Some people are optimists, some are pessimists, and some are realists. Illustrator Eduardo Salles is a realist, and you can tell from his comics.

The Mexico City-born illustrator is known for creating brutally honest comics about modern life. From the brutal truth of texting to the reality of dieting - Salles illustrates it all in his comics in an utterly cynical yet hilarious way. Keep on scrolling to check out his comics, translated from Spanish to English by Bored Panda, and don't forget to vote for your favorites!

This is not 21st cencury. This has always been true. We only help those with appearances that appeal to us in one way or another. Same with animals. People helping animals that are not that pettable/loveable are scarse. Like mosquitos, spider, rats, cockroaches etc.

Well, the nightstand leg does not kiss the foot, but mostly the little toe. I think that the only reason that toe is still being grown on our foot; to make out with the nightstand.
