Hello Kitty turns 30

It started as a cheap icon on a purse in 1974. Now it has made Sanrio over US$1 billion and polluted anything that moves since. She has no mouth and has a male friend, Dear Daniel, with whom she has an ambigious relationship. Even worse, she has gone from a kitchy marketing icon into a mental disease.

Happy birthday, Hello Kitty. Now be a good cat and die.

Update: Holy Internet, Batman. Hello Kitty has a friggin' blog, according to Joi Ito.
