I recently saw this Halloween costume for sale and a potentially awkward scenario came to mind:
Scene: Halloween night, in a crowded bar/nightclub
Drunk Woman: “What the hell are you supposed to be?! Are you like a Zombie with Curtains or a Dead Conquistador or something?”
Ghost Ship: “I’m a Ghost Ship”
Drunk Woman: “Oh . . . like a Ghost Pirate in that Johnny Depp movie!”
Ghost Ship: “No. I’m like the boat in that movie.”
Drunk Woman: “You’re a boat . . . then why do you have a face?”
“It’s my ghost part.”
“It’s called ‘Anthropomorphic Representation’.”
“Because I’m a ghost also and this is my skull.”
“I’m a personification of a Ghost Ship.”
“Uhh . . . I don’t know.”
Drunk Woman: “Huh?!?!”
Drunk Woman: “Hey, my friend Melissa is going as a Sexy Pirate. Can she ride on your shoulders?”
The negative aspects of dressing up as a Ghost Ship:
â€¢Guys in pirate costumes may try to board you, rob you, and then set you on fire in the middle of the ocean.
â€¢The entire night people will ask you what the hell you’re supposed to be.
â€¢’Walking your plank’ jokes get old.
â€¢A group of meddling kids might try to disrobe you in an attempt to prove that you’re an underhanded amusement park owner.
â€¢Guys in pirate costumes may try to ’swab your poopdeck.’
