October 26th National Frankenstein Friday

Okay, so we all know Mary Shelly wrote Frankenstein in 1818 when she was only 21 years old. Wow, what an imagination! With Halloween and Frankenstein Day both coming up soon, it’s nice to kick it off with a Frankenstein Friday. The idea was created by Ron MacClosky, who appropriately won the “Franky” award for doing so.

I mean, who doesn’t know about Frankenstein? Children, adults, other monsters… we all know about Frankenstein! I even wrote a play about a fashionable, intelligent Frank Einstein (Available on Playscripts.com). The monster has been played as sad, humorous, curious and just about any other emotion you can imagine.

The thing is, his name shouldn’t be Frankenstein because that was his creators name. If want his last name to be Frankenstein then, okay… but he needed to be given a first name as well. Maybe that’s why he roamed the countryside so angry all the time. How would you like it is people only called you by your last name!?!

He is probably the only monster ever created that heart could really have belonged to daddy. He was very conflicted as well. He had one arm that had belonged to a man named White. The other belonged to a man named Wong. That makes it easy to understand that in the heat of the moment, he might not be able to know White from Wong.

So, you might ask why do we celebrate Frankenstein Friday? It’s simply because if we didn’t we might find ourselves Abbey Normal. Think about it.

How to celebrate – Read the first chapter of Frankenstein but wait to read the rest on Frankenstein Day. If you want a good laugh, watch “Young Frankenstein”. Experiment n your own by mixing parts from a Barbie doll and a GI Joe.
