Cthulhu’s In My Bathtub!

Oh, no!  H.P. Lovecraft’s slimy octopus-dragon-overlord has escaped from the undersea dungeon of R’lyeh, crawled through the sewers, and manifested himself in your tub!  What do you do?  Kill it?  Worship it?  Feed it your rose-scented soap-on-a-rope?

One thing’s for sure, Cthulhu is more versatile than 10,000 rubber duckies!

3. Conference call 9-1-1, Animal Control, the CDC, and a plumber.

4. Lull Cthulhu to sleep by reading to him from the Necronomicon.


Dude, did you see the centerfold?

5. Charge admission to your bathroom.  “Five bucks to see The Great Old One.  Ten bucks to pet Cthulhu while you’re on the crapper.”

6. Find out once and for all if Cthulhu was the monster in Cloverfield.


I’ll never tell, tee hee hee.

13. Very nicely ask Cthulhu if he can unstop your sluggish drain with his telepathic power.

14. Invite your nerdier friends over to play the RPG Call of Cthulhu.  There’s no way you’ll lose this time!

20. Commence your plans for world domination — One bathtub at a time.
