Hello kitty

Do you realize how long Hello Kitty has been around (1976)?  Did you know the character was originally introduced in Japan and has since become one of the most recognizable fiction characters in the world?  She has stores devoted to her.  Online sites devoted to her. She's become so ubiquitous that one guy devoted a blog to her (which you can now find on my blogroll, because the concept is brilliant.)  

I'm pretty ambivalent towards Hello Kitty, but I suspect I would feel quite differently if Little Missy ever became enamored with her and my house was inundated with her image.  Thankfully, I've been spared (*looking for wood upon which to knock*) ->
