I find it interesting that every Halloween this video gets played over and over; principally because it features zombies and Michael Jackson in a costume.
But what I find ironic about this video, is that Michael Jackson looks scarier now than he did in the video.
I’m not sure when or why he took leave of his senses, but I blame Bush and Cheney.

Last night while the middle-cat was cooking dinner, first one, then the second carbon-monoxide detector in our house went off. (One is very loud...two is deafening). The Big-Cat had to unplug both detectors and remove their batteries to make them stop....then big-cats opened a bunch of windows.
The big-cats weren’t sure what to do next, so they asked the Internet; which suggested they call the fire department....so a couple minutes later, a big fire engine pulled up in front of our house and three firemen came in the front door (I have drawn a picture of what the fire truck looked like from my perch under the bed).
The firemen were wearing their regular, lounging around the fire hall clothes (not the big raincoats and masks). They said that dinner smelled really good (too bad they didn’t bring garlic bread) and that they don’t often get to go on calls where they get to take their boots off.
The Captain (or Cap, as the other guys called him) wandered around with a carbon-monoxide gauge. He tested the furnace and the areas around the house and didn’t find any abnormal readings.
They told the big-cats to call them again if there were any problems and they’d come back (with garlic toast?)
We’re sill not sure what caused both carbon-monoxide detectors to go off; but everything is a-ok right now.

The banking crisis is ruining everything...the economy is in the toilet, the value of my RRSPs is falling quicker than Palin's popularity, and now this...the price of a can of Fancy Feast has increased by almost 15% in the last week (especially the ones without Melamine).
My big-cats came home from the store with the shocking news that a tin of Fancy Feast now costs 89-cents and that due to the price increase, I would have to cut down on my consumption of them.
Will someone please fix this financial fiasco that we are all in?
I hate investment bankers.
