Had a Halloween party at work the other day. Was told to come up with something scary.

So I took a “LIBERAL” shirt.

Added a beret with a Mao pin on it.

And a sign for “Occupy Maitland Summit” (our building)

And a “Quotations of Chairman Mao” little red book (to wave)

And let my beard grow ragged.

And what does this give you? The scariest thing most people can imagine – a liberal socialist! SCREEAMMM!

Actually, when we were told to get up and tell everyone who we were and what our costume was, I said, “I’m Robert, and what do you mean, ‘costume’?”
