If you aren’t following Patrick Monahan (@pattymo) on Twitter, you’re missing out on some actual fun on the platform. It’s not all outrage, browbeating, and trolling. There some actual fun to be had. Now he’s not the lead singer of Train, though I’m certain he and many others would jump at the opportunity, but he is keen on entertainment. Take the latest “investigation” that he and several other Twitter followers undertook involved a look at this year’s Halloween costume offerings.
There are plenty of offenders out there for the “worst” costume offered this season. Disney could’ve easily won with its Moana costume after many claimed it was pretty offensive to Pacific Islanders, something that forced Disney to pull the costume and issue a statement:
“The team behind Moana has taken great care to respect the cultures of the Pacific Islands that inspired the film, and we regret that the Maui costume has offended some,”
Or maybe it’s the Sexy Trump and Sexy Hillary Clinton costumes being offered in line with the other “sexy” costumes every other year. You can currently go to your next Halloween party as Donna T. Rumpshaker if you really wanted to — and had $70 bucks to spend.
But the true king, as evidenced by the Twitter hijinks earlier today, has got to be the variety that are offered for Jared Leto’s version of The Joker from Suicide Squad:
Now if you go search around Party City or other costume shops, you’ll see the Variety of offerings for Leto’s Joker and each one seems to be more misguided than the last. But where that fails and the models for the costumes have likely lost their will to live, the real heroes on Twitter have plenty of fodder for jokes:
And this one isn’t technically a costume, but there’s layers here. Layers upon layers upon layers, drizzled with donkey sauce.
Hard to top these costumes when it comes to worst of the season, but you could always hunt down another one. They are naturally terrible, so it’s easy. As for Monahan, you can usually catch him doing stand up in New York or dicking around on Twitter, threatening to delete pictures and frame Ted Cruz for crimes.
