There are those who claim that some cryptids are the result of science gone awry - covert experiments and horrible accidents brought about by devious seekers of arcane knowledge - knowledge hitherto forbidden by Providence. So be warned as we relate the terrifying tale of the horror that recently befell the city of Springfield on March 17th, 2012.
Amongst the many local dignitaries participating in Springfield's St. Patrick's Day parade this year was the celebrated ghoul and bon vivant Uncle Gregory, host of "The New Uncle Gregory Horror Hour". Although many in the crowd must have been well aware of his macabre style and tastes, one can only imagine the wave of terror that swept across the crowd when they saw that his tiny float was being drawn by... GIANT MUTANT IRISH POTATOES!!!
Where did they come from? Where are they now? Was Uncle Gregory somehow responsible for the creation of these abominations? You will have to wait for a future episode of "The New Uncle Gregory Horror Hour" to find out... if you dare!
Tune in to "The New Uncle Gregory Horror Hour" on Mediacom channel 85 every week at 9:30 Thursday evening, or check out his website and watch his videos at:
