BWAHHHHHHH! (In my spooky vampire voice.) It's once again time for that orangy-and-blackiest holiday of them all, Halloween! Which is coming up in only thirty-one short, chilly fall nights, so you'd better stock up on candy to hand out now. I really mean it.Do not run out of Halloween candy! This month, all month, you should be checking my humble little puppet-town cow-blog for titanic tales of those terrifying tots, those beastly babbling babies, the carrot- and tow-headed kids of komedy, of whom it has been said, and well-said: bplsfhh! That's right: it's time for the pair that's a precious as a pumpkin but in more mischief than a monstrous mummy: it's A Sugar and Spike Halloween! And, as in pervious spine-tingling Octobers, I'm once again part of the Countdown to Halloween web ring of Halloweeny horror! Because, y'knowm two kids, not toilet trained yet...horrific! Be sure to visit the other members of Countdown to Halloween for lots of other fun stuff leading up to our scariest day, because I'm pretty sure you'll find witches, goblins, ghouls, vampires, and a Frankenstein or two in there.
So, in the words of Bernie the Brain: let us commence our celebration of A Sugar and Spike Halloween!
