Valentine’s Day is Different in Japan

It’s not all that surprising that Hello Kitty has teamed up for a Valentines’ Day promotion with the Hooters restaurant chain in Tokyo, because, you know ... Japan. But look at the thing Hooters Kitty is promoting! The “Volcano of Love” parfait is a two-foot Eiffel Tower of calories that will set you back $30. If you’re one of the first 1,000 couples to order it, though, you do get a free pin featuring Hello Kitty in a sexy Hooters T-shirt and hotpants. And we think “Toddlers & Tiaras” is inappropriate.

Hello Bad Music!

Do you know why Hello Kitty doesn’t have a mouth? Because she speaks from the heart……awwww….She also serves as a strangely unsmiling conduit for your I-Pod or MP3 player. Yep. It’s a little Hello Kitty speaker ($50 on Amazon or…take your chances on eBay), complete with USB plug/charger and almost accurate volume button. She may not speak out loud, but she allows you to use her in indecent musical endeavors like blasting “Return of the Mack,” or anything by Taylor Swift.
