Best Costume: 2005

Living in suburbia means dozens of kids stop by for trick-or-treating on Halloween night. At the end of the evening, I like to decide who had the best costume. This year it was an older kid, about 15 years of age. He wore a Michael Meyers mask (from the movie Halloween, not Wayne's World), a long black wig, and an upside-down KFC bucket on his head. Just to be sure, I asked him who he was. He replied, "I'm Buckethead, from Guns & Roses." I slipped him a few extra Hershey bars as he went on his way.

If you want to learn more about Buckethead, I suggest these excellent pieces by Saint Paul at Fraters.

UPDATE: Life is a lattice of coincidence. At Buckethead's official website, he has a tribute posted to our late friend Ol' Dirty Bastard.

The next Vikings coach should be Wilt Chamberlain; at least with him they will get 20,000 strippers/hookers.

So, are ODB's kids called Young Dirty Bastards?
