A. C. Wise and the Butterflies


It's that time of the year again when A.C. Wise tries to pick something that's not too weird and I, on the other hand, dredge up something from the files to ensure there's something quirky when you google image search for her, because for some reason she's a magnet to oddly mundane images otherwise.

Thus chosen, to that end, we present Butterfly Man.
