Several mad scientists lost money they put in a vending machine selling brains last night. These evil geniuses inserted their coins in the money slot, made their selections, and just as the machine was about to vend the brain of their choice, the organs got stuck against the glass on the way down to the dispense tray. Those mad scientists who were cheated had failed to notice the very large “OUT OF ORDER” sign posted on the appliance. They all got no brains.

A customer at a witch’s market in Witches Meadows’ Wicked Forest asked for the large Potion No. 13 this evening, and the head enchantress of the place had to destroy him. She told the guy that she’d sold out of the item. “We have the small one if you’re interested,” she suggested. He proceeded to show the dimensions of the large potion bottle with his hands, and repeated that he was looking for the large No. 13. The witch said, “Yeah, we sold out of the large size.” He then told her he looped the market several times, and he just could not find the large No. 13. “That’s because we sold out,” the witch said a third time. He showed the size of the potion with his hands again. She had to kill him.

The most vicious, snarling and evil blood suckers, skull crushers and soul takers of the monster universe lined up extra early last night in Witches Meadow for the annual Witching Hour Fest-evil, when witches open the Great Portals to allow large groups of said deadly creatures to slide from the monster universe into the human world in preparation for Halloween night. According to Transylveinya officials, all of the murderous fiends were orderly, wore face coverings, and kept six feet apart to protect against COVID-19.

Becca Banshee 1825-2019

Becca Banshee died in her mist early this morning. Becca, who, like all banshees, is known for traveling through mist, was, according to reports, traveling through too much of the stuff, she couldn’t see, she tripped, hit her head, was whaling (before and after the fall), and bystanders thought she was just whaling as banshees do, so they went on their way while yelling for her to shut the hell up — like usual — and, without any medical attention, she perished. Many of Becca’s banshee sisters showed up on the scene to see her spirit carried away. They wouldn’t stop whaling. Enough already.
