Mr. S. read this to me this morning and I thought it was hilarious.

Supposedly from HP Lovecraft's brief stint as a copywriter for Whitman's Samplers...

Having read that, the reason his stint as a copywriter was brief becomes evident. Grin

Caramel Chew

There is a dimension ruled by a blind caramel God-King who sits on a vast, cyclopean milk-chocolate throne while his mindless, gooey followers dance to the piping of crazed flutes. It is said that there are gateways in our world that lead to this caramel hell-planet. The delectable Caramel Chew may be one such portal.

That's awesome. I really like good parodies of Lovecraft's writing, as much as I'm a fan of his actual stuff.

Haha, thank you! After reading the article I was hoping someone would make that joke...Is it just me or does some of that stuff actually sound kind of delicious? And empowering, good candy to munch atop the throne of a solid empire...

Are those chocolates the latest product of the Whizzo Chocolate Company ? From the moment I read this I cannot stop thinking about Lovecraftian version of the "Crunchy Frog" sketch . "R'lyeh Surprise" anyone ?

BTW. Have you heard about the "Shoggoth on the Roof" musical ?  Here is a small sample :

I thought of the "crunchy frog" myself. I came up with "bony ghoul" and "Shoggoth Jelly indulgence"

Speaking of Lovecraft and humour, I recently downloaded an album's worth of Lovecraftian Christmas carols. I am not making this up. I'll see if I can upload them.

Features such classics as:
 Freddie the Red-Brained Migo
 Away in a Madhouse
 Demon Sultan Azathoth
 Mythos of a King
