Well, there's always next year Jamesy. Then we can have the ghost of Big Bird. How about creating the new Botox mask, you know, stretched prunes with stuck gazes. Now thats scary. And for a little gong show humor we could even have someone knocking at the door holding up the earth and saying "Don't frack me, Don't frack me".
Halloween just gets lamer as you get older.
Alas, you don't suppose it has anything to do with the fact that our daily news headlines are now regularly more frightening than Halloween ever used to be? And even children see them, and know it. When I was a kid, we had drills where we hid under our desks, in case of nuclear war. Now- they have lockdown drills- in case a random insane murderer is loose in your school. Which, unlike nuclear war, happens regularly now, since those people become instant celebrities.
