My Son, the Port-a-Potty

Which of these things is not like the other?
Why, the kid-sized one, of course! (Give this guy some privacy)
(admittedly, the port-a-potty in the port-a-potty is a little trippy to me)
We put the "portable" in port-a-john!
Ben found out the hard way that if you turtle a port-a-potty costume, you are stuck until your dad recovers from his fits of hysterical laughter and puts you to rights again.

That's right, my crazy son decided to be a port-a-potty for Halloween. Let's face it, the only way to top last year's costumes was to go in a completely different direction. This was, I feel compelled to point out, entirely Ben's idea and he's been talking about it for months. Judging by the high demand for Ben's services, I think the desired effect was achieved.

Do they have "Honey Buckets" other places in the country, or is this a Utah phenomenon? Regardless, Honey Bucket has got to be the best port-a-potty brand name ever.

I love all of the details - the cleaning schedule, the "occupied" sign, the logos, the chimney... but the thing that really completes the effect is unarguably the face. Makes a mama so proud(?)

That is the most I've laughed at a post on any blog in a very long time. That last pic of Ben is priceless. Wicked awesome costume! Way to go, once again, Steve! You're a halloween genius!

So creative! This has got to be one of the best costumes ever. I hope my husband doesn't see this link he may just decide to copy cat next year!

This is an amazing costume! I'm looking for pictures and video for a Halloween video project. Would you be interested in licensing one of your photographs? Email me and I can send you more info. Thanks!
