Quick! Say the first word that comes to mind when I mention porcupines. Ok... Sure, why not...That one’s not really what we're looking for, but keep 'em coming...Ok, that's a little weird that you thought of that...Oh god! How would that even work!?!?

You know what, let's stop that exercise. NOT the results we were expecting. How would you even get the banana out of the rubber chicken once you were hooked on to the trapeze? You know what, it's not important. The word we were looking for was "salt". That's right, porcupines like the star of our latest short, Prickly, love salt and will stop at nothing to get one sweet, sweet lick of the decidedly non-sweet substance.

Dont believe us? Possibly because you've never heard this so-called "fact" before and it sounds like it needs to be accompanied by a big fat, 72 point Wikipedia-style "citation needed" label? We agree that it does. So here's our citation: Prickly the Porcupine, a great new short in which one brave porcupine goes off in search of all the salt his heart desires. Of course, we just did a short that claimed there were no kangaroos in America (http://www.rifftrax.com/shorts/kangaroos) because Wild Lions ate them all. So you probably should take

anything you learn in them with a grain of...Dammit! Prickly ate the end of the sentence!

The write ups are usually done by Sean or Conor, and yeah - they've been knocking it out of the part for a while on the product descriptions.

Anyone else notice one of the music cues in this short was used as the "World of the Psychic" theme in "Ghostbusters 2"?   :highfive:
