A Hallowing Halloween Graveyard Visit

Welcome to the Humor Bloggers dot com Halloween Carnival [insert evil laugh here]. Besides being attacked by vampires and zombies this week, I've read some incredibly spooky ghost stories and a few hilarious poems. I'm starting to have nightmares from the poems.

I've got a little something up my sleeve today. Since I will be leaving town on Halloween, I borrowed a watch from *Dumbledore and programmed it to jump forward to next week so I could find out what happens on Halloween night. I somehow landed in a graveyard and this is what I saw:

  • Hungry zombies. My Evil Twin fed them Cat. Poor kitty. I shall miss the whining, vacuum-stopping-up beastoid.
  • Restless spirits. I'm fairly certain that one of them was Michael Jackson and another may have been my dad, carrying a roll of duct tape.
  • Fresh graves. As I got a little closer, I noticed a common theme. Maybe you bloggers should be extra careful this week. **Sniff**

Oh no! Poor Otin:

Um....that's a little scary. Have you read his stories over at Wizard of Otin? If you go over there, leave the lights on while you read.

Around the corner, I saw this:

DANG! Not Meg from Prefers her Fantasy Life. I loved hearing about her fantasies and I never got a chance to roast her. I'm sure she would have been tasty.

Then I found this one and starting crying:

Uh oh. Poor Quirkster. She was my bestest blogging loon. I shall miss her.

Then I noticed her new neighbor:

YIKES! This is unbelievable. I remember Deb saying she didn't like cats. On the bright side, no more bad hair days up on the Maine coast.

Here's another one. Oh, this is really awful. Poor Mama-face.

PHEW! I'm glad that one was a false alarm. What an odd joke..... Never fear. She is still hard at work over at Blog Ignoramus.

I hope what I've seen doesn't come true. These are really great folks. Maybe it was just the stupid watch. I might have had better luck with the **Doctor's TARDIS!

*Harry and Hermione used the watch in The Prisoner of Azkaban. If you don't know what this is, it's possible that a zombie has already eaten part of your brain or you've been in a coma for the past ten years or you're a normal person... No, that can't be it.

**Doctor Who can time travel in this machine that looks like a British Telephone box. If you don't know what this is, it's possible a zombie has already eaten part of your brain or you have a life and don't watch British television... No, that can't be it.

creative indeed

VE said...

Hey, I knew what those time machines were! Only because I've been dining on zombie brains for breakfast...

honeypiehorse said...

Wait a minute, did you create those crazy tombstones or actually find them? Very funny!

CatLadyLarew said...

I love these, Reffie! And since I see I'm not dead, I guess I'll go ahead with my evil plans for the day!

But wait... is Quirkster really dead or just undead? Inquiring minds want to know.

Anonymous said...

I'm the UNdead, of course!


And I love my headstone! But can we add some bling to it? Please? Maybe a nice diamond in the shape of a brain. Or perhaps some red ruby intestines?

hee hee hee

Thanks Reffie!

@Queen-size - Thanks!

@VE - I hope your breakfast is digesting well.

@Thanks. I created them via

@CatLady - Thanks. You got off lucky this time. ;-)

It seems that Quirky is indeed, undead.

@Quirky - You get what you pay for. ;-)

The World As I See It said...

I like it!! Very creative!

Jenn Thorson said...

You clever bunny! :) Very nicely done. Though I'm sorry to see so many fine Humorbloggers bite the dust. I shall miss them.

I am also sorry about your ex-cat. :)

Me-Me King said...

Good, at least I'm among the un-dead. Love the headstones, very cool!

ReformingGeek said...

@World - Thanks!

@Jenn - Thanks. Maybe we can reverse time. Where's Hiro when we need him?

@Me-Me King - Thanks. Yes, you survived this one but you just never know.....

The Constant Complainer said...

Hey, wow, that tombstone builder is pretty cool. And yes, Otin's blog is excellent indeed. Happy Halloween!

Deb said...

I KNEW I should have killed that friggin' crooked head cat when I had the chance!

If Quirky gets bling, I want bling too. A fancy new blow dryer and some hair glue so the fog doesn't wreak havoc with the 'do would be nice. Please?

This was great, RG!!

ReformingGeek said...

@Constant - Thanks. You, too. Be careful.....

@Deb - Thanks. No bling unless I get some donations down here. ;-)

Hair glue will make a mess within your casket. Just go for the natural look 'cause nobody's lookin' no more, 'K?

Hit 40 said...

Brilliant!!! Wonderful halloween fun. Love it!!!

How did Otin die?

otin said...

LMAO!!! First Brian Miller hangs me, and then you bury me!!

Then you tell about my spooky stories and I post a children's story! hahaha!

ReformingGeek said...

@Hit40 - Thanks. I'm not sure what happened. There were rumors of a serial killer in the area...

@otin - I try to keep you guessing!

Now THAT post made me miss being a part of humorbloggers. Just a wee part.

The Old Silly said...

I felt like doing "The Monster Mash" reading this post ... it was a graveyard smash!

Skye said...

Awesome job on the tombstones! But as Quirky is already Undead, why would there be a stone for her? Can the Undead really die and need to be burried?

ReformingGeek said...

@Dana - You've got the funny, Dana.

@Marvin - Thanks. ** dancing **

@Skye - Thanks. Quirky is one of many talents. Perhaps it is just her ghost that thinks it is undead.

Prefers Her Fantasy Life said...

Great job on the tombstones!! I hope I haven't died by DUI -- Driving Under the Influence (of my kids)!

ReformingGeek said...

@Prefers - Thanks. Something fell out of the sky. That's what I heard.

Funnyrunner said...

Oh you have such holiday spirit! I'm dreading to see how cheery you'll be at christmastime/hanukkah time...

Jean Knee said...

if one of them really dies the cops are gonna come looking for you

ReformingGeek said...

@Funnyrunner - Bah humbug.

@Jean - Oops.

otin said...

Still got me buried, huh? LOL

mama-face said...


I'd say poor Mama-Face; FALSE ALARM!? Not good enough to die? Too young to die? Too good to die?


I love an odd joke. It takes one to know one.


ReformingGeek said...

@otin - I thought I saw a little movement around your stone.

@mama-face - I think it means you are smart and have managed to elude Mr. G. Reaper. Happy Halloween to you, too.

Collette said...

BooHoo, sniff sniff...It's all so sad. So, when's the reading of the wills??? Do we get anything? HUH?
Ahem! Uh, sorry I got a little ahead of myself there.
Damn, I better watch it or Quirky will be sending those zombiez to munch on my brainz...LOL!
Love this post!

ReformingGeek said...

@Collette - Thanks. Yes, so sad. So very sad. Watch out for unsettled spirits.
