It's a few days old,. but I just found this...

From The Hill:

Here are several options that can be added to your basic suit, glasses and senator’s pin. This system will allow dozens of Larry Craigs to coexist at one party without losing their individuality.

  • Sport a large sign that reads “NOT GAY”
  • Carry a roll of toilet paper and keep a square taped to your shoe
  • Construct a bathroom stall around you, held up by suspenders (much like a kissing booth)
  • Carry a boarding pass, Minneapolis to Washington
  • Attach a knife handle to your back, identified by the letters “GOP”
  • Wear tap shoes
  • Cling to a giant Senate seal (you can occasionally mention that you’re about to let go, but then don’t)
  • Show up with a friend wearing a police badge around his neck.

This is good stuff - I was wondering what I'd go as for Halloween!

I'm thinking I may go as Donnie McClurkin. For obvious reasons (me being Black), the Larry Craig thing wouldn't work for me.

I sent the story and comments to my wife a bit ago when she was in need of a giggle. My fav was the Senate seal one.

Michael -- you'll need a gaggle of fawning church ladies in denial (double duty for the Bag Ladies, perhaps???) -- and one hot ex-stud following behind you spilling beans.

I will be doing extensive research to the "hot ex-stud," but the fawning church ladies will have to find me on their own. I will also probably have to "gay it up" a little more. You know how femme all those ex-gays are.

Absolutely hilarious, Mike. Thanks for pointing it out. :)
