- Cupcakes, rainbows, and murder?! If this could turn into a Robot Chicken sketch, I'm sold because recently, publisher Harper Collins pulled out most of the Hello Kitty Dictionary inventories after a complaint from a British mum regarding a "murderous description". The word in question from the Hello Kitty Dictionary is "necklace".

necklace noun (1) a piece of jewellery which a woman wears around her neck (2) In South Africa, a name for a tyre filled with petrol which is placed round a person's neck and set on fire in order to kill that person
Uh-oh...Looks like with that murderous description about the "necklace" word, it seems this dictionary is too inappropriate for the little girls.
