The Tale of the Mysterious Hellhound
You grab a roasting stick and mercilessly skewer your marshmallow. As you roast, you listen to a spine-curdling, blood-tingling tale from Roger Kenny, the Roastmaster:
"Once, in a time that was more brightly colored and cheaply animated than our own," Roger says, holding a flashlight under his chin to maximize the spookiness, "there were four teenagers and a dog who traveled around in a van, solving mysteries. One evening, they found themselves in a haunted house. A spoooky ghost had settled there, and it chased them up and down the hallways, rattling its chains and moaning."
"That does sound pretty spooky," another roaster says.
"Well -- not really. It turned out that the ghost was just old Mr. Finley, who ran the amusement park. The spooky part is that, as soon as the ghost appeared, the teenagers' dog began to speak! And it spoke in a tortured parody of human speech: 'relp me, Raggy,' it would say. 'I am an abomination and rould re rilled. Rill re, Raggy.'"
"Okay, that's incredibly spooky."
"And it gets worse! It turns out the dog had a hellborn spawn, a scrappy little nauseating puppy! It completely ruined the teenagers' mystery-solving adventures."
You feel goosebumps prickle on your skin as you ponder the horrible hellhound and its misbegotten offspring. Like, spooky, man.
