HALLOWEEN COUNTDOWN: SKELETON #20


Era: 1990s
Glow-in-the-Dark?: No
Place of Origin: Unknown
Rib Count: 10
Celebrity Look-alike: A member of the Star Wars Cantina Band Amy Sedaris as Jerri Blank
Description: Would you like a skeleton to go with that pile of linking rings?
I suppose it's not something I should make light of.. I guess I'm just trying to ease the blow. As you may remember, I touched on the topic of 'metal ring' skeleton construction early in the countdown. After some careful thought I decided it was finally time that you understand what can happen when it's handled all wrong. I'm very sorry you had to see this.

On top of that, it's a "key fob" (which is just a fancy word for 'keychain' that I thought might be fun to use.) Now, in the past I've been known to eagerly promote skeleton keychains among drivers of all ages. Because until recently I've been a firm believer that the sobering message they send is certain to make people mindful of the consequences of bad driving habits. However, this "skeleton" is so absurdly long and unwieldy I fear that it's bound to get tangled around gas pedals, thus causing more accidents than it would prevent. Consider this a consumer advisory.
Additional Info: I think this was a gift.
Cause of Death: Dismemberment
Rating: 3.0

I don't know, he's kind of endearing in his own techno-industrial kind of way...

Damn young skeletons and their piercings. You know that neck link is what really throws this off for me.

Nemo you're positive remark is making me feel like such a hater.

Gentle nailed it and Travis's lol confirmed it so I had no choice to but adjust the entry.

Smurf I should have written about rebellious young skeletons. I have a lot to say on the matter.
