Thirty days of suck XIX: radioactive

This shit would be a piece of pumpkin pie if that most beloved of holidays wasn't so far away & why don't we get a day off for Samhain dammit for what does this nation celebrate more than death, either little, bloody, or both?

Given a)the inherent difficulty of capturing grumbling on film, & b)the fact that neither of us are orange, here's the spookiest bit I could come up with.

That's kind of orange. My eyesight sucks. You tell me.

The mug is dead, long live the m -- that's not a mug.

That's a mug. But it's not orange. Fuck off.

Tomorrow, bokeh, Danno.

I can't promise pumpkin pie as it's hard to carry on the wheelie bus, but plots of pumpkin muffins with dark chocolate chips are in the works for the Peonage.

Mug of Madness!

Gasp! Aside from Benito of the Hamlet, you're the greatest human ever.

I just hope the Mug will hold all of my ashes, or there goes my big Sutton Hoo plan.

Just make sure you go on a diet before you kick the bucket, R.G.

I can never find my Samhain matches. They're probably in the same place as the Hannukah candles wherever that is.

if, the reason for the raisins; die old & leave an ugly, yet svelte, corpse.

lisa, did you forget to check under the sacks of kitty litter?

Anytime Lil Edgar is in a post, it's awesome. :)

Well you could always dress John Boehner up as a jack-o-lantern. He does have the complexion for it. I think a candle in the mouth would do the trick.

I'm surprised you didn't whip up a bowl of orange Jell-O. Anyway, now that you've got this all sorted out for us, your loyal fans, we can get on with the rest of our day.

Who needs an official day off? Millions of employees should call in sick on Samhain.

The mug rocks!

It's the worst fashion color for people but looks good on foxes, monarch butterflies, and parrots.

Was someone looking for a match to light?

Randal Graves said...

laura, I'm thinking he needs to make more appearances, but not too many or I'll ruin the brand, & he's my big money-maker.

demeur, I want to scare the children, not send them to the psych ward.

SWA, I was sorting something out?

tom, that's not best practices, why do you hate the GNP?

BB, all glory to the Duchess. I couldn't artistic my way out of a paper bag.

susan, can't argue with you on that, but funny you should mention monarchs, noticed more than a handful either dead or flopping on the ground last weekend. Chalked it up to it being extra windy, but given all the toxins in the air, they might have been knocked out by the same stuff that's turning half the county into zombies.

if, does anybody remember Zippo?
