I was thinking about black eyed children, shadow people, zombies, and all kinds of other creepy and scary things that I could ask you about. Then my husband Teddy came home. He told me an interesting story about his day.
What My Husband Teddy Told Me, In His Words
A couple of men in black suits came by my office today. Yes, those kind of men in black suits. They showed me my own obituary and asked me if I knew anything about it.”
“Do I look dead?” I asked them.
They didn’t answer me. I picked up the photocopy of the obituary and looked closer. “1875? Gentlemen that would make me 170 years old. Do I look 170?”
“We have DNA,” one of them said.
“Everyone has DNA,” I said.
Then they pulled out some photos. So I pulled out some photos of the kids and told them it was family resemblance and nothing more. One of them mumbled something about how the family wouldn’t let them exhume my body.
That sounds weird just saying that.
I erased their short term memories and they came back three more times.
Then my Teddy gave me a dazzling smile. “It was fun.”
By the way, if you’re new here, we’re Vampires. OK now that I have that out of the way you can stop being totally confused.
We all (most of us) loved The X Files. We all love a good conspiracy theory (even thought most of them are insanely crazy.) We all loved the Men In Black Movies (at least the first one.) And then there is Coast to Coast started by Art Bell.
From Wikipedia: In popular culture and UFO conspiracy theories, men in black (MIB) are supposed men dressed in black suits who claim to be quasi-government agents who harass or threaten UFO witnesses to keep them quiet about what they have seen. It is sometimes implied that they may be aliens themselves. The term is also frequently used to describe mysterious men working for unknown organizations, as well as various branches of government allegedly designed to protect secrets or perform other strange activities. The term is generic, used for any unusual, threatening or strangely behaved individual whose appearance on the scene can be linked in some fashion with a UFO sighting. Several alleged encounters with the men in black have been reported by UFO researchers and enthusiasts.
Do you believe in Men in Black?
Answer the poll. Nobody will know your answers and none of your information will be shared with the government.
Make any comments you have about the poll, Halloween, cats, your weekend plans, parenting, men’s fashion, your alien experiences, frogs, talking dogs, or anything you want below. Please DO leave comments.
See you next Saturday with another Burning Question. And if you start smoking I’ll tell your mom.

I once got a visit from the Men in Black, but I didn’t recognize them. Turns out it was Casual Friday…
My friends call them secret squirrels as a code word so we don’t sound like conspiracy quacks when we whisper about them.
Good idea. Nobody ever suspects squirrels.
Well, no one suspects secret squirrels. Everyone suspects Evil Squirrels 😉
