Hallowe'en puns

I love puns! Last year I found a number of ideas for punny Hallowe'en costumes, and went searching again for this year's ideas.

I ended up using the "MasterCard" costume - particularly appropriate given that it's one of the credit union services/products!

My other favorites - 'Spice Rack' and 'Nudist on Strike - wear your usual clothes!'. Here's my collection ...

- Devil in a blue dress: blue dress, devil ears/pitchfork
- melted snowman - carrots, scarf, sticks, drench in water
- partly cloudy with chance of rain - cotton balls, water gun
- shot in the dark - black costume, shot glass around neck
- CD burner - cd/dvd strung as necklace and lighter
- baby sitter - strap a doll to your backside
- stoned - glue rocks to a sweat suit
- johnny on the spot - wear "Johnny" name tag, carry a circle big enough to stand on - throw it on the floor and stand on it
- aircraft carrier - carry small toy airplanes
- hole in one - large "1" on chest, with a hole in the middle of the "1"
- kangaroo - tape a brown paper bag to stomach
- goldfinger - paint one finger gold

- someone you can count on - wear all black, cut out big, bright numbers & attach them to your clothes
- magic 8 ball - wear all black, cut out large 8 tape it to your back - answer "reply hazy, try again" or "cannot preduct now" - tell them to shake you & ask you a question
- freudian slip: wear a slip and name tag "Freud"
- autograph book - wear white pants & shirt - carry a Sharpy pen and have people sign you
