T-Minus One Week until Halloween

Thanks to Joanne, the allure of the pirate, it falters in the face of these costumes. It’s one week until Halloween, and time for a little game I like to call, ¿Quién es más faygele?

This Guy.

That Guy.

That Other Guy.


Yarr! Take your pick!

    The link to That Other Guy didn’t work.  I really don’t want to miss any WTFery!

    So far That Guy is in the lead, but I can’t in conscience vote without seeing That Other Guy.

    Dude looks kinda angry, like he picked the costume just so someone’ll say something and he has a reason to fight.

    Hard to choose without a glimpse of man-titty.  And, yeah, That Other Guy done disappeared.  Maybe he’s a paranormal pirate.

    For some reason, This Guy (#1) makes me think, “My name is Inigo Montoya.  You killed my father.  Prepare to die.”

    This Guy looks like Louise XIV or some other mamby-pamby dead French king, but at least he’s trying.  The Other Guy is AWOL, so no idea, and Dude’s patch is enough to make him manly.  Or at least manlier.  So That Guy is my pick.  He looks like he’s more apt to slap you with the flat of the sword as a form of foreplay than actually use the thing.

    YES!!! Or a really, really wonky Muskateer. (sp)

    And Dude does at least look straight. That guy looks like a gay Johnny Depp and that is just wrong. Even with all the weird mannerisms Jack Sparrow is still straight. Or at least as straight as you can be with all the rum he drinks.

    Damn, was That Other Guy in an Adam costume or something, that Amazon removed him?

    I’ll take Dude. He looks like he’d give me a good time before he snapped my neck and made a pair of pants out of my skin.

    This Guy looks like Yanni.  For serious.

    Uh-uh, no WAY is “dude” straight! Anyone with a Captain Crayon Beard like that is, at least, swimming in both ponds. (Um, I just made that metaphor up).

    If we were picking which one we’d most likely leave a Halloween party with and regret when the light of Nov 1st hits, I’d say “That Other Guy;” at least he has a bit of man titty peeking out, and the costume doesn’t look like it came right off of a rack at Kmart. Though I suppose a straight man would be more apt to buy a Kmart costume.

    But for sheer “mas faygele” ?
    #2 – That Guy, all the way. The face he’s making alone looks as if he’s getting a bit of somethin’ aft…or is if fore?

    The husband tells me that pirate costumes, are, by definition, pretty gay, so he says you need to include an all of the above.

    Ooo, deffinately “Dude”. :D

    I honestly think the third one doesn’t want to be seen by us. xD

    That Guy, totally. Just look at the cleverly positions scimitar (or whatever it is he’s holding)

    That other guy is way better than Dude. More mystery.

    Not voting, because I don’t believe polls like this are a gay-friendly thing.

    Dude looks like a lady.  (Couldn’t help it—he got my vote).

    But The Guy … c’mon—he just looks like a bad impersonation
    of Tony Orlando sans Dawn.

    Dude looks like he wants to kill a biatch.

    This Guy doesn’t even look like a pirate!! *lmao*

    I’ll vote for Dude. The red sash did me in.

    …and maybe these pirate costumes aren’t meant for straight guys, or guys obsessed with proving straightness through costumes on a day that’s meant to be about play and being someone you’re not. Seriously homophobic poll here, guys.

    The worst part is, I have my outfit picked out for Halloween, been planning it and picking up stuff for it for months.  Guess what it is?

    You get two guesses, and “a badger” is not one of them.

    I chose That Other Guy…cause I’d love to see someone dressed as a 404 error page!  :)

    Is it just me or did one of them look like Balki, the immigrant cousin from that old show ‘Perfect Strangers’?  Of course, I’ve just dated myself by saying so….

    Ok, for all who are bitching about the “homophobic” edge here – fall off the high horse please! First, anyone who knows the SB’s knows they have no issues with sexual preference, and, like SouthPark, can poke fun at one and all with equality.

    I love me a person who can poke fun at themselves and make silly with the stereotypes (whatever that may be: men who enjoy dress-up, aging single female with too many cats, exhausted Mom with messy hair and two different shoes on, etc) it shows a strength of character and a confidence in one’s own identity.

    To get all, “Gasp! I’m not playing with you!” Because the SB’s aren’t afraid to be un-pc in a bit of good natured fun, well, enjoy your view from Planet High and Mighty.

    You just described me on a good day.  A good hair day.

    I echo everything you said, and think you said it very well.

    With that, I’ll still go with Dude Looks Like A Lady.  (smile)

    I never thought I’d see a Laurie Anderson reference combined so neatly with a shtickele of Yiddish.  Brava!

    That Guy looks like he’s about to chop off his man junk.

    My seven year old is going as a pirate for Halloween.  He looks far meaner than any of THOSE GUYS.
