How to win your office costume contest.

Listen up, kids. I'm going to tell you how to win "best costume" without even really trying. It doesn't even matter that we didn't actually HAVE a costume contest at work, but it was pretty much unanimous that I totally won. Here is the magic formula:

Dress up like someone you work with. It seriously kills EVERY TIME. Today, I dressed up like my esteemed collegue Platypus. People were seriously freaking out over it. What did I do? I wore my normal clothes and put on a toque. He wears a toque because he hates his haircut at the moment. It really could not have been more simple.

The results? I am now a legend in Halloween costuming in this office. It is seriously hilarious. Though I am getting quite tired of people calling me by his name instead of my own. If they keep doing it tomorrow I am going to be seriously pissed.

ANYWAYS, the point is that if you pick someone in the office that has a certain "look" about them and has a fairly good sense of humour, it will go over like gangbusters. Woot.

Not funny. Ever.
And I don't wear the toque to cover my bad haircut...I wear it cause I like it. It's a pretty sweetass toque.

Oh, come on! If you hated it so much, then why were you helping me to improve the costume?

AND... you did use the toque to cover your bad haircut last year. I remember it well. (It wasn't a bad haircut... you are just a baby.)

PS: Majority rules... and the majority thought it was FRIGGIN' HILARIOUS.
