'Everyone hates mosquitos.

If you hate mosquito bites, isn't it but an action driven by its nature, just like when you cannot help but touch this fluffy work?

If you hate the appearance of mosquitos, what about this fluffy, adorable, tremendous and fat creature? Do you like it? Do you think it is still a mosquito?'

「每一個人都討厭蚊。

若你討厭牠的叮咬,難道這不是牠的本能所驅使的行為,就像你不自覺地想要觸摸這毛茸茸的作品一樣嗎?

若你討厭蚊子的外表,那這隻毛茸茸、可愛、巨大且肥胖的生物呢?你喜歡嗎?你還會覺得這是一隻蚊嗎?」
