Puns From The Crypt

Superkernel supporting characters and Mini-Me versions of some universally recognizable horror icons, C. C. Ghoul and the Gang eventually came out from under Superkernel's shadow and made it to the big time in their very own Weekly Reader Book Club activity book that was full of gags so awful that I'm sure even my seven-year-old self was groaning and puzzles so lame that they don't even rate scanning. And now I just have to start a new sentence because that last one was starting to get out of hand.

The preceding Franken-pun goes out to Mr. Rozum.

Up until I was scanning this page I had thought that this character's name was 'Lynx' which always confused me as to why they would give a wolfman character a feline name. Then I suddenly noticed that his name was actually 'Lynk' and now I'm confused as to whether or not he's a wolfman character or a missing link type Bigfoot character. If he's a wolfman why is he named 'Lynk' and if he's a Bigfoot character why is he barking. And why am I capitalizing the word 'Bigfoot?' It's not his name, it's what he is. I don't capitalize 'dog' or 'tree' or 'sandwich.' Unless it's a really good sandwich.

Thank you for that atrocious pun! I know just where I'm going to put it.
