Hey honey, I thought of one

My wife has been disappointed by my unwillingness to think of a Halloween costume. But that might have changed.

Billy Mays III, the son of the late DRTV pitchman, is encouraging people to dress up as his father for Halloween. He's even running a contest for the best lookalike.

Could it work for me? Like Billy, I have a beard, but unfortunately most of the similarities end there. He didn't have the Mr. Magoo-level vision that has kept me in glasses for 20 years — or if he does, he never wore them in his spots. Also, depressing though it is, I have to admit that the great salesman has me beat in scalp coverage.

Then again, Halloween is the day after tomorrow... and I'm running out of options. Hope I still have those khakis.
