I am made out of water. You wouldn't know it, because I have it bound in. My friends are made out of water, too. All of them. The problem for us is that not only do we have to walk around without being absorbed by the ground but we also have to earn our livings.

I once saw a double feature of Mondo Bizarro and Mondo Freudo. I thought it meant "world" in Italian.
