Hello Cougar contest

Hello Kitty has been around the block a few times. As a result, on episode 149 of Gadgettes, we asked for photo submissions of the more appropriate Hello Cougar. Here they are!

WINNER!

Obviously Coreen took some time conceptualizing a mascot that will carry Hello Cougar well into her golden years. The curled whiskers. The baggy eyes. The clutch, pumps and smoking cig. Well done, Coreen. Well done.

Runner up

Not quite sure what it was about this submission, but we laughed every time we looked at it. This was a close second place.

Hello Kitty fused with the character from Bravo's Real Housewives series. Those wrinkly eyes tell a story of lust and revenge.

Sassy, colorful and ready to meet some young studs, I suppose. Perhaps this one didn't make the cut because Kitty still seems pretty... kitty... and not quite Cougar. Just give her a few years. She'll get desperate, you'll see.

Evan definitely went the more literal approach. This was the only submission that seemed to replace the face of Kitty with that of Cougar. We also couldn't help but get a little creeped out looking at this one.
