Let's All Be Cool And Have A Great Halloween This Year. Here's How...

Pro Tips On Being Cool To Trick-or-Treaters This Halloween: 1. Whether or not you “believe in” allergies to peanuts, chocolate, or whatever, is irrelevant. Shut the fuck up about it if a kid says they have one. Have a couple different varieties of candy to give out to kids, including Starbursts and Skittles, which I don’t think have any potential allergens in them, and which most kids love anyway. 2. It doesn’t matter if a kid is shy, autistic, quiet or is just rude. Don’t be that douchebag that makes them say “Trick or Treat” or withhold candy until... Read More

On Halloween, Let's Consider Important Questions. Like, Do Vampires Poop?

It’s Halloween weekend, and along with the tricks and treats, and little goblins and ghouls, there are other things that haunt me. Questions. Queries. Imaginings. About These keep me awake at night. Can zombies swim? Whenever I watch a zombie movie, I always imagine different ways that I could escape zombies if I ever found myself in that situation. I’m sure you can all relate. Now, to be clear, I’m talking about your standard issue, usual zombies that you see in TV and movies, the kind that move very slowly, shambling along, whose bodies are in a constant state of disrepair, and who... Read More

Halloween Column Weekend: Is There A Vampire Workout Video?

To celebrate Halloween, I’m dropping multiple columns for your laughs and enjoyment. Hope you all have a happy and safe holiday! Is there a vampire workout video?

So, I’m wondering, do vampires only “turn” fit people? Or do people make deals with vamps and tell them, “Hey hey hey… let’s wait a minute here, shall we? Give me six weeks to get into shape, and THEN you can suck out my blood and turn... Read More
