Cramer’s Dairy (Episode 1)

The milkman that Jake witnesses breaking a milk bottle over and over and over again works for the same dairy that employs Spike Milligan, the psycho delivery guy from the Skeleton Crew short story, “Morning Deliveries.” As readers will recall, Milligan always left a little something extra for his clients — “extras” that include poisonous spider venom and other imbibable methods of death.
