The Rugrats in Costume on Flickr.
The Rugrats’ costumes from last year.
Last week they had their first Halloween party, and I was disappointed to learn they had the only horror-related costumes there. One kid had werewolf gloves, and the same black costume the Squirt (on the right) is wearing, sans the light-up red glasses. The rest were Transformers, boxes of Kleenex and mac & cheese, and siblings as the Three Stooges*.
The eldest child decided to be the villain from Scream this year, and has a bloody knife. The other ladies at the party said “Oh, that must be Mike’s influence.” Of course my wife agreed. Then one of the other moms asked her why she doesn’t get any veto power.
Newsflash, lady: not all wives are as lame as you are. You go ahead and make your little runts Transformers. The rest of us have got some real Halloweenin’ to do.
*Okay, some credit for that one, but c’mon, at least make ‘em zombie Stooges, no?
