Nimrod

Nimrods are giant heads with legs and arms capable of shooting their fingers as missiles. Both sexes can birth children, which results from two nimrods running towards each other at high speed while screaming. If one or both of them gets a “splitting headache” when they collide, baby nimrods crawl out of their skulls.
