els. Why are they a thing? No one knows.
Like mosquitoes, they seem to exist solely to upset us all.
Especially this one.
But you’re never in charge. Not when it comes to eels.
If you look in his face, you can see he knows you’d eat him.
We can’t think of anything we’d like to see coming towards us less.
Seriously, give us a shark fin. We know sharks.
And we know how to fight them. Theoretically.
Some say a shark will stop attacking you if you punch it in the face.
Which means sharks are at least driven by a logic we can all understand.
Who among us would not stop attacking someone who punched us right in the face?
But an eel? These are slippery critters.
And their faces are small…maybe even too small to punch.
So that option is completely out.
And who knows what they want?
To eat you? Electrocute you? Cover you in goop? Steal your identity and rack up a bunch of credit card debt?
