On the credits of The Simpsons “Treehouse of Horror” episodes, the producers and staff always replace their unfunny and unspooky real names with spooky and funny “Halloween Names.” (Except for a couple years where we didn’t for reasons I forget.)

MATT GROENING becomes BAT GROENING. SPOO-OO-OOO-KY! FUUU-NNNNNN-YYYYYYYY!

My past Halloween Names are (with letter grade):

SELMANIMAL (C-)
NIGHTMARE ON SELMAN STREET (C)
MATT SKELETON (D)
bloodselman@aol.com (what the F?)
ISLAND OF LOST SELMANS (D+)
MATT WOLFMAN (D-)
SELMAN OF THE CORN (B-)
MATT SARUMAN (A+++++++++++++++++++)

Obviously it’s not a legacy of greatness. So, if anyone in bored-on-the-internet land has any ideas for the Matt Selman Halloween name for “Treehouse of Horror XIX” (airing November 2, 2008), that would be super. A few tips:

Halloween Names must be short. 30 characters or less. Less is better. And please, no marriage proposals, inside jokes for your buddies, lame Lord of the Rings puns, insults to me (unless they are really, really personal) insults to The Simpsons, spec scripts for The Simpsons, Nigerian money scams, or ads for porn sites (unless it is a really great porn site.)

Post all Halloween Name submissions in the comments section of this blog post. Enter as many times as you want. Submissions are due October 10, 2008. The winner will get a prize, I swear. (WARNING: THE WINNER-SELECTION AND PRIZE-GIVING PROCESS WILL NOT BE IN ANY WAY FAIR.)
