Z is for Zillah - That's Good Enough For Me

Halloween is fast approaching, and although I don't really participate in the holiday anymore (it's just too much effort to constantly be walking up and down three flights of stairs just to dole out candy to youngsters who on any other evening I would rather muzzle. Plus, in my neighborhood, they're just as likely to show up dressed as a "gangsta" with a loaded weapon as a prop) I still feel like getting into the spirit of things with some Halloween themed posts.

Today I'm passing along the link to this little gem of a quiz I found that will tell you 'What horrible Edward Gorey death you will die.' Edward Gorey is, of course, the wonderfully macabre (and now dead) author/illustrator whose book, The Gashlycrumb Tinies, I have on full display in my apartment, and have mentioned several times on this blog. In fact, they seem to have ripped the quiz results straight from the book itself. Needless to say, I am beyond thrilled with my own result (see below.)

So... how will you die? Let us know in the comments, if you dare.

What horrible Edward Gorey Death will you die?

You will drink too much gin. Not the worst way to die, but you won't remember too much of your life. Hey, at least you made some people laugh!
Take this quiz!

Q is for Quentin who sank in a mire. Mires are fine, but gin is quicker...

No leeches in far as I know. Whew.

G is for George smothered under a rug...

Call me crazy, but doesn't that sound kind of comfortable? And I don't think it would kill me.

This part was nasty: "You will be smothered under a rug. You're a little anti-social, and may want to start gaining new social skills by making prank phone calls."

We have two people killed by leeches, which I'd imagine is perhaps the least enjoyable way to go, one who sank in a mire - while chasing a butterfly, no less, and another who was smothered under a rug. I''d still take the gin.

Andrew, it would depend on the type of rug it was. Were it an tightly knit area rug or low pile carpet, I'd imagine it would be pretty uncomfortable. As for your anti-social behavior, well... nevermind.
