“What are you going to be for Halloween?”
“Just … Downton Abbey.”
A man named Rob Cockerham went and one-upped every single one of you who wanted to have a “Downton Abbey” Halloween costume this year. This incredibly detail-oriented man decided to go as the famous building “due to a gross misunderstanding of the term ‘Costume Drama,’” and made the entire thing from nothing but foam board, paper, glue, and a couple of PVC pipes.

I am not the slightest bit surprised that some bag of dicks decided it would be totally hilarious and clever to dress up as Ray Rice for Halloween. And not just any Ray Rice, mind you — but Ray Rice, domestic abuser, complete with a blow-up doll pinned to the ground like Rice’s then-fiance (now wife) Janay Rice. The Reddit user who posted the photo has since deleted his account, but his caption reads: “Ladies were falling for my friends Ray Rice costume.” Speaking of ladies … LADIES, take a good, long, hard look at this chump’s face, commit it to memory, and then avoid at all costs.

Forget the kids— dogs in Halloween costumes are probably the cutest thing ever. This year, TJ Maxx and Marshalls did us a solid and sent over some of the season’s hottest doggy Halloween costumes for our pooches. Amelia’s dog Lucca had three killer costume changes, and the pups of some other Frisky friends also made appearances on the catwalk … er, dogwalk. Check out the gallery of our puppy parade, and be sure to keep your dog’s street cred in check this Halloween by stopping by TJ Maxx and Marshalls for your own canine costume.
It’s a fact — Halloween breeds the best festive television. Of all the holidays that lead TV execs to scream, “WORK THAT IN, DAMNIT!” at their writing staff, October 31st gives sitcoms, crime shows, cartoons and dramas much more creative breathing room than the other biggies. Think about it — no one has to learn an important lesson about family (Christmas), romantic relationships aren’t paramount (Valentine’s Day), and nobody’s got to be thankful for nothin’ (Thanksgiving — clearly). As kids, watching our favorite characters dress up for the big night meant we could officially start counting down the days until we could get so jacked on free candy, we’d nearly barf. This year, why not recapture that magic (minus the hurling) and make 2014’s freakiest Friday your best ever? Start by taking a look at some festive TV favorites that’ll have you flashing right back to your trick-or-treating days. Read more on Ask Men…
Anybody who says they don’t like Halloween is lying. Everybody loves Halloween, including zoo animals. To help get you in the holiday spirit, take a cue from these pumpkin-smashing elephants who classily stomp on them until a younger elephant comes along and just goes totally ham. Kind of like the kid who submerges his entire body in water and thrashes around while bobbing for apples, this elephant smashes the pumpkins and rolls around in them until he knows they’re good and flattened. He’s all like yeahhhh, victory! And then he tries to get up…
