They’re back...America’s scariest family. No, we don’t mean the Kennedys; we’re talking real weirdos. Okay, we’ll give you a hint: The only plots on their shows were cemetery plots. Need another clue? Bah dah da da-bump snap snap! Yeah, they’ve returned to our TV screens in glorious black and white reruns...

MADAM

ADVICE ‘TO MONSTERS

COUNSEL YOU CAN'T GET ELSEWHERE, FROM A FRIGHT SISTER.

Madame Fatal, Your Ladyship, I’m a very soft-spoken, solid citi- zen, law-abiding monster. But ever since grammar school, I’ve been afraid of being buried alive! We had this teacher in Third Grade, Miss Medusa, a real beast; with snakes in her hair and all! For pun- ishment, she would put us in a coffin and close the lid! Once, she left me in there through a whole Rest Period! How can I prevent my greatest fear—being buried alive?!

Aramis Spindelgosh Hemp, New Hampshire

Madame Fatal: Not to worry! There’s a firm in Velocity, Geor- gia, that manufactures the Ejec- tion Couch Coffin. A large explosive charge is situated just below the “departed”. Should the subject be alive, there is a switch primed for delayed deto- nation. Taking mourners and graveside diggers into consid- eration, of course. The charge has a shelf life of only TWO WEEKS. The erroneously in- terred has full grasp of the di- lemma in less than a week. You may see this wonderful labor- saving device in the current THE SHARPEST IMAGE catalogue.

Dear Madame Fatal,

We lost a good freak this week, Humpy Humperdinck, the 38

Hunchback of Sausalito. He wasn’t one of them bell-tower Hunchies; he had great respect for marine life and went around rub- bing sunscreen on beached whales. We wanna give him a burial at sea, that is, in the Bay. How can we make it into a first class event, for old Humpy?

Friends of Humpy

San Francisco, Ca.

Madame Fatal: Roll him up in a sheet of canvas, in the shape of a humpback whale. Then, get yourselves a bunch of easy-flow markers, waterproof, and write

bright sayings on the canvas shroud. You know, like, ‘It doesn’t get any better than this!”, and, “Beam me up, Nep- tune!” Then, ease him off the Golden Gate Bridge.

Dear Madame Fatal, Our family’s been in the grave- robbing business for four gen- erations. We sell cadavers to unscrupulous medical schools. It’s become much more risky since great-great-grandfather estab- lished the business. You know, dealing with the punks who made a sacrilege of our anointed enter- prise, as they make a ruckus top- pling headstones. Besides, with all the gang wars there’s an overabun- dance of stiffs.
