Fester

I know I've shared some of these photos before, but I don't think I've shared them all in one post. This is me dressed as Uncle Fester in 2004. I wore this costume twice that year. The first was at work and then a couple of days later I wore it to go trick or treating with the kids. This was the only time I shaved head.

A guy I worked with wanted some pictures with a light bulb in my mouth. He got a light bulb from work and gave it to me. He didn't tell me that he just took it out of a socket and that it was still hot. OUCH!

Man was I huge back then. I'm still a big guy, but I've since lost over 50 pounds.

The role really does require a man of some girth, which is what Christopher Lloyd was lacking. You look magnificent!

Congratulations on not just the great costume (you really look the part) but the weight loss! 50 pounds is a big deal.

So good to see you on the Countdown again!
