SJTV: Commercial Interruption

‘sup, kiddies? No SJTV this week due to preparations for the Halloween season. I guess you’ll just have to find another way to KILL some time at work (or wherever else you read these little musings.) But don’t worry – we still have some things to help rot your brain – some classic Tales From …
