My friend, Mary Margaret sent a late night, vodka infused email. Her un-edited post Halloween suggestions follow:
To prove my point, some
halfwitted parents dressed their baby like the pope and paraded him trick or treating on the white house lawn, riding a mini Popemobile. (Wonder if baby mama’s name is Rose Mary). That’s scary. I’m not religious, observant, I am cautious. Why take the risk of pissing off offending a well-connected religious figure? If I were the parents of the kid, I’d be keeping an eye out for a giant asteroid using me for target practice. I wonder if they know you can purchase amulets on Amazon prime.
If they wanted to dress the kid as a public figure, the Republicans are masters at scare tactics.
They’ve got that Hippocratic oath thing going on too (Delete that; it’s doctors). I confuse the two because the Republicans are obsessed with our health.
If the parents wanted a religious icon, Mike Huckabee is a preacher. He isn’t a sharp dresser and doesn’t drive a special car, but has that folksy-jovial Pope-alike thing going on. (Have you noticed that Mike bears an amazing resemblance to Spanky in the Little Rascal series?)
The kid could have trick or treated as Pinocchio/Ted Cruz (
They look alike and I get them confused.) He could have toilet papered the white-house lawn then lied about it if he got caught.
The parents have a knack for customizing service vehicles. Why didn’t they dress the kid like a food truck and pass him off as Chris Christi?
Thanksgiving is right around the corner. I’m waiting for the Donald Trump look- alike turkey centerpieces to hit Walmart.
Your friend, Mary Margaret
