Bump Bump Bump Bump, behind him. Walking faster he looks back, and makes out the image of an upright coffin banging its way down the middle of the street towards him, bump, bump, bump.
Terrified, the man begins to run towards home, the coffin bouncing faster, faster, faster, faster. Bump, bump, bump .
He runs up to his door, fumbles with his keys, opens the door, rushes in, slams and locks the door behind him .
However, the coffin crashes through his door with the lid of the coffin clapping , clappity-bump, clappity-bump, clappity-bump, on the heels of the terrified man.
Rushing upstairs to the bathroom the man locks himself in. His heart is pounding, his head is reeling, his breath is coming in sobbing gasps.
With a loud CRASH the coffin breaks down the door, bumping and clapping towards him .
The man screams and reaches for something, anything, but all he can find is a bottle of cough syrup . Desperate he throws the cough syrup at the coffin. The coffin stops.

Gawwwwd, I am sooooo pathetic I had to read that twice before I got it. d(
big hugs xoxo
And I figured I'd get a huge 'groan' from you. 🙂
oooh spooky. I'm going to check the medicine cabinet for cough syrup. I think I'll want to carry a bottle around with me today. Or better yet maybe a gun that shoots cough drops?
I thought it was corny, but it's Halloween. 🙂
lol I get it. 😉 Sending the link to friend in e-mail. That's good stuff. 🙂 Happy Halloween!
It's kind of a cute joke for Halloween. 🙂
LMAO oh! the tension haha!
Have a cofftastic day g-)
It was pretty tense wasn't it. 🙂
A Halloween-themed joke. Love it! Interesting story–I was writing a story for a client of mine and had to contact different funeral homes to ask if anyone ever bought coffins for Halloween. The answer was…uh…NO. (Said with a weird, "Why would anyone do that?" question in their voices!) Indeed, you can buy fake, cheap costumes for decorating, but my client thought some people might be REALLY committed to their decorations!
I'll bet someone has done just this very thing. How spooky. 🙂
Halloween deserves a good groan!
I thought this was a huge groan. 🙂
Well, I read it twice but I still don't get it. LOL Fun to read though.
Coughing, instead of coffin, might help you understand this one. 🙂
Tap Tap Tap
Two men were walking home after a Halloween party and decided to take a shortcut through the cemetery just for laughs. Right in the middle of the cemetery they were startled by a tap-tap -tapping noise coming from the misty shadows. Trembling with fear, they found an old man with a hammer and chisel, chipping away at one of the headstones. "Holy cow, Mister," one of them said after catching his breath, "You scared us half to death — we thought you were a ghost! What are you doing working here so late at night?" "Those fools!" the old man grumbled. "They misspelled my name!"
Happy Halloween Saturday Sandee. Boo.
Love this Paul. It's better than mine. 🙂
Paul did very well didn't he. 🙂
Heeheehee! To your joke and Paul's!
Yep, Paul's is way better than mine. 🙂
Hey, Paul..we got a twofer today! Hahahahaha
Happy Halloween. Big hugs, honey…
Yes we did honey. 🙂
Hahahaha!! Oh this is a good one I am going to have to share this with my family! Happy Halloween to you😀
Share away. It's corny, but I thought it was cute. 🙂
I am so glad and relieved we do not celebrate Halloween over here! Or else I have to buy a few bottles of cough syrup!
You'll not need the cough syrup. 🙂
bwa hahahah Happy Halloween!
Happy Halloween to you too Kathe. 🙂
Robitussin can beat death? I'm in.
Me too. 🙂
LOL Sandee! I never use cough syrup, I make my own with ginger, lemon and honey. 🙂 Happy Halloween to you.
My mother did something similar. I'm guessing it works just as good and perhaps better. 🙂
Oh, you had me…b-( Great plays on words…laughing..Happy Halloween!
I loved the play on words too. 🙂
I posted the wrong Emoticon. Gosh, this one looks mad…laughing..I'm going to try it again,
It's easy to do. I do it all the time. 🙂
Alright, one more time…b-( If this doesn't do it, it's supposed to be the HELP, Emoticon.
I think it's the same one, but whatever. 🙂
I thought it was really funny but Michelle gave the punchline the "Groan" of the week award Sandee 😛
It is a groan joke. A huge groan joke. 🙂
LOL – Funny play on words. and yes, a big groan.
It was a big groan indeed, but so Halloween. 🙂
Good thing I read this after Halloween or I would've been carrying a bottle of cough syrup. I mean you never know when a coffin will come a bumping 😉
I thought it was a groaner, but it did make me laugh. 🙂
They should teach that in vampire hunter's school.
Good plan Binky, good plan. 🙂
