HALLOWEEN COUNTDOWN: SKELETON #13
Place of Origin: Bag of party favors
Rib Count: 20
Celebrity Look-alike: At the request of this skeleton I shan't compare him to a celebrity.
Description: This novelty skeleton, rest his soul, bears a message of hope for all of us living in these topsy-turvy times. Read it loud and clear..the Skeleton Making Powers that be still have what it takes to make a proper rubber skeleton! Take comfort in the fact that some things never change. He's only a year old but he's the real deal.. tried and true.. time tested. Even in your gigabitten ipod world with your MTV video games and your myspace races there's still room for a classic, darn it!
He's basic white, he's rubber, he's got two eyes, arms and legs, and a hangin' hoop.. and he dangles, by golly he can dangle with the best of them. And nobody can take that away! Not the shifty-eyed politicians or the back-stabbing attorneys or the corporate fat cats. He may not be "fancy" and he may not be "politically correct" or even "pleasant to look at" but he's the one that will take you out for a game of pool the day after that so-called "skeleton of your dreams" has left you high and dry. Take him or leave him, love him or leave him, what you see is what you get, see my pinkie boy you're stinky. And if you don't like it you'll have to pry this cold rubber skeleton out of my cold dead skeleton hands!
Additional Info: Don't get me started.
Cause of Death: Martyrdom
