Just some bros out enjoying the night.
And if you’re wondering where the Bride of Frankenstein is, this is boys’ night. Also, the Phantom of the Opera wasn’t invited because he made out with Dracula’s girlfriend even though they weren’t dating at the time, but still, that’s just not cool, man.
“Yo, Vinny, you heard about these two bad dudes who just moved into town? They’s out cleanin’ up the streets, already paid a visit to Charlie’s Place, shut down the whole operation. Threw Petey into a mirror. They’re not takin’ no guff from nobody! I heard the tall green one once tossed a chick into a lake for lookin at him the wrong way. And the pale guy, he trains wolves or something and does acrobatics. I’m a little scared of these guys, Vinny. You think they might come pay us a visit?”
And thus ends my month of Halloween-related posts. Hope there was something here that either tickled your funny bone or ripped out your laughter tube. Won’t be doing another month-long posting cycle in a while, but I’ve got some more fun stuff planned for Thanksgiving and Christmas, including possible further holiday shenanigans for Betsy & Waffles. Hope everyone has a safe and scary Halloween!
Betty, did you hear about that Wolfman fellow? Oh, I’ve heard he’s with a different girl every night. Hmph. What a cad he is, thinking he can just waltz in here and try to date every girl. Did you know he tried out for the basketball team, too? My Dennis is the team captain, and he says he thinks this Wolfman fellow is gunning for his position. And he was chatting up all the cheerleaders! I can’t believe him! Hush, here he comes now! Oh, Hi, Wolfman. How are you? Good, good. Gosh, I really don’t like him! I can’t believe you think he’s cute, Betty!
What a jerk the Creature is, amiright guys? He’s always taking our balls whenever we hit them too close to his lagoon. I mean, stop being such an ass-face, man! Just give us our ball. We’re practicing to be in the major leagues! Didn’t you hear about those open try-outs? I guess not, since you’re always in your lagoon! Pfft, whatever, man. I’m out of here.
After yesterday’s intense Betsy & Waffles comic, I thought it’d be nice to take a break and close out the month with something simple. And now, a question: How does that mummy talk through those bandages? I bet no one can understand him. He probably has a devil of a time ordering a pizza over the phone.
What do you offer for their lives? Your answer quick – they can survive but a few moments!

And with that, Universal Horror week draws to a close. I’ve had a lot of fun doing these, working in this style and revisiting these great movies. I hope this week’s posts have given you a reason to watch some of these classics and get in the Halloween spirit. There are a lot worse ways to spend a weekend.
Put it back. Bury it where you found it. You have read the curse. You dare defy it?
