This happened because I watched La Vie En Rose and The Elephant Man in the same week. However, the basic arc of the cartoon could apply to almost any biopic.
While I was drawing this, I began to recall a disturbing made-for-TV movie I saw (or dreamt up) as a kid. It was about a nurse who was in a car accident, or maybe a fire, and she ended up with her mouth being fused shut, or at least horribly contorted. A gold star to anyone who can dig up a clip on YouTube.
Next Week: I don’t know yet.
