Ted the Animator: “Hrm. Guess we need to explain some things for the young’uns, huh?”
Carl the Animator: “Yeah, go for it.”
Ted the Animator: “Listen up, kids… in the ‘90s, there was something called MST3k, whichwas a strange thing called a ‘TV show’–”
Carl the Animator: “–which were like Netflix originals that you can’t pause, and only release once a week–”
Ted the Animator: “–that aired on two prominent cable TV channels–”
Carl the Animator: “–which were like YouTube channels you paid for, but with more ads and less content–”
Ted the Animator: “–and was about comedians making jokes over bad movies–”
Carl the Animator: “–which was like reaction videos, but actually clever–”
Ted the Animator: “–and everyone who watched had to gather around an actual television set–”
Carl the Animator: “–which was like a really big iPad that does nothing but display stuff–”

Ted the Animator: “And though Colin’s mother would kill me for saying it… Mike is a better actor than Joel. Joel’s more lovable as a host, but Mike has a little more range for sure.”
Carl the Animator: “But he doesn’t have a skit about a spastic lemur puppet, now does he.”
Ted the Animator: “…fair point. It’s all a toss-up, really.”
