    If you've ever seen the matt foley, motivation speaker skit by Chris Farley on SNL, that would be a good one. Thats what i'm being this year. All you need is:

    A really ugly plaid jacket
    white dress shirt
    really ugly tie
    dress pants
    plastic rim glasses
    WHITE socks :D

    The best one I came up with a few years ago was real easy. Get a black pair of pants and a black shirt, A roll of masking tape and a few Hot Wheels (my kids have about 3,000).

    Run 2 parallel stripes of masking tape about an inch apart down your shirt from your neck to your crotch, then continue one of each down each leg and put another one parallel to that about an inch apart like the ones on your shirt. Now stick a few of the hotwheels on and BINGO....

    You're a fork in the road.

    Either Harry Caray or a giant hotdog covered in mustard and relish...delicious

    Another good one is Mike Jones: just dress in all black and scream out your name, phone number, and "who?" as much as you can.

    Someone I know is wrapping a sheet around himself and going as Pontious Pilot (sp?). I have a feeling he'll get shot.

    Last year I ruined Halloween when I was sick with strep throat and accidently mooned a young family of five. It really was an accident. I wonder if they'll come by here again this year... :meh:

    If you are hairy then you can do what Im doing:

    Work: Lumberjack: Flannel Shirt, Jeans, Suspenders, Work-Boots and a Beanie. Extra points for a stuffed squirel on your shoulder.

    Gig#1: Zombie Jesus: Robe, crown of thorns, pale face paint, blood from the mouth, stigmata marks, & most importantly audience with a good sense of humor thats already going to hell.

    Gig#2: Catholic School Girl: girlfriends old school uniform, beard, & lots and lots of body hair. Without the body hair and beard its not funny, its just creepy.

    I know someone who's going as darth vader going as a cowboy to a costume party. He wears a cowboy mask over a darth vader mask and a cowboy costume, it's brilliant.

    My wife got me a Devo yellow suit at Target to wear. I think it looks quite snazzy.

  19. I know some people who dressed up as lubricated condoms once.

    I don't know what they used as lubricant, but it was all over them, and they ran around the place hugging people. It was disgusting and funny at the same time.
