The Scariest Hashtag Ever? Enter #NPRHalloweenNames At Your Own Risk

Here at NPR, we're always game for a good public radio spoof. And yesterday, the terrifyingly funny folks from Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me!( @waitwait) started their own public radio, shall we say, spook.

It all started with this tweet (which was clearly dying for a response):

Throughout the day, NPR fans and staff alike chimed in with various creative and creepy plays-on-words using the hashtag #NPRHalloweenNames. We especially loved 'Mourning Edition,' 'StoryCorpse' and 'Flesh Air.'

Which was your favorite?

And if you're not Terry Gross-ed out after you finish reading the tweets below, there's still time before Halloween to come up with more #NPRHalloweenNames. (Not that we're counting!)

For more spooky puns and generally irreverent banter from Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me!, check out this Sand witch Monday review of the Limited Edition Candy Corn Oreo:
