Moko came to visit the SUPERBLOG!! offices in Falun a while back. I was telling him all about the history of Falun, all the corrupt city officials and stuff, and the town's peculiar mayoral tradition. The position of mayor was finally eliminated in 1997, but up until then they held great power in all of the Dales. Mayors were expected to wear the Key to the City around their necks at all times, even while taking a shower. Their main tasks included collecting local taxes, often personally, and attending important ceremonies, such as public executions (before they were outlawed in 1990, when the Wall fell).
Moko was very impressed with all this, and artistic that he is (not autistic, although he might be that as well), he took one of my Post-it notes and sat down and started to draw the picture above. I was immediately angered by this, because Post-it notes aren't cheap, and it looked like he was just vandalizing them for no good reason.
"What the hell are you doing?!", I shouted. "Stop immediately!"
He put down his pen and handed over the artwork. It was almost finished anyway.
"I drew this for you", he said, hesitantly. "I was so inspired by your great story. Is this anything like what the mayors used to look like?"
"No", I said, trying to let him down gently. "You're a terrible artist".
