Fibbing Friday 15th October: my response

Frank posed these questions earlier, so here are my silly answers.

  1. Exactly what did Columbus do in 1492?
    He opened a bottle of wine to celebrate the beginning of the New Year.
  2. Why does Canada celebrate Thanksgiving in October rather than November as the US does?
    C comes before U in the alphabet. Makes perfect sense to me.
  3. Why do we carve pumpkins into Jack-o-lanterns for Halloween?
    It doesn’t work with melons or tomatoes.
  4. If “octo-” means eight, then why is October the tenth month?
    Blame it on the Caesars’ accountant who couldn’t count.
  5. Why do kids dress up in costumes and go trick-or-treating on Halloween?
    Anonymity so that their parents don’t know how much candy they’re getting.
  6. What is the movie, Hocus Pocus about?
    Illegal sales of moonshine.
  7. In the Movie, Halloween, why was Michael Myers sent to an insane asylum when he was only six years old?
    There was no naughty step then.
  8. Continuing from the previous question, what did Myers do when he escaped approximately fifteen years later?
    He went into show business and made a series of movies.
  9. What was the movie, Lost Boys about?
    It was a typo and actually about sailing buoys being stolen by dolphins to play with.
  10. According to legend, why don’t vampires have a reflection?
    Some of them were so ugly, they didn’t want to break a mirror and risk seven centuries of bad luck.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I got to #4 and then lost it by the time I got to #8! I’m still chuckling! Thanks for the laughs!

  3. Oh too funny! And yeah, it is logical that “C” comes before “U” in the alphabet, so they ought to be first. 😉
