A review by talisencrw

By talisencrw

This was hilarious. It makes you understand, in an instant, why children reflexively scream when they're taken to get their hair cut for the first time, as well as why all the really smart people, like Pink Floyd in their heyday, always grew their hair so long. As well, it should make all prospective parents think twice before naming their sons Oliver.
