*** That being said, he seemed to be okay with river dolphins if one of blogs on strange animals in to be believed. Then again, river aren't what most people would consider cute and aren't as exposed in media.

[[http://www.bogleech.com/ Bogleech]] is a website devoted to insects, parasites and monsters in general--in other words, to the phenomenon of horror and all the things that cause it. Topics include biology, movie monsters, videogames, toys, mythology, and so on. It was started by web cartoonist and biology buff Jonathan Wojcik, also known as Tropers/{{Scythemantis}} The main site also includes webcomics (notably, ''Webcomic/AwfulHospital'') and flash cartoons, as well as ''TabletopGame/{{Mortasheen}},'' Wojcik's own idea for a Pokemon-style tabletop RPG, and the ''Literature/CreepypastaCookoff'', an annual harvesting of short horror works by his fanbase. Also hosts several nature articles written by himself (and has links to numerous Cracked.com articles by the very same), usually about the less pleasant aspects of Mother Nature (e.g. parasites that cause aberrant supernumerary leg growth in frog).

* CrapsaccharineWorld: TabletopGame/{{Mortasheen}} is [[InvertedTrope something of the Bizarro version of this trope]]. The setting is [[PollutedWasteland a sprawling continent-sized toxic urban wasteland]] of twisted science that is home to degenerate humanoids and hundreds of species of horrific bloodthirsty monsters (many created by the residents as living tools or weapons) where life is either nasty, brutish and short or agonizingly drawn out for far too long... and yet most sentient beings who live there cheerfully take it all in stride, and behave pretty much like you'd expect if this was a standard happy-go-lucky Pokémon-like world instead of a hell-world that could otherwise give '''''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}''''' a run for its money.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: In the above-mentioned Yu-Gi-Oh! review, Wojcik mentions that this is why he never cared much for the anime: it focused on people ''playing'' a card game rather than the bizarre and creative world ''within'' that card game.

** Goodra gets a GIF of a tumbleweed on account of the fact that Bog has extremely positive opinions of what it ''is'' (a slime-dripping slug dragon) but extremely negative opinions of it not being what it ''could have been'' (Its preevolution was blind and legless, among other factors). Both opinions were too strong for a neutral rating, so Bog chose not to rate it at all.
** The Abra line was given a rating of '666 and a crudely drawn headbanging demon' as a TakeThat to the people who once claimed that Pokemon was satanist propaganda.
