    For you folks with kids, one of the best costume ideas I've ever seen came from some friends, who dressed their infant in a bee outfit and then wore white pants, long white coats, white gloves and pith helmets with veils. They were the beekeepers.

    I went as Hunter S. Thompson for a couple of Halloweens. Last year, I went as a high school basketball coach, complete with whistle. I've got one female friend urging me to go as a pimp, which is kind of played out, but I'll do it if she goes as one of my hos.

    Did you talk in cliches all night? :D

    A few years back, one of my friends went as some fictional character named "Futureman 3000." He wore a cardboard box, and covered himself in tin foil and silverware. Funny stuff.

    Maybe I'll go as Bo Jackson again...


    If you recall, the kiddie uniforms of the early 1990s featured the infamous single-bar facemask. Ah, the memories.

    I don't believe I've ever seen a Super Nintendo used like that.

    My crowning costume, which I might reprise this year, was to use posterboards to create a milk carton and had my face sticking out the side with the words "Have you seen this child?" above my head.

    My other fallback is Matt Foley -- "Hey, Dad, I can't see real good....is that Bill Shakespeare over there?"

    I usually go as a sailor. I've still got my uniform, ribbons, medals, etc.

    One of my friends was huge Prince fan and he decided to go as Prince to his fraternity's halloween party. He got the purple suit, the frilly shirt, a pair of funky shoes, the whole get-up and he was just so excited about it. Mind you, he's 6-2 and about as Irish as they come. After the weekend I called him to see how the party went.

    "Sucked. Sucked so bad."


    "I spent the whole night telling people, 'No, I am not Elvis!' Do people not recognize Prince when they see him?!?!?"

    Had he worn purple get-up with the assless chaps, maybe he could have avoided the confusion. ::)
