What’s Up Pussy Cat…

In case you haven’t noticed, I find pornographic references or images, which are not meant to be so, quite amusing. I’ve had several posts regarding found porn and they’re listed below if you’d like to visit them. This, however, was disturbing even to me.

I recently purchased a package of underwear for my granddaughter. She was spending the week with me and my son-in-law packed her bag…and not accordingly (eh-hem, two pairs is not enough for a week…just sayin’). So we hit the local El Target’, where the options were ‘Dora’, ‘Princess’ or ‘Hello Kitty’. She chose ‘Hello Kitty’.

I didn’t give her choice a second thought until I opened the package….


…because seriously? Who gives underwear any more thought than washing them before they’re worn and washing them in between? That is until you see underwear being marketed for small children with a logo with such a double meaning? (If you connected the dots then don’t judge me for posting this and if you didn’t…let me connect them for you. ‘Kitty’ is easily translated to ‘Pussy’.)

Last year I sent a letter to the Dannon Corporation with my opinion of one of their products and posted about it. I’d have no problem sending another letter to the people that market children’s products, but alas there are too many. Therefore I’ll just have to settle for printing it here…


Dear Marketing Person(s),

While sucking every possible dime from the sale of DVD’s, video games, board games, toys, clothes, cereal, snack foods, backpacks, etc. for whichever company you work for that base their profits on the children of our society, can you please use your ‘well rounded’ college degree(s) and display some degree of common sense?

Now I know you didn’t ask for my opinion, but I’d like to just shove it down your throat none the less. Can you please just use one iota of common sense and realize that there are some childhood themes that may not be the best choice to display on the crotches or asses of our youth; here are some examples to name a few:

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Curious George
Dora the Explorer
Goldilocks
Kim Possible
Little Miss Muffet
Little Red Riding Hood
Moby Dick
My Little Pony
Owl and the Pussycat
Peanuts
Peter, Peter, Pumpkin Eater
Quick Draw McGraw
Ride-em-Cowboy
Rocket Ship
Sleeping Beauty
Snow White
Speed Racer
The Secret Squirrel
Woody Woodpecker

Respectfully,

Linda a/k/a Nana


SPLAT!…that would be me falling off my soap box.

I connected the dots right away, but that's just because my brain works that way!

I guess you're sick mindedness is starting to rub off on me (no pun intended, lol) because I got it right away.

Why is it that men don't think ahead? I think next time he goes on a trip, Nikki should make sure she only packs him two pairs, lol
