If Santa shows up on NORAD’s radar at Christmastime, what do they see around Halloween?
The answer of course is ghosts, witches, giant bats, the Grim Reaper, and ancient missing warplanes flying around the earth on eternal bombing missions. Why don’t we hear more about this stuff? Because what happens at the Cheyenne Mountain Halloween Party stays at Cheyenne Mountain Halloween Party. Incidentally, any mountain named “Cheyenne” definitely has some Indian graves underneath, which might help to explain the high levels of supernatural activity that occur there.
Certainly all that fancy pants equipment detects some interesting stuff. Based on countless TV shows and movies about ghosts, it doesn’t take much more than a old TV or a transistor radio to pull in communications from the Other Side. Heck, even an old board game from Parker Brothers will do the trick. Now imagine having the Hubble Telescope of spirit detection sitting at your fingertips. The place should be renamed to Witch Mountain.
AIR FORCE WINGS
In case you are wondering about the eagles, there is no great mystery there. Just as the Navy has attempted to utilize dolphins in the defense of our country (by blowing them up, the jerks), these birds work for the Air Force — killing fish, making horrible screeching noises, and symbolizing patriotism.
Just a few more days till Halloween! Do you have your Silver Shamrock mask ready? (there is a reference to that reference in this cartoon, BTW). There may be an extra cartoon next week if I find some extra time and work efficiently, otherwise, Happy Halloween and see you in November for another horror comedy comic from Grinsane!
