Make Me Laugh Monday 11/1/10

Considering that Halloween was only yesterday, I figured some funny Halloween stories were perfect for today!!Spooky Halloween Story - Zombie Mistaken for Murder Victim
Bad Segeberg, Hamburg - Germany
Passengers on a train thought that a Halloween reveller, who was dressed up as zombie, was actually a murder victim. They were alarmed because his hands and face were smeared with what looked like blood. Because they suspected foul play, fellow passengers on the train called the police and also alerted the ambulance service.

When paramedics arrived they soon realized that the 24-year old man was in a drunken slumber rather than dead. A little later the police boarded the train, questioned the man and asked him to remove his frightening make-up. He was then allowed to continue his train journey home.

Fire-fighters' Halloween Story

Town Notice:
County Community Burn Ordinances Pertaining to recreational fires and burning of yard and household waste. All outdoor burning is prohibited in the City except for those parcels described in ordinance. Recreational fires are allowed, but not during the hours of 6:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m.

At 8.00pm on October 31st two fire-fighters could see a fire raging in a back yard. It was clearly in breach of the rule on burning leaves after dark. One of the fireman knocked on the door, and they both waited each holding their helmet in their hand. The little old woman opened the door and promptly dropped a bar of candy into each helmet. She then told them, "Aren't you boys a little old for trick or treating?" and closed the door. The fire-fighters left open mouthed.

Tall Tale from Vienna Graveyard

Chris Cross, a tourist in Vienna, is going passed Vienna's Zentralfriedhof graveyard on October 31st. All of a sudden he hears some music. No one is around, so he starts searching for the source. Chris finally locates the origin and finds it is coming from a grave with a headstone that reads: Ludwig van Beethoven, 1770-1827. Then he realizes that the music is the Ninth Symphony and it is being played backward! Puzzled, he leaves the graveyard and persuades Tim Burr, a friend, to return with him.

By the time they arrive back at the grave, the music has changed. This time it is the Seventh Symphony, but like the previous piece, it is being played backward. Curious, the men agree to consult a music scholar. When they return with the expert, the Fifth Symphony is playing, again backward. The expert notices that the symphonies are being played in the reverse order in which they were composed, the 9th, then the 7th, then the 5th. By the next day the word had spread and a throng has gathered around the grave. They are all listening to the Second Symphony being played backward.

Just then the graveyard's caretaker ambles up to the group. Someone in the crowd asks him if he has an explanation for the music.

"Oh, it's nothing to worry about" says the caretaker. "He's just decomposing!"

Tall Tale?
On the 1st of November a motorist called Sutton Council in Surrey England to ask if a car park was haunted. She thought her vehicle was in a different place from where she left it the previous evening.

Funny Halloween Story - Stanley Spitfire

Daredevil pup Stanley attracts more than a few stares when he goes for a 'walk' in his miniature Spitfire. Passers-by might think the four month old wire-haired fox terrier is crazy, but he loves donning his flying hat, goggles and jacket for a spin reports the Metro.

Owners Phil and Sharon Cook, both in their 40s, mocked up the miniature plane for a Halloween party, but Stanley enjoyed it so much that they can be seen trundling around the streets near their home in Leigh, Essex. Mrs Cook added, 'Stanley loves it. We decided to go for a Spitfire as a nod towards Remembrance Day. He is content to sit in the cockpit and watch the world go by.'

The plane is made from an old holdall attached to a skateboard, while Stanley's flying hat is fashioned from an old cuddly toy.
