One might argue that fate had it in from the start for Mr. Karoshi; the word karōshi translating directly from Japanese as death from overwork, a miserable way to go if you ask me. You wouldn’t name your cat Mr. Roadkill and you certainly wouldn’t name your first-born child Mrs. Measles. And yet here we are in the company of Mr. Karoshi who wants nothing more than to smash his own head in with a brick. It’s almost poetic.
