Nov 29th, 2017 Animation, Fantasy Marcus Goh 11 min read

Human beings are just… gross sometimes. Hair grows in the wrong places (shaving is an unfortunate reality for all genders, it’s just a matter of frequency), good taste seems to elude certain members of humanity, and we ooze so many disgusting body fluids when we’re sick.
