hahahallowe'en

me, pre-coffee, mid-the usual morning braindump: "Oh, I just had the best idea for a Halloween costume! It could win contests!"

Mike, who has learned that sometimes my morning braindump can be somewhat disjointed and nonsensical: "Okay..."

me, giggling: "Well, I'd go as an Elmer Fudd-esque hunter, but on crutches because I'd have my leg all wrapped up in bloody bandages. With maybe a toy rifle. And you could go dressed as a grizzly, carrying a bear trap with a fake bloody partial leg caught in it."

Mike, incredulous: "......"

me: "What? It'd be funny!"

Mike, pouring me coffee: "If you say so..."

I think he's just upset that he has to be the bear.

Am I the only one who heard "Not my gumdrop buttons!" when I saw that picture.

Breda, that's a great idea!

DaddyBear beat me to it!

That's funny enough that I'd actually get into costume for it, were you more closely located. Stop being a wet blanket, Mike!

That's funny enough I'd *make* the costumes for it.

MonteG said...

How about if he dressed up like a Monty-Python-and-the-Holy-Grail-bunny version of Bugs Bunny?

Old NFO said...

Interesting take there Breda, and I can imagine the expressions from those who don't know you :-)

Ed Rasimus said...

MontyG is close, but not the vicious bunny. The costume would be the Black Knight..."You just knicked me. It's only a flesh wound..."

I could only feel sorry for the permanently psychically damaged kiddies who appeared at your front door to first encounter you and then the Bear.

wv: "costme"-- an outfit without U in it.

Would it help if you told Mike he could modify the bear costume to be a wookie suit, afterwards?

Or you could be the zombie version-- Little Dead riding Hood and he could be the wolf carrying the chomped-on leg. Or a woodsman with an axe. Both zombies, of course.

Your ideas are adorable, and yeah, would definitely win contests. I love the Gingerman, too. :)

We crippled-up types find humor in things that make normal people look at us with an odd expression. Wait, they did that before the wreck, too....
