Death in the Depths

Coming home from a chicken wings run on sunday, I had NPR on. And since it was late night sunday, they were playing Old Time Radio shows.

It was so funny to listen to them and mock them MST3K style. And then an episode of ‘Inner Sanctum’. It titled ‘Death in the Depths’. It was about divers who died underwater.

Due to the way one has to describe the scenes on a radio drama, it caused us to laugh our asses off at the simplest descriptions. We were twisting them into goofy childish sexual references. “He held his air-hose with one hand and rang his bell with the other”.

You prolly had to be there to get it, and also be able to laugh at stupidly silly stuff. I think Tim will get a kick out of this picture.
