Gloaming Gap

The horrors of small-town life

Jim and Greg Screw Up

{The following conversation took place approximately 7,200 years ago, between Squints-His-Eyes-A-Lot and his brother, Running-Down-His-Leg, as they explored a cave. The only reason we have this record is due to a rather peculiar bird who lived just outside the cave…. Continue Reading →
