Michael Rosen gave his parents a bag of toenails, which had been pureed to form a syrup. Unaware to Michael, the toenail syrup had fermented into a hallucinogenic drug. Michael's parents each sipped a bit from the bag, and were soon affected by the toenail syrup's mind-altering effects. First a second-long hallucination of Princess Peach while they thought the syrup tasted like "peach syrup, TINNED toenail syrup". By this point Michael's parents were so hooked on the syrup that they drank the lot, and before Michael knew it, they were swimming (or going mad) in the fish tank, referencing Smosh and singing Smash Mouth.
Michael's parents continued to take toenail syrup for months (presumably making their own). Eventually they got sick of the Smosh references and Smash Mouth songs, and every time they went in the fish tank they instead chanted "goat bed, goat bed, goat bed, goat bed" and later "crap bed, crap bed, crap bed, crap bed". At one point Michael's mum said "he lied, but I said she said he lied, when you said she said I said he lied, he said 'we know that, ya fool!'"
Michael then references someone getting so tempted they couldn't help themselves, so they just fell over and died. (That was not a reference to his father, by the way.)
