"A Gem of a Romance" & "The Bag Lady"
- A Gem of a Romance
Once upon a slime, a girl ghoul fell in love with a mummy. Alas, the
girl ghoul did not know much about the proper care of mummies, and in
a couple of weeks the mummy began to unravel and disintegrated. Which
just goes to prove that a ghoul and her mummy are soon parted.
Then the ghoul fell in love with a little devil, who turned out to be
a loving and generous sweetheart. The little devil showered the girl
ghoul with bright flowers, high-fashion clothes, and expensive
jewelry. Which just goes to prove that demons are a ghoul's best fiend.

The Bag Lady
A rather harried and frazzled woman arrived at an airport one day
struggling with a dilapidated old suitcase made entirely of Styrofoam.
It was barely in one piece and covered with duct tape.
Seeing this, a security guard went over to help the poor lady with her
things. As they walked to her gate, he inquired casually, "Madam, if I
may ask, why are you carrying your things in this horrible old
She looked at him and kinda smiled as she replied, "Even though it may
crumble, there's no case like foam."
