Hiya all. Going to a fancy dress party soon,going as Super Mario. My 20 year old daughter cannot think of any ideas that will look o:k and not cost a fortune. So if you have had a good idea your self and would like to pass it on ........ feel free.
I can't help you but this reminds me of an old joke.
A very parsimonious man, with a wooden leg, wanted a costume for the fancy dress party he was invited to. At the fancy dress hire shop he was offered a Long John Silver outfit, complete with stuffed parrot for the shoulder, for £80. He turned it down “far too expensive, have you anything cheaper?” The assistant offered him a Crimean War soldier’s uniform, with fake bloodied bandages and rows of medals for £50. He turned it down “far too expensive, have you anything cheaper?” The assistant, who by now was getting a little exasperated, offered him a bundle of old rags, a pair of old boots and a battered old hat “ You could go as a Tramp, only £20. He turned it down “far too expensive, have you anything cheaper?”
“Just a moment Sir” and the assistant disappeared into the back room coming back with a pot of treacle. “For two quid you can shove your wooden leg up your **** , pour the treacle over your head and go as a ******* Toffee Apple”
