RIP Mr. Peppermint

I've been too busy lately to post so I'm a little late to the RIP bandwagon, but Gibby's dad, Jerry Haynes, aka Mr. Peppermint, passed away a couple weeks ago. What an interesting family they must have been. Father and son bore a striking resemblance to each other, echos of family resemblances.

At the last Butthole Surfers shows there were images of Mr. Peppermint sprinkled in with the other videos playing in the background, the first time I ever saw that. A generous tribute to his dad. My condolences go out to all that knew him and enjoyed his work on Texas TV.
