  Music:"Where are we going? Why am I in this handbasket?"


Although a Hello Kitty toy might not seem quite as dangerous (read: life threatening) as the notebooks and cellphones we're toting these days, the explosive tendencies have somehow veered from batteries to stuffed animals. In the latest episode of spontaneous combustion, Takara is being forced to recall specific Hello Kitty dolls which featured a heatable disc that could be warmed and stuffed within the lining to keep kids toasty while resting. Apparently the microwavable pad housed a chemical substance (manufactured by ADEKA) not quite stable enough to handle the heat, sparking a lengthy list of of cases where the liquid erupted from its container and provided an uncomfortable surprise to the poor soul embracing the creature's volcanic warmth.

I'm hoping Disney will see this valuable marketing opportunity and release a "Special Suicide Bomber edition Mickey Mouse", complete with cute little dynamite belt and autographed photo of Osama bin Laden...

Matel could release a Jihadi Martyr Ken. Waiting for him in heaven are 100 Barbies without genitalia.
