E is for Edward, who birthday was today...

Feb 22 2009 Published by under Entertainment

Via The Greenbelt, I see that today was the birthday of macabre artist Edward Gorey (1925-2000), who produced such bizarre and twisted classics such as The Gashlycrumb Tinies and The Curious Sofa.  It is an interesting coincidence since I just referred to Gorey only a few days ago in relation to the upcoming horror game The Path.

To celebrate, The Greenbelt points us to a wonderful little short online quiz: What will be your Edward Gorey death, in which you can determine what sort of Gashlycrumb Tinies fate is most fitting for you!

I got Xerxes:


"You will be devoured by mice. You are so shy and always off alone in the corner. No one knows you are there except for the blood thirsty rodents."

Doesn't really seem to fit my personality, but who am I to argue with an online quiz?

P.S.  My apologies to Blake if this reopens old wounds...
