“Happy Human Centipede Day!!!”

WARNING: THE FOLLOWING UNCORKED ENTRY MAY OFFEND YOU BASED ON THE SUBJECT MANNER. READER DISCRETION ADVISED. So here’s what I declared on Facebook this past Friday morning: Today…is Human Centipede Day. Yes. Yes, it’s true.

In 1986, when I was 16 years old, my late, beloved grandma (Betty Koch) bought me my first-ever video camera. It was a bulky, unwieldy, Panasonic VHS cassette-containing number that came with a chunky, rechargeable battery the size of a Wonka bar.
