Halloween Challenge, Day 5: “Mr. Coffin”

Does your coffin keep you from getting restful daytime slumber? Does prepping your casket rob you of precious village tormenting time?

We have the solution for you!

Introducing Mr. Coffin®! The world’s first automated coffin attendant!

No more fluffing the cushions for just that right feel! No more de-webbing after a night of spider wrangling! No more cleaning up after your casket companions!

Not enigmatic but certainly automatic, with Mr. Coffin®, being undead has never been so good!

Enjoy a cozy coffin every day with Mr. Coffin®!!

(Now with auto-start timer!)
