    ./' I see a burger and I want it painted black ./'

    God, would you get a look at the sad state of fast food products these days, with their stupid preppy yellow cheese and their red ketchup? They're such conformists. If you consider yourself beyond all that gross consumerism, then Japan's Burger King has the perfect thing for you to rebel against those other sandwich-sheeple while still getting to actually participate in gross consumerism anyway.

  5. Update: Hello Kitty Isn’t a Human, Either

    I can't take much more of this.

    Yesterday the Internet (save for hardcore Sanrio fans—you'll have to forgive the rest of us) flew into an existential frenzy as it was revealed by a Hello Kitty historian in a LA Times interview that the famous Sanrio character is not to be referred to as a cat. But then... what is she?
