GREAT. Now EVERYBODY'S going to dress up as Flaming Carrot this year. Stupid internets spoil everything.

Alternatively you could opt of a flaming bananna.

Bah--I spent hours making a mask last year, only to have, like, two people in the city recognize it. This year, I just bought one (but it's way cool).

You could walk up to someone dressed as the grim reaper (easy to find on Halloween) and state:

"Yes Mr. Death, I'll play you a game! But not chess... BAH!-- FOOEY! My game is--- Whiffleball! HA! HA! HA!"

The Flaming Carrot may get all the ladies, but nobody gets more action than Roman Boy.

Well, I guess that depends on how you define "action".

How about an elephant?

My daughter and I are going out as John Karr and Jon Benet Ramsey. Can't wait for the look of horror on people's faces!

I'm not looking forward to all the variations on "Steve Irwin with a stingray in his chest" that will dominate the costume scene this year.

Scoo : "Yes Mr. Death, I'll play you a game! But not chess... BAH!-- FOOEY! My game is--- Whiffleball! HA! HA! HA!"

I dunno Scoo, sounds like a chancey proposition to me; what if, against all odds, you challenge the real Death? I mean, he's been swinging that scythe for a couple of millennia. I bet he'd knock the fuck out of a whiffleball.

Then you would be well and truly screwed.

Death doesn't shop for robes at seasonal Halloween stores.

Does he?

Already tried it. My mask was made of cardboard, and fortunately oxygen deprivation quickly set in, which I think is the great secret to acting and speaking like Flaming Carrot. On the other hand, walking around with flippers indoors at a crowded party was slightly impractical.

And bananna == banana
...and == == =.

Fourtune favors the bold indeed. FC creator Bob Burden has always been a hero of mine...

Public Immortality

What if our days become our dreams? (What then Horatio?)

Once I was cutting the buttons off a pile of shirts to be thrown away. LIke the american indians who used all the parts of the buffalo they killed. (they put the horns on their hats and burned buffalo chips in their fires). I was canabalizing useless shirts. I cut out some pockets, perhaps to use as handy things to polish shoes. As the pile of pockets grew, I smiled. That night I took them out with me on my rounds.

What do I have in my pocket?

More pockets.

Girls loved them.

Put a pocket to her cheek and let her eyes roll in ecstasy.

Here! You can have one.

Bartenders even accepted them as tips.

I live on Pocket Street.

The guy at the 7-11 doesn't understand and wants to call the police.

A lecture oon the invention of the pocket in medievil times.

How many pockets can you fit into your mouth?

At the end of the night I take all of those damned things and glu-stick them all over the car the 7-11 attendant parked out back. He will at least have something to write home about this week.

...and == == =.

== == =? = != ==. == == ==.

Or so I've been led to believe.
