*** You'd think there would be. There isn't. The closest thing to a full afro in any of the stuff/expansion packs is in the Katy Perry's Sweet Treats stuff pack, but it has an enormous tacky candy accessory on it. It's not just the devs, either - this troper spent ''months'' trawling multiple modding sites' content before seeing an afro.

** Real answer, though. There ''is'' a penis bone (-r. Heh heh.) called baculum, although it's only present in animals like monkeys, not in humans (also, the penis bone is seperated from the skeleton anyway). Who's to say the Grim Reaper has any trace of humanity at all, though, or that scientific facts apply to him since he's a supernatural being? Heck, for all we know, he could use magic for some temporary hanky-panky. [[TakeAThirdOption Or not be a complete skeleton to begin with.]]

** I seem to recall at least one interview where the dev team cited Quirks in {{GURPS}} for one of the things that inspired the trait system; it's likely an artifact of that (Which, in turn, is likely an artifact of the fact that GURPS is notoriously pentaphilic)

**Is that a double entendre?



Lions are the national animal off England, yet I don't think there's any lions there. (Except in zoo's maybe.)

* Llamas are clearly quite central to the culture of Sim Nation - but llamas are native to the Andes, which Sim Nation is clearly not located anywhere near!

*** I hope that's true, since I named my ''[[{{PokemonBlackAndWhite}} Black]]'' character after Vidcund...
* I forgot the characters name, not having played TheSims2 in ''years'', but I clearly remember that when you go through the memories of one of the characters, one of her memories is doing [=WooHoo=] with TheGrimReaper. Seeing as he's a skeleton....''how''?

* Mary-Sue is not a MarySue. There's a very low chance that the creators of the game even [[OpinionMyopia know what Mary Sue means.]] No one I've met outside the internet does. The parody of the "perfect" suburban life is a common trope (look at DesperateHousewives for the same kind of thing) but that is not the same kind of perfection as the MarySue archetype. If they were trying to parody the archetype, they wouldn't have made her a middle-aged lobbyist at level 1 in her career track. On that note, there's nothing in canon to suggest that Angela is the cheerleader who picked on you in high school. It's not her fault that her parents neglected her sister and "patient and dutiful" does not a MarySue make (or a mean girl, or a preppy princess.) She dreams of being a ''fishing boat captain.'' You know who gets turned in a Sue the most in the fandom? Lilith, the special snowflake goth who's soooo much cooler and badass. By the same people who accuse her mother and sister of it.
