His Wife Is a Hen; your guess is as good as mine
21 October 2008 | by FieCrierSee all my reviews

Very strange... in a very sketchy sort of animation, rough lines, a fat, blue-skinned man is waited upon in his apartment by a large hen. She serves him a hot drink in a mug and fresh hot water for his feet to soak in. They have a pet dog, except it looks like a giant fat centipede with a human head. He plays music on a record player with the wheels of a wind-up bus rather than a needle. All is well until a man comes to visit with a box of ladybugs and he whispers something to the man. Things start breaking more frequently and several nightmares or nightmarish things happen.

I have no idea what any of it means!
