  1. The life a ghoul is full of stress. Warts galore with careless placement, like the one on the tip of Clayborn’s nose. The chiseled fangs. The demonic eyes. Not exactly an invitation for a hug.

    He was convinced his birth body was a mistake. Warts n all were not what he felt inside. Inside he had the heart of a teddy bear. Clayborn yearned to comfort and to be embraced in return. Was that so wrong for a ghoul?

    Although he didn’t like to judge, his village featured werewolves with their vile habits and the decaying undead, who were more than a little unnerving. It was a terrorvision of spine tingling proportions. Clayborn didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.

    His life was either a sinister scene of slashing menace or a cartoonish caricature of a surreal Skelebob. Clayborn hated his life.

    “Hello. Can you tell me how to get to the city of Hope?”

    The question danced on a sweet sound that had angels folding their wings in gentle reverence. Clayborn gazed into blue eyes as boundless as the sea and a smile more dazzling than the brightest moon.

    “Were you talking to me?” he rasped. “I don’t frighten you?”

    “Why would you do that? Do you know the city of Hope?”

    “Only in my dreams.”

    “Maybe we can find it together.”

    Ten little Skelebobs, all in a row
    One caught warts, nine to go.

    Nine sinister skeletons, dangling on a porch,
    One caught fire from a Jack-o-lantern’s torch.

    Eight vile undead, dancing in the wind,
    It’d be unnerving, had they not been skinned.

    Blue light from the window, reflecting terrorvision,
    Seven clanking corpses under supervision.

    Six little werewolves, hungry and sore
    Spotted six bony Skelebobs lying on the floor.

    Gnashing and tearing, the dogs had a ball,
    eating up skeletons, warts n all!

    Book review of the dead the unloving and other terrible paranormal romances

    Werewolves check
    Undead check
    Vampires check
    Sinister but tall dark and oh so handsome check
    Vampire can go out in sunlight (check the box why) double check.

    This book (insert title here) is soooo boring…
    Give me a vile anti hero spine tingling terror of the night.
    Give me a reason to burn the candle reading pages of deathly pleasure.
    But no we get vampire wanna bes with no warts all teeth and good vapid looks.
    Floppy hair and only mildly unnerving this book, characters can take their
    No warts and all the other paranormal romance skelobob terrorvision nonsense and
    Aagh no it’s a love triangle (insert throwing book across room).

    Time to re-read (insert favorite book here)

    Skelebob what undead thing are you eating?” she asked as she walked up on him hearing moaning, or was that muffled screams….

    Warts, yep I am eating warts,” he responded while taking a momentary break from digging his fangs into the thing he held on the ground with his knees.

    “The heck with warts, you are eating the warts ‘n all! Goodness. You need to learn to be more selective,” she said shaking her head.

    She would not ever know that warts were his favorite parts of this kind of catch; juicy yet spongy and a treat especially after such a long hunt.

    A spine-tingling howl emanated out of the fog as he took another bit. And then there was a snicker, a very sinister snicker that escaped her throat as she looked on with a vile fascination.

    “The werewolves sound pretty close,” she said hearing the footfalls of four, no maybe six quad-peds on the freshly fallen leaves.

    The reality show director continued shooting the unnerving situation he was witnessing. Including the hair-raising reaction on the back of Skelebob’s neck and down his spine.

    This is going to be a ratings winning terrorvision, yes it is!

      I was all “LOL…ewwwww!” and that is the mark of great, grisly humor. 🙂

        Thanks for the compliment! Sometimes I just get lucky and this humor is able to come out of my, devoid of yummy warts, fingers pushed on by my slippery mind.
