Look, I know I’m not the tidiest eater in the world. It’s kind of difficult to help it, though, when you see what I have to go through to get my dinner. Imagine, Human, that to reach a bowl of rice, you first have to forge your way through a head-high pile of styrofoam pellets. That’s why I look like this all the time. It’s not like I can use chopsticks. I mean hello, no thumbs. Besides, I evolved to do this job. Can you reach half your body length with your tongue alone? Yeah, I bet you’d be willing to walk around covered in pollen if you could. Dirty Human. Now step aside please, I have children to feed and that lens is starting to tick me off. In case you forgot, I have a sting.
