The tricky thing about decorating for Halloween is that the border between cool Edgar-Allan-Poe strange and, uh, rats-in-a-bag strange is almost invisible.

It's difficult to see the line until it's crossed in a big, casket-furniture kind of way. Take, for instance, these interacting skeleton singers. It's impossible to tell what's most appalling: the singing, the banjos, the $199 pricetag, or the fact that they're actually sold out. Do have a look at the freaky finds above.
