This made my day, yesterday.
I actually found these Hello Kitty shirts to be pretty cute! Almost as cute as Gene Simmon’s twelve inch, ummm, tongue. With that said, these shirts, available exclusively at WeLoveFine, are damn adorable. I see that Miss Kitty has really been promiscuous as of late. Not only is she at Target and my corner grocery market (I’m not even kidding, check the candy aisle), but she’s also been caught on Johnny Cupcakes tees and now on WeLoveFine. That damn pussy cat needs to control herself.
The Hello Kitty x KISS Collection is available now from WeLoveFine and are priced at $25 a shirt.
“It’s time to rock ‘n’ roll all night, and kawaii every day!: The first six designs in the Hello Kitty x KISS Collection are now available online exclusively at WeLoveFine.com! From Detroit Rock City by way of Tokyo, Sanrio’s beloved flagship character joins forces with the legendary rock band KISS for an appealing mash-up of heavy metal cool and irresistable cuteness; WeLoveFine.com has the first apparel offering with t-shirts priced at $25 each.
It has been over 50 years that Sanrio has delighted the world with an assorted cast of adorable characters, though for decades Hello Kitty has held strong as the most popular and enduring character of all. Meanwhile, we are just shy of the 40th anniversary of KISS’s debut album; the heavy metal heroes have commanded one of the most dedicated fan bases in the history of rock with the KISS Army, and continue to amass more fans as time goes on. The unexpected match of cute and cool sensibilities makes for an amazing visual flair in the Hello Kitty x KISS collection – a co-branded license collaboration, making these products both official Sanrio and KISS merchandise! Plus, the one thing which both Hello Kitty and KISS fans unquestionably have in common is their passion for collecting all manner of awesome memorabilia featuring their favorites; with a variety of designs up now and more to come, WeLoveFine anticipates that this apparel line will be an must-have with collectors in both fan groups!”
As long as there is an Internet there will be dozens of mis-spelled cat memes floating around. Let’s face it, the cat is the official mascot of the Internet. No one or thing is bigger than those furry felines of mischief roaming InternetLAND. Well, maybe Double Rainbow Guy. Don’t be fooled though, everyone in the know acknowledges that Double Rainbow Guy is actually a cat disguised as a human. It’s the same cat that’s behind the Nyan Cat Phenomenon. Trust me.
I’d love to hear which one of these are your favorites and whether or not you own any of these tees! And if you know of a LOL Cat shirt not on this list then please tell me about it. Leave a comment below in the comments section and let me know!

Who knew that a a pop tart cat would lead to over 50 million views on YouTube. This age that we live in, unbelievable. And of course, you can help to quench its growth by purchasing a Nyan Cat T-Shirt from Snorg Tees. The shirt is called Cat + Pastry = Rainbow and is available now Snorg Tees for $14.95.
And now some Nyan Cat history. It all stared with a little comic by prguitarman on LOL-COMICS. The comic was then reblogged on Tumblr over 3000 times. And then it led to a viral YouTube video (see below). And as they say, the rest is history.
Via Know Your Meme: On April 5th, 2011, YouTuber saraj00n posted a video titled Nyan Cat, using comic artist prguitarman’s Pop Tart Cat animation set to the well-known Japanese Vocaloid song Nyanyanyanyanyanyanya by Japanese artist Daniwell-P looping in the background, Although the song had been originally composed for Hatsune Miku to sing, The version used in the video was of the cover sung by the Utauloid Momo Momone.
When I first spotted these kitten heavy T-Shirts made to look like other clothing garments, I surely thought that they were a joke. Needless to say, I delved deeper, jumped into the rabbit hole and found out that these LOL worthy kitten tees are indeed real and made by Deli Grocery, purveyors of Deli Grocery Specialty Products.
This unique brand based out of Brooklyn, New York, offers an alternative to the played out faux tuxedo tee (we’ve seen those a thousand times over and then some). Instead, they offer two options, a classic button up and a western themed version, both decorated with kitties that any fan of the I Can Has Cheezburger network of sites could be proud of. That wrap around bandana on the blue tee is a nice touch, don’t you think!
Though bordering on bizarre, both Deli Grocery tees have a unique character. It’s up to you to judge whether or not that character is worth $30 a piece.
