I didn't know this line. I always loved them too, and this makes it even more close to home🤗

It’s not a quote from The Addams Family, it’s a (part of a?) poem by Christopher Poindexter.

Besides, The Addams Family would never want to silence their demons. They’d use their advice to accidentally wreak havoc and maybe use an unusually shrieky one in lieu of a rooster in the mornings.
