’s not often that the initial reaction of my wife to something with the evil feline on it is one of puzzlement, but that is exactly what her reaction was when she saw the Hello Kitty gangster car. She sat silent for several minutes studying the photo before looking at me and matter of factly stating, “But the car isn’t even cute.” I think this is a first that the evil feline has failed to cutify (I know, that isn’t even a word, but I know I’ve heard Hello Kitty fanatics use it before) something she has been placed on in the eyes of my wife…

Hello Kitty Pick-Up Truck

Since there are already way too many Hello Kitty cars out there – everything from Smart Cars to minivans – it should be no surprise that a Hello Kitty pick-up truck is roaming the streets terrorizing all those unfortunate enough to see it. I guess it makes sense. The Hello Kitty fanatic needs a place to put her Hello Kitty shotgun

Hello Kitty Spaceship

If you have followed the blog for any length of time, you know that I have said time and again that the evil feline is trying to take over the world. One would assume that this statement would be sufficiently broad to cover all the havoc that Hello Kitty wants to create in her never ending quest to turn everything a Pepto Bismol pink, but I now see that I have vastly underestimated her plans. Welcome to the future of space travel in the Hello Kitty spaceship:

Hello Kitty Worst of and Weekly Photo Dump

I received the following question in my email the other day:

What are the worst Hello Kitty products out there?

“Everything?” would be my immediate response. That being said, many of the things that I personally find horrifying never seemed to raise much of a ruckus among the readers here and the Hello Kitty fanatics — well, let’s not even go there. I guess my life has become so Hello Kittified that I have a hard time distinguishing between Hello Kitty bad, Hello Kitty worse and Hello Kitty worst. So here’s a challenge/question – what are the top three worst Hello Kitty items I have listed on this blog (yes, I know there are a number of items even worse that I have not listed, but I try to keep this blog semi family safe) and why do you think so?

I’m hoping that some of you will be able to put together a rational explanation that I can give to my wife to show her that some of this crap is downright crazy — all while not getting me sent to the couch in the Hello Kitty sleeping bag for the rest of the month. Yeah, I know. It isn’t going to work, but I have found that deluding myself that there is hope of one day escaping from Hello Kitty Hell makes the Hello Kitty toast and coffee go down easier in the morning…

Here’s this week’s Hello Kitty photo dump:

Hello Kitty Bus

You would think that the one time that I could somewhat escape Hello Kitty Hell is when my wife and I take weekend trips around Japan. Yes, there will be the evil feline in every store and shop we walk into, but at least I can escape for a short period as we actually travel. That, of course, assumes that the Hello Kitty fanatic doesn’t know about the many Hello Kitty buses that dot Japan (which my wife most definitely does):

Hello Kitty Anna Paquin Beach Cruiser

It’s never a good day when a celebrity is caught showing off some type of Hello Kitty product and then that photo is sent to me. In the mind of the Hello Kitty fanatic, this somehow legitimizes Hello Kitty. This is my wife’s reasoning — if Anna Paquin is riding around on her Hello Kitty beach cruiser, that must mean that Hello Kitty beach cruisers are cool because even the celebrities want to ride around on them:

Hello Kitty Honda Car

The problem with living with a Hello Kitty fanatic is that at some point that find yourself in a Hello Kitty car (unfortunately, in all likelihood the car in questions will be owned by your significant other which means that it is also your transportation some of the time). While my wife is doing her best to turn our car into the ultimate Hello Kitty monstrosity, she is not alone in this pursuit:

Hello Kitty Camper

The weather is getting nicer and when you’re in Hello Kitty Hell, the number one priority is to get out of the house and as far away from the Hello Kitty mess inside as possible. That, of course, was my thinking when asking my wife to go camping, but it seems that the evil feline can’t even leave the great outdoors in peace with the existence of the Hello Kitty camper:
