Nettles and Milk

A sympathetic apple saw fit to share this video with me yesterday, seeing my fascination with Nettles hasn't yet diminished. It was my first exposure to Salad Fingers, who seems to hail from the same long shadows which have issued such bat-winged things as Eraser Head, Edward Scissor Hands, Tales of the Gimli Hospital, and The Kingdom.

My father brought up Milarepa (the nettles eater) yesterday during ritual father's day well wishing. Here I am a fan, and I had no idea he was as well, in particular of Milarepa's abundant songs, for which some compare him to St. Francis. The apple falls close to the tree.
