    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?

    "Sonic Screw Sword! Go!"
