BLUES NEWS:

VIDEO:

A while back, there was this little fart-around series of skits called "Letterkenny Problems" that I'm pretty sure was featured on links at least once, if not a few times. Now it's a real-ass series and shit . . . sorta. It debuted last month. Here's the cold open/preview from December:

Ahhhhhh. Rural Canada.

BluesMay will have your links tomorrow.
