I wasn’t entirely jesting when I stated that I was concerned that Courtney Stodden’s 2012 “Hello Courtney” video, which was themed as cross between Hello Kitty and Nekomimi, was going to sour America on Nekomimi – as well as emotionally scar many women who grew up with Hello Kitty.
Fortunately, there’s a plethora of evidence to support the theory that these memes are more than robust enough to survive Stodden’s unusual sense of sexy and appropriate. 😉 So Harōkiti Futatabi (Hello Kitty Again).
Courtney Stodden, B List (I’m generous, OK) celebutante wannabe, loves attention and she knows the best way for someone of her limited talents and even more limited self-esteem to get it.
Hello Courtney, Goodbye Kitty – And Some People’s Childhood
I suppose there’s nothing quite like ruining Hello Kitty for all time to get Courtney Stodden some of the attention she craves. She’ll certainly be remembered for all time by those girls and young women of the right age for her to have just permanently scarred their memories of their beloved childhood toys. 😛
Of course, Stodden may just be trying to break into the Japanese market, a common course of action for those who aren’t “making it big” in America. Japan, after all, is the nation that invented the Neko or Nekomimi girl fetish in the first place and it’s been a cosplay standard – and sometimes lifestyle! – in Japan for decades.
I think, however, that Courtney’s “sweet” scenes coughing up a hairball and using the litter box 😯 are going to turn off the Japanese. Hellfire! She might have just ruined Nekomimi as well as Hello Kitty.
It’s not my normal practice to lampoon the words and/or actions of those few people trying their damnedest to stave off the dissolution of America and to protect its beleaguered economy from further rape by America’s domestic enemies, nor is it in my nature to use their words as a basis for puns. Some things, however, are just too good to pass up.
A bit of humor, even a pun, is good though, lest we take ourselves, rather than our cause, too seriously. And besides, how often does anyone get the chance to see a whale shark being hand fed?
