HALLOWEEN COUNTDOWN: SKELETON #21
Let's continue to get some of the lesser skeletons out of the way so that the second half of the countdown will be a better experience, shall we? Here's another lackluster entry...
Place of Origin: Unknown
Rib Count: 12
Celebrity Look-alike: One of those guys from Sesame Street that goes "yip, yip, yip, uh-huh."
Description: I would tell you that he's the second to smallest skeleton in the countdown, but if I get into all that then where will it ever end? What? Next do you want me to start reporting things like 'this one ranks number 28 in weight and 7th in white-ness?' I can't.. I just can't go there!!
I'm sorry, I didn't mean to snap at you like that. It's just that seeing this skeleton's smug face just makes me so darn mad. It's that cocky head-tilt and the way he crosses his legs all nonchalant-like. And what could he possibly be so proud of? He doesn't even have a nose hole! Well.. there is one thing I suppose. He knows what it's like "on the other side." And that really gets my goat. I try to put him in his place with cheap shots like "Your hands look like unearthed tree roots!" or "My, that's some real nice unsightly excess plastic you've got hanging off your ribs there." But after about a half-hour of this I wipe the sweat from my brow only to I realize that as long as I'm alive I can never be as easygoing as he is, and he just smiles back as if to say.. "Gotcha again, big guy."
Additional Info: This is yet another mysterious stowaway in my collection. I have no recollection of his entrance into my life, I just know I've had him since I was a kid.
Cause of Death: Maxing and relaxing
