An homage to Michael Jackson's Thriller

"The foulest stench is in the air
The funk of forty thousand years
And grizzly ghouls from every tomb
Are closing in to seal your doom

And though you fight to stay alive
Your body starts to shiver
For no mere mortal can resist
The evil of the thriller"

Very excited. A PB by a mile and my first ribbon to boot. Makes covering my arm in mud and running behind the the tombstone a dozen times (10 sec timer) all worth it. Thanks all.
