i remember when that show was on kvrx. when i was in high school, i slept over at my friend kasey’s house, and the plumbing there made a noise exactly like the elk-mating sound effect from that show. kept me up all night. well, that and the small-town homosexual punk crew, who were totally asking for it, you know.
