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.)

    I’m always trying to get my buddy Brian to do this, only have his sign say, “Get a Brian, Morans!”

  • Fox News Light

    Thats Me! And I am slightly offended..but at least I get an iPhone!

  • V572625694

    Cambrian? Surely you mean “pre-Cambrian,” Jim. And it’s really more of an orogeny than an explosion.

  • sagaderisa

    I was always a fan of the “Obama is a Muslin” signs.

  • user-of-owls

    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.

  • shortsshortsshorts

    I’m going as two-girls-one-cup.

  • queeraselvis v 2.0

    [re=447244]user-of-owls[/re]: Bwahahahaha.

  • Chain Tattoo

    Well, if I can’t go as Dick Cheney in a thong, I think maybe I’ll go as Pedobear.

  • freakishlystrong

    I’m going as a long-form birf certificate, from Kenya.

  • FMA

    I was going to go as Oily Taint, or whatever that person’s name is, but my wife said I didn’t look enough like a transsexual to pull it off.

  • shortsshortsshorts

    [re=447261]freakishlystrong[/re]: I HAVEN’T SEEN ANYTHING TO REFUTE IT.

  • magic titty

    I’m going as The Pubic Option.

    [re=447245]shortsshortsshorts[/re]: That’s excellent.

  • tootsieroll

    Who’s going as skoalrebel?

  • proudgrampa

    Today, we are all Moran Guys.

  • FlownOver

    I’m going to wander around my neighborhood in a Bob Dylan costume and see what happens.

  • bitchincamaro

    [re=447236]Fox News Light[/re]: Is that a real mullet or a Sears & Roebuck mullet?

  • thesheriffisnear

    Sam G, really, I’m laughing on the inside, where it counts.


    [re=447262]FMA[/re]: …but you have an Adam’s apple – so what’s the problem?

  • Doglessliberal

    I have a really great clown costume, so I guess I can just say I am going as Joe Lieberman.

  • El Pinche

    Tommorrow night I will be bright yellow Trucknutz (lefty style).

  • ManchuCandidate

    Needs a Cardinals Shirt. Just saying.

  • Gumboz1953

    [re=447256]Chain Tattoo[/re]: ACK! ZOMG! JEEBUS! What a visual.

    Did I say EEK?

  • RoscoePColtraine

    I’m going as Mary Robinson’s decapitated sateria chicken. So messy.

  • Gumboz1953

    I’m going as an acorn wrapped in Muslin. And I’ll see if I get out of my neighborhood alive.

  • Oily Taintz

    I’ll be the sexy birther queen.

  • Little Old Lady

    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.

  • Little Old Lady

    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.

  • Doglessliberal

    [re=447295]Little Old Lady[/re]: He would think it was an homage, not a parody. Most wingnuts have no sense of humor.

  • Sharkey

    I’m going as “rat stuck in a sidewalk crack”.

  • jetjaguar

    Well, there goes the rest of MY work day. Time to start using my thinking brain.

  • dum librul

    [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?

  • blader

  • marioninnyc

    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.

  • Ducksworthy

    Two of my son’s friends are going as the twin towers. I warned them that the would likely be stoned and they agreed.

  • freakishlystrong

    [re=447317]blader[/re]: No candy for you!11

  • forgracie

    I’m going as that mouth-raper, David Letterman.

  • Fox News Light

    [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.

  • TGY

    Brilliant! It inspires me to go as the word ‘also’ or the phrase ‘i can has’.

  • Smoke Filled Roommate

    [re=447337]TGY[/re]: ‘I can has’ would require a cat costume and a cheezburger.

  • Terry

    [re=447236]Fox News Light[/re]:

    Did you just happen to have that fake p0rn ‘stash laying round the house?

  • Servo

    I’m dressing as Ronald McDonald…in drag.

  • finallyhappy

    I thought the sign was from the Virginia Morans- Jim and Brian

  • PlanetWingnuta

    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.

  • PlanetWingnuta

    oh yeah one more costume idea….can someone go as sarah Palin and have binoculars and the words Russia on them.

  • gjdodger

    I’m going to go as one of Meg McCain’s bosoms. I mean, everybody has seen them, so I’ll get lots of candy.

  • Lazy Media

    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!

  • sarcasticusername

    [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.

  • PlanetWingnuta

    [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/

  • Atheist Nun

    [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.

  • OzoneTom

    I’m going to wear a prison jumpsuit with a huge santorum stain on the seat and go as Bernie Madoff.

  • AnSnarkist

    [re=447239]V572625694[/re]: The Cambrian Explosion had a long-fuse.

  • Darkness

    [re=447236]Fox News Light[/re]: You get an “iPhone” dude. And we are all still curious what that exactly is.

  • Fox News Light

    [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.

  • Darkness

    [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.

  • Fox News Light

    no no..[re=447598]Darkness[/re]: Sarcasm…only one man has a stache that great, and I am paying homage to him tomorrow….

  • S.Luggo

    Cambian Explosion (source): a trailer used (pronounced “yoo-st”) for makin’ Hillbilly Heroin in Cambria County, PA, blowed itself up.

  • Lee Atwater

    I’ll be going as the young girl that Glenn Beck raped and murdered in 1990.

  • Brendan M.

    [re=447670]Lee Atwater[/re]: Ha.

  • kappakid

    Go USA.

  • leaveskoalrebelalone

    mike-l steel works for me…the blingee gansta one.

  • drpangloss

    Jesse Ventura is that you?

    The shirt needs more sweat stains.

  • new complexnegro

    White trash at its finest!

  • rottenart

    [re=447317]blader[/re]: Wow. Cool. I made that pic! Good to see it is serving its viral purpose.

  • WonkAndRoll
  • user-of-owls

    I’m going way retro: Meet Shelley Dracula-Cunt!

  • President X

    Cheney masks are all sold out here in the San Francisco Bay Area – second runner up Big Scary Mask is that of Mrs Clinton, apparently…

  • Go Figure

    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

  • ladymacbeth

    [re=447236]Fox News Light[/re]: well i think this costume rocks and i hope you had very many moran beers raised to your creativity.

    also, irony.
