AK-47 gone, not forgotten


  • NeverDave

    Interesting time-space anomaly at 40:00-32:00-43:45…

  • Judie

    Just thinking Hoto is actually “Joto”, right?

    • Ah thanks Judie! I was trying to figure out what the hell the right word was, but not knowing anything of Spanish, and not being joto, I couldn’t find it. And Dan’s notes had it spelled entirely differently as well. Urban Dictionary confirms your spelling! I’ll change it on this page. Whether Rob wants to change his fake tee shirt is up to him.

  • Darryl, I can’t remember which episode they were talking about that show that was like Seinfeld. I want to look it up, any ideas?
