Blog Guy, please help settle a bet with my step-mother’s tattooist.

Could Count Dracula still be alive today?

No. These days, when there are countless cameras everywhere, somebody would have spotted  him.

You can’t hide that slick, sculpted black hair, that widow’s peak and swarthy visage. Trust me, we’d know about him.

But what if he wore a big clown  hat or something. Couldn’t he keep his identity hidden?

No, because for vampires, eventually their urges get the better of them. Try as they might, they’ll spot a rich, bulging neck vein, and they just have to go for it, no matter where they are.

Gosh, it seems like that could be embarrassing for them.

Indeed. And messy, too.

Figo ro, Figa ro, Figa ro Ouch! If only he could get the eyebrow lift to go along with the sneer. Bela Lugosi could give him a few pointers. Or pointed teeth.
