A Shadowy Figure Enters…

I read this funny parody from Mike Kerwick of The Record about a week ago and intended to post about it on MMO, but completely spaced and forgot about it. I just came across it again as I was looking through my favorites folder and I got another laugh out of it. I think you […]
