Growing up was interesting for Jojo as a kimono raised in the Western world. Jojo's parents were migrants from Japan, but she was born in the glorious city of New York. She loved her heritage and appreciated being raised with two cultures, however in addition to her Japanese-esque wide sleeves and lack of buttons, she wanted her body to represent her American side too. Therefore Jojo decided that she'd tattoo herself in technicoloured cats (inspired by Chester Cheetah, the Cheetos cat) to look more obviously American. Despite this drastic creative effort, people still spoke extra loud and enunciated their words carefully whilst speaking to her. "But I thought I looked super patriotic now!" thought Jojo. Turns out that Cheetos are not the national dish of the United States of America. Wikipedia had misinformed her. Classic Wiki.
Rafi was a snow leopard that rolled in a field of pre-sucked (i.e. already been in someone's mouth) MnMs. He later retired from his career as a surgeon to become a women's button-down shirt.
