Knott's Scary Farm Show Line-Up Leaves Fans Hanging

August 5, 2021, 1:08 PM · Knott's Berry Farm this morning revealed an expanded line-up of shows for this year's Knott's Scary Farm event. But one of Knott's long-standing Halloween traditions was missing.

If it’s not coming back, good riddance. The Hanging was awful. So much cringe and not funny.

Satire that punches up is welcome and even necessary at times. Satire that punches down just needs to go away.
