Note: Sanrio legal counsel has contacted me because they realize that their fans are not bright enough to know what is an official Sanrio product and what is not. They didn’t feel that this would be a problem until the fans started contacting them directly, and they soon realized how painful it was to actually have to converse with a fanatic, and not even they had the patience to actually do this. As a result, they sent out a notice to me begging for me to take down my posts about guns that had the evil feline on them just so they didn’t have to ever correspond with the fanatics again. When I explained that they brought it on themselves, they pleaded that I spare them the torture that they inflict on me on a daily basis and asked me to post the following, Since I actually have a conscience, here is what they have to say:
Sanrio® has informed us that Sanrio is not involved in the manufacture or sale of Hello Kitty guns or weapons, and does not allow Hello Kitty® to be used to market guns or weapons. The items shown in this post are either digitally fabricated images or were custom-decorated without Sanrio’s permission. Sanrio alleges that creating false digitized images of Hello Kitty guns or weapons, or custom-decorating a real gun or weapon with Hello Kitty art, infringes Sanrio’s copyrights and trademarks, and may violate criminal laws.
And onto the original post…
It really is pretty pathetic when the character who is supposed to spread love and happiness to all has so many Hello Kitty gun models out there that she could start her own army — and that it’s gotten to the point where seeing a new gun isn’t really a surprise anymore. Even more disturbing, you know that there will continue to be more and more because the evil feline will brand anything to earn an extra buck. So one might make the mistake and imagine that we’d seen the worst when it came to the one with no mouth and firearms, but anyone who has followed this blog knows that doing so merely means that you’re deluding yourself because it appears that she is now looking to produce a line of Hello Kitty tipped bullets (far more terrifying than any hollow point bullet)
Note: Due to a DMCA copyright notice from the lawyers of Sanrio, we were forced to censor this image
You know that there was someone at Sanrio that thought, “Hey, what’s the best way to spread all that love that Hello Kitty offers? Maybe if we put her on bullets, we could literally shoot her into people’s hearts. Wouldn’t that be great? I mean, if people are going to kill each other, they might as well do it with the love of Hello Kitty. And as a bonus, we can make more money!”
Just one more thing to fear living in Hello Kitty Hell…
