I remember when I was in 6th grade there was an assistant teacher who refused to celebrate Halloween. I came to school on Oct 31st that year with some vampire fangs and said “hey Mrs. ___________, are you going to take your son out trick-or-treating tonight?”
She was there with her 6 year-old, and appeared to be in the middle of packing up and leaving.
“No Alexei. I’m not.” She didn’t seem very happy. Then she sort of left abruptly trying seemingly trying to prevent her son from seeing all the costumed kids walking into the classroom. It was only 8:30am. I guess she wasn’t sticking around that day. I wasn’t sure what to make of our uncomfortable interaction.
Well, now it’s 2010 and as far as I know everybody loves vampire fangs. I mean, they made a whole book series out of it and a handful of crappy movies to go along. Vampires aren’t even scary any more… now they’re more like a watered down versions of Robert Smith that brood around all day and think about problems that only come along with considerable amounts of privilege.
Fangs are so ill dood. I’d totally date a girl with fangs.
Chris Knoeckel sent us the photo above. It’s a Jack’O’Lantern he carved. Hope you get a kick out of it like we did.
Happy Halloween and have a safe weekend everybody!
