Halloween Party Tip of the Day

Here's an idea for a killer costume party. Everyone comes dressed as a famous saying/idioms. Such as " Two P's in iPod " or "Back seat driver". You could narrow it down a bit and say everyone has to dress like a famous movie line. For example you could dress as an " ORANGE MOCHA FRAPPUCCINO " a you-are-here mall map for "You Had Me at Hello". If you live in California version do the Arnold Schwarzenegger version. Examples: " I'll be Bach " or the "Hasta la Visa, Baby". How can dressing up in a diaper cutting up credit cards not be fun?

"Mechanically Separated Chicken, Partially Defatted Beef Fatty Tissue, Partially Defatted Pork Fatty Tissue." Yum! More great canned meat products are showcased on this page
