Makes me wonder, did they ink up Jesus and put him through a roller for the shroud of Turin too?

It worries me that I'm numb to the violence, gore, and promiscuity so frequently found on the internet, but the sight of an adorable teddy bear getting manhandled with a residue-leaving rolling pin and sent facedown through a torture device upset me incredibly.

Teddy bears are symbols of love, comfort, and innocence to me. Is seeing their objectification symbolic of all the pains of growing up or something?

Those prints are really cool, but the process of making them is like the world's cutest horror movie.

I assume one soaks them in turps to get the ink off. Oh NO! NO SMOKING MR. BILL!

I thought for sure they'd slowly take out all the stuffing while rolling until the bear was absolutely flat. This was even worse.

It's like a MRI or X-Ray of a bear.

And the rabbit. *sob*

This isn't right.

Because of the post title, I now have the obvious thing stuck in my head. Thanks a bunch.

This was WAY more interesting than I thought it was going to be. Nice find!

I wicked. I showed this to my, um, friends, and told them that's what happens to plushies that don't do their chores! Bwahahaha. Ever watch a cheetah chase down dust bunnies?
