Am I the only one who's completely fed up with this whole Hello Kitty thing? Apparently the Japanese have gone so wild for this that they are now even fabricating car exhaust pipes in the image of their unforgettable feline fetish.

But really, is Hello Kitty an acquired taste, or do you have to be from a certain era or part of the world to get this? What am I missing? It's just tacky. To hell with Hello Kitty. I say, Good-bye Kitty.

I wear a Hello Kitty watch, and own an HK toaster, waffle maker (which I use occasionally), and some other stuff. Yes, I lived in Japan shortly after HK first came out, but I like it because it's not about screaming in your face "I'm a Goth!" I'm a Nerd! I'm a Slut!" or anything else. It doesn't stand for anything but being cute.
