    OK. So. "C.C.P.D.A." could stand for Cowboy Chocolatier Public Defender Anteater. But that sort of contextually obvious interpretation isn't why we're all here, is it? We're here because we want MORE.

    So... are they implying the buff guy is some sort of were-anteater?

    I actually want to see more of this now. Like, scenes from whatever insane book they're imagining.

    "Ever since I met you, I've known there's something different about you. The strange things kept adding up. Your regular trips to South America. That time you secreted a stink from a gland in your rear when those muggers threatened us. The way you hide your testicles inside your body... when I put it all together, the truth hit me. You're...."

    She hesitated. She could feel his smouldering gaze on her as he stepped closer and put his hands on her shoulders.

    "Say it." He growled.

    She took a deep breath. "Myrmecophaga tridactyla."

    Yes, but that's a bit incomplete. They're implying the buff guy is some sort of were-anteater that fucks.

    What makes this work is how little of an exaggeration it actually is.

    Netflix description clarification please... "secret"-ihv, or "secrete"-ihv (ihv is kind of the phonetic V sound of secretive i'm looking to add on to the ambiguous word...).

    I respect Defender Hellhound for his ability not to look down in shame like the others. You gotta love yourself, man.



    On an unrelated topic, look out for my newest series, When a Man Loves Himself.

    I found this story description from the author of Defender Hellhound:

    In Fake Fur, a group of clueless human furries are accidentally booked at Shifting Sands, to the amusement of the real shifters. But wolf shifter Calvin isn’t laughing when he realizes that the beautiful woman in faux fur fox ears is his mate.

    As over the top as these books are, the idea of a bunch of furries getting dunked on by actual were-people is kinda genius.

    I remember a book in which vampires used an internet forum to communicate, on the logic that normal people would just think they're weirdos and ignore them. The anecdote for this system being abandoned was that at one point several vampire lords mobilized for a turf war against what they thought was an ancient nest with unheard of powers but turned out to be three weird kids from Chicago and a rando from Toronto with thirty accounts taking a stand against cyber bullying.

    It... Wasn't a good book, but I always get a kick out of the brand of urban fantasy that, rather than elaborate hidden worlds just have people out in the open on the logic that "normies do way weirder shit than this."

    Given the sheer number of these fucking things that exist, saturating every keyword search in the Kindle store for a start, it wouldn’t surprise me if they’re all written by algorithms powered by botnets.

    Next step is - naturally - erotica featuring botnets. "When you meet this botnet, you'll say, SEOOhhhh!"

    There is literally a manga where the heroine has a 'close encounter' with an ant eater.

    I seem to recall some banned commercial (from Australia, I think) with a similar idea.

    We kind of got that with Ex Machina.

    Though I suppose her AI was search engine based. It must get pretty kinky in there.

    Honestly, these are folk who know what they're about and figured out how to make money out of it. We should all be so lucky.

    I'm going to need the name of that thing about actual bear or the Irish Dragon Brothers. I need to be able to show it to people when i tell them this kind of stuff exists and they don't believe it.
    Is that the "Cowboy bear" one?
