An Irony on Elm Street.

I was in a bit of a Halloween spirit today so I went to the store and got myself some Nightmare on Elm Street shot glasses. Prominently featured on the front of the glasses is the unmistakable face of Freddy Kreuger.


After I got home to enjoy my purchase, I noticed something interesting on the back of the packaging.


Let me get this straight. I’m supposed to keep some shot glasses bearing the likeness of Freddy Krueger away from fire, the very substance that transformed Freddy into the lovable movie monster he is. If he got that nasty the first time he got torched, who knows how much worse it’s going to be the second time around.
