One of the most obscure TV references I personally know
26 July 2010 | by (Nashville TN) – See all my reviews

Firstly, I have to give props to quentintarantado for the review & shared appreciation for this episode of "Amazing Stories."

This takes me back to High School..... and a decade & 1/2 later, one of my best friends & I STILL recite a few memorable lines from it.

Goofy? Yes. Low-Budget? Absolutely. Chock full of unknown actors? Yep! Worth blowing 22 some-odd minutes of my youthful life watching it when it aired? HECK YEAH!!!

Such a great pun in the title; Which was also blended into the plot itself with the same cerebral genius & off the wall comedy. I just wish I could find this one online to watch again.
