      These are three great limericks by Edward Gorey:

      A timid young lady named Jane
      found parties a terrible strain;
      with movements uncertain
      she’d hide in a curtain
      and make sounds like a rabbit in pain.

      A gentleman, otherwise meek,
      Detested with passion the leek;
      When offered one out
      He dealt such a clout
      To the maid, she was down for a week.

      A lady born under a curse
      Used to drive forth each day in a hearse;
      From the back she would wail
      Through a thickness of veil:
      “Things do not get better, but worse.”

    Does Anyone Think Dumb Ways To Die Is Annoying? Dumb ways to die is a song on youtube. People say its the best song ever, but in my opinion its very annoying and it looks and sounds childish. The video has like more than 200,000 likes and about 6,000 dislikes. Does anyone else think the video is annoying?

  • What Are Some Good Twisted, Demented, Macabre Books? I want to read a book that will make me sick, something involving death or serial killers, fiction or non fiction is fine. I love Tim Burton, Harmony Korine, Edward Gorey, there work is lovely, So something like that if you could give me a list of a few that would be great!

      Suffer the Children by John Saul is pretty twisted, or The Nameless by Ramsey Campbell, Pet Sematary by Stephen King, happy reading 🙂
