I’m not sure how many people dressed up as Mark Foley this year, but I was one of them. I figured it would be easy, and it was - I just wore a button-up white shirt and called it a night.
As it turns out, though, not many of my friends’ friends follow the news. People would say, “Who are you?” and I’d reply with something inappropriate, like, “I’m Mark Foley. Let’s wrestle in our underpants!”
I was worried about offending people, but I think the responses I got mean we have much more to be worried about.
