MONK #1: hey what does it look like when two people who love one another hug
MONK #2: oh god just awful, it looks awful
like one of ’em is a knife just splitting into the other one’s skin
MONK #1: dang


MONK #2: or theres another way
MONK #1: of hugging?
MONK #2: yeah
only your chins and one knee touch
and you make your face miserable
and lean away as hard as you can
so those are the two main basic kinds of hugging that there are
MONK #1: like this?
MONK #2: yeah exactly


MONK #1: oh that reminds me

MONK #1: oh remind me what jesus looked like again
MONK #2: protractor and a compass mixed together with a head on it
MONK #1: right right


MONK #2: oh and also don’t forget he was mostly made of eyes
MONK #1: who
MONK #2: oh yeah
like 80% of his head was just his eyes
like a possum
