Sleep uneasily knowing that under their feathers owls look like Satan’s death hawks

They are very displeasing to the eye.

You can always count on people on the internet to lose their minds at something that isn’t all that insane. 

Much like how you look better in business casual instead of in your pajamas, of course an owl is going to look inexplicably odd without its feathers. 

More so, an owl can turn its head around 360 degrees. You’re darn right they’re going to have some idiosyncratic-looking skeletal and muscular systems to accommodate that. 

Also, they’re birds. Birds are weird as hell. 

But enough caveats. On to the demon spawn, tweeted by @DanaSchwartzzz.

People did not like that. 

People did not like that at all.

Twitter users also responded in kind with pictures of all sorts of animals without fur, which, surprise, look kinda weird, but not all that weird when you think about it. 

You’ve got your bears.

Your hedgehogs.

Opossums probably aren’t going to get invited to any parties. 

Hairless raccoons need your love. 

But none of those have anything on cats without fur.

That is… disquieting. 

(And also a fantastic Tumblr just in case you forgot the joke.)
