Storyline

A short depicts the importance of springs by a satanic spring sprite to an unappreciative doughy guy while a Georgia town is terrorized by electrified flesh eating worms the same day a northern interloper comes to town. During the movie breaks, Mike and the bots check the SOL's safety equipment, all of which have already been used for either gym class or shooting it off in Mike's face. The crew is then terrorized by Mikey, the Mike sprite after Crow wishes Mike didn't exist for the sake of argument. Down in Castle Forrester, Pearl throws her first annual Castle Forrester Fair, which involves low altitude bungee jumping and fried ape hair. Tom finds the southern atmosphere of the movie contagious until Mike injects him with pastrami and Crow mimics the younger sister with the patchy pants and platform shoes, but he goes a little overboard with the shoes. Mike then uses the ship's reactor to turn his own worm collection into a race of flesh eaters, which ultimately fries them all into ... Written by Titus Yorick
