Sometimes you’ve just got to head to your local junkyard and have a seat in an Austin-Healey. This particular 1962 Sprite’s floor was so rusted-out that I could barely find a place to sit. My co-worker Jason Torchinsky has suggested that I step through the floor and attach some suspenders to the lightweight car and just wear it around as pants. It’s a great idea for a Halloween costume, I think.

If you go with that Halloween costume, you could have someone else dress up as a Tetanus vaccine and make it a group thing.

Also, keep actual tetanus vaccines around, since I bet that thing would be a bit ungainly in a crowded party atmosphere.
