The Coffin

Bump
Bump
Bump
Bump, behind him. Walking faster he looks back, and makes out the image of an upright coffin
 banging its way down the middle of the street towards him, 
bump, bump, bump.

Terrified, the man begins to run towards home, the coffin bouncing
 faster, faster, faster, faster. 
Bump, bump, bump
.

He runs up to his door, fumbles with his keys, opens the door, rushes in, slams and locks the door behind him
.

However, the coffin crashes through his door with the lid of the coffin clapping
, clappity-bump, clappity-bump, clappity-bump, 
on the heels of the terrified man.

Rushing upstairs to the bathroom the man locks himself in. His heart is pounding, his head is reeling, his breath is coming in sobbing gasps.

With a loud CRASH the coffin breaks down the door, bumping and clapping towards him
.

The man screams and reaches for something, anything, but all he can find is a bottle of 
cough syrup
. Desperate he throws the cough syrup at the coffin. 
The coffin stops.

Happy Halloween!

  2. oooh spooky. I'm going to check the medicine cabinet for cough syrup. I think I'll want to carry a bottle around with me today. Or better yet maybe a gun that shoots cough drops?

  5. A Halloween-themed joke. Love it! Interesting story--I was writing a story for a client of mine and had to contact different funeral homes to ask if anyone ever bought coffins for Halloween. The answer was...uh...NO. (Said with a weird, "Why would anyone do that?" question in their voices!) Indeed, you can buy fake, cheap costumes for decorating, but my client thought some people might be REALLY committed to their decorations!

  8. Tap Tap Tap
    Two men were walking home after a Halloween party and decided to take a shortcut through the cemetery just for laughs. Right in the middle of the cemetery they were startled by a tap-tap -tapping noise coming from the misty shadows. Trembling with fear, they found an old man with a hammer and chisel, chipping away at one of the headstones. "Holy cow, Mister," one of them said after catching his breath, "You scared us half to death -- we thought you were a ghost! What are you doing working here so late at night?" "Those fools!" the old man grumbled. "They misspelled my name!"

    Happy Halloween Saturday Sandee. Boo.
