wrong wrong wrong

An A for effort maybe, but in every other regard, undoubtedly an F. Times fifty.

I admire that he went the extra mile and combed his hair and shined his shoes for school picture day, but stabbing with a machete? Come on now. Moron.

Maybe it's a safety thing? It's harder to poke yourself in the eye with a plastic machete than a plastic kitchen knife?

Awww. Lil' Mikey! So cute!

ever notice how adding "lil" to something makes it instantly hilarious?!

No? Just me?

I don't recall that Michael ever got around to weilding a machete in the series... maybe he borrowed it from Jason and just wasn't clear on how to use it?

It's about as wrong as that child-sized Jericho Cross costume from "Darkwatch" I stumbled upon a while back...

But I was from that generation where boys aged 9 to 13 would dress as slasher movie characters for Halloween...

(And yes, once I was the Bound Queen from "Thir13en Ghosts" one Halloween...)

Better Jericho than Tala. That would have been wrong on so many levels.

So, is this kid just going to slowly stalk the teenagers dressed as 'slutty whatever' on Halloween?

Hey, I was Freddy Krueger for Halloween when I was eight. And I'm a girl.

Ha, got me. It's Romanian for "The Dragon", but being the vamp fan I am, it was a natural choice. :)

Believe me, I have no problem with kids dressing up as cuckoo crazy movie monster psycho killers for Halloween. I just think they should be taught how to use the equipment so they don't look stupid. Like, Freddy's knife-glove isn't a sock.

Ah, these kids today, they've got no sense of the craft. In my day, you had to sharpen your own pitchfork and practice ten hours a day for months before you were allowed to start impaling horny teenagers.

Hold on a second, have we learned nothing from movies like "The Bad Seed?" We don't need to give these kids pointers, they are going to find a way to slaughter us one way or the other.

Better they remain untrained I say, gives us a fighting chance!
