OK, there is some debate among ourselves, but I am officially classifying the theft of Peko-chan statues as a trend.
Why? I state my case:
- This has been going on for a long, long time.
- There have been 10 cases in Wakayama prefecture since January alone.
- Now the yakuza want to cash in, as well. You know it’s a reliable source of income when the mob want a piece of the action.
So what’s the big deal with these over-sized bobble-head dolls anyway?
