My turn at 15 minutes of fame...

The Tuscaloosa News ran an article on me and my Hallowe'en addiction.

They SEVERELY edited what I had to say about Trunk or treat.  The words blasphemy, abomination, idiotic, obscene, filthy, stupid, asinine, ignorant, or &%^$#@!!!! weren't even mentioned.   I feel censored.

CONGRATULATIONS about the news piece. It's also awesome for you to give to such a worthy cause through your time and talents.

Thanks so much for sharing!

So I guess you don't like trunk or treat? Still, it was a good story! Your yard looks wonderful

Pam Morris said...

Kreepy Kara said...

At least you got the word out that Halloween is a time for fun and great memories. Keep up the great work! We need many more people out there like you to keep the Halloween spirit alive.

I have famous friends, albeit filtered famous friends.

Awwwwwww, y'all all are too nice...when I take over the world, I'll make sure all of you get cushy palace jobs!

Stephanie D. said...

So COOL! Even with the censoring!

So what exactly qualifies as a cushy palace job?

Mr. Macabre said...

Oh probably like official pop tart toaster person, maybe official digger of the cotton out of the aspirin bottle person, it takes a lot of people to run a megalomaniac-ruler-of-the-world's palace!

What a great article - Congrats! I loved everything you said about Halloween and what it means to you! I need to Google "trunk or treat". It's something I've heard about a lot but never seen exactly what it is. I'm sure it's something lame.

This is so cool! Congrats! Itr is a good thing that Trunk or treat does not happen in my city.

Thank you for using your labor of love to benefit the Humane Society - you are my hero!
Censored or not, any publicity is usually good publicity, and I hope this article generates even more traffic and donations.
Impressive coffin! And great photo, too. I love how you look kind of one-legged (are there ANY "normal" pics of you? LOL)

Mr. Macabre said...

@ Peter,
We've collected over 200.00 already with light turnout and even without the television broadcast being aired yet!
As for normal pictures, uh, no, there's no normal pictures of me that I'm aware of LOL!
