All Hallow's Eve - Spooky Spots

It's that time of year again, as we approach the hour when all sorts of creepy ghouls come out to demand treats and threaten to devour the souls of those who would deny them. No, I'm not talking about Election Day. It's Halloween! In honor of America's only borderline-Satan-worshipping holiday, Forbes has compiled a list of the world's creepiest places. Wouldn't you know it?--the list features Philadelphia's own Mutter Museum:
The Mutter Museum may not be haunted, but there are plenty of items inside to make tingles go down your spine. The museum is dedicated to showcasing disease and injuries, and general medical abnormalities. There are over 20,000 strange items, ranging from specimens and photographs of Civil War injuries, to the remains of Siamese twins Chang and Eng. Visitors can also see the skeleton of a midget, monkey organs and a 27-foot long colon.

Link. Also, dude, "midget" is not the preferred nomenclature. The list also includes the Paris catacombs,
Ireland's Charleveille Castle, and Salem, Massachusetts, so you can see that it's not entirely Amero-centric. Instead, it's appropriately Euro-Amero-centric, because I can't think of any place in the world outside the United State or Europe that would be spooky.

I'm as tempted to constantly quote "The Big Lebowski" as the next guy/gal, but I am a little worried that we're spreading an incorrect use of the word "nomenclature." But hey, if it happens, it happens, right? Proscriptive grammarians be damned.
