There is only one thing wrong with Santa Carla – the place is crawling with vampires. Oh, and some hideous 1980s fashion. But if you insist upon moving there, take heed and keep to yourself. Falling in with the Surf Nazi crowd will put you squarely on the vampire late supper menu. Mess with the vampires themselves and you’ll be drinking red “wine” from an antique flask and hallucinating that your noodles are actually worms.

It’s not easy being a superhero. Ask any of them, and they’ll all tell you the same thing. Being a vigilante is even worse. Believing you are acting for the greater good, but where’s the appreciation? Make a mistake, and you’re persecuted. There are certainly times when it may seem best to ditch the mask forever and get an office job.

Mayor Wilson wants to tear down the Clock Tower. Ya gotta be kidding me?! Lightning struck the tower in 1955 and it is a local treasure of the Valley, an icon of a time when certain people almost ceased to exist. So screw Mayor Wilson, grab a flyer (or a T-Shirt) and spread the word.

What’s worse than travelling into the future to a world where apes are masters and humans the caged animals? Having an injured throat and the inability to scream at those damned gorillas to get their stinkin’ paws off ya, that’s what! Oh, those maniac humans…they blew it up.

In a dystopian future, unsatisfied with the education system and craving a little adventure, what is a young, cold-blooded male gonna do? He’s gonna take to the streets with his buddies in a crazy-looking sports car, maybe stop by the local milk bar and, if the mood takes, perhaps invade a man’s home and attack his wife. Of course, such wild behaviour is bound to run foul of the authorities and lead to attempted rehabilitation with the help of some uncomfortable eye apparatus.

If there is a creature alive beneath the waters of Loch Ness, just what exactly could it be? Theories abound and hoaxes come and go, but the legend of Nessie lives on. Is she merely a crafty plesiosaur that somehow survived through the ages? Or she is just some kind of fish mutated by the effluent from the nearby haggis packing factory?

Broccoli rocks! Yeah, that’s right. It may have barely a trace of anything that could be considered taste, but it’s damn good for you. Whether it’s in a stir-fry, or smothered with peanut butter wrapped inside an apple Danish, broccoli will keep you lean and mean and ready to rock out with other vegetables.

The annual Amity Island Regatta was cancelled in the summer of 1975 due to an unusually large great white shark that had taken up residence in the area. It was the first time in the 53-year history of the Amity Island Sailing Club that the regatta was not staged. Angry club members stormed the Mayor’s office to demand that the decision be lifted, and a number of arrests were made for disorderly conduct. A small group of these disgruntled club members later went against the law and ran their own makeshift regatta at night. They were all eaten by the shark.

The Kraken. The legendary sea creature of Greek mythology – immortalised by Harryhausen in stop-motion in the 1980s. It is also the name given to the Giant Squid, the most elusive of all ocean species. Believed to grow up 60 feet in length, it has been the subject of many tales of misadventure on the high seas. Never has one been captured alive or even captured alive on film. Jacques Cousteau claimed to have seen one, but he was probably full of shit.

Don’t settle for a dodgy wig that’s gonna come off at the wrong time. Get yourself down to Queens and visit Morrie’s Wig Shop, right next door to the Suite Nite Club. This guy’s wigs are tested against hurricane winds (so important!) and are guaranteed to stay on your cranium (unless you’re being assaulted by a local wiseguy).

Abraham Hollingsworth was an author who suffered momentous writer’s block. In 1957, he penned the internationally acclaimed The Moral Decline Of African Mountain Apes and was hailed as a triumphant new literary voice. Ten years later, the world was still waiting for his follow-up novel and in 1970, Hollingsworth’s publisher finally decided to sack his under-performing butt. In 1987, the thirty-year mental-block was seemingly ended when Hollingsworth released his second novel, however it turned out to be an abridged version of his first novel. He has been in self-imposed exile ever since.
