Hello Kitty Robomop
In Hello Kitty Hell one would imagine that it couldn’t get worse than having Hello Kitty on every shelf constantly staring back at you in your home, but then that would be once again underestimating the evil feline. Now I have to constantly watch where I walk so that I don’t trip over my wife’s latest addition to her ever growing collection: the Hello Kitty Robomop:
This is basically a Roomba which has been Hello Kittified and made for Japanese households (which rarely have carpet) using a Swiffer sweeper like pad instead of a vacuum. All I can say is that it’s extremely annoying as it slides across the floor bouncing off walls and purposely trying to trip me. I would drop kick it at the first chance if I knew doing so wouldn’t lead to banishment on the couch in the Hello Kitty sleeping bag for the next week (and even this prospect is quickly fading as a deterrent).
I have come to the conclusion that there is something in the Sanrio company charter that explicitly requires them to Hello Kittify the most annoying products possible to drive those of us who are sane to the edge. Either that or they are sitting in their offices reading this blog saying to themselves, “OK, that didn’t get him to off himself. What other horribly annoying gadgets can we find to Hello Kittify in our next attempt to do so?” Either way, the results are the same as I live in the eternal damnation of Hello Kitty Hell…
