It’s not easy to talk the boy in the cowboy costume when mom makes you wear the ark.

That reminds of two costumes my mom forced me to wear:
1. a farm!
2. strawberry blossom
thats right, and iam a boy.
A mild accident occurs at Hogwarts as Harry Potter mispronounces “Whirlmearkakon” as Dumbledore smirks . . .
hahaha thats messed up
Lol, I first thought he was dressed as the bricks from Super Mario! Would have made an awesome costume!
Photo makes sense guys, I mean… Noah was smaller than the boat.
This is my English professor. I love it.
Oh wow! I had a Noah’s Ark costume when I was a kid too! My dad fashioned the boxes and rigged up a “suspenders” system to hold it up. Then he loaded me in the middle with a bunch of my stuffed animals, uh, stuffed in there with me. My mom got some faux grey fur and made me a long beard with it. Talk about embarrassing… But at least I wasn’t the only one…
To the potato kid- we’re peas of a pod… I was an apple the following year.
One kid at my daughter’s school had this superhero costume on with a big B on the chest. “Who are you?” I asked. BIBLE MAN. this was kindergarten. Poor Baby. Adults suck the fun out of everything, you know?
Priceless! Bibleman, brings the word to the people! His worst nemesis is the behemous yet not so catchy named Mr. Origin of the Species.
I thought the caption referred to a girl in the kitty costume originally? Is this just ANOTHER homophobic website I have to report to GLAAD that must erase any reference to homosexuality. I expect so much more in 2009!
WHAT?????? What is wrong with you?
the Mom is the brick house, behind them.
i didnt notice the animals at first, and i thought she was a brick house..hehe
Oh Holland – I knew you’d make it big one day…
Why can’t I just be a superhero like all the other kids?
“some would say you are the biggest superhero of them all… the original…”
thats exactly how their parents would have spun this idea around to be really cool…
Why is the ark made of bricks?
Someone’s mum was very, very ambitious that year.
the kid in the ark is a girl, fyi.
sorry holland– an ark to blame there… it’s been noted and our apologies for missing credit
I bet this is trick or treat for UNICEF. My mother made me dress as Jonah in the whale one year.
This reminds me when I went to a religious festival for Halloween and my mom made me an old woman from the bible I think it was Ruth..they had bobbing for apples and i smeared black makeup from my painted on wrinkles all over my face!
Awkward is when someone tells you a Halloween party is a Biblical theme and it’s really not. I only hope the young Ark and his little partner didn’t fall victim to the same fate.
Its Harry Potter!
Does my boat look big in this?
My parents were very religious and one year they gave out Bible tracts for Halloween instead of candy. I prayed none of my schoolmates knew it was my house.
I had a neighbor like that! Every year we got something religious- NEVER candy…not sure why we kept going there! LOL
Every Halloween his mother made him go as an inanimate object. Last year he was the Tower of Babel. The year before he went as the “Walls of Jericho.” But next year he would choose the costumes. He decided he would be the crazy man living in the tombs next to the cliffs. His little brother? Let’s just say he is lucky we handle swine flu differently today.
The crazy man in that story was naked, so that would be a hard costume for folks to guess.
OH MY G..!
this reminds me of the year my mom dressed my sister up as Little Miss Muffett–and I was the spider. The next year, my sister was Little Bo Peep, and I was a lamb. Thirty years later, I haven’t gotten over the fact that she got to wear pretty, frilly dresses, and I was dressed up like an ugly animal.
Too funny! You’d think your mom would have switched it up.
hahaha! That’s so hilarious!
Oh poor you!! Be sure you get dressed up as something fabulous this year. Marie Antoinette or Lady Gaga or something.
Oh Oops, when I first saw this I thought the poor boy was dressed as a ‘brick house’.
mighty mighty..lettin’ it all hang out. Tess, thanks for making my day!
to talk *to
I don’t know if I agree. For instance, how about this line?
“Hey, Kitty, looks like we’re in for some rain. A lot of rain.”
“Oh, and bring a friend.”
The religious boy is praying that his nose not itch…
I used to ove Bible character costume parties.
I went as a box of Morton’s salt one year – aluminum foil spout and everything! I was Lott’s wife.
My husband wore a t-shirt that read “Exxon Earnings” – he was a major prophet.
LMAO -glad I put my water down before I read that.
I am dying….Lot’s wife. Im laughing so hard I’m choking.
“Oh Mom, I said I wanted to be a Narc!
Winner winner chicken dinner!
Somehow the white shoes just bring the whole ensemble together…
Mom: “Ok, your choices this year are either Sodom & Gomorrah or Noah’s Arc.”
I bet she wanted to be the ark! This is totally something I would have come up with as a child. I was a potato one year.
I love that Noah’s beard appears to be a paper towel, glued to his face.
oops…i thought “Noah” was actually a ninja…..lol
That’s okay. I didn’t know it was supposed to be the Ark until I read the comment underneath the picture. I was trying to figure out why the “boat” looked like it was made of bricks.
I love how the animals are 2D and painted attached to the wood planks, they’re not even allowed on the ark properly.
Apparently, it’s also not easy to grammar the caption.
For the big kid:
1. Does this boat make my butt look big?
2. It was either be this or a whale… some choice!!!
For the little kid:
1. Whaddaya mean, how long can I tread water?
2. So I get candy for me, and she gets candy for two of each animal?!?!?!
OMG…i was just thinking that…after reading the caption a few times, i gave up…LOL
Engrish! Let’s Halloween!
Actually, this one is cute and creative. I wouldn’t consider it awkward unless there was water under that ark, if you know what I mean.
I wonder if anyone has ever gone as Jesus for Halloween.
To be fair, it probably wasn’t Halloween.
Actually, I like that these costumes are so homemade and haven’t cost a bomb. The awkwardness comes in the blackmailing possibilities in a few years time… though it obviously didn’t work since here it is!
It is possible it was for Halloween. Some Catholic churches will encourage the celebration of all Saints day where the children are asked to come in costumes. The only catch is that the costumes have to be nice costumes…. this one is far more creative than the hundreds of angels I have seen at one of these masses. And yes there were a few Jesus costumes in the crowd too.
that is true I am catholic and when we were trick or treating at church we were supposed to come as either saints or someone from the bible
yep. my boyfriend is going as jesus, and i, mary magdalene (i’ll be carrying our love-child)…gotta love dan brown
That’s awkward, cuz Jesus IS the son of Mary.
Although I don’t agree with what wordtoyourmother and her boyfriend are going as, I just wanted to point out that Jesus is not the son of Mary Magdalene, but another Mary.
um, mhb, I think the idea is that Jesus got Mary Magdelene pregnant…
Jesus was NOT the son of Mary Magdalene.
Exactly… Imaginary people don’t have parents.
Wow! That’s offensive.
Let’s leave the religion out of it people…
On a seperate, more tangible note I’ll be going as Jesus Christ Trooperstar.
Let’s leave the dorkiness out of this people
I’ve always thought Jesus likely has a good sense of humor.
But wow…nothing like sticking it to an organized religion to make you feel superior/clever, right?
Lighten up. Doesn’t someone generally dress as Jesus for religious Easter pageants? What’s the difference?
I think that idea rocks!!
That’s a great idea!!! I love it!!!
For the record, I think your idea is very funny – a great ‘pair’ costume. Will your love-child be dressed like a Grail too? I envision the Grail looking like a Stanley Cup
Awesome idea!!! I love anything that offends people because they will use any excuse to be offended!! This kind of makes me wanna post a link to the most offensive Halloween costume I’ve ever seen– it was at a party like 4 years ago,but it will REALLY get some panties in a bunch.
Boppie- I always imagined it more as as Tennis style cup… the bowl being more prominent then anything else.
My friend used to go as Jesus every year. All he needed was a sheet, pillowcase, sandals and a wooden cross on a rope. Oh, and some dirt to make a beard. Some folks got really offended, imagine that – Classic!
Why bring the hate? This is supposed to be a fun site.
you know, i wonder that ALL of the time.
No treat? Then the trick is it’s gonna start raining REAL hard!
