Larry the Bathroom Ghost

So I work at a grocery store part time and our bathrooms are back in the employee break room. A lot of people get really intimidated coming into the back of the store where all the freight is kept, especially kids because its an environment NOBODY is generally used too. I was pretty intimidated my first day. So a kid about 11 years old comes to the back and he asks timidly "Where are the bathrooms?" (Which I swear, I answer that question at least 8 times a day, I am not kidding)

So anyway he asks "Where are the bathrooms?" Now I promise you... I don't know what compelled me to look at this kid, point in the direction of the break room, and say "Well they're over there but, they're haunted..." I KNOW! It just rolled off my tongue as lazy as possible. The look on this kid's face... PRICELESS! My friend Heidi was standing by and almost killed over from the laughter.

Heidi asks, "Zach, what kind of ghost is he?" and I said, "His name is Larry and he is the ghost of Christmas indigestion!"

Above is what I TRULY imagine Larry looks like. I genuinely like the way he is just a terrifying zombie head that materializes from the toilet bowl.

Below is another idea that I had for his design. Heidi likes this one best. I want to do one of Larry as just a big jolly skeleton guy hangin' in the bathroom.

I would also like to add that NOBODY thinks this is totally hilarious except for me, Heidi, my twin brother Ryan, and my girlfriend Carolyn.

I wanted it to be good so badly...

I always do this man... ALWAYS. I get super excited for a movie and invite like a billion people to come see it with me and then it sucks. The same thing happened last year with Super 8. You know its funny cause like at face value Prometheus had some REALLY cool stuff in it. Visually it was stunning but I think that there was a lost plot in the movie and it was a fight between a stand alone picture from the alien franchise and a direct prequel to the original Alien film. Oh well... had some cool stuff but overall I walked out pretty bummed.

I still love Ridley Scott and all but man...

Oh! Why did the star maps found on cave walls lead to a weapon testing facility?
