Spoilers below.

What if, in the final season of Breaking Bad, Jesse Pinkman had just gotten into that van arranged by Saul Goodman and headed for Alaska? As one show writer put it, “he probably could have been happy had he simply gone away ... like he'd planned.”

Breaking Bad fan Lydia Ooghe agrees, and she wrote a sweet lullaby—appropriately titled “Alaska, Bitch!”—to express her feelings on the subject.

Enjoy while you imagine Jesse among penguins—er, puffins—operating the world’s first Caribús Hermanos restaurant.
