The big news in business this week is from Sanrio, the Japanese company responsible for that bow-wearing, moon-faced cartoon cat that adorns all types of merchandise. On the low end, economically speaking, you can find Hello Kitty pencils, socks, and band-aids. Going up the scale, you've got your choice of a waffle iron (a bestseller at $43.49),
a Fender guitar ($229),
or diamond earrings,
which will set you back only $2,150.00. (Valentine's Day is coming, guys.)
Believe me, I so wish I was making this up.
Anyway. The big news. Sanrio is going to offer a line of Hello Kitty products for men, which will include a black t-shirt with a picture of the cat on the front, selling for $36.
Dude. Here's a tip. DO NOT WEAR THIS SHIRT IN NORTH TEXAS. If you insist on getting beat up, save yourself the $36. Get a white t-shirt, and use a Sharpie to write something on the front, like
- "Go Vegan!"
- "I just can't quit you, Tony Romo."
- "John Wayne wore women's underpants."
- "I still Y the Dixie Chicks"
- "Pickup trucks suck. Real men drive scooters."
