Halloween

Baby Pumpkin

“This is my friend’s husband inside a pumpkin bounce house. Nothing better than a family outing where you see a live breech birth.”

Smoked

“My mom was always good at making Halloween costumes no matter what I wanted to be. She asked 8 year old me what I wanted to be so I said ‘a cigarette!” She got to work and made me a Marlboro, lit with ashes at the top. Needless to say, the school banned any cigarette related costumes the next year.”

Milk Of Magnesia

“I took pride in creating my own costumes. I thought this costume would generate a lot of laughs. In retrospect, constipation is more funny to 9 year-olds than the population as a whole.”

Happy As A Clam

“My Halloween costume in 1992: spaghetti and clam sauce. There’s a big plexiglass fork on the side sticking up. My dad dribbled real clam juice all over me so no one would get too close at the middle school dance.”

Sharp Objects

“Florida, Halloween 1980. Me and my dad. My parents took a very liberal approach to the question of whether babies should be allowed to carve their own pumpkins.”

Justice League

“My parents took me to a Halloween autograph session with ‘Justice League’ superheroes. Now that I look at it 30 years later I find it quite creepy, particularly Spider-Man.”
