Count Pop and the Prehistoric Pumpkin Patch!
by:
-RoG-

If you go to "Party City" during the last week of October in search of a Halloween costume, you'll quickly discover that it turns into a war zone. People fighting, lost children crying out for their parents, dogs eating the flesh of those who died in the hunt for a costume... and all that's just in the parking lot! If you dare to enter the store, you'll come face-to-face with huge lines and a collection of costumes so poor that you'll probably opt to just put a ribbon on your head and say, "Hello, I'm dressed as a crappy present, now give me some candy because I went through HELL to get this ribbon!"

Now if you're like me, you prefer to avoid the hordes of Halloween hooligans and get your costume shopping done early. Not only do you have your pick of all the great costumes and accessories, but you also get to check out the boxes of total crap that didn't sell last year.

What lurks within these boxes of cheap crap?

That's right, I'm talking about the "$5.00 BEWARE!" boxes! I've made it a tradition to visit these stores early every year in order to seek out the worst costumes I could possibly find. Last year, it was the infamous Jason X costume. That was quite a crappy costume to outdo. Could I possibly find something that was actually worse!?

BEWARE! WHY? BECAUSE 5 BUX IS 5 BUX TOO MANY FOR MOST OF THE CRAP IN HERE

I approached the "$5.00 BEWARE!" boxes and started shuffling through all of the crappy costumes and loose bits that were haphazardly thrown in them. There were about 10 of those stupid masks that make your head look like a baseball. While I'm sure those are really amusing to every 40-year-old ex-jock who now works in a carpet sales store, they're completely uninteresting to a guy like me. I needed something more.

MISTER AND MISS POTATOHEAD?
POTATO PIRATES!?

Wow, I thought I might've found a winner with these masks. Two pirate masks that made absolutely no sense whatsoever. The faces actually looked like real potatoes! Granted, I don't recall any tales of potatoes sailing the high seas and looting any vessels that would dare cross their path, but before this year I had never seen such a bunch of blatantly flamboyant pirates either. So I guess anything's possible.

While those potato pirate masks were indeed some pretty horrible finds, they weren't full costumes, and that's what I really wanted. I wanted the complete package. Something that would scream to the world, "BEHOLD! THIS IS THE ABSOLUTE WORST MODERN HALLOWEEN COSTUME ON EARTH!"

My friends... I am happy to report that I did indeed find that costume:

HORRIBLY BEAUTIFUL!
COUNT POP!

HOLY SHIT! Just look at it! If that isn't perfection of the awful, I don't know what is! It's a vampire cross-bred with some Andy Warhol styled artwork to create one hell of a craptastic costume! It even says BITE ME on the sleeve for chrissakes! And will you just look at that AMAZING pose the guy is making on the bag!? It's beautiful!

All this for 5 bux? SIGN ME UP!

THEY'RE A BITCH TO PEEL OFF YOUR FACE!

I took it home and was immediately impressed with the plastic hairdo. Not only did it look absolutely ridiculous, but the side burns actually had sticky pads on the inside of them just to make sure they stayed glued to your face. What kind of fool would wear such a costume? What kind of madman would do such a thing? WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WOULD EVEN CONSIDER BEING ASSOCIATED WITH THIS CURSED COSTUME!?

Hmm, that would be me.

LET THE REVOLUTION BEGIN!

Not only was I more than willing to walk around in public as "The first person to ever actually buy and wear the Count Pop" costume, but I was willing to embarrass the hell out of my good pal Protoclown while I did it. You see, normally there's no way he would've come along with me if I was going to be pulling this kind of crap, but this time I didn't let him know until it was too late. Protoclown needed a ride, which I agreed to give him, but on our way to his destination, I pulled the car over for a quick pit stop and it went something like this...

Protoclown: "Uh RoG, what are we stopping at this Pumpkin Patch for?"

RoG: "One sec, I need to go into the trunk and get something..."

Protoclown: "What the hell are you doing back there? Hurry up! It's painful enough sitting in this car and listening to your goddamned Huey Louis CD AGAIN as it is!

RoG (emerging in costume): "TA DA!"

Protoclown: "WHAT IN THE FUCK!?!?!?!?!?!?"

RoG: "Congrats! You've just been elected to accompany COUNT POP on an all-out fun tour of the craziest pumpkin patch in town!"

Protoclown: "Sweet christ no... I should've walked."

And so it began... Count Pop was about to take the pumpkin-picking world by storm!
