Halloween Costume Ideas! These Are Good!

by

The big day is a-coming next Wednesday, so it’s time to start trotting out ideas that will be topical, scary, and wildly amusing.

Here are my best suggestions:

Angelina‘s leg

The chair Clint Eastwood talked to

Tan Mom dressed like Al Jolson

Travolta‘s masseur, with sticky hands

A Chick-fil-A sandwich with a “Marriage Inequality” sticker on it

Honey Boo Boo holding coupons for possum dinners

Big Bird strapped to the hood of a car

A whole binder full of women

Ann Romney

No, wait. That would be too scary.

Maybe just stay home?
