Thought: Maybe put Mike/Joel/Jonah and the season number in the tags?

Is a good idea Chrysostom, I usually have a tag template that helps but I couldn't find it and I was in a hurry to make the post this week.

It's a giant spider invasion of SAVINGS at MENARD'S!

(When I first watched this, I lived on the east coast and had never heard of Menard's--it's a Midwestern farm supply and hardware chain. When I moved to Wisconsin I just about died laughing the first time I heard a Menard's commercial, it's exactly that phrasing on all of them, with bonus banjo music.)

I actually have a friend whose main claim to fame, for a while, was that he grew up in the town where this movie was shot. The Menard's joke is like Exhibit A of "extremely good local jokes that don't even care whether anyone understands them"
