For #Halloween 🎃 I’m going as a scumbag named Scam Likely 🕺🏼 He was once fired by a laundry company that serviced women’s prisons bcz he got caught sniffing the dirty bedding 😐 At his local bar, he offers #freemustacherides to anyone who’ll listen. Only a few have said yes so far but the list includes his grandma’s bingo partner, an albino yoga instructor from Belarus 🧘🏻‍♂️ and a #CheetoShitler supporter (with blonde hair & spray tan) who demanded he call her Mr. Big Hands 🤔 Scam douses himself with a bottle of Sex Panther cologne hoping to hide his chronic halitosis that reeks of dirty ashtrays boiled with used diapers in a public restroom 🤢 He’s had four teeth removed, his jaw broken by a young law student for “inappropriate touching” 😑 His next project is to upload some “really slick shit” & maybe someone will say “that dude’s a fucking stud” & he’ll be awarded the Ambassadorship to Acapulco (we’ve tried telling him so just forget it) 🙄 And when he gets bored he begins his ritual of cringe that’s just too gross to print 😖 So remember the name #ScamLikely 🕺🏼 It’s gonna be dreadfully delightful 🎃 If you get offended that’s on you. Maybe look in the mirror to see if you’re a creep too 🤨 Otherwise just deal with it. It’s a comedic bit. From now till Halloween ☠️💋 #besafe & #bleesedbe 🙏🏽 🎃 #Boss 🧟‍♂️#Alpha 🙋🏼‍♂️ #King 👑 #OTEP 💀

Just paying homage to the show that fundamentally shaped me for better or worse. Met one of our old friends, MC Pee Pants aka @_mcchris having a trick or treater as a snack (I’m surprised Satan let you back up here). Didn’t see Willie Nelson though. Becoming Carl and shaving my beard was like the episode where he meets the successful family man version of himself and converts him back to his original slob self and gets him to shave his hair off. It felt good to release my inner slob though. #aquateenhungerforce #aquateenforever #mcpeepants #frylock #mastershake #dewey #vanessa #612warfavenue #nexttothegentlemensclub #halloween #newjersey @careymeans @eyeofthesnyder @_mcchris @adultswim @aquateenforever
