Cartload of Clearance K-Mart Corpses

Ace's 13 days of Halloween has begun. Until October 31, we'll be publishing anything remotely creepy or evocative of the many moods of Halloween. And this year we have some temporary help.

You see, about a week after Halloween last year I bought a cart of corpses on clearance at K-Mart. Aside from thinking they looked cool, I guess I felt sorry for them too. I mean, it's enough of an indignity being modeled after a generic dead person - but to be unwanted by the American consumer...well, clearanced corpses are almost as sad as post-Easter Peeps so, I adopted them.

Problem is, now they want amusement. Oh yeah, did I mention that I may have accidentally brought them to sort-of-life when, in an attempt to activate the one electronic one, I mistakenly read through the back of the thin paper of the instruction sheet and said "seirettab AA tresni"?

So, since I'm hosting these corpses until the veil between life and death thins on Halloween and they can go...well, wherever the spirits of Halloween decor go when they materially go back to the attic, I may as well show them around Hutchinson, Kansas, and environs. Got any suggestions?

Well, I'm sure you've already taken them to all of your usual haunts, but may I suggest that if they are around the day after Halloween, you take them to the Anchor Inn for la Dia de los Muertes...

Funny you'd mention that...I'm already looking for sombreros. Funny thing - Ace has about seven of them but I have none for adult humans.
