Remember the “North Carolina Sewer Monster” from last Spring (which turned out to be not a monster exactly but a roiling pile of worms)? Yes, I know you tried really hard to burn the image of that creature out of your memory through heavy drinking and a little steel wool applied to the eyeballs, but I’m here to bring it all back to you. What’s grosser–the real thing, or Paul Nudd’s ongoing series of pus/slug/slime/vomit/ooze videos? I say the Sewer Monster wins hands-down.
