WHAT?! @hellokitty is not a cat?

Ok, I know there’s a lot going on in the world today so this may not be a big deal to some (well, probably to anyone) but I just don’t get it.

Am I to understand that this beloved character who has pointed ears, apparent whiskers, a button nose, paws and a tail and whose name is KITTY, is in fact not a kitten nor cat?

Though I don’t feel this warrants the ‘Breaking News’ status I’ve noticed it’s been given on some notable news websites, it is somewhat shocking to hear.

So, if I have this story straight, Hello Kitty is a little girl with a hairy face and possibly elf like ears?  It just doesn’t make any sense.  But one thing I will say, it’s a great example of how ‘one should never assume anything’.

I just had to share this because now I’m questioning my childhood memories.  I mean, what is a Smurf anyways and I don’t recall ever seeing Strawberry Shortcake ever bake a cake.  Come to think of it, what was Rainbow Brite really up to? And why did Inspector Gadget get all the praise when Brain and Penny did all the work?

Well, such is life I guess.  It took 40 years to find out that Hello Kitty isn’t a cat, I wonder what the next 40 years will reveal?  Perhaps I’ll find out that Jem wasn’t truly outrageous? That can’t be true. I just don’t know.  Fade to Black.
