I am a CARTOON in a HUMAN BODY by StrawberryR I am a CARTOON in a HUMAN BODY by StrawberryR
Day after day, I feel like I'm living a lie. I just can't keep my emotions bottled up any longer.

I...am a cartoon.

Now I know this sounds wacky, but hear me out.

Ever since I was a little boy, I've known I was different. When I looked in the mirror, my eyes always seemed so small when I knew very well they should have been at least 3/4 of my head space. I always sprung up with each step, and my hair would move around depending on my mood. I would flail my arms and get large drops of sweat when I was overly excited, and I often saw action lines around myself when I ran.

This is why I've had a crush on Jem this whole time; we're both cartoons. I've also been practicing this secretly, but I can turn myself into a cartoon. When I turn on the TV and play zany sound effects in the background, it just...happens. A sensation wooshes over me and everything changes, and there I stand- a beautiful, inked, colored cartoon with simplified details and sharp, beautiful lines. One day I will join my cartoon brethren on the Television and we will live happily ever after, thirty minutes at a stretch, with regular commercial breaks.

If you don't like this, you don't have to like it. You can always change the channel and get rid of me. All I ask is that you respect the fact that I am a cartoon trapped in a dreadful human body, and that some day, my beautiful four-fingered, large-eyed form will be complete. I will find out how to STAY a cartoon, and then who'll be laughing?? ME! So FUCK OFF HATERS.

If you can't get that this is a satire, I feel so sorry for you.

Deep within this prison of flesh, blood, and bone is paint, ink and graphite - what I'm really made of
I shall contain myself no longer
From here on out, all shall know of my true form - a two dimensional drawing repeated over several sheets of paper with slight variations

(i get that this is a joke)

People actually genuinely un-ironically no-joke-I'm-dead-bloody-serious responded seriously to this? Astounding. I would be more surprised, but... Internet's a weird place.

When I first saw this stamp, I thought you were serious. I can't believe the many comments that actually think they're cartoons in human bodies despite what you said at the bottom of the description. XD

I kind of act like this, but I think it's due to my Autism. I don't actually believe I'm a cartoon. ^^;

I salute you, fellow trapped-toon! Someday the world will understand what we go through, living in a world so deprived of zany-ness.
I'm just so glad I'm not alone!

(No. There are a lot of people here who are either really good at satire or are actually cartoon-kin. It's upsetting if the latter.)

(people who think they're cartoons in human bodies for real. Like how "other-kin" are people who think they're wolves, or anime characters, or some crap like that. It's probably some form of Schizophrenia for all I know.)

The funny thing is seeing what you said at the bottom and yet all of these comments... Oh my gosh. I have a feeling even if some of the commenters saw it they wouldn't understand what satire means anyway. No offense to their intelligence but...

Yeah, I get you.

It's a little awkward getting these sincere comments, but I don't want to be rude or disrespectful, so most of the time I just don't reply.
