The Greed-Quest of Well-Known Kadath Pt. 1
Polystar Executive: H.P.! Thanks for coming in, babe.
H P Lovecraft: I only came because I’ve heard the movie business is insane and full of lunatics.
Polystar Executive: I love it! Or should I say, I Lovecraft it!
H P Lovecraft: No, don’t say that.
Polystar Executive: H.P., you’re one of the great, twisted minds in entertainment. The movie business needs you!
H P Lovecraft: I detest moving pictures. Print is my preferred medium. Besides, my works are all in the public domain. There’s nothing stopping you from making “Call of Cthulhu 2: Redial”.

H P Lovecraft: Get this: an amateur astronomer observes the night sky when he sees…strangely colored lights!
Polystar Executive: Uh-huh. And?
H P Lovecraft: And he goes insane!
Polystar Executive: That’s not a story! There’s no hero’s journey, no romance, no villain…
H P Lovecraft: Uh…the astronomer turns from the stars, travels to Polystar Pictures, makes love to the film executive’s fiancée, and then runs over the executive using the Polystar tram.
Polystar Executive: Now we’ve got a story!

Polystar Executive: I’m listening…
H P Lovecraft:And the shark—
Polystar Executive: Has a flame thrower! And the flame-throwing shark battles a giant ape who has a really hot girlfriend!
H P Lovecraft:Um, okay. I guess so?
Polystar Executive: Money!
H P Lovecraft: Ugh, what have I become?
The Greed-Quest of Well-Known Kadath Pt. 3
H P Lovecraft: I have to get away from that studio fool. Being around him has made me a shell of my creative self! “Shell”…hmm. Maybe a giant crab…fights crime…and has a hot girlfriend! Argh, that’s terrible! That exec has given me horror writer’s block!

H P Lovecraft My walk around Springfield gave me a great new idea: a hapless dolt is irradiated in an accident, and turned into—
Polystar Executive: Put a pin in it, H.P. I’m watching this breaking news story.
Kent Brockman: We take you live to the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant, where Homer Simpson has been irradiated into a glowing monstrosity.
Radioactive Homer: RAAAARH!
Polystar Executive: Wow, that’s crazy! Anyway, you were saying?

Is There an Exorcist in the House? Pt. 3
Helen Lovejoy: Father Ben! There are still demons roaming the streets of Springfield.
Father Ben: I’ve seen a mummy or two, but you know, as I search for evil, Springfield actually seems like a pretty nice place! Maybe we could focus on the good in this town instead of looking for evil around every corner?
Helen Lovejoy: That’s crazy talk! Now are you going to do something about these demons, or not?

The Conjurationing Pt. 1
Lisa: So it’s Mopey Mary…fine. I’m just glad you’re teaching Springfield what macabre really is, Mr. Poe.
Edgar Allan Poe: Mopey Mary, if you would be so kind as to terrorize the oafish denizens of this forlorn municipality…
Mopey Mary: I’m on it! Springfield, prepare to have your souls plunged into darkness, despair, and— Wait, is that a pumpkin bouncy house?
Bart: You betcha.
Mopey Mary: BOUNCY-BOUNCY-BOUNCY!

Helen Lovejoy: Father Ben, come quick! We need an exorcism on this monstrous child!
Mopey Mary: Jeez, lady. Take a chill pill.
Lewis Clark: Mopey Mary is our friend.
Father Ben: Well then which one is the possessed child?
Helen Lovejoy: The demonic-looking one!

Father Ben:Then where is the child I’m to be exorcising?
Lisa: Mopey Mary ran off.
Father Ben: I suppose I should get after her then. A little exercise before exorcising never hurt anyone, right?
Lisa: Less hilarity, more holy water, Father.
The Conjurationing Pt. 3
Bart: Lisa, your dusty old dude is so lame!
Lisa: And what have YOU done to make Halloween scarier?
Bart: Allow me to summon the TRUE fossil of fear!
Edgar Allan Poe: Who are you summoning, young man?
Bart: Gimme some room and you’ll see…MAGIC! *waves hands magically*
Lisa: Was that supposed to do something? Because it didn’t.
Bart: Those were “spirit fingers”. And again — KABOOM! *waves hands magically*
Edgar Allan Poe: I’m not seeing the kaboom, boy.

Bart: A very smart and attractive person who loves donuts…trays of donuts…truckloads…I’m talking Montana-size!
Lisa: We really have no shame.
The Conjurationing Pt. 4
Bart: Thanks to the mighty Sky Finger, I now present you with…the TRUE Master of Horror…
Lisa: H.P. Lovecraft!
Edgar Allan Poe: Who in blazes is H.P. Lovecraft?
H P Lovecraft: A REAL author who read your quaint stories and realized that horror should actually scare people!
Edgar Allan Poe: And if I had lived to read anything you’d written, rest assured I would be mocking it as well!

Lisa: And this is what the “Masters of Horror” have reduced Halloween to.
Bart: At least with these two lamewads we’re not running for our lives.
The Conjurationing Pt. 5
Mopey Mary: Hey, check it out — there’s a zombie outbreak happening at the cemetery on the edge of town.
Lisa: Real zombies?
Mopey Mary: Totes. They’re eating people’s brains too! Or trying to. Not sure they’re finding much brain meat in Springfield.
Lisa: I have a brain, so I get that!
Edgar Allan Poe: Flesh-eating zombies?! This is terrible!
H P Lovecraft: My brain is too superior to be eaten!
Bart: Relax, guys. This happens every couple of years. Someone will stop them.
Edgar Allan Poe: And that someone is Edgar Allan Poe! I know just what to summon to thwart this zombie infestation!

Collect Tombstones- x185
Edgar Allan Poe: Where is my infernal raven! Pecking zombies to death would have been so righteous!
Lisa: The raven is already in the game…I mean in Springfield.
H P Lovecraft: And why isn’t my mighty Cthulhu answering my call?
Bart: He’s already here, too.
Mopey Mary: And he’s totally hogging the bouncy house, so if you could tell him to get his big butt out of there, that would be swell.
H P Lovecraft: Ugh. Having all your stories in the public domain is the worst.
Edgar Allan Poe: Agreed. It’s so hard to control anything from the grave.
Spooky Dark Plunger Bundle (Decoration (plunger will toggle all Halloween Facades on/off) + 4 NEW Halloween Facades)- 150
