J Mascis is an aficionado at rockin’, skateboarding, and apparently, slinging some darn good jokes, as his random guest appearance on Comedy Central’s @midnight last night proved.

In one round which challenged players to #AddASongRuinAMovie, Mascis offered up #MrsDoubtfirestarter as a hilarious answer; later, when asked for tips on how to deal with climate change, the alt-rocker suggested people “get used to the taste of your own urine.” Touché.
