“tiny plants” 😭 people really could get away with casual fungi slander in 1927, huh


If I may quote J. Jonah Jameson,

> Slander is spoken. In print, it's libel.


I enjoyed the music choice and the passage choices! I thought it was cool that the substitutions seem somewhat related to the original word. well done!


thank you!! organizing the words was so much work but i'm really happy with how it turned out
