Call of Horror

The party conversation took a turn for the macabre last night. TFH 5 had been talking about the economy, which was scary enough, and then Bama Breeze remembered a news story of the day about a funeral home director who left a body in a hearse over an unpaid bill. This train of thought led Bama to tell us a frightening tale she'd read about a psycho who abducted a woman and kept her in a swamp. When the victim tried to escape, she was eaten by the guy's pet alligator.

After a lull, Bama exclaimed, "I feel like I'm having to DRAG conversation out of you guys tonight!"

Apparently we were too petrified to speak, and our little avatars had gone pale.

It's fine to tell scary stories around the campfire, but now we know that a burning tank in Call of Duty: World at War is a good venue for horror, too.
