The Halloween Contest

I thought I had this year’s Halloween costume contest in the bag. pumpkin

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.
