Mystery package arrives from Universal Orlando – The stench lets us know Halloween Horror Nights is about to begin


We have come to expect something sinister at our doorstep when it’s close to Halloween time. We usually receive something a few weeks ahead of the start of Orlando’s Halloween events, but that wasn’t the case this year. Just when we thought we were safe to answer our door, the Fed-Ex man arrived today, just one day from the start of Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights.

The square box seemed innocent enough. It had just a burlap sack inside. All seemed normal until the stench hit us! Gross.

We pulled the sack out and set it on our desk. That’s when we noticed what looked like blood stains on the bottom part of the bag. Do you really want to know what’s inside? Be warned, it isn’t pretty … Scroll down if you dare.

Who is it? Who has been killed and had HHN 22 carved in their skull? The hair (sticky to the touch) looks red. Hmm, last year’s icon, Lady Luck, had red hair … Maybe her luck ran out.

We were at a preview of Halloween Horror Nights 22 last night and captured some of the many hordes roaming the streets (no where is safe):

Oh yeah. That’s just A+ journalism right there. Can’t even use the right form of “Horde/Hoard”.

“Roaming HORDE” is the correct form. Jesus Christ. You’d think after years of journalism in college and learning basic English all through elementary/middle/high school the writers would know better.

Thanks for letting me know about that Shelby. I’ve corrected it. In a hurry to get some stories posted we’re not as careful about proofreading as we should be sometimes.

Eeeeeek! Yeah you all have fun at those events, as much as I love my theme parks, I can not bring myself to be ok at one of those.

And no big on the typo we are all human aren’t we? 🙂
