An idea with no legs

Craigslist not only the place to go to let the world know about the attractive girl you didn’t talk to on the bus… it’s also, apparently, where you go to recruit people to function as part of your slightly bizarre Halloween costume.

This guy should get points for trying. Maybe. Here’s a bigger version of that picture.

So this might seem strange and really offensive to some but hopefully someone will reply. I have always loved the scene in Empire Strikes Back where Chewbacca has to carry around a half reconstructed C3PO in a backpack because he hasn’t reattached his lower body yet. For Halloween I would love to dress up like this. I’m big enough and strong enough to pull off both the Chewbacca look and carry around a lot of weight for the night. So I’m looking for a double amputee (someone missing both legs – preferably at the hip) to accompany me as C3PO for the evening. We should meet ahead of time to work out the backpack/harness system. There are a few parties that I want to attend and I think we will be the hit of any event we attend. Anyone up for this?


Sometimes people manage to find a superb silver lining to situations I can’t imagine dealing with. Like turning a lost arm into this…

From here – but there are some more disturbing images there… so be warned.
