no green eyes, it should stay asit is. this is how it was made, so leave it ! if u "edit" it for fear of offending people, u erase part of history. like george carlin said, people are raising soft children. with soft language. don't change this person's work.

I like it a lot it’s pretty good it’s pretty fun
