Let’s try to get a little Halloween Spirit going okay?
(Ken steps up to podium)
Ever since Michael Myers first pulled on his William Shatner mask.
(It so was a 'Shat-Mask', go and look it up if you don’t believe me.)
Well ever since then, people have celebrated the movie ‘Halloween’ by having a sort of a ‘Halloween Day’ on October 31st.
On that day us good folk in Ireland do a little something called ‘Trick or Threatening’ – you call to your neighbour’s door and say, “Give me all of your sweets or I will feckin’ burst ya.”
It’s a real blast.
So, to inject a little true horror into your virtual after-life, my good friend Bad Evan is having a nice Halloween competition over at his place and it doesn’t take too much effort to join in and possibly bag yourself Five Hundred Real Live Dollars.
That’s right $500! (and a gratuitous exclamation mark too).
What to do? What to do?
I’ll tell you, shall I?
When you’re all dressed up in your scary finery for this ‘Halloween Movie Night’ thing (see above), get your picture taken by somebody you trust (or not) and then email the digital result off to Evan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Just do it by November 3rd – ‘cos we’ll all be focused heavily on Christmas after that...
The other judges are:
And the competition is sponsored by BuyCostumes.
All the gory details (see what I did there?) about this competition are over at Bad Evan’s place.
Go and look for yourself - what am I, your Mummy?
Suffice it for me to say that your truly horrible photo should weigh no more that One Mega Byte (doesn’t Dracula do Mega Bites?) and should contain no nudity so… put that away... go on, just gather it up and tuck it back in… there’s a good girl.
I myself would be cheerfully submitting my famous ‘Jamie Lee Curtis’ outfit – not the one from ‘Halloween’ but rather the one from ‘Trading Places’ (it’s a very fine costume but it gets a tad heavy after a time).
But I can’t enter, I just can’t…
‘Why not?’ I hear you howl. ‘Aruuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu…’
No, perhaps not…
Anyway, I can’t because I am actually a judge in this contest.
I have been chosen on the basis of my undisputed integrity and my fine-upstanding-reputation in the blogging community at large... and also imprisoned.
So my final point on this matter is simply this…
I can be bribed.
No, really, I can.
