What You Need for a Costume:
- Skull mask
- Barrel (approximately 55 gallons), stenciled with "Property of Army" and an 800 phone number in case of emergency
- Black garbage bags, cut and made into a shirt and pants
- Maple syrup, about 10 gallons' worth
- Black food coloring to turn the syrup black, which is then poured liberally over your body
How to Act*: Limp around, wobbling as if you haven't used your legs for 20 years (because you haven't). Speak in brief, drawn-out sentences with short words, like Frankenstein or The Hulk. Limit your conversation to brains and how much you crave them. For example, "Braaaaaiiiinnnsss...", "Send more brains" or "For love of God, where brains?"
*For entertainment purposes. Use common sense, people.
