  • You know, chained_bear has a whole list of these words. And she's a girl, too. ;-)

  • That was a terrible movie.

    February 18, 2007

  • That was a movie? I immediately thought of the song.

    February 18, 2007

  • Jeepers Creepers was a movie. Terrible indeed.

  • I don't think I'd ever heard the song until I saw the movie. Now the two are associated in my head.

  • Well, the song's much older. I had no idea it was a movie, and don't much care either way. The point was the creepiness of the lyric if one considers the alternate meaning that AZ has listed here for the word "peeper."

    Jeez, now that I said it that way, this page is no fun anymore. *pouts*
