Me perdonas? and its misspelled forms (meperd0n as¿ or meper d0nas?) refer to a shitpost image macro of a cat’s face edited into the sky of London that is used to apologize to other online users. The image is usually accompanied by the phrase “Meperd0n as¿” and a copypasta from the chorus of the song «Un Siglo Sin Ti» by Chayanne. The name “Me Perdonas” is also used to refer to the cat edit as a character.
If I’ve failed you, I ask for forgiveness in the only way I know how: by opening the doors of my heart for when you decide to return. I just want your friendship.
