Joke-Off: Horror Movies About Real Life Problems

in Joke Off

It’s October: spooky scary time. My favorite time of the year: the one month between 105 degrees and 0 degrees in Texas. The month with the best decorations. The month in which I can wear skeleton things and pentagrams on my nails and no one thinks I’m an almost-thirty Hot Topic manager.

I love it so.

No October is complete without Horror Movies, though. My issue is that they’re so unrealistic. No one’s going to run you down in a forest outside of Appalachia. No one’s going to emerge from a lake and spawn 1,100 terrible sequels including one with a Destiny’s Child.

I think we can do better. Add yours into the comments below!

Handflapper: I washed dishes for six months once when my husband and I were living in a 200-year-old house we were attempting to restore. Really makes you appreciate Little Fucking House on the Fucking Prairie, doesn’t it?
I’m on a fundraising team for the Texas Equal Access Fund, and if you believe in our cause (which can be a touchy subject for some, and you can read about here), I’d really appreciate your help. If you’d like to donate to the cause, you can do so here–you can even donate anonymously if you’d like.

I’d just like to second the idea of “Your Husband Has a Cold” as a horror movie topic. It is the thing I dread most in this world…the minute mine gets sick he devolves into a sniveling snot-beast that whines and chainsaw-coughs relentlessly. He is convinced that using a ceiling fan will kill him during these sicktimes (a condition I refer to as Fanitis) and I lie awake at night, waiting for him to wheeze out his final breath of consciousness so I can get up and turn the damned fan on so I don’t have to breath his sick mouth-fumes.

I got a mother-in-law and father-in-law that live in the same town and like to do the ole pop-in once in a while. Fuckin’ christ, there goes most of my Saturday afternoon. For the first 4 years or so of being married, they had a real knack for knocking on the door when we’re doing it or just got done (didn’t realize for a long while that it was usually when they were heading home from church). Both cars are in the garage, we’d just lay there until they go away. There’s no fucking way either of us are going to jump up, quickly get dressed, straighten up a little, and answer the door with a story that we were downstairs moving furniture or some shit. Who do I have to fuck to get them to call first?

house centipedes everywhere.

Bill G. October 9, 2013 at 7:50 pm

I had that happen once on my shoulder. No joke, I went for a walk on a trail by my house. As I was coming in the front door, I felt something on my neck. Brushed it away (I thought) and felt it again as I was coming into the bathroom. Turned on the light and saw that I had a couple hundred little baby centipedes (about the size of an eyelash) all over my shoulder and neck. Those clothes all went into the washing machine, turned it on, and took a nice long shower. I did this at a pretty frantic pace and my wife was downstairs wondering why I was banging things around, saying fuck a lot, and moving fast. I don’t know where I picked up a nest of tiny centipedes, I must’ve brushed up against the wrong tree somewhere.

i would have just set myself on fire and accepted the end of my life. wow. such perseverance. that literally is a horror story and you are the hero.

I don’t go back to barbers that sit me in the chair and immediately spin me away from the mirror. They must have something to hide. I don’t trust them for shit.

No doubt, I fucking hate people knocking on my door. Window salesmen are such shysters, they don’t get more than a sentence out with me. For awhile, it got to the point where I just quit answering the door all together. My attitude is: I don’t care if you’re selling or giving away the greatest shit on earth, it’s nothing I want or I’d already have it, planning to get it, or be jealous that I can’t afford it. If I know the person: you fucked up by not calling first.
