:yay: Hey everyone! I know that a while ago I asked you all to vote for my cousin on the Regis and Kelly show for that halloween costume. Well, today, I went to the Today Show and won 1st prize with that costume! I was the hit of the show and won a halloween basket filled with candy, spiders, a halloween cd, a NBC pen, and a canon digital camera! I was so excited. I was the boy from A Christmas Story who got his tongue stuck on the pole! Did anyone watch? Tell me what you think!!!

LOLO I saw you... that was a great costume and what a great idea. You had snow coming out of the poll right? I only cought it for a few minutes when they were panning the crowd.

I also loved the 2 girls as Playdough.

that was me! Yeah, snow was coming out of the top! All the hosts loved it and I also got a trophy! I was soo very happy! Yes, the playdough girls were really nice. We talked a bit since we were next to each other during the top 6. They loved my costume and their's was good too! I felt so special. I was a celebrity on the street of NYC! I stopped for pictures and people were literally giving me free things because of winning! It was the funniest halloween morning ever and now I can't wait for trick or treating!

Matt Lauer was great! He kept patting me on the back and saying, "You won!" Him and "Merry" were both awesome, I didn't see Anne much, and Al was sort of distant. Here is my attempt to post a "teaser" pic: :thumbsup2

I caught it when they were awarding the prizes and Matt (I think) told you to take the fake tongue out of your mouth so you could talk to them. Congrats. Funny thing. when I saw the costume i thought "I just voted for a Disers cousin for that same costume. What a copy cat." i didn't put 2 and 2 together until I read the post.

Yep, he did. The whole plan was to make it funny and pretend like I could talk cause I was stuck to the pole. But everything worked out in the end. And thats so funny. :rotfl: Yep, it actually WAS The same costume! ahahah....


To another poster: Where did u see me on the site? in the video??

Thank you to all of you for your great comments! Thank you to the poster who found that picture. That is insane! Also, I dunno if you were able to see this, but, during the beginning parts of the show, I had a little segment with Meredieth and pumped the snow out of the top. I was hoping the camera would catch it but I guess not! Also, when I won, I added that this was my first time never doing a costume contest (ok, it was my second..I won 75$ with the one a few days ago..) because alot of the other contestants asked me if I was the upside down guy from last year. Nope! :rotfl: The camera guys were so nice cause whenever one was on me, I acted out the whole stuck-to-a-pole routine. It was so much fun and an event I won't soon forget! Justt wondering, does anyone have any questions. Ask me anything at all about the contest! Were the other contestants nice? Is Matt short? Whatever you want, I'll answer! :goodvibes

thanks all! Both matt and meredeith were very nice. I onl talked to matt on camera, but chatted a tad with meredeith before the camera went on. She was great and really excited about the costume!That was a fake tongue made out of a rubbery substance. It is hollow so i stuck my real tongue into it. :thumbsup2

that's so funny I rarely watch the Today show anymore(GMA fan)but as I was flipping the channel I saw you! They were quiclly showing the costumed audience and because I loved that movie I cracked up and thought,what a clever idea!

DisneyTones913
11-01-2006, 05:37 PM
:rotfl: i have to get that t-shirt! Haha, I have prizes, pictures,and memories but a t-shirt would complete it! Since it wasnt completely my costume, I only kept the tongue and i was thinking about having the hosts sign it but I decided against it!

Cool costume--I thought it was funny though that they had to tell you to take off the tongue so you could talk. :)

Glad you had an exciting time!

thanks! Yes, it was my first costume contest! Well, actually my second...i won 75$ at a contest the sunday before halloween with that costume. I mainly said that to get the people who said i was the upside down kid from last year off my back! haha! I can't wait to see knock-offs! that actually happenedto my cousin! she won the today show with a costume of the operation guy (working nose and all!) This year, she said that party fair or city or something is selling them! :rotfl:

Yes - I saw you when they first showed you, although I didn't see where you won. Congratulations.

When I was a kid, refrigerators had coils in the top which would ice up. Once I licked the coils and got my tongue stuck to the top of the refrigerator. Luckily the mailman was talking to my mom at the front door and he rushed in to help her get me unstuck (they had to pour water over my tongue). Naturally I have always been able to relate to poor Flick getting his tongue stuck to the flagpole!
