@neauoire Totoro Coming Out of his Hedge to Shame Mankind

@phooky At every mouth he with his teeth was crunching
A sinner, in the manner of a brake,
So that he three of them tormented thus.

@neauoire which translation are you using? I grew up with the Dorothy Sayers version; this has a very different feel.

@phooky That's from Wadsworth's, but I'm most familiar with Goodfellow's

@neauoire I'm watching Outlaw Star and this reminds me of the episode titles' style 😄

Digging the style!
