"Hey! You reading the book! Yeah you! Surprise! We're Dace Dancers! No, not robots, Transformers or anything else from a large-budget summer blockbuster sequel, we're new and improved Face Dancers. Frankie was laying on the hints pretty thick along the way, but in case you didn't figure it out: We're MOTHERFUCKING FACE DANCERS!"
Have the ambiguously gay duo said that CH was written by Erasmus or some other BS to explain this away? Now I'm really mad I got banned from DN, I can't believe how upset I am right now.
Let's say Romeo and Juliet II was written by Shakespeare's estranged and retarded son while under the spell of an apothecary of ill-repute. If he brought those crazy lovestruck kids back to life with stem cells and radiation therapy and changed their characters to an asian and black couple travelling with the carnival while driving a Ford Taurus with a Flux Capacitor, it would still be less offensive than the HLP change.
The only way it makes sense is if Erasmus and Omnius refer to themselves as Face Dancers in a conversation that no one else
is watching or participating in. Like how me and my twin brother sit around and casually discuss what it's like to be overweight elderly Asian women.
