Happy Stopfordian Hallowe'en for Abdul!

Post by asthmatic camel » Sun Oct 28, 2018 6:13 pm

This has been a "scream". :)

Hosted at the country park where I volunteer, against our wishes and half a mile from the roughest council estate in town, a load of go-karts and a bouncy castle were stolen before the event even started. On the opening day, even the witch was apologising. :D

Screamania.

Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

I believe she's a wannabe actress who'll do anything to earn a crust. Half the "actors and actresses" hired failed to turn up.

:D

Putin's Voice wrote:‘Halloween draws children to Satan & suicide,’ must be banned in Russian schools – pro-Christian MP

Controversial pro-Christian MP, Vitaly Milonov, has urges Education Minister, Olga Vasilyeva, to forbid celebrations of “pagan Satan-worshiping holiday” Halloween in Russian schools and severely punish those, who violate the ban.

In his address, Milonov said had been receiving numerous complaints from parents, who are “alarmed” by plans to stage Halloween celebrations at schools and colleges where their kids study.

“Many schoolchildren are being persuaded to participate in this shady holiday. They are being forced to make costumes of imps, decorate classrooms with otherworldly attributes and prepare thematic plays.”
[…]
The MP asked the minister to “take all possible measures to prevent Halloween celebrations at schools” in Russia. But if the violations still occur, he urged “the toughest disciplinary measures to be implemented against those officials, who indulge the insight of mystical Satanism into the minds of our children.”

Furthermore, it's non-Russian, unlike Islam. :)

EEK!

The one on the right looks frighteningly like a former girlfriend, (although she was Polish rather than Russian.)

A formidable woman...
