The email I got from my father:
Not sure if this qualifies, but - in the category of poor taste --> In the late 1950's my best friend Bryan and I came up with the brilliant idea of costuming Bryan as Adolph Hitler and me as a US Army officer. I carried a toy pistol which I pointed a him every time we went up to a door for treats. Needless to say the reaction was mixed - at best.
Well done, Admiral! You get most f'd up costume story by a country mile!
