Pink Guns, That’s right: For the Ladies.
Yes, we know what else this lovely pink thing looks like. But this silicone sculpture of a hot pink cannon is part of an exhibit that includes a larger grouping of the identical sculptures (see photo below) from an exhibit at the Ankara Galeri in Turkey. From what we gather courtesy of Google Translate, the exhibit, which took place in late 2011, was called Generation of Defense. Very Nice!
Because nothing says “Weapon of Mass Destruction For Girls” quite like Hello Kitty.
I guess this gun comes in handy when you have a Hello Kitty overload and want to either blow your brains out, or kill someone.
One of my very favorite time-waster websites is Hello Kitty Hell, a ridiculously fun and snarky blog which was previously featured here on The ‘Gig. Today’s Hello Kitty Hell featured post is – of all things – a Hello Kitty Taser Gun, “because nothing shows the true cuteness and sweet side of Hello Kitty — and the love and happiness she brings to all — like 50,000 volts of electricity streaming through your body.” One commenter noted that this product surely must be a Photoshop job, so I decided to do a bit of sluething myself. First, I did a Google search for “Hello Kitty Taser Gun” to find out if this is a real product or a Photoshop job, as claimed. While I did get quite a few page hits on the product, they ALL appear to link back to Hello Kitty Hell as the source article. I also did a search on Sanrio’s (maker of Hello Kitty) official online store and it turned up zero results for the product. Lastly, if you take a look at this link you’ll see a taser gun exactly like the one pictured in the HKH post, minus (of course) the Hello Kitty Logo. My conclusion: this is indeed a very entertaining post, but likely a Photoshop job, nonetheless.
