Dis­pen­sary Cor­ner

WHAT’S scarier than be­ing ac­costed by a blood­suck­ing vam­pire on Hal­loween? How about a trip to hospi­tal and be­ing told some fake chop­pers may need to be re­moved with a saw?

Yep, we’d go with the men­ac­ing un­dead op­tion too, how­ever a woman from Alabama lamentably didn’t get the lux­ury of mul­ti­ple choice this week.

Anna Tew was ini­tially chuffed when she fin­ished off her zom­bie cos­tume with a cheap pair of re­al­is­tic look­ing fake vam­pire fangs, but when she couldn’t prise them from her mouth by 2am the next morn­ing she nat­u­rally grew slightly con­cerned.

“I even took a pair of wire clip­pers and cut the tips of them off,” she said.

The bloody fangs were even­tu­ally re­moved by a den­tist through hours of ex­cru­ci­at­ing “pick­ing and pulling”.

There wasn’t any­thing left to do other than grin and bear it.

A STU­DENT in the USA has dis­played a lit­tle more than the usual teenage at­ti­tude by bak­ing her grand­fa­ther’s ashes into bis­cuits to share with class­mates.

The creepy in­ci­dent took place at a school in Sacra­mento, Cal­i­for­nia, with nine pupils sam­pling the some­what sandy cook­ies.

Of­fi­cials said they were at a loss to iden­tify a mo­tive, and would let the school han­dle the is­sue.
