Halloween 2013

Each year, I just post seasonal links. I used to post them on the 31st, but then you wouldn’t have time to make use of those costume design ideas. Here’s a terrible joke I saw: A skeleton walks into a bar and says “I’d like a beer and a mop.”

  1. Zombies v. animals is awesome. I forwarded it to a coworker teaching ecology this semester and she’s going to share it with the class tomorrow for Halloween (actually on topic because they’re handling scavengers right now. 🙂 )

  2. It’s clear as day. You’ve been reading Boing-Boing. Hell, I’ve been reading it since it was a zine that I found on a rack at that old comic book store you used to work at. Still have some of them.
