Yesterday we posted another week's answer for LiveJournal's Daily Quiz, which featured a Halloween theme:

1. Twas the night before Halloween, and all through the land, not a creature was stirring, except the millions of panicked radio listeners who believed that America was being invaded by Martians in 1938. Who narrated this famous deception, and what book had he adapted for that broadcast?

"I might well be monitoring these transmissions *from* Mars for all I know about '30's culture." - marcyleecorgan

"It should have been narrated by James Earl Jones. Just because everything should be narrated by James Earl Jones. The man could narrate an ad for llama pellets and I'd want to buy it. If there's a movie about my life, I want James Earl Jones to narrate it. Actually, I want him to narrate my life, period. Wouldn't that be cool?" - portkey

(I think that could get old:

James Earl Jones voiceover: THE MORNING BEGAN LIKE MOST OTHER MORNINGS FOR portkey, WITH A BOWL OF CHEERIOS, A GLASS OF ORANGE JUICE, AND A CENTRUM MULTIVITAMIN. AFTER BREAKFAST, portkey GOT DRESSED, CHOOSING FOR TODAY'S ATTIRE ... HEY, IS ANYONE ELSE GETTING BORED WITH THIS YET?

Everyone: zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz ...

-AL)

"In a related story, I eavesdropped on a number of conversations as I walked out of the movie theater after seeing "The Blair Witch Project," and a large number of people firmly believed that it was a real documentary. The conclusion? 1938 + 66 years = people are still stupid." - b7cy

(Administrations come & admininstrations go, but stupidity is forever. -AL)
