Posted by on July 28, 2020

  It seems that The Simpsons will always be relevant as a person named Ian Moir has reworked Mr. Burns’ “Sing My Vest” into a metal meme.

You know you’ve reached an apex when you have a joke made about you on The Simpsons, and that’s exactly where Insane Clown Posse fans found themselves on last night’s season finale of the long-running cartoon. “If I ever seeCarl again, i’m going to freeze him, chop him up into ice cubes and scoop him […]
