I’ll be honest, I’ve got a bit of writer’s block when it comes to these intros. The album artwork jokes come relatively easily — pretty low-hanging fruit — but, I mean…the intros? What’s there to joke about here? WELP, WE GOT SOME REAL GOOD ALBUM COVERS COMING! HAHA VERY FUNNY, KEEP IT COMING. I dunno.
