folk tales

BACK FROM THE DEAD

There is a great misconception that states after you are dead and buried, that’s the end of it.  Charlie Barker should be enough evidence that this isn’t always the case.  But, for the incurable skeptics out there, he has a few more points of example for you.

Two roommates at a boarding school talk over past mistakes in I NEED A RIDE.  Let’s hope that their transgressions were limited to life and not the afterlife.  Then, a young girl living with her uncle wonders if his anger and frustration in life carried over into the next existence in FIT TO BE TIED.  The third undead tale is derived from a popular ditty from all the way down under in Australizomba.  Find out the meaning behind the  song of WALTZING MATHILDA.  The outback just got a little more scary.

Things got a little dead today at the circus, my friends.  Maybe you should head out and return next time when it can be a bit more lively for you.  We may even play some games.

URBAN LEGENDS

The infamous urban legend makes a stop at the sideshow for today.  Three absolutely true tales, as first related by a friend of a friend.  Stop and see if you’ve heard of these.

The first one is a classic about a man in a hotel room where SOMETHING STINKS.  That can’t be good.  The second legend is about what happens when you join THE ONE DOLLAR HORROR CLUB.  That can’t be good.  Finally, we give a listen to THE CURSED AUDIO CASSETTE.  That can’t be good.

There are more where those came from, but only during hours of operation.  Until then, the sideshow is closed.  Come back for more on Thursday.

ST. PADDY WAGON

The luck of the Irish be with you.  The canvas is adorned in green.  Tapestries the color of shamrock grace the haunted halls.  Wait until you see the sideshow!

The trilogy for today all deal with the Emerald Isle.  It’s Saint Patrick’s Day at the circus.  First off, we find out what happens when THE BANSHEE WAILS.  Then, it’s THE TIDES OF MARCH, where we find out what creatures rule the unruly sea.  Lastly, is your luck in our out?  It might pay off if your talisman WORKED LIKE A CHARM.

Once you give them a listen, you’ll be sure as a shillelagh is strong that you’ve felt the Irish in you.  At least, you’ve been visited by the spirit of the Irish.  Now, be off to your green beer and corned beef and cabbage.   But leave the leprechauns alone.  They’re awful beasties when provoked.
