Description: Characters are sad and cry their tears into an anthropomorphic beaker.

These friendly-looking characters are meant to not only evoke ‘warm and fuzzy feelings’, but also ‘ugly or aggressive feelings’. “Cuteness is not just an aestheticization but an eroticization of exaggerated powerlessness, passivity, and vulnerability, evoking tenderness for “small things”, but also, sometimes, a desire to belittle or diminish them further.” (Sianne Ngai)
