Emergency Gadget


With a number of natural disasters hitting Japan lately, my wife decided that we needed to do some better preparation in case something happened in our area. While I agreed that was an excellent idea, I also knew that it would likely become a Hello Kitty Hell nightmare. Since my wife has already bought us Hello Kitty fire extinguishers, I wasn’t sure I really wanted to know what else she would find in her preparation of our safety. It didn’t take long before she decided we both needed one of these:

Hello Kitty emergency gadget

Hello Kitty has decided that the world needs a high tech version of the Swiss army knife for a generation that has more important things to do than open a can in an emergency. What is a person to do if their cell phone battery dies?

Sanrio’s solution is to create a 126 gram emergency gadget that does the following for the high tech world we live in:

1. USB cell phone recharger

2. LED Flashlight

3. AM/FM radio

4. hazard siren

5. compass

It can also be used with a 9v battery

Of course, my wife feels that it is not only necessary for her to carry one of these around, but I should also carry one in case of an emergency.

wife: “Hello Kitty will always be there to save you!”

me: … (thinking: this must be part of the Hello Kitty Hell conspiracy – instead of letting me just die and putting me out of my misery, Hello Kitty will come to my rescue so that I have to endure more Hello Kitty Hell to the point of trying to commit suicide, where once again Hello Kitty will come to the rescue and we’ll start all over again…)

I have to say that there really is nothing more unmanly than going into a store and taking the change out of your pocket to pay for something, and have a Hello Kitty gadget flop out on the counter. The store clerk looks at the gadget, then looks at you, then looks back at the gadget, then again at you with a look of “are you some kind of pervert?” It doesn’t matter how hard you try to explain the reason you have it, anything you say just makes you look more pathetic…

I think that I Hello Kitty Hell will be more bearable if I take my chances of an untimely death rather than continue to carry this around…

    Did anyone collect the Garbage Pale Kids cards when they were at school? (That dementedly sick spoof of the cabbage patch kids). Maybe a series called Goodbye Kitty is in order; getting brutalised or interfered with by a dog, suffering from some form of nasty tape worm that sort of thing.
    Just an idea.

    I must say, I am sooooo jealous of your wife right now. She lives in Hello Kitty heaven, so much so, I’m begging my husband to find work in Japan! I think your wife should post a blog of her own so that she can pass along the info on where to buy this and all items Hello Kitty. Yes, she would be contributing to the crazies like me, but hey, at least we are happy!

    honestly,

    i am not at all a big fan of hello kitty… and i am definitely not a big fan of pink,
    but that item seems like a pretty useful one to have around.
