Hue Manatee by Bobert-Rob Hue Manatee by Bobert-Rob
Inspired by... a song! Yes, I was listening to Mushroomhead's "Bwomp", and there's a part where the guy says "True humanity", but the pause between the hu and manity makes it sound like he's talking about a rainbow manatee.

SO NATURALLY I TAKE THAT AND MAKE A PICTURE OUT OF IT. :D

It's sad that there's no more true Hue Manatee, though. They were my favorite kind. Guess we'll just have to settle for the artificial ones. :(

Cuz God would have to smack himself for being so awesome.

Although who knows, maybe there actually ARE Hue Manatee's in, like, the deep ocean. There's all kinds of messed up critters in them dark ass depths.

This is so happy on so many levels it makes other manatees so jealous they jump through rainbows in attempts to become a Hue Manatee.

Or they TRY jumping. Poor tubby things, they couldn't even get out of the water. Them Dolphins can go jump into a wall, the show offs.
