It's family photo time on the SOL! Crow and Servo behave badly, Gypsy worries about her hair, and the picture comes out badly.
Joel presents Snaction (includes wax knuckles, a Pixie Staff, the Five Lady Fingers of Death, the Everlasting Octa-gob-stomper, and ninja throwing cookies), while the Mads show off their Unhappy Meals. Frank wants his money back.
The SOL crew thinks up new ideas for clown acts. It gets increasingly dark.
The SOL presents "Gypsy Rose Me!", a new one-woman show starring Gypsy.
Servo and Crow wrap themselves in trash bags and pretend to be scents. Joel reads a letter from a bomb expert in Germany who sends a picture of their very own Crow — a bomb disposal robot. Clayton cuts Frank (who still wants his money) free.
Throw It In: At the end of the "Snack-tion" invention exchange where Crow and Tom are duking it out in the background as ninjas, Tom's head falls off. Again.
