In addition to the three packs of Plain White is mother bought, Jasper picked out a pair of creepy underwear. He was so excited to wear them, he wore them to bed that night. However, once the lights were out Jasper realized the green, ghoulish glow coming from his creepy underwear. He tried to put them in the bottom of the hamper, but woke up wearing them!
