They’re not pants, they’re an ASS CAGE. It’s not a vacuum cleaner, it’s a CHOKING ROBOT. It’s not an alarm clock, it’s the METAL AWAKENING. It’s not a door, it’s a WALL COFFIN. It’s not a freezer, it’s a DINNER SARCOPHAGUS. Those aren’t stairs, that’s a MUTILATED FLOOR. That’s not a toothbrush, it’s a MOUTH INVADER. That’s not a phone, it’s a VOICE PRISON. That’s not a teakettle, that’s the LEAF COMMUNION. That’s not a spice rack, that’s a FLAVOR CATACOMB. Those aren’t Band-Aids, they’re SKIN LIES. That’s not a sink, that’s a PIPE VOMITORIUM. That’s not a comb, that’s a HAIR PIERCER. That’s not a duvet, that’s a TAXIDERMIED BLANKET. That’s not a litter box, it’s CAT SHIT JAIL. They’re not boots, they’re FOOT CORSETS. That cat isn’t fixed, he’s INTO HARDCORE CASTRATION BODY MODS.
