VOTE! Our WTF?! Halloween Costume Battle Continues— And It’s Getting Punny!

By: Katie Oldenburg / October 23, 2013
There are so many things wrong with both of these costumes.

By: Katie Oldenburg / October 22, 2013
Both equally repulsive and offensive Halloween costumes, my initial knee-jerk reaction to both the human ring toss costume and sex costume would be to crotch-kick the person wearing them.

Halloween Inspiration Board: Tina Belcher From “Bob’s Burgers”

By: Amelia McDonell-Parry / October 16, 2013
Okay, so I've never actually seen an episode of "Bob's Burgers," but apparently it's popular and the character of Tina Belcher sounds like my spirit animal.

Dear People Who Go Balls Out On Halloween, I'm not referring to people who choose Halloween costumes that expose their testicles.
