Bat People on the Moon Still Seem Happy

After decades of seclusion, the bat people of the moon have been seen
smiling, according to a New Zealand researcher.

Lunarologist and bat enthusiast Jamie Hollingsworth has been studying

protective, scary gear, bat people are like love-childs. Free-to-be.
