Are you feeling left out?  Have you always WANTED to experience the horror, the fascination, the ICKYNESS, but were cursed by not living in areas that simply ABOUND with the little devils?

Well my friends, FRET NO MORE!  You too may experience the PHANTASMAGORIA that has, simply, been abbreviated (by those in the know) as SHB!  Feel the frustration!  Be REPELLED by it's awesome visage!  Using the magic of 2D PHOTOGRAPHY, you will practically SMELL the putridity of the festering carnage!

Without further ado...
