Halloween was suppose to be creepy.  It's only recently that it's become more about tarted up sluts and drunkards and less about being scary

I think this torso-face thing was in an episode of The Simpsons sometime in the early '90s and it's been bothering me ever since.

The 70's and 80's had a vaudeville style act where the torsos wore top hats and whistled. They hit the rounds of late night talk shows and other pre-cable shows. The Simpsons were probably parodying them.

My best costume evah .. Old black suit that never fit well. Black panty house over my head with eye holes cut out. Black slouchy fedora. Black turtleneck unrolled. Black boots, black rubber gloves and black goggles over the eye holes.

You could not see me sitting in my black-painted rocking chair in the dark, off by the lilac bushes. Kids come up the sidewalk (lived in the city at the time) I'd let them get to the door, then stand up and ask, "Want some candy?"

Score - plenty of kids actually cried. One parent tried to hit me. I smelled poop after one group left.

Cheap, effective.

BTW - #1 is so f*cking wonderful I may have to try that.

Several of them look on par with the dog suit from the Shining, so I vote they'd still be scary.

Hmm... I got images of strawberry desserts and Bratz dolls.  I think GaGa was in there, too.  Which are all technically correct (the best kind) in that they are tarts, sluts, and various combinations thereof, but overall I'd say the results were disappointing.

This. It's a pagan festival of the dead. You wore a scary outfit to confuse their mouldering souls, which walked the earth on this night when the veil was thin between life and what comes after.

The treats were appeasements. Appeasements, sir!

Thank you very much for the Total FARK! Wish I could get the hang of my phone's interface to show her to you. We went to the grocery store for avacados and came back with a puppy. Stray hanging out in the grass by a busy street. Wife went to look at the puppy some kids were talking about. Pup rolled over on her back, stood up and then leaped into her arms. She was hooked. We stopped at another store and she gave me the puppy while she got hamburger. When she got back I said "Her name is Jean Louise, but her daddy calls her 'Scout'." Favorite book. Top 3 favorite movie.
