Wordish Wednesday: Hello? Kitty?

posted in: Humor, Obsessions, Wordless Wednesday 0 comments

Some folks take obsessions a little far. Like this driver, who had Hello Kitty paraphernalia everywhere. I counted 5, I kindly highlighted them for you below.

Close ups!

 That is a Hello Kitty-shaped exhaust pipe, people. Wait, what?

This was hanging off the tail of the car. Wait, what?

    Haha!! Never liked Hello Kitty – I’m hoping my girl won’t go crazy over it one day!

    Wow. Just wow. That does seem to be a bit extreme.

      It was totally extreme. And? The driver was a DUDE. With a beard.

      • July 21, 2011 Crystal

        WTF? SERIOUSLY??? That’s just…strange. Wasn’t expecting the dude with beard part!

    A Hello Kitty fanatic!
    My little girl loves hello kitty, when her dad visit Japan for a business trip. He definitely goes and checks some Hello Kitty stuff from a Hello Kitty store (my daughter has a thoughtful dad indeed). He bought, a Hello Kitty’s lunch box set, hk mini umbrella, hk chocolates, some stuff hk toys and hk stickers. My little girl really loved it all.

      Exactly, little girls love Hello Kitty. The driver? Was a bearded man.

  • July 20, 2011 BusyWorkingMama

    Haha, that’s a bit overkill on the kitty!

    Holy crap! That is a dedicated fan! At least they don’t have a giant Hello Kitty obscuring their back windshield. I had no idea they even made some of those things.

    • July 21, 2011 Alison

      A true Hello Kitty fan will scour the universe for paraphernalia. At least, that is what I have come to believe 🙂

    I’m just glad that Hello Kitty on the bottom of the car did not also have Truck Nutz – please tell me that you’re spared this probably only American abomination?

      Hahahaha! A pink HK motorcyle takes the cake. I have no idea why such devotion!

  • July 20, 2011 Julie

    I love that you took this pic! I often want to photograph passing cars and highlight the freakishness.

    Like the guy with 287 anti-Obama stickers. Or the redneck with the brass balls hanging from his truck.

    That exhaust pipe takes the cake though.

      I know right?? We were waiting at an intersection and I happened to have my camera! It was meant to be. Are those brass balls known as Truck Nutz (as Suniverse referred to in comment earlier)?

    (also, hilarious!!!)

    this definitely beats out the older woman i saw recently in a head to toe hello kitty track suit.

    My mom’s best friend LOVES Hello Kitty! Though, I don’t think she has it all over her car!

    • July 21, 2011 Alison

      Your mom’s best friend is a girl so it’s somewhat acceptable. The driver of this car? Was a bearded dude.

  • July 21, 2011 Kristin

    OK, that’s just plain creepy.

    And it doesn’t help that I find Hello Kitty kinda creepy to begin with.

    • July 21, 2011 Alison

      Would it creep you out more to know that the driver was a dude? With a beard?

  • July 21, 2011 Minka

    Seriously — this person shouldn’t even be allowed on the road. Then again, if sanity were a criteria for receiving a driver’s license, the roads would be a lot less congested. Hmmm…

    DANG!! That’s a whole lotta kitty!! And it’s just the car! I can only imagine what the house looks like. I bet they have a kitty room without even having an actual kitty! CREEPY!! *shudder*

    I mean I love my wine, I even collect it…and decorative wine glasses, but you don’t seem me decorating my vehicle with pictures of wine glasses, or wine bottles. Ha!

      It is kinda creepy right? The driver? A DUDE.

      I would find a car with a wine theme much more acceptable!

  • July 21, 2011 Missy

    I just put a “tri” sticker on my car and it almost killed me. I almost ripped it right off, because I hate putting stuff on my car. Not so much because I don’t want to mess up my car (b/c it’s hard to mess up a kajillion years old car), but more because it seems very personal to have anything about my identity broadcast all over the road.

    So, clearly, I find the Hello Kitty car a bit much. But I enjoyed it thoroughly, all the same!

  • July 21, 2011 Kim

    Did you check out the steering wheel? They probably had the Hello Kitty cover on it! And the front seats? Probably the Hello Kitty seat covers were there, too 🙂 This Hello Kitty craze with adults and children a like is weird. We have a couple Hello Kitty DVDs and they aren’t anything extraordinary. She’s a cute kitten (with no mouth), but I just don’t get the obsession! My daughters certainly like her though!

    My dad travels for work all the time and ends up in China several times a year. He always brings Hello Kitty pajamas back to the states for his grand-daughters, and showed us a picture of a Hello Kitty phone booth that I think was in the airport there. He was telling me Hello Kitty is HUGE in China. I think it’s kind of funny. 🙂
