Tomfoolery

I went to a Halloween party tonight, and I dressed as Dr. Gonzo from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas: bad suit (black shoes, white slacks, red sateen shirt, loud brown-and-tan tie, beige jacket), fake mustache, flower-patterned briefcase with "CHICANO POWER" sticker, tea shades, big-ass knife.

Here is what people guessed I was supposed to be:

1. Dwight Schrute from The Office.
2. Herb Tarlek from WKRP in Cincinnati.
3. John Belushi.
4. Guy from the Beastie Boys' "Sabotage" video.*
5. "I thought you were just supposed to be a weird guy."

*: That's actually a pretty good guess.

Well, I was really high, but if I'd immersed myself in the character too much, I would have spent the entire party out of my skull on acid and menacing everyone who came near me with a marlin spike.

Oh, and vomiting.

Oddly enough, that is the second time in one week I was told I resembled Dwight Schrute.

1. Yes. Dr. Gonzo wore loud clothing.

2. Yes. Oscar Zeta Acosta, upon whom Dr. Gonzo was based, carried a flowered briefcase with a "CHICANO POWER" sticker on it.

3. Yes. Dr. Gonzo had a mustache (although Oscar Zeta Acosta did not).

4. I dunno.

5. I dunno.

Didn't I vote for Charles Foster Kane? Then you could have gotten one of those snowglobes where you put your own picture in it and put a picture of Rosebud the sled in it and no one would have guessed wrong but there's always next year.

The sad, sorry truth is that Raoul Duke gets so much play at Halloween that people forget about Dr. Gonzo completely. Having done the Duke, and having been asked "where's your attorney?" might I suggest a tandem deal if you try again?

Also Dwight Schrute? People are maybe seeing the size of the glasses and not much else?
