    Personally, if I am going to be shot, I would prefer to be shot with a “Hello Kitty” gun.

    Frankly, I’m appalled. I have no idea if this picture is a photoshop job or a real gun. If the gun is real, I hope the Hello Kitty image not something approved by Sanrio (hard to imagine it would be).

    I believe in the right to own firearms, but making them look like toys is just too much.

    Stick to the vibrators, HK.

    I think it is a special weapon made by someone in Hong Kong. I don’t think it is licensed.

    Hello Kitty Toaster

    How about a toaster instead? The Hello Kitty is burned into the toast!

    I thought I saw that gun on Something Awful‘s Photoshop Phridays before, but I could be wrong.

    Here’s an interesting site about Hello Kitty Weird Products. I like the HK teeth at the bottom of the page.

    Tom, the HK toaster is intriguing, but I prefer my toast very light. The toast in that picture looks burnt–I wonder if the image shows up on a lower setting.

    Dave, I hope you’re right about the Photoshop job. The Hello Kitty teeth are great. Even more so because…


    I still have 3 baby teeth, and there are no adult teeth under them. For years, dentists have said, “they’ll fall out any day now.” Since I’ll have to spend a small fortune on fake ones anyway, why not go for the gusto and get Hello Kitty teeth!

    Oh, and please don’t tell me the Hello Kitty teeth are photoshopped. I will cry.

    Most people’s competition .45’s are completely and totally customized. This is, essentially, just how somebody modified their “race gun”. It’s the equivalent of making a hot rod, and then slapping a Dragonball Z sticker on it.
