Freezer Burn Unit



First the mope with lycanthropy thaws
Then the dope with the cognitive flaws
And this popsicle pair
Squeeze the drops from their hair
In the hope they're still box office draws.

Daniel the hunchback (J. Carrol Naish) builds a fire to thaw the frozen Wolf Man (Lon Chaney Jr) and Monster (Glenn Strange) in House of Frankenstein (Erle C. Kenton, 1944).

I like the poem, but it seems like the photo is one of those "this escalated quickly" things.

Hey, Joe. Not sure what you mean, exactly.

Too much kindling?

Caffeinated Joe said...

Was just a joke. Like the fire could very easily just get way out of hand and then you have two burning monsters on your hands. :)

I know, Joe, and that sounds like a much funnier movie. But the monsters usually don't catch fire until the final scene.

The fire soon grew out of hand
Growing higher than Daniel had planned
The creatures were toasted,
Then each oven-roasted,
Expiring Coppertone tanned.
