King of the Hill screens
I thought this screen was pretty fitting given the above tweet. This episode is from when Hank helps build a pool in Kahn's yard.
Horror movie tropes
Horror movies love to chop an onion or block of wood way too loudly as a jump scare in the beginning like scary foreplay— Kyle 🌱 (@KylePlantEmoji) April 2, 2021
