Hello Kitty demonic toilet paper
The Cartoon Brew has a picture of new “Hello Kitty/KISS” toilet paper, blending the Japanese cartoon character with Gene Simmons’ demonic-image rock-music label.
Unexpected licensed merchandise of cartoon anthro stars are nothing new. There is the Spongebob Squarepants child’s rectal thermometer, for example. Most of it is for children’s products, though.
Not Hello Kitty. The mouthless one, Kitty White, was created as a little girl’s merchandising icon by Sanrio Ltd. of Japan in 1974, to appear on school notebooks, junk jewelry, coin purses, and the like. Today those little girls have grown up, and want Hello Kitty on adult merchandise.
There have been a Hello Kitty sex vibrator, real gold and diamond jewelry, computer equipment, and an electric guitar. Several banks offer Hello Kitty bank cheques and credit and debit cards. In Taiwan, there are a Hello Kitty restaurant and a Hello Kitty maternity hospital. There is a Hello Kitty $5,000 robot (marked down to $3,999.99) for the mother who needs a baby sitter.
And now you can wipe your ass with a beloved, albeit demonized, anthro animal.

How could we have missed the all-pink Hello Kitty AK-47 automatic assault rifle!?
Came here to post that... :)
There a big collaboration between Kiss and Hello Kitty including T-Shirts and Plushies
Still the toilet paper got me puzzled.
Oh yes I am big Hello Kitty fan.
Don't forget the Hello Kitty condoms.
Well shit, if they put that on the market, I might actually buy some.
The only time I use Hello Kitty is greeting one of my fur friends.
Interesting as this is I don't understand it. What's the appeal with putting cute pictures on toilet paper? There's a brand over here that has cute puppy pictures but why would someone go, "Aww, that's so cute. I just want to rub it all over my dirty arse." It seems just a little odd. Rather print pictures of things people don't like.

Maybe not quite as weird as the toilet paper, but this picture has been making the rounds for several years:
You ever go to Yardsellr? They have A TON of these products on there, Hello Kitty everything.
