Joe Cracks Up


After battling snakes, Joe decides to freshen up. But when he confronts his own grim visage in the mirror, he experiences an existential crisis.

  1. Poor Joe, one gets the feeling that the same happens every day.

    But hey, at least he doesn't have to worry about shaving.

  3. oh no...the angst...the pain of self-discovery...if Nightmare Before Christmas is any indication, all skeletons go through some period of inner turmoil and unrest before reconciling their bony self...hope Joe follow suit :)

  4. "Oh somewhere deep inside of these bones
    An emptyness began to grow
    There's something out there far from my home
    A longing that I've ne-ver known

    I'm the master of fright and a demon of light
    And I'll scare you right out of your pants
    To a guy in Kentucky, I'm Mister Unlucky
    And I'm known throughout England and France
    And since I am dead, I can take off my head
    To recite Shakesperean quotations

    No animal nor man can SCREAM like I can
    With the fury of my re-ci-ta-tions
    But who here would ever understand
    That the Pumpkin King with the skeleton grin
    Would tire of his crown, If they only understood
    He'd give it all up, if he only could....

    Oh theres an empty place in my bones
    That calls out for something unknown
    The fame and praise come year after year
    Does nothing for these e-mpty tears...."
