After my last correspondence (Re. A Gallery of Geeks!) I thought I would continue my trawl through the archives to see if I could uncover any further embarrassing photos of your kawaii colleagues. I was hoping to find a picture of Sweet wearing a bobble hat, or perhaps a snapshot of Punk sporting some flares. What I was not expecting to find was this…
Who, in the name of all that is kawaii, are these two oddballs supposed to be? And why, in the name of all that is cute, is there no mention of them whatsoever in any of the KawaiiPunk websites or shops? Are they an elaborate prank orchestrated by that pesky Mischief Mascot? Are they a couple of rogue mascots who’ve chosen to go solo? Or are they kawaii ghosts intent on who knows what? I simply must know the answer!
Yours hopelessly helplessly, Buddy Rockford
Well Buddy, I suppose the truth had to come out some time. And, in a way, I guess I should thank you for forcing my hand. Those are the Tiger and Mermaid Mascots, and they were sacked during the 2009 makeover for… well… just not being very good basically! Still, it does make you wonder how the Unlucky 13 Mascot made the cut :)
