Heathrow hates you. But, please don't take it personally, he hates EVERYONE. In fact, just the other day as he was walking through the Magic Mushroom Forest ( which he hates) he met the Orange Creamsicle, who tried to be friends and even offered Heathrow a bite, but Heathrow just hated him as well, and it made the Orange Creamsicle really sad and he went home and drank bleach.
