Skeleton Kid

Hopefully I'm not too, too late for The Big Wicked Online Pageant.

I want to say this is me at five or six, which would put it at either 1981 or 1982. I know the Dukes of Hazzard shirt dulls the skeleton effect. Maybe I was some kind of redneck skeleton.

I remember those days. Many a man was self-haunted by his love of "The Dukes of Hazzard."

You're on the pageant roll!

p.s. My verification word is crackin.

Man, that's the coolest verification word I've ever heard of!

Beth said...

It was crackin good — and appropriate for the post!

I love those teeth!! Great shot, you're just a good ole boy, haha. I recently saw Chicago, the musical in NY and guess who played Billy Flynn? Tom Wopat who you're proudly wearing there.

Redneck skeleton? Sweeeeeet.

SamuraiFrog said...

Beth: Ha! Indeed!

Dale: Ah, Wopat.

My mom drew the skeleton on my face with, I think, her eyeliner pencil.

Katie: Maybe I should expand on that concept for another costume.

Those look like an earlier version of Bubba Teeth!! Your Mom must be a good artist, I thought they were really Bubba/Skeleton teeth! Tina

Well, the Dukes of Hazzard always scared me.

Bubs said...

Bubba zombie. You can tell by the teeth, and the obvious hunger for braaaaaaaiiiiins.

Tina: Ha, that's funny!

DGuzman: It was the tight pants. Terrifying.

Bubs: Brains and a Pabst, I imagine. If only I'd been wearing my old Muzzler trucker's cap. I have a picture of me a year or two before with my jack o'lantern with the Muzzler cap on it.
