Chiseling with Fear

Two men were walking home after a Halloween party and
decided to take a shortcut through the cemetery just for
laughs. Right in the middle of the cemetery, they were
startled by a tap-tap-tapping noise coming from the misty

Trembling with fear, they found an old man with a hammer and
chisel, chipping away at one of the headstones.

"Holy cow, Mister," one of them said after catching his
breath. "You scared us half to death -- we thought you were a
ghost! What are you doing working here so late at night?"

"My family are such fools!" the old man grumbled. "They misspelled my
name and here I have to correct it!"


A Cabbie & A Nun

  A cabbie picks up a nun. She gets into the cab, and the cab driver won't stop staring at her.
She asks him why is he staring and he replies, "I have a question to ask you but I don't want to offend you.  
She answers, 'My dear son, you cannot offend me.   When you're as old as I am and have been a nun a long as I have, you get a chance to see and hear just about everything. I'm sure that there's nothing you could say or ask that I would find offensive."   
"Well, I've always had a fantasy to have a nun kiss me."  
She responds, "Well, let's see what we can do about that:   #1, you have to be single and #2 you must be Catholic."
The cab driver is very excited and says, "Yes, I am single and I'm Catholic too!"
The nun says "OK, pull into the next alley."  
He does and the nun fulfills his fantasy.
But when they get back  on the road, the cab driver starts crying. "My dear child, said the nun, why are you crying?"  
"Forgive me sister, but I have sinned. I lied, I must confess, I'm married and I'm Jewish."
The nun says, "That's OK,   I'm on my way to a Halloween party my outfit is just an old habit."


Two Nuns and a Mini Dracula

Two nuns, Sister Mary Agnes and Sister Mary Vincent, are traveling through Europe in their car, sightseeing in Transylvania. As they are stopped at a traffic light, out of nowhere, a small vampire jumps onto the hood of the car and hisses at them through the windshield.

"Quick, quick!" shouts Sister Mary Agnes, "What should we do?"

"Turn the windshield wipers on. That will get rid of the abomination," says Sister Mary Vincent.

Sister Mary Agnes switches on the wipers, which knock the mini-Dracula around. But, he hangs on and continues hissing at the nuns. "What shall I do now?" she shouts.

"Try the windshield washer. I filled it with holy water before we left the Vatican," replies Sister Mary Vincent.

Sister Mary Agnes turns on the windshield washer. The vampire screams as the water burns his skin, but he hangs on and continues hissing at the nuns.

"Now what?" shouts Sister Mary Agnes.

"Show him your cross," says Sister Mary Vincent.

"Now you're talking," says Sister Mary Agnes. She then opens the window and shouts, "Get the hell off our car!"


bat.wmf (6756 bytes)A Bat Story
From Sherrye

A vampire bat came flapping in from the night covered in fresh blood and parked himself on the roof of the cave to get some sleep.  Pretty soon all the other bats smelled the blood and began hassling him about where he got it.  He told them to knock it off and let him get some sleep but they persisted until finally he gave in.  "OK, follow me," he said and flew out of the cave with hundreds of bats behind him.  Down through a valley they went, across a river and into a forest full of trees.  Finally he slowed down and all the other bats excitedly milled around him.  "Now, do you see that tree over there?" he asked.  "Yes, yes, yes!" the bats all screamed in a frenzy.  "Good," said the first bat, "Because I DIDN'T!"


Just in case you have forgotten the rules for a safe and Happy Halloween!

1.  When it appears that you have killed the monster, NEVER check to see if it's really dead.

2.   Never read a book of demon summoning aloud, even as a joke.

3.   Do not search the basement, especially if the power has gone  out.

4.   If your children speak to you in Latin or any other language  which they should not know, shoot them immediately. It will save  you a lot of grief in the long run. However, it will probably take several  rounds to kill them, so be prepared. This also applies to kids who speak  with somebody else's voice.

5.   When you have the benefit of numbers, NEVER pair off and go it  alone.

6.   As a general rule, don't solve puzzles that open portals to  Hell.

7.   Never stand in, on, or above a grave, tomb, or crypt. This  would apply to any other house of the dead as well.

8.   If you're searching for something which caused a loud noise and  find out that it's just the cat, GET THE HELL OUT!

9.   If appliances start operating by themselves, do not check for short circuits; just get out!

10.   Do not take ANYTHING from the dead.

11.   If you find a town which looks deserted, there's probably a  good reason for it. Don't stop and look around.

12.   Don't fool with recombinant DNA technology unless you're sure  you know what you're doing.

13.   If you're running from the monster, expect to trip or fall  down at least twice. Also note that, despite the fact that you are  running and the monster is merely shambling along, it's still moving fast enough to catch up with you.

14.   If your companions suddenly begin to exhibit uncharacteristic behavior such as hissing, fascination for blood, glowing eyes, increasing hairiness, and so on, kill them immediately.

15.   Stay away from certain geographical locations, some of which are listed here: Amityville, Elm Street, Transylvania, Nilbog (you're in trouble if you recognize this one), the Bermuda Triangle, or any small town in Maine.

16.   If your car runs out of gas at night on a lonely road, do not  go to the nearby deserted looking house to phone for help. If you think that it is strange because you thought you had 3/4 of a tank, shoot yourself instead. You are going to die anyway, and most likely be eaten.

17.   Beware of strangers bearing strange tools. For example: chainsaws, staple guns, hedge trimmers, electric carving knives, combines, lawnmowers, butane torches, soldering irons, band saws, or any devices made from deceased companions.

18.   If you find that your house is built upon a cemetery, now is the time to move in with the in-laws. This also applies to houses that had previous inhabitants who went mad or committed suicide or died in some horrible fashion, or had inhabitants who performed satanic practices in your house.

19.  If you find that:
a. your house is built upon or near a cemetery,
b. was once a church that was used for black masses,
c. had previous inhabitants who went mad or committed suicide or died in some horrible fashion, or
d. had inhabitants who performed satanic practices in your house,

20.  Don't fool with recombinant DNA technology unless you're sure you know what you are doing.


Halloween One Liners

One witch told another witch, "I want one of those new computers that has a spell checker."

Don't bother inviting the Invisible Man to your Halloween party. He
won't show up. Sometimes he makes excuses, but they're all transparent.

You don't have to worry about Daylight Savings Time at Halloween. The holiday is always on Green Witch Mean Time.

Western Union opened an office in a graveyard so the spooks could send and receive cryptograms.

Vampire pick-up line: "What's your type?"

A vampire joined the police force so he could learn the correct way to get a stakeout.



Halloween Groaner

A man was walking home alone one night when he heard a "BUMP....BUMP....BUMP..." behind him. Walking faster, he looked back, making out an image of an upright coffin banging its way down the middle of the street towards him...."BUMP...BUMP...BUMP..."

The man began to run toward his home, and the coffin boiunced  after him faster....faster...BUMPBUMPBUMP.

He ran up to his door, fumbled with his keys, opened the door, rushed in, and locked it behind him. The coffin crashed through his door, with the lid of the coffin clapping BUMP...BUMP...BUMP... on the heals of the terrified man. The man rushed upstairs to the bathroom and locked himself in, heart pounding.

With a CRASH, the coffin broke down the door, coming slowly toward  him.  The man while screaming, reached for something, anything....all he can find was a box of cough drops which he hurled at the coffin...and suddenly "the coffin stops."
