It's that season again,
Krampus' will be descending upon the wicked and selfish, . . .
Sam likes to sneak up on his victims and cover their eyes. He is only 3 feet tall, so he carries a folding stepladder with him. Once he has his hands over the person's eyes he whispers in a very convincing woman's voice, when they turn around, they usually are frightened into unconsciousness.
At which time, he cross-dresses his victims, . . . affixing crooked wigs to their heads and miss-matched high heels to their feet (usually 2 left feet), and places them in uncomfortable locations where they might be seen by the most people, like train stations or bus terminals.
painting will be on display at Art Basel

This is Maxo The Ultra-Chimp
I've been asked list 5 random facts about myself
1. I love to cook, and not just Chinese food
2. When I worked at an art supply store in NY, my name tag said "O'Malley"
because I got tired of people asking me what country I came from.(I look about as Irish as Charlie Chan)
3. I thought my kindergarten teacher looked like Richard Nixon in drag
4. I'm really into fine writing instruments.
5. I don't like circus clowns

Jack Longfellow was destined for something big, . . .or so he thought. He really didn't want to be a collector of souls(like his father), . . . instead, he wanted to be a pirate and sail the seas with reckless abandon. When he grew up, he settled for assignment as a Naval recruiting officer during the Civil War(it was a great place for him to harvest souls, the young recruits usually had no idea what kinds of documents they were signing). Sometime at the turn of the 20th century, intense boredom forced him to acquire a post at the US Patent office. He took great pleasure in giving patents to products and inventions that were prone to causing fatalities.
He now lives in Westfield, New Jersey, spending most of his time causing "road-rage"

"Monty's Day Of The Dead"
Every year, Monty begrudgingly pulls himself out of the ground to dance with the "Day of the Dead" revelers and charm the ladies, . . . it makes him anxious and he is happy that no one can see him sweat.
