    on my couches, the faint crackle and rustle sounds are a dead give-away, yes, there is plastic between their butt and the actual cushion!
    He interupted me to say this numerous times:"This stuff doesn't bother me! I'm not afraid of this stuff! This stuff doesn't bother me!"
    "Well, OK....."
    After his group left I found that he left me a urine sample, right where he wasn't bothered!
    Unrequested urine samples do bother me.

    I figured out what was missing. Literally bolt the door. Whip out the air wrenches and it makes the sound of going through some torque sequence in addition to all the regular rattles and pinnings. Lovely assistants bring and take away the soccets and air wrench and various locks on silver platers. It's magic.

    For occasional couch wetness, the noo noo from the teletubbies comes out and searches for things to clean up. Only it is scarier looking.


    Another fabulous post from the U.S.Department of Wild Imaginings, now in spectaclar stereo, sponsored by the Adhesives and Sealants Council, suggesting ways to stick things together since the 1800s. Not fabulous in a gay way. Your results may vary. Illinois residents add 8% sales tax. These posts have been made by professional post makers, do not try this type of posting on your own without extensive training, lovely assistants and a trusty clown horn.

    Jim I knew that would ruffle your feathers! LOL! Thats why I said it. You could always buy a breathalizer and have them blow in it. If it goes off all you have to say is for your safety and yours you can not enter this establishment.

    Last year we actually tried to outsmart our common sense. We actually had the brewery down the road in our ad! We already had a problem with drunks before. So telling people about the brewery was just insane! We figured we would have more drunks than ever.

    Did not notice any more drunks! The brew pub was not "cheap beer" to get hammered on. We had their full menu posted at our ticket line as well. Twisted turkey sandwich, pizza, wings and more.

    This year one of our ads has 'Whats better than a haunt with a brewery one mile away" right in upper right corner of ad. with bottles of Screamin pumpkin spiced ale and Kid Rock's BAD ASS BEER...both brewed 1 mile away.

    I must be insane!

    Some of the big corp. haunts make their biggest profits from selling $7 shots to their haunt customers. Unfortunately, they get vomit and piss on the walls, and fists in the faces of their actors. It's such big business though, they keep at it. They also spend a lot on security, and need it. Of course, they also run everyone through in a continuous line (again, to increase the bottom line). But both practices detract from the overall experience. The other customers will enjoy it more without the drunks, and they will be more scared if they don't have a continuous line to telegraph were all the scares are. Oh well, to each their own.

    I was never able to figure out how others do a good haunt with a congo line. Oh wait...they don't.
