I accidentally read that as "Book Of Breasts" and thought wait...hadn't Playboy already existed for decades?

[this is (very) good]

This reminds me of the best of the early internet weirdo comedy and also a bit of SCP when at its most surrealistic highs. Formula, brevity, disquiet. I'm in love.

This is very good and gives me a sort of unexpected sadness, like when you wake up with a cold after going to bed feeling fine.

But in a good way.
