Like a railing to the chest

How… how did you even… (source)

You know, at this point, I’m not even going to ask why or how this happened.

When the food is too dang good

Taste testing, Sims-style

Try the grey stuff, it’s delicious! Don’t believe me? Ask the dishes! Or… spoon, in this case.

Why is this a thing?! This is horrifying!

I’m pretty sure trying to pick up your baby shouldn’t be this complicated, nor require that much body contortion. Your baby also shouldn’t be an astral projection of arcane magic.


Character creation gone wrong
Yeah glitches are so in right now. (source)

Gretchen, stop trying to make ‘glitch’ happen. It’s not going to happen.

Puberty hit this kid pretty hard

Now that these Sims glitches are embedded in your mind too, yeah, you’re welcome.
