When I was a little kid I walked up my friends house that was all spooked out. Little did I know that he was the scarecrow sitting next to the door. So I rang the door bell and his mom gave me candy. Just as she said "Happy Halloween" my friend jumped out the seat and scared the crap outta me.. literally :/

The ranking of adult costumes just can't be right. I'm certain we'll see A LOT more "Sarah Palins" than "Cats" or "Nurses" this year.

Sarah Palin is pretty. At least she's better than Hillary.

If you can't find you're "Planet of the apes mask", just substitute an "Obama" mask, no one will know the difference.

And if you can't find a "Fat, uneducated, racist white trash hooker" mask, just substitute one fore a mask of your mother, no one will know the difference, and you might set America back 100 years.

How disappointing!

I saw the picture and expected a forum about Phestus O'Boyle.

Along with some details about why Madonna divorced her husband for Phestus.

Actual fact: 31% of all Americans believe in (and are scared of) witches.

Found on a statistics TV show which pulls stats from a number of reports.

Does anyone else find this fact scary?

The problem with statistics is that 83.51% are made up on the spot.

You should celebrate too, after all, "Everybody's Irish on Halloween"!

No, wait, that's Saint Patrick's Day where everybody is Irish. Never mind.
