From Stan Kegel and Richard Lederer.
Once upon a slime, a girl ghoul fell in love with a mummy. Alas, the girl ghoul did not know much about the proper care of mummies, and in a couple of weeks the mummy began to unravel and disintegrated. Which just goes to prove that a ghoul and her mummy are soon parted.
Then the ghoul fell in love with a little devil, who turned out to be a loving and generous sweetheart. The little devil showered the girl ghoul with bright flowers, high-fashion clothes, and expensive jewelry. Which just goes to prove that demons are a ghoul’s best fiend.
