Here’s a joke about Doctor Xombie’s good Fiends Scary Sid and Dawn of the Dead (from the “Friday Night Fright”):
-Deaf Fright Problem-
Scary Sid feared his ghoul-friend Dawn of the Dead wasn’t hearing as well as she used to and he thought she might need a hearing aid.
Not quite sure how to approach her, he called Doctor Xombie to discuss the problem.
Doctor Xombie told him there is a simple informal test that Sid could perform to give Doctor Xombie a better idea about her hearing loss.
‘Here’s what you do,’ said Doctor Xombie, ‘stand about 40 feet away from her, and in a normal conversational speaking tone see if she hears you. If not, go to 30 feet, then 20 feet, and so on until you get a response.’
That evening, Dawn is in the kitchen cooking dinner, and he was in the dungeon. Scary Sid says to himself, ‘I’m about 40 feet away, let’s see what happens.’Then in a normal tone he asks, ‘Snookums, what’s for dinner?’
So the Sid moves up the stairs and closer to the kitchen, about 30 feet from Dawn and repeats, ‘Dawn, what’s for dinner?’
Still no response.
Next he moves into the un-living room where he is about 20 feet from her and asks, ‘Sweetums, what’s for dinner?’
Again he gets no response.
So, he walks up to the kitchen door, about 10 feet away. ‘Dawn, what’s for dinner?’
Again there is no response.
So he walks right up behind her. ‘Dawn, what’s for dinner?’
‘For goodness sake, Sid, for the FIFTH time, BRAINS!’
