Further information

The orange hue of love is too much for my heart, its radioactive power seeps into my bloodstream and I metamorphosise into a giant mandarin-coloured bull. The excess power moves through my colon and comes out glowing like a bush doofer lost in the woods.

Family and friends are important, don’t ever forget that. Otherwise, I’ll break down your door with horns sharpened on the stone excalibur was taken from and impale you onto the wall like the trophy of a woolly mammoth resurrected from ancient permafrost to be hunted again. All I mean is, tell them you love them.
