Once upon a time, it was Crankenstein's favorite time of year...HALLOWEEN!  Except this year was different...and it turned everything from his favorite time to his not so favorite time when the weather didn't cooperate, the ghastly act of having the same costume is committed, and someone decides to invade his candy stash.  The horror!  I mean, it's enough to turn anyone's frown...well, least until he's faced with something that makes the whole over-reactions, the whole absurdity of the situation...something else.  Have you ever had someone point out just how out of character YOU were acting?  Maybe you were overly tired, or HANGRY, or just plain fed up with everything, and your behavior was so LARGER than life that your friends simply had to make you see that 2 plus 2 equals 4?  Yeah, same here, with riotously fun and funny results!

A great read for the Halloween season or anytime someone might just need a reminder of how ridiculously large they blew something out of proportion and need a moment to regroup!
