Pore Strips
I'm sure they're a harmful tool of the cosmetics-industrial complex and all, but my goodness do those strips ever work to pull gunk out of your pores. I was shocked, disgusted, and vaguely fascinated by the result.

[edit] Explanation

This comic shows a box of "Deep-cleaning pore strips," which are a skin-care product designed to clean your pores. You stick them on your face, wait a while, and then rip them off. When they come off, a whole lot of disgusting gunk from out of your pores comes off with them. The kind shown in the comic, however, is super-deep cleaning, and rips out not only the user's pore gunk, but also his entire skull.

[edit] Transcript

[A box of pore strips, marked "deep cleaning."]
[Cueball examines the box.]
[Cueball applies strip to face.]
[Cueball pulls on strip.]
[Cueball pulls skull out of head with pore strip.]

Cyriak reference? --Jiří Dobrý (talk) 10:52, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

I'm not sure because I can't quite see, but I think the strip just pulled out his skull, leaving his skin. This also makes more sense considering the labels on the box. If this is true, someone needs to fix the explanation. Athang (talk) 22:29, 1 May 2014 (UTC)
