Jeepers Creepers Semi-Star. Thanks, ’90s.

Ahh, the halcyon days of ’90s lulz – Kids in the Hall, priiiiime SNL, Beavis and Butthead and Mr. Show. I wish I had remembered this in time for Easter/420 AKA #WEEDSTER, because it’s basically the perfect accompaniment to that day, but I didn’t! OK? I didn’t! Nonetheless, I urge you to spend a few(…)
