    A joke from every episode of MST3K

    The fan who created the compilation says:
    “At the end of three months that I’ll never get back, here is a project I’ve been wanting to do for some time. Every single movie that MST3k ever riffed. And as many shorts as I could get. And anything else MST3k related I felt belonged here. Enjoy.”

    Featured image is Mantis Shrimp by Perry Aragon and was used in the Crayola-ification story. Incidentally the Mantis Shrimp was the Geologic Podcast’s Interesting Fauna, Show 268.

      I totally and utterly ordered the Little Sloth necklace yesterday. The anthropomorphized sloth is my spirit animal. So lazy, yet so happy.

      Oh, that Little Sloth necklace is crazy wonderful. I’m so glad you ordered it!
