…you look at a fish sandwich and think “I know where this fish used to live!"
…you know the origin of the name “Cliff Beefpile”.
…you kvetch about having missed out on a coffee cup with a spring snake inside.
You wish springs never existed!
I feel your pain. That was the only snake delivery system that they had on the merch table, as I recall, and I passed. Did buy the script book though, and it’s pretty cool.
You try to interpret anything (whether it’s a TV commercial, random sign on the highway, something at a department store, etc) into a MST3K reference.

There goes your evening.
