The face that should not be

No, kanji should not have eyelashes, ever. Even if you manage to overcome your brain's desire to parse them as little random tufts of hair, you then realize that those words must be covered in randomly-placed eyes, like unfortunate fish who grow up near the wrong kind of factory. No wonder they only show them in silhouette.

No, Japan only admits one type of hairy character: hige moji, where /hige/ = "beard, whiskers". (Apparently the same term can also be used for Fraktur, weirdly enough, although I've never heard that usage myself. Then again, I've never set anything in Fraktur.)

How about a monkey tail?
