Need a generic scary thing? Here ya go ~

So yes, it's true ~ in America you can pretty much buy anything in a "drug store" ~ even a scary thing to hang somewhere around your house to celebrate Halloween. But what particularly struck me about THIS scary thing is its selling label. It is marked "48" Hanging Creature." Has our collective retail vocabulary shrunk so much that we don't use words like "ghoul," "goblin," "skeleton," "corpse," "cadaver," or even "monster" any more? This creepy spectre with its ghastly grin has been reduced to just a... Hanging Creature. Boo.
