By the way... Unlike the deviled eggs in this clip from the movie "Toys" with Robin Williams, these eggs only look spooky. :)

6 hard boiled eggs
1/4 c mayonnaise
1-2 tsp yellow mustard
salt/ pepper to taste
red and blue food coloring
Slice your hard boiled eggs in half lengthwise. Scoop (or pop) out the yellow yolk into a small bowl.
Mash up the yolks with a fork and then add mayonnaise and mustard. Blend well to make as smooth as possible. Add salt and pepper according to your tastes. You may also want to add more mayonnaise or mustard depending on your taste. Add a couple drops of blue food coloring and mix well.
Spoon your yolk mixture into a piping bag and cut off a hole at the end. (it should be big enough for the thick mixture to come out, but small enough so you can control the amount coming out. Trust me, it's much easier to pipe the yolk mixture into the eggs than it is to scoop it with a spoon! And if you try to use a ziploc baggie, this mixture is so thick that the baggie may burst while piping. Um, so I have had it burst...a few times. Until I learned my lesson and used a piping bag)Pipe the egg yolks into the cavities of the egg whites.
Cut your olives into slices. You can choose to leave them round and have round black eyeballs in the middle, or cut smaller pieces of olive to represent the iris. I think that if you used the round slices it would be awesome to also add in some red pimento or red bell pepper to have red eyeballs. Place your olives in the middle of the yolk.
Squeeze a little red food coloring onto a plate or even a spoon to use. Take the tip of your toothpick and dip it in the food coloring. Now draw red squiggle lines to make it look like the eyes are blood shot.
Or if you just want to make regular deviled eggs, don't add the food coloring or olives. They're still just as tasty.
