    Li and Qin He ? Chinese ?
    You'll never see the French from ESMA produce such surreal disturbing shorts. I guess the chinese sensitivity is still sort of allegoric, second degree. Whereas French/western sensitivity can't tolerate a tale such as this because of Descartes's dualism and a realist movement in literature from the 17th century.

    This is purely rubbish. Swallowing the seed wouldn’t have initiated for it to grow because the stomach acids would’ve neutralized it. A seed needs SOIL and weather to grow, nothing can grow in stomach acidity.
    I realize that this is just a damn sketch for any fool who’s actually wondering whether or not I know the difference between reality and a C.G.I sketch.
