Spooktacular is Not a Word

posted by on October 21 at 14:05 PM


So, Halloween will soon be upon us, and that means costumes.

I’m still trying to decide between sexy judge and commercial for abortion.

In the meantime, delight yourselves with Best Week Ever’s list of 2008’s Top Ten Humiliating Pet Costumes. (Dressing your dog up as Goofy is just wrong.)

If you happen to like both Halloween and reading, The University Bookstore is having a Literary Halloween party, inviting folks to come dressed as their favorite authors or literary figures. Here’s what I’ll be wearing:

Chaim Potok's best book, IMO.

Ha! You know, Chaim Potok was kind enough to visit and speak at our redneck PA high school when his daughter married our born again principal's son. Very nice man.

OK, now you're just trying to make me laugh out loud, you naughty man. I like the baby costume.

Is that a picture of the Republican National Committee?

"Also available in plus sizes." Ewwww...

I'm trying to decide between 70s-era police detective and commercial pilot, both of which would utilize my absolutely fucking phenomenal mustache.

I think I'm going to go as a lovely lady, a la late Judy Garland, if Mrs. Fnarf will let me.

Will you have a beard and a paintbrush, too?

That name tag made me laugh out loud. I read My Name Is Asher Lev in my junior English class and I loved it.

Next you'll be telling us that scare-riffic isn't a word either. Go on, pull the other one.

I was torn between "Sexy U.N. Arms Inspector" and "Botched Vasectomy," but then I remembered that last week, while drunken, I purchased my Sexy Parking Meter costume online. It looks exactly like the normal "Pay To Park" machines you see on the street, but when you insert money I keep it.

You are a funny man David Schmader.

If I go, it'll be as Sexy Roman Poet Virgil.

Anyone know where I can find a white whale costume? Seriously.

Poor Mrs. Fnarf! Slog is making her husband gay. :~[
