    EIGHT THINGS NOT TO DO OR SAY WHEN A MAD SCIENTIST
MOVES INTO YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD

    "I'm right next door. Just holler if you need anything."

    Let your cat out.

    "Why are your glasses so thick?"

    Go through his garbage looking for body parts.

    "Exactly what is it that you do for a living?"

    Teach your children that the world is made up
    of many different kinds of people and we all
    have to learn to be tolerant and love one another.

    "Did you hear that bloodcurdling scream last night?"

    Invite him to a potluck.
