Do you guys remember this character, Kero Kero Keroppi? I used to love him when I was a kid–don’t know why. Something about his simple, cross-eyed smile I find very endearing. I used to do all my school homework using notebooks and pens with his insignia on it. Anyway, he completely slipped my mind for about 23 years until a couple weeks ago, when I found a Burning Man art car parked near my house with a Kero Kero Keroppi stuffed doll sticking out the back of the truck bed. Odd, I thought. A few days later, the truck was gone and Keroppi was found hanging by the neck from a tree near the local burrito joint. I thought about rescuing him, but I was driving, and couldn’t make a clean stop.
A few days later, he was gone. Assuming he died or was stolen.
