Jihad for Halloween

I had an appointment with my dermatologist this morning. While I was there, one of the nurses asked if I had decided what I was going to be for Halloween this year. Prior to her asking, I hadn't even thought of it.

"Time" to Inspire
However, when she asked, there just happened to be a copy of the August 30 issue of Time in one of the magazine racks that they keep available for patients while waiting. It was immediately behind her when she asked, which means that I was looking at that magazine cover at the same time that I was looking at her.

This, by the way, was the issue that asked, "Is America Islamophobic?".

It must have been an omen or something because an idea popped into my head and out of my mouth before I could think about it any further. Once I said it, I immediately fell in love with this idea.

"This year, I'm going as the Ground Zero Mosque," I told her.

So, yes - for everyone who reads this blog - I can officially announce that my Halloween costume for 2010 will be the Ground Zero Mosque.

I love this not only because that building is constantly in the news. I also love the fact that it enables me to employ a wide variety of one-liners.

Jihad for Halloween
I look forward to walking up to some random woman at one Halloween party or another and saying, "Hey, baby - let me show you my cooking school."

I very well may get slapped for do so. However, I think the laughs will be worth it.

Yes, I will be the Ground Zero Mosque for Halloween this year.

I also want to announce to everyone who reads this blog that I will declare a jihad on anyone in the Detroit area who steals my costume idea. People outside of southeastern Michigan are welcome to use it. However, I want to be the only Ground Zero Mosque in attendance at any of the Halloween parties that I go to.

OMG, you're crazy!!!! And, if I did that here, in the south, I'd get shot, tarred and feathered, strung up, quartered, and, assuming there was anything left of me, boiled in oil!!!!

Go with God, my friend. He loves children and fools :P

I'm not worried. I can run faster than the average lynch mob.

And, yes, God truly does love children and fools.
