Thank you for taking the time to answer my question Irk ! However, I couldn't help but notice that you skipped over the part about trolls dressing up for Halloween. So, do they? BTW, I have seen little kids in the neighborhood dressed up as trolls, carrying their troll dolls. Or was that you ?
I'm touched. (Not in a creepy Priest way, more of an affair with your super hot English teacher kinda way.) Irk has seen fit to recognize my (Kevin) Bacon costume. I declare giddiness. Thank you Irk (and your ever so creative friend.)
Am I the only one who heard Irk crying out desperately for someone to dress as Irk this Halloween? There was a notable bitterness in the "nobody dresses like a troll." My heart hurts for him a little.
But I'm sure one or more of the more creative among you are already on this. Hell, meh should offer a cheap Irk costume or mask as another low-cost advertisement (to go with our t-shirts).
Unsuspecting citizen: "What, what the fuck are you supposed to be?"
Mehtizen: "Duh. I'm Irk, the Meh spokestroll."
You might be thinking that maybe the unsuspecting citizen then asks "What's Meh?" or "WTF's a spokestroll?" More likely they'd ask, "Have you been taking your meds?" Or, really, they'd probably just walk away vowing never to speak with you again. Or, if you're lucky, mock mercilessly. Anyway, advertising/proselytizing might occur. Or fun.
Somebody make this happen, damnit. I've articulated the idea; my work here is done.
@joelmw I had mentioned on another thread a while back that I'd love to dress as Irk, or even Glen. Besides time, I think the biggest drawback for me is exactly what you referenced - the lack of recognition. But I kind of feel like I owe Irk something now for mentioning my Kevin Bacon (except with actual bacon) costume.
@Cinoclav You do owe Irk something. And dressing up as herm is perhaps the least offensive response he deserves. Which is not to say that it wouldn't (or shouldn't) be offensive. And, c'mon, isn't people being hopelessly confused the better part of human interaction? It is for me. Or maybe that's just a coping mechanism . . .
@joelmw Actually, dressing in a costume that people recognize and love (like bacon), and spending my time taking pictures with women in slutty Halloween outfits tends to feed my ego. If I dressed as Irk, the only people wanting a picture with me would be... you guys.
