TFP Column: Halloween Costumes 2009

 
As those of you who follow "Just Blowing Smoke" know, every year around this time I publish a list of humorous Halloween costumes with a slightly political slant. (OK, I find them kind of funny anyway.) 

This year, I decided to try something just a bit different. There will in fact be a posting on Halloween tomorrow, but my costume list this year will instead be my column for the Toledo Free Press. It is something that Michael Miller and I have talked about from time to time, and this year he gave in to me on it (probably in order to make me quit badgering him)

This is one of the annual efforts that I most look forward to and I hope you enjoy it as well. As always, there is much more of far greater worth in every Toledo Free Press; and with this being the edition before the November election, even more so. 

So tomorrow when you are sitting next to the candy bowl and attempting to find excuses not to dip into it while waiting for those cute little kids to show up on your doorstep (or the mean little buggers that always show up at Casa de la Higgins), keep your copy of the TFP handy to occupy both your mind and your hands. Your waistline will thank you.

ok - let's try this again with tons of typos....

I considered dressing up as a DC politician. I would go to all the parties and tell people I was there to spend their money....

but it was too hard to explain....

I meant WITHOUT tons of typos...

maybe I need more coffee...

Maggie,

Maybe it would just be easier to carry in a big stack of paper, tell them that it was the latest legislation on ... anything, and then ask for all of their money.

After all, you would be dressing up like the government.
:-D

Maggie,

If I understand you correctly, you are planning on wearing a snake costume (as in the Garden of Eden)?

:-)
