While this blog is not in ANYWAY intended to be profit-driven, I feel compelled to create a page featuring a listing from my online store that was deemed offensive. I have since removed it, but feel it would be a travesty not to have a record of this misunderstood piece of satire. And satire it is, in the truest Jonathan Swift sense. For posterity’s sake, here it is.
When the opportunity affords itself, I set aside time to tackle some of life’s more vexatious questions. The list of questions laid before me is quite long and includes:
* Where is the godd**ned remote?
* Why can’t my husband put his dirty clothes in the laundry hamper?
* What did I do to deserve this?
* Why doesn’t Sanrio make a Islamic fundamentalist Hello Kitty doll? I have seen French Hello Kitties, Brazilian Hello Kitties, even Hello Kitties dressed up like The Statue of Liberty, but alas, there was no gun-toting, Koran-quoting, burqa-wearing Hello Kitty to be found anywhere!
I decided that if such a doll didn’t exist, it should, and set forth with my 20+ years sewing experience to make this happen. The results were so glorious that I feel compelled to help others achieve the dream of having his/her very own Jihadi Kitty.
The deal is this: You provide me a Hello Kitty plush doll and I’ll custom-tailor a burqa to conceal her shameful body parts. I’ll even toss in a gun or make her a suicide bomber (obviously not using real explosives) if you wish.
Have a Badtz Maru or other plush laying around that you want transformed into an Islamic extremist? NO PROBLEM. I’ll make him (or her) over as Osama bin Laden, Muqtada al-Sadr, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. Whatever you want.
Obviously, I will have handle your requests on a case-by-case basis, but if you have a 9″ Hello Kitty plush (like what is featured here) the Burqa will cost you $25.00. Add $5.00 for suicide bombers or additional weaponry.
P.S.: Live outside of the USA? Contact me and we’ll see what I can do for you in regards to shipping and logistics.
