As I write this post — in Salem, MA, no less — I am both joyful and wistful that it is mid-October. Joyful because we are situated snugly right in the middle of our Prime Month, the best month, perfectly enveloped within our favorite season. But also sad, since October is already halfway over! It’s already been going by WAY too fast.
If you agree, then I think it’s time to break out some Halloween-related humor! It’ll cheer us all up.
- First, have a good chuckle at the Onion‘s Halloween history timeline, starting with Native Americans’ discovery of pumpkins “while searching for a foyer adornment that would go well with dried cornstalks” and ending with the “eighth f***ing installment of the Saw franchise.” (Quick shout-out to my dear friend Monique, who sent me this link.)
- Second, watch this hilarious Key & Peele sketch that takes us back to the early boardroom-planning phase of Gremlins 2. The best part is that the ludicrous and seemingly random plot ideas they describe while spitballing are in the actual movie itself!
- Thirdly, here’s a collection of funny images, starring Slenderman, the IKEA-catalog version of Freddy, pets, and more signs of the impending pumpkin-spice-ocalypse.
