Scariest Halloween Costumes

Filed under: Surely a Jest? — Punchinello @ 4:17 pm

I was just thinking about how as little kids, even down to toddler-age, we get to dress up in a costume, go out and wander around the neighborhood, then get candy. Okay, not so much wandering around outside nowadays, but even so, the costume and reward is there. Maybe that’s why so many of us end up living a life dressed in a psychological costume.

Then I got to thinking about the two scariest costumes kids could wear tonight, for Halloween. One would be to show up at the front door in a suit and tie, carrying an attachĂ© case and telling the homeowner, “I’m a conservative!” In lots of neighborhoods that’d scare the crap out of people.

Or, how about this: your toddler chould wear a pasted-on beard, a University of Berkeley sweatshirt and Berkenstock sandals, telling the homeowner, “I’m a liberal!” Depending on the neighborhood.

Hm…even better would be the beard, sweatshirt and sandals, but carrying a plastic chainsaw.


Trick or treat!!!!!” (Happy excitement as child waves around plastic chainsaw.)

“Oh my! And who are you supposed to be, little girl?”

“I’m a liberal cross-dressing tree logger who’s gone psychotic and is cutting down trees wherever I see them!”

Wouldn’t THAT be something!
