Creepy Conversation Starters
I had a Halloween party this past year and filled a pumpkin pail with folded pieces of paper and each one had a creepy question or conversation starter. For example...If you were a serial killer, what "trophies" would you take from your victimes? If you were a cannibal, what would be your favorite body part to eat? What's your favorite murder show on TV? What kind of ghost would you be? What competition would you choose if you had to challenge the Devil and win back your soul? Post your own creepy question for the challenge and answer other Prosers questions in their comments. I'll award the best question AND the best answer to a question.
