Five Terrible Food-Themed Halloween Costumes

Posted By on Tue, Oct 13, 2009 at 1:35 PM

Halloween has become the Irreverent Olympics, in which everyone tries to out-whimsy each other with unexpected costumes. Oftentimes, partiers look to the pantry for inspiration. Sometimes food-themed costumes go right, and sometimes they go very, very wrong.

1. Wonder Bread Baby

Congratulations. Your baby looks like a jerk. Also, it's barely food and is worth 79 calories a slice.

2. Ham
If you have to label your costume so people know what you are, you've made a mistake.

*As one of our readers so kindly pointed out, this is actually a reference to the Harper Lee book To Kill a Mockingbird in which the main character, Scout, plays a ham in the school play. Ok, we admit it. We haven't read To Kill a Mockingbird since sixth grade. But we're leaving this entry because Scout was wearing a terrible ham costume, thus making her a terrible food costume O.G.

3. Burger

worse than wearing a burger wreath around your genitals? Wearing it

with a Hawaiian shirt, Birkenstocks, and novelty sunglasses. This

costume would embarrass Carrot Top.

4. Bacon

Why don't you just dress up like a unicorn jumping the shark? Singing "Chocolate Rain." Knitting a cupcake.

5. The Double Entendre

Because subtlety is overrated.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
