LODI, N.J — The Crimson Ghost, the longtime logo for the Misfits, successfully passed its algebra test last week thanks to after-school tutoring from a caricature drawing of Milo Aukerman, the Descendents’ iconic logo, sources close to the popular logos confirmed.
“I’m glad to see the Crimson Ghost putting away the comic books and old monster movies for once, and finally start applying itself,” said Pigpen, the Grateful Dead Bear who taught the class. “It’s honestly — and I don’t use this term lightly — really groovy.”
The straight-laced Descendents logo knew that improving the Crimson Ghost’s test scores would be no easy task.
“It took a lot of coffee-fueled nights, and a few missed fishing trips, but I wanted to help my friend in need,” the Milo doodle said. “I’m just glad ol’ Crimmy came to me and not that alcoholic Social Distortion skeleton. Those two wouldn’t have gotten anything done. [The Misfits logo] has got a great vocabulary, but math just is not his thing. Before I got involved his GPA was a measly .138.”
The legendary Misfits logo was reportedly beside himself after receiving his test scores, and could not thank his line-drawing friend enough for the tutoring.
“It was really ‘ghoul’ of him to help me out,” the Misfits logo growled earnestly. “Especially after I killed his friend, Jean, earlier in the semester. I did have mommy’s permission to do so, but I could see why he’d still be upset.”
Overcome with joy, he added, “Whoooooaaa — whooooooooaa, whoa!”
Now on the fast track to graduation, the iconic images are looking forward to the future.
“For the first time ever, I can see myself pursuing higher education. I really don’t want to go into the family horror business,” said the Crimson Ghost. “In my opinion, there’s too much of that, anyway.”
For his part, the Descendents mascot more than shared his cohort’s enthusiasm.
“Oh, Crimmy is definitely going to college one way or another,” he said, “whether on his own, or, more likely, scrawled on a notebook, or a poorly done tattoo.”
