Maggots, again. (But no dead people.)


Maggots only eat dead flesh, not living flesh.

So although it will feel a tad creepy, they actually are helping not huring.

Yes! It's amazing that it's an old and seemingly primitive practice that still persists.

I would imagine that it would feel less icky than it looks. We just don't like seeing that many critters in one place.

I would imagine it kind of tickles.

And if I imagined them as mini cleaning robots instead of, you know, maggots, that would actually sound like fun...
