I can’t decide what to be for Halloween.
Bernie Madoff? Allen Stanford? Or Hank Paulson?
How about dressing up as Goldman Sachs?
Rolling Stone writer Matt Taibbi called Goldman Sachs, “a great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity, relentlessly jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money.”
I could do that for one night.
I could also stick mortgage paper to myself with some of that glowing green slime and be toxic debt.
Billy Mays, the TV pitchman who died at 50 in June, is trying to make a comeback this Halloween. His son is offering a prize this year to the best Billy Mays costume. Click here for the details.
“It is one of the easiest costumers of all time to put together. (Beard, blue, button-down, khakis, prop product, etc.),” writes Billy Mays III on his website. “There will no doubt be a multitude of people dressed as Billy Mays (or zombie Billy Mays).”
First Prize: “One of the final autographed Billy Mays pictures, Pitchmen Season 1 DVD, tub of Oxi-Clean, pack of Mighty Putty, and a whole bunch of stickers.”
I think I’d rather be a Zombie Bank.
