Spider in the Hairdo! (URBAN LEGEND)

With Halloween quickly approaching one thing that's fun to do is get together with your friends and tell spooky stories to really get into the mood. And what better tales are there than the ones based completely in 100% reality. Like the one about the guy in the backseat of the car with the axe! Or the one about the stoned babysitter who microwaved that baby!! Yeah, all of these stories, or “urban legends” as the faithless label them, believe it or not, really did happen… uh, to a friend of a friend. Like this one, courtesy of Mitch O'Connell…

This isn't funny. A friend of my mom's died this way. Except I think it was scorpions.

I'm waiting for Hollywood to come up with a ridiculously stupid updating of "the killer terrorizing the babyitter from the upstairs telephone extension." Only this time he's text messaging the victim on her cellphone and the death threats use abbreviated lol, iggy (I'm gonna get you!) and those little frowny mean faces with devil horns and stuff.

It's quite possible this lame idea was already utilized in a Japanese horror movie though. Coming soon to America as a Roy Lee remake!

--And it shall star Paris Hilton,and feature a top-billed Wes Craven as the sheriff,and it's retarded fans will defend it by calling it Tourneur-esque,even though they've never watched one of his movies,and LL cool j will cameo as the token black guy who gets killed after 19 minutes but will make a mint off the song based on the movie...man that sounds scarier than my METHOD MAN & RED MAN MEET CANDYMAN idea.

I just read that they're remaking Hitchcock's The Birds starring Naomi Watts.

It's really really gotta stop...

I once started a joke that started the whole world laughing...

I remember that one. Here's the punchline: Would I? Funny stuff.

Karswell said...

No no, the punchline was

"wood eye."

I have this O'Connell story from his cool collection of random art and other comic stories too. Great stuff! Maybe someday you could post Tor Loves Betty!

Good idea, I have that Mitch collection too so I'll make a note of your request. FYI: The scans for this post came from a Dark Horse comic book one-shot called Urban Legends from '93... it has a cool Dan Clowes cover with a sweaty guy eating a batter-fried rat. "Good lord that ain't chicken--!"
