Kitty going mobile

“Eve never pleases me,” sang the Brothers Gibb, “and Kitty can.”

In fact, Kitty will even let you drive:

smart fortwo with Hello Kitty package

In an effort to boost sales, the importers of the smart car have introduced various “Expressions” packages, including custom paint and vehicle wraps. Among the latter are Hello Kitty designs licensed by Sanrio and reproduced on 3M vinyl. Pricing starts at $1,700.

I suppose an Eve package would have completely unadorned body panels.

    Do they make a big windup key you can stick on the roof of the car? Because that’s what those smart cars make me think of. Or rather more like some toys my brother and I had growing up, where you pulled the car (or the mouse on wheels, or whatever) back and somehow friction charged a spring so when you released it, it ran forward. But never very far….

    I’d rather have one of the – heh – “body kits”.

    Yes, but how much does it’s trunk hold? If there even is a trunk… that might make it harder to use the dead body unit of measure… :o)

    Maybe the trunk is measured in Hello Kitty bodies?

    You say you want a wind-up key?

    Okay, it doesn’t stick on the roof, but you can’t have everything.

    I would so drive that Hello Kitty car just to annoy the ever living shit out of people. Fact.

    Gawd! The comments are just as funny as the post. Go figure. I’ve got to find out what kind of blog Laura has because I really like the way her mind works!

    Laura is unique. In fact, she’s probably more unique than all the other unique people you know. Combined. Fact.

    I want one. Even if it is the size of a tennis shoe, it has Hello Kitty on it.
    This is how much I love Hello Kitty: if they ever make liver and onions that looks like Hello Kitty, I would eat a bite of it.
    Yes.
    That much.
    Might spit it out after after, but still…. the point remains.

    I thought only Japanese hipster girls buy that Hello Kitty crap.
