Remember our friend in Fujian who was hospitalized following a kiss gone terribly, terribly wrong with his apparent pet turtle (ahem, snapping turtle)? Well we never showed you a photo of the aftermath, and it’s not pretty. Not pretty at all.
That man was believed to be keeping the turtle as a pet, and netizens called this his excruciating, “passionate goodbye kiss” with the thing.
Shanghai Daily believes the animal is an alligator snapping turtle, a relatively dangerous reptile native to North America. The same kind has been found before in an Anhui province lake, and they’re considered dangerous to China’s ecosystem and obviously to human faces.
As one user on Kotaku wrote, “This is the only way a duckface selfie is acceptable.”
Now let us never speak of it again.
