Few know that after her retirement from haunting the dark-wooded forests of Russia and Eastern Europe, Baba Yaga re-settled in New Orleans. Trying to shed to “local celebrity” thing, she’s having some modifications done to her home so that it blends in a little better with the neighborhood. Even so, she can still occasionally be seen at coffee houses, her mortar parked between Brad Pitt and Harry Shearer.

I kid you.

I am a kidder.
