Readers' Emails

Dear Sir/Madam,

I’ve never been one to keep up with the latest trends and fashions. I don’t watch TV, haven’t got a radio, have never read a newspaper, and have no idea what Lady Gaga is. In fact, I’ll freely admit that I don’t have a clue about anything! I used to work as a High Court judge, if you’re wondering!

Anyway, since my retirement I’ve been trying to catch up on all that I’ve missed via the fabulous world of the interweb, or whatever it’s called, and have found it to be an incredible and wondrous place - I can’t believe nobody knows about it! It was there that I was first introduced to yourselves to the concept of kawaii. With all this spare time on my hands, and being in desperate need of a way to fill it, I’ve decided I’m going to popularise the kawaii cause via a process I like to call kawaiification! Here’s my first attempt…

Kawaiified duck!
As you can see I have kawaiified a duck by drawing a big eye on it. I’m looking to expand beyond ducks for future kawaiifying projects, but thought you might like to see the results of my initial tentative steps into this new and exciting pastime. I reckon it could really take off - like the hula hoop or something!

Yours sincerely,
Mr. Justice Smithering Smythe (retired)

Wow! Thanks your honour! It’s great to hear from such a well respected figure in society, and what a great idea too! I think your process of kawaiification could be the next big thing!

Thanks for sharing,
Ed Mascot :)

P.S. I’m reliably informed by the Mischief Mascot that Lady Gaga is a children’s entertainer who sings - kind of like a rambunctious clown!
