It's sad, when a mother has to speak the words that condemn her own son. But I couldn't allow them to believe that I would commit murder. They'll put him away now, as I should have years ago. He was always bad, and in the end he intended to tell them I killed those girls and that man... as if I could do anything but just sit and stare, like one of his stuffed birds. They know I can't move a finger, and I won't. I'll just sit here and be quiet, just in case they do... suspect me. They're probably watching me. Well, let them. Let them see what kind of a person I am. I'm not even going to swat that fly. I hope they are watching... they'll see. They'll see and they'll know, and they'll say, "Why, she wouldn't even harm a fly..."

Tenpole Tudor - Who Killed Bambi?

"Gentle pretty thing
Who only had one spring
You bravely faced the world
Ready for anything
I'm happy that you lived
And your life is mine
What have I except to cry
Spirit never die
Birds of the air
Beasts of the earth
Overjoyed at Bambi's birth they gambolled in the glade

Who killed Bambi?
Murder murder murder
Someone should be angry
The crime of the century
Who shot little Bambi
Never trust a hippi
I love punky Bambi
I'll kill to find the killer
In that rotten roll army
All the spikey punkers
Believers in the ruins
With one big shout
They all cry out
Who killed Bambi?"

*Puts the pumpkin on the compost heap. Picks up the candy wrappers that the kids left behind. Puts the face-paint stained bathroom towel in the washing machine. Mops up the brains that the zombies spilled.*

*Sighs. Then smiles.*

Halloween over. Time to get ready for CHRISTMAS!

Ho, ho, ho! With Hallowe'en over, you'll be turning your thoughts to Christmas! Of course, the little elves have been thinking about it all year, busy making preparations. But we still need a little assistance. Could you be Santa's little helper?

Do you know any good girls or boys that deserve special recognition? If you believe a nation or region you know has made a real difference to NationStates this year, please contact Little St Nick with the name and a few words of why they deserve to be on Santa's Nice List.

Be part of our countdown to Christmas! Send Little St Nick a link to a suitable picture, and we'll put it in our advent calendar. Like last year, each picture will also be flown as a flag above our region for a day.

Saving the most delicious ideas until last - New this year is our Christmas Cookbook. Whether you choose a traditional Christmas pudding, or new sprout dishes, we are interested in hearing your best recipes, and GoodKingWenceslas would like to hear them. So bring us some figgy pudding, and bring it right here.

We'll be bringing you more festive events as the big day gets closer. Merry Christmas!

Bob Rivers - Be Claus I Got High

"I was gonna trim the tree, until I got high

I was supposed to book my grandma's flight, but then I got high
She's sleepin' at LAX, and I know why
'Cause I got high
Because I got high
Because I got high

I was gonna send you a card, but I got high
Put a lighted reindeer in my yard, but I got high
My jack-o-lantern's frozen, its still outside
'Cause I get high
Because I get high
'Cause I get high

I was gonna clean the chimney flue, but then I got high
I was gonna roll up a fatty too for the fat guy
I drank his milk and cookies, and I know why
'Cause I got high
Because I got high
Because I got high

I was gonna go to midnight mass while I was high
I was gonna sit there and pass some gas while I was high
Now I'll burn in Hell, and I know why
'Cause I got high
Because I got high
Because I got high

I was gonna kiss my grandmas face, and then I got high
I was gonna eat her fruit cake too, then I got high
It tasted pretty nasty, but I don't mind
Because I was high
Because I was high
Because I was high

I'm messin with Christmas songs because I'm high
I hope Afroman don't take this wrong because he's high
If I get a call from his attorney, well I know why
