A Very Addams Creepmas: Day 13


Pesky carollers are dealt with Addams style: boiling oil! 

A cartoon by Charles "Chas" Addams.

  3. Last year this day we were visited by a couple of Lucias (check my latest post for info about that). They were so cute so the got a lot of candy from me. We live in an awkward place so we never get visitors at halloween and such events. Only Jehovas witnesses comes to talk about the end of the world :P wish I had a boiling oil bowl then.

    1. Hi linnea-maria,

      Yes, there are definitely times when a cauldron of boiling oil would come in very handy! ;) One hot summer's day, when my son was younger, he was playing outside with water-filled balloons. When he came inside for a snack, he left one of his water balloons sitting on the front doorstep. In the meantime, some religious folk came knocking. When I answered the door they pointed at the water balloon and said, "I see you were expecting us!" Haha. At least they had a sense of humour.

      I'll be around to your blog soon to read your "Lucias" post! :)

  4. Oh, what a classic moment! I'm of course thinking of this being played out in The Addams Family movie. Here are a few more movie ideas taken from the old cartoons:

    1. Hi Justine,

      I remember when I first saw 'The Addams Family' movie, I got a tingle up my spine at the re-enactment of the boiling oil cartoon. Haha. It was such a perfect opening sequence.

      Thank you for the link. I really enjoyed reading that Addams Family trivia! :)
