Sexy, Sexy Abraham Lincoln

posted by on October 9 at 15:27 PM

I’ve been busy working on the news section all day, and I haven’t had much time to Slog. However—in lieu of my usual angry-feminist post about sexy, sexy kitten/witch/fairy/trash collector costumes for women—I wanted to share with readers this awesome faux commercial, which parodies everything I’ve ever said about women’s Halloween costumes, and then some. (Get your hot angry feminist Halloween action over here.)

P.S. Although my favorite costume in this bunch is obviously “sexy 1900s steel conglomerate tycoon,” closely followed by “a frog,” I’m hoping someone will come up with a “sexy feminist” cartoon. Sexy Mary Wollstonecraft? Sexy Susan Faludi? The possibilities are endless.

Hahaha, you're right... the sexy 1900s steel conglomerate tycoon is best.

I can't even begin to tell you how much this enrages me because I HAVE ALREADY INVENTED THIS JOKE. Last year, I literally was SEXY ABRAHAM LINCOLN, in response to Naughty Cop and Sexy Ladybug or whatever. Check it out:

Several months ago, I decided upon Sexy Unabomber, with friends joining me as Sexy Jesus and Sexy Dale Chihuly. I KNEW I SHOULD HAVE COPYRIGHTED THAT SHIT.

Oh please @4, Sarah Silverman invented this joke like five years ago on Crank Yankers when she called up a costume shop trying to get a sexy Hitler costume.

Posted by twee | October 9, 2007 4:12 PM

@9 I am familiar with this shitty show that you speak of. Yes, Silverman called about the costume, but did she parade around town dressed as Sexy Hitler? NO.

This indicates a lack of joke-commitment to me. So, I'm going to go ahead and take credit for it.

Does anyone know where to find a Sexy Bob the Builder costume?

Posted by Scottie | October 9, 2007 4:23 PM

Silverman would be a very sexy Hitler.

@10 How do you know she didn't?

Posted by twee | October 9, 2007 5:01 PM

You haven't seen sexy until you've seen the "poopie shorts" costume.

Posted by Fnarf | October 9, 2007 5:10 PM

Posted by Sexy Turd Furgeson | October 9, 2007 6:38 PM

A friend of mine went as a sexy wet floor sign last year (sandwich board painted like one of those plastic wet floor signs and fishnet stockings).

Is there any ancient meme floating around the web that Erica won't hop on and hump within an inch of its life? Jesus.

Posted by Roger Williams | October 10, 2007 3:04 AM

Yes, you saw this last year and it is still completely hilarious.

Sexy Mustard!

Posted by yes | October 10, 2007 3:15 AM

but what's sexier than taking your inspiration from the DSM-IV?

Posted by sexy suv | October 10, 2007 7:19 AM

I was totally going to set everyone straight about your Babe-raham Lincoln costume back in the day, Erin. Good thing you were here to do it yourself. You clearly win.

Yay for sexy Jesus!

Posted by MemyselfandEYE | October 10, 2007 9:55 AM

Thanks for the inspiration! Now instead of dressing up as a baby with blood all over, I'm going to wear fishnets and go as "Sexy Aborted Fetus"
