Editorial | The top 10 scariest things we saw on Halloween
Despite the unusually hot weather and mid-term burnout, Halloween is still here. Whether you’re at an uncomfortably crowded party or at home watching Halloweentown for the 42nd time, there was definitely a bit of dread in the air this weekend.
Halloween in 2021 can be a scary time. The COVID-19 pandemic has not clear end in sight and our country is becoming more and more polarized every day. The most terrifying part of Halloween this year, however, was Ted Lasso of Mitt Romney and Kyrsten Sinema disguises – these send a chill down your spine. On top of that, here are the scariest things we’ve seen this Halloween weekend.
The one this weekend devastating loss vs. Miami has to be one of the scariest things we’ve seen this Halloween. These umpires must have been possessed by the ghosts of past bad umpires to make such unfair appeals.
Soaring prices on Uber
There is nothing scarier than trying to get an Uber to go to a Halloween party five minutes away and see an $ 80 price tag. At least getting frostbite while walking in a skimpy costume is free!
People are not getting your Halloween costume
Whether it’s a really obscure character or a half-silly costume, the scariest part of Halloween is having to explain your costume over and over to drunk people who just don’t get it.
Go to Spirit Halloween on October 30
With the queue around the block and the costumes clean, the Halloween store on Halloween eve looks like a zombie apocalypse. The prices for a cheap piece of fabric that you wear for a night have to be the scariest part.
Getting broken up after buying a couple’s costume
There is nothing more haunting than seeing a Jim without his Pam or a crying peanut butter without his jelly. The ghost of past relationships would be a more appropriate costume for anyone with a heartbroken this Halloween.
Large groups of people hunting in South O
The ominous shadows that appear on the street as people walk down Semple in search of parties are truly spooky. They’re like vampires looking for blood – or maybe they’re just college students looking for free alcohol.
Body fluids on the street
The lack of social awareness of people on Halloween is staggering. People will throw up in a bush or pee in someone’s backyard like monsters. Really haunting.
Queues at Antoon and Frenchi
After a Halloween party, it seems like everyone and their mom want greasy food, but the long lines winding around the block make us shiver. Is a 2 a.m. sandwich worth it?
Halloween being a Sunday means the potential for four hangovers this weekend, something that really shivers down your spine. Having your head tilted over the toilet at a Halloween party while “Monster Mash” faintly plays in the background is certainly a cursed memory many have had this weekend.
All homework to do after Halloween
Halloween really puts the “scary” in Sunday scares. This pile of homework you haven’t touched since Wednesday haunts every Pitt student.
