Okay, maybe the internet is not such a bad place, if it brings us unexpectedly heartwarming yarns such as this one – in which a mum, in pursuit of a custom-made unicorn mirror, must send the tradesperson she’s contracted to make said mirror pictures of her handsome son being smutty in said mirror.

Confused? Let us unpack this most excellent story.

Minneapolis 30-year-old Sohail got given a pretty fantastic unicorn mirror by his parents back in 2016. It’s gorgeous and special and one-of-a-kind, and it made his sister Sohaila super jealous. (As Sohail told Buzzfeed, “She has always wanted everything I’ve been gifted“).

Because Sohail and Sohaila have awesome parents, their mum commissioned a carpenter to make another unicorn mirror. Of course, the carpenter needed reference photos, and the only pics Sohail’s mum could find were… these ones:

????i was busy thinking 'bout… existential crises????

And send them she did, but not without some unexpected consequence – namely the following message that Sohail received from her after she spoke with the tradie:

Sohail my son. I was forced to use the only photos of the mirror I could find which were your gd smut photos because the carpenter we found needed references before he accepted our offer to recreate the mirror and guess what. HE ASKED IF PART OF HIS PAYMENT CAN BE THE MAN IN THE PHOTOS. THE GAYS ARE EVERYWHERE!!!

Sohail posted the hilarious exchange, and several of the smut photos in question, on Twitter, and damn if people don’t fkn love the whole thing.

We salute Sohail for his many excellent Lewks, and we especially salute Sohail’s mum for being the definition of a legend. We just hope we get updates on Sohail’s blossoming romance with the maker of the new unicorn mirror.
