American dreamz


Isn't the weather shocking. Well, not unless you like that sort of thing of course.

The theme for the work Christmas party has just been announced and - orginal! - it's got an American theme. Anything American. So expect lots of Statues of Liberty, James Deans, Grease types, Uncle Sams, JR Ewings, etc. I wonder who'll dare go as Obama?

What, however, should I do?

Any suggestions welcome.

Thanks Squirrel - long time no see. Or perhaps a pinhead? A ginger one?

John Belushi in Animal House. That way you wouldn't need to dress up specially.

Five-Centres said...

Meaning what, exactly, Benj?

'Pachanski', the ice hockey player who got told that non-Pepsi cola was "all he deserved" in a mid-eighties TV ad.

A redneck? Checked shirt and baseball cap, a six pack of Bud in one hand, a shotgun in the other. And only answer to Jim-Bob.

Or you could just colour your neck red.

You could always take a leaf out of my book and go as Homer Simpson. You just have to remember to wash off the yellow face paint before you go to bed that night...

I want something that won't require might effort or make up, so I'm not sure about these. But a redneck type is worth mulling.

Thanks for that cat article TT, and I hope you're bathroom is all you desire.

A beatnik. All you need is black.

How about taking two photos of yourself grinning in a stetson, enlarging them to life-size, holding them either side of your head, and going as the opening titles to Dallas?

Tricky Dicky Richard Nixon, or, PATTON - complete with pearl handled six shooters. Think George C. Scott.

Five-Centres said...

Well there are some great suggestions there. The winner, Phil of course.
