We're Having a Party!

Event: A Halloween Party!

From: The Donners

Location: Donner Pass

When: Late October Until the Spring Thaw!

Come one! Come all! To one of our famous parties. Everyone is invited. Bring provisions! Bring some oxen! Bring a friend!

There will be fun games like Drawing of Straws, a carving contest, and Bobbing for Ankles! Prizes for the best leg of lamb costumes will be awarded. (Feel free to salt yourself or soak in a marinade for a few days for accuracy!)

Directions: To get to the party, take a left at Independence, Missouri. Get caught in a snowstorm after six months of westward travel. Follow the trail to the Donner Lake Shore. We'll be there eagerly waiting for your arrival. With forks.

(**Special thanks to B, who sent me an actual Halloween party invite from some real Donners, which made me laugh in a very inappropriate manner. Thanks, B! Your gift for being so twisted is embedded below.)

Disclaimer: I, in no way, condone the use of animals as musical instruments.

I went to a Donner party to reminisce with my old friends
A chance to share old memories and play our songs again
When I got to the Donner party, they all knew my name
Smothered me in carrots and onions, and ate me just the same

But it's all right now, I learned my lesson well.
You see, ya can't please everyone, so ya got to please yourself

@JPC: You win comment of this thread. And not just because it's the only comment on this thread.

Ohhh! I'll come to the party. I'll even bring something to nibble on. I hope everyone likes ribs.

@Dingo: Yum!
