Tinned Fear & A Bottle of Beer



"Welcome to Monster Supplies" chirped the bright eyed lady behind the till of this peculiar shop.

"Welcome to Monster Supplies. The place where you can buy tinned fear straight off the shelf! Why not start with a "Vague Sense of Unease" before you eventually progress to the distressful trepidation of "Mortal Terror"


By this point dear readers, I was sucked right into the magic of the place and paced up and down the shelves whilst in deep scrutiny of which strain of fear would best suit my constitution.


I grimaced at the highly recommended jars of 100% human organs (organic I suppose?).


And I was charmed by the rather informative notice board.

Finally


I settled upon a jar of The Heebie Jeebies!

Yes this is precisely the kind of twinge that manifests within my bones the most.

  14. Heebie Jeebies is my all time favourite word from the English language and as such, I must have the tinned version.

    Where do you find all these brilliant places? I bet I've been walking around with my eyes closed half the time..
