"I am the Carrot from HELL!!!" – and other Halloween tales

Take 1 drunk friend + a homemade carrot costume, and that’s what he will yell up and down the streets of NYC on Halloween night.

Carrot from Hell

That was definitely one of the highlights of the night. The bar crawl that we went on wound up being kind of lame, due to poor geographical planning on the part of the planners. (You just don’t set up a bar crawl that starts down in the Village, and then have bars up in Midtown. It’s like, one of the laws of NYC bar crawling.) But regardless, we had fun with a group that included SpongeBob Squarepants (myself), the pirate from SpongeBob (Dave), Matt Foley, a bunny to go along with the carrot (from Hell), Data from Star Trek, Mystery from The Pick Up Artist, JEM, Bonnie (Clyde wasn’t there yet) and more.

Some of my favorite costumes that I saw outside of our group were a lollipop (obviously handmade – it was pretty sweet. Badum-ching!), Mike Rowe from Dirty Jobs, The Blue Barracudas (Legends of the Hidden Temple anyone?), a Royal Tennenbaum, Bi-Curious George, The Ambiguously Gay Duo, a Spoon, and I’m sure some others.

Popular costumes of the night? Obviously Sarah Palin, Wonder Woman, slutty sexy cops, and NYC tourists. That last one? A total cop-out in my opinion. It’s too easy! Interestingly enough Dave was the only male pirate that we saw. Go him! There was one point in the night when Dave was holding this huge lollipop that I got from work, and some girls grabbed him and told him that they, “wanted to lick his lollipop.” Well I wanted to punch them in the mouth, but we can’t all have what we want, can we? It was funny really, because they were also grabbing every guys’ ass that passed by them. Asking for it much?

Oh, and I did win a SpongeBob showdown with some random dude at the first bar we went to. We walked in, and some guy told me that I hands down beat the other guy dressed as SpongeBob. Ten minutes later the other SB came up to me and I informed him of this information, but said that I liked his costume because it was an angry SpongeBob face. He said that then we could still be friends, and took a picture. (Random?) And then as we were discussing the necessary items it takes to be SpongeBob, it was agreed that I was the better of the two, because I had Gary the Snail with me. See below:

Me with Gary… and a beer.

We had to end the night early because Dave was not feeling well from a bad cold, and surprisingly, there was still some candy left at our house when we got home. I definitely would have thought that a teenager or three would have taken the whole bowl for themselves. I mean, we had good shit!!
