Morticia: Think of Romeo and Juliet.
Gomez: They died!
Morticia: Oh, but what fun they had those last three days

Some days ago Julia brought to class a wonderful book by Charles Addams. If you like comics and cartoons you would love his work.

Charles Samuel Addams was an American cartoonist known for his particularly black humor and macabre characters. His cartoons regularly appeared in The New Yorker and he drew more than 1,300 cartoons over the course of his life. However, he was best known for creating “The Addams Family” comic characters which have been adapted for a variety of media, including including television series, films, video games and a musical.

The Addamses are a satirical inversion of the ideal American family; an eccentric, wealthy clan who delight in the macabre and are unaware that people find them frightening 😀
