So I went to bachelor party last night, and during the course of the evening, all of the following topics came up naturally in conversation without any prompting from me: cock-piercing, threesomes, incest, ball-shaving, auto-erotic asphyxiation, having your mother walk in on you while you're engaged in oral sex, and the many varied and complicated rules to follow when staging a Jewish funeral. Now is this a case of life imitating art? Or do I just have really strange friends?
And while we're going off on tangents, here's some quick business: First off, Happy Mother's Day, Mom! Do me a favor and ignore that last paragraph, okay? Also, let's give major props to "Dave" for emailing to point out that I completely missed the best joke in last week's episode, which was the mural of a humongous baby's head that loomed over Nate and Lisa during their cheese vs. vomit dip argument at the art gallery. Thank God for TiVo, because that was fucking hilarious. And finally, you'll all be treated to a super-special guest recapper again next week, because I'll be too busy spending my days packing up everything I own so that it can be moved a grand total of seven-tenths of a mile to my new apartment. So, you know, don't get worried and think I'm off missing somewhere when the recap comes in without my name on it.
We open on a group of young kids playing soccer in the park, and for the third time this season we're quickly teased with the death of a character we know and love. This time it's young Taylor, who gets a dramatic introduction when the camera pans up to show her sassing one of the other players about his kicking skills. This is immediately followed by a truly hilarious shot of her being menaced by the blades of a gigantic lawnmower that's creeping up behind her. Hee! Ahh, the opening gimmick. I've missed you so. Elsewhere in the park, Keith's parents (a.k.a. Kersh and Mrs. Kersh) are chatting with Mrs. Kersh's Aunt Jeanie about the questionable quality of her buttermilk pie. Taylor joins the conversation just in time to see Aunt Jeanie get stung by a bee, and it's soon obvious that her aunt is suffering a severe allergic reaction. She gasps and wheezes and eventually collapses to the ground, where Taylor hovers over her looking extremely worried. Kersh frantikally kalls his kontacts at the FBI to find out if this was one of those evil, genetically-engineered super-bees, but it's to no avail. Fade to white. Farewell, Jeanette Louise Bradford. I'm sorry that Keith, Kersh, and Karla had to kill you just to get some skreen time.
