<p>Yes, the inside is important. </p>

<p>OP seems to be equating “ugly, musty men” with genuinely awful men. Meanwhile implying that you shouldn’t look past a person’s appearance because it reflects on what kind of person they are, and their negativity will make you similarly a bad person. </p></blockquote>

<p>Shrek‘s “but you are beautiful” always makes me tear up and I’m not ashamed to admit it. Shrek loved Fiona, but feared she would never accept him. Fiona love Shrek, but feared he would never accept her. Eventually they learned to be happy with who they are and accept each other. How in the hell do you miss the point that hard?</p>

<p>OK so Papa Bear is a veteran, first book was published in 1962 during the midst of conflict in Vietnam, and at some point, this cover happened: </p>
