I thought I had this year’s Halloween costume contest in the bag.
I went as a modern version of 19th U.S. President Rutherford B. Hayes, if he was younger and looked different.
I lost, however, to someone dressed as a slutty Shel Silverstein.
“Since when did Halloween become less about spooky and more about provocative?” I wondered aloud.
“Since when did Halloween become less about the candy and more about the eye candy?” Some woman said.
And with that, I also lost the clever observation contest.
Apparently , Rutherford B. Hayes costumes have lost their cache .. Styles change . You will need to keep up .
Weird. I went with the slutty Rutherford B. Hayes costume and won our newsroom costume party…
