Operative “Sam G.” sends us this gritty look at his “political Halloween costume,” of the popular Internet picture that launched 1,000 ships. His Internet friends will get it! If you like the idea of dressing as a wingnut Internet picture, this is your year!

In 2008, “Moran Guy” was still the standard-bearer for wingnut Internet pictures — dare we call it a monopoly? But 2009 has seen a veritable Cambrian explosion of wingnut Internet pictures, with the rise of Teabaggers and health care shouters and Glenn Beck’s 9/12 Revue. So show off your masterful grasp of ironic racism to your friends with a wingnut Internet picture costume! (They’ll always get the joke, promise.)

  1. I’m dressing up as a train, my wife’s going as a cow, her friend has a dog costume. And of course, the black guy next door is gonna be the Negro.

  2. I only wish the original guy could see this “costume”! Do you ever wonder if he is aware of what a meme/joke he became? Well, guess it isn’t the *worst* way to go viral.

  3. For myself, I would like to be Joe Lieberman, but I don’t have any idea of how to make an asshole costume.
    Guess you just have to be born that way.

  4. [re=447299]Little Old Lady[/re]: Just make a cardboard cutout of our Wonkett’s “Baucus caucus” demon pic and paste Droopy Dog’s head on it. Insta-Lieberman.

    Now how the hell do I make a panniculus costume?

  5. Does Mark Moran know about this? Because he’s a pretty angry guy and I think he’s gonna beat the crap outta this guy when he finds out.

  6. [re=447272]bitchincamaro[/re]: Dollar General actually..only itches a little.

    [re=447273]thesheriffisnear[/re]: Internet snark is hurtful to my feelings and Wonkette is not the place for it.

  7. ok i wish i had thought of policial costumes…

    someone can go as a dinosaur and put GNoNosauras no one would get it out right but would get discussion.

    Can someone go as Joe the plumber complete with buttcrack and no tools but with the words TAX LIEN on the back.

    go as a Cyndi McCain with headache pills and the words “everything is funny to you wonket!” on the back…hi Cyndi if yer readin’.

    of course i will bust a gut if anyone goes as Backwards B girl.

    and there has to be someone willing to go as a teabagger with fake nuts instead of teabags on their face.

  8. I’m wearing a Victorian dress over suit trousers and a man’s shirt, a fake mustache and an old-timey life preserver that says SS Titanic, to zing those losers who failed to live up to the “women and children first” code. Topical!

  9. [re=447402]PlanetWingnuta[/re]: I went as Backwards B girl last year.

    someone should really go as st. ronnie’s corpse, though i’m not sure how you’d properly portray all the GOP tongues fellating him.

  10. [re=447477]sarcasticusername[/re]: Oh there are tounge props ive seen in costume stores. just gonna be a pain in the butt to write all those GOP names though….

    o/ i aint no backwards B girl…i aint no backwards B girl o/

  11. [re=447477]sarcasticusername[/re]: Dress as Zombie Ronnie Raygun, then attach like 100+ rubber leeches to the suit, each with a little picture of some random GOP loser for the face. Be sure to get the placement right, you want your David Vitter types down sniffing around Reagan’s ass, while your Karl Rove types are desperately trying to suck the remainder of Zombie Reagan’s rotted brains out of his oozing skull.

  12. [re=447359]Terry[/re]: Nope..this stache is all mine.

    Also, if this turns out to be my 15 minutes of fame I am going to be thoroughly pissed.

  13. [re=447593]Fox News Light[/re]: I’m sorry, you’re claiming that’s you’re real mustache? If I were your family, I know what I’d be getting you for Christmas. But great costume, nevertheless. Less of a heroic gesture to learn that groucho marx caterpillar isn’t glued on, tho.

  14. Good costume:
    swim googles, snorkel, draped in black with the biggest sign attached reading “Drowing in debt” covered all over with smaller signs of why….lost my job, health problems, no insurance, etc. etc.

    But I myself embraced the 40th anniversary of Woodstock– Head to toe Tie dye, bandana & a WOODSTOCK OR BUST sign
