6 Best Ways To Use A Michael Vick Mask This Halloween

While searching for great costumes for pets this Halloween, I ran across a download of a full-size Michael Vick mask.  With it was a recommendation that the "spooky" mask would make a simple Halloween costume when combined with a "bloody old jersey and a dog leash to accompany..."  Not a bad idea, I suppose.  But there are more ways that animal lovers, especially dog lovers, can use this down-loadable mask for Trick or Treat... Here are Lady Bee's 5 top picks.

Number 6 Best Use For Michael Vick Masks: Attach Michael Vick Masks To Emails Addressed To Philadelphia Eagles' Sponsors

 

 

Demonstrate your concern about Michael Vick's appointment to the Philadelphia Eagles by boycotting all Eagles televised games --no matter who they are playing!  Boycott all Eagles corporate sponsors by not buying their products or services.  Taco Bell is a sponsor!  Taco Bell, that had that cute little Gidget advertising them for years!  What would Gidget have thought about her company sponsoring Michael Vick?

 

Gidget, the former mascot for Taco Bell, passed away 7/22/09 at age 15.Gidget, the former mascot for Taco Bell, passed away 7/22/09 at age 15.

 

As a "courtesy," notify the Philadelphia Eagle sponsors and the Eagles of your boycotts by dropping them an email with the Michael Vick mask attached.  Oh, and don't forget to email a mask to the broadcasters of the Eagle games. They'll get the picture!

Here's a good list of sponsors from For Your Entertainment and another one from PetSit USA.

 

 

Number 5 Best Use For Michael Vick Masks:  Paste Michael Vick Masks On Dog Catcher Trucks And Vans

 

 

Everyone knows that dogs can't read, and dog catchers use that knowledge to trick dogs so that they are unaware of a catcher's truck in the area.  Make dog catching fair.  Paste Michael Vick masks on the trucks and vans of dog catchers, so that dogs can make a run for it!

 

 

 

Number 4 Best Use For Michael Vick Mask:  Use The Mask As A Dart Board

 

 

Have a Darts Party on Halloween!  Costumed or not, your guests can celebrate the occasion with a few beers and a game of darts with the Vick mask as a target.  Winners should be given Michael Vick toys for their dogs to chew!  (You can purchase them from Amazon.com.)

 

 

Number 3 Best Use For Michael Vick Masks:  Print The Masks On Sticky Vinyl To Cover All Fire Hydrants

 

 

 

Dogs love to pee on fire hydrants, but they'll give the Michael Vick-covered fire hydrants their very best shots.  Cover all the fire hydrants in town, make a map of where they are, and send it to all the dog owners you know.  Have a contest to see how many hydrants the dogs hit!

 

 

Number 2 Best Use For Michael Vick Masks:  Make Michael Vick Masks Into Decals For Poison Bottles

 

 

Dogs just don't get the skull and crossbones images on bottles, but you can be sure that they know it's poison if Michael Vick's face is on the bottle. 

 

Number 1 Best Use For Michael Vick's Masks:  (drum-roll please!)  Stick Them On The Butts of All Philadelphia Eagles Players And LET THE DOGS OUT!

This is so f*&^ed up

How the hell are you gonna make a dog piss on Michael Vick's face like hasn't paid his debt to society already. No one ever said that Vick fought dogs himself, he was barely even at the house in Virginia. Its one thing to make a joke, but this is way to much.

You MUST be kidding, "Anonymous"

What rock are you living under??? Vick himself admitted to participating in the dogfighting. He even admitted to the hands-on torture and killing of the dogs. He ADMITTED to the drowning, electrocution, suffocation, hanging and beating of dogs who didn't perform up to his standards in the fighting ring. Read the court documents before you spout off about something you obviously know absolutely nothing about. Vick is a monster and didn't deserve a "second chance" to be a hero and have a privileged job in the NFL.

Hi Boo!

Your Boo is precious!  Thank you Boo's owner for sending us her picture.  And thank you for your comments. 

Best Use #5 (Boycotting the televised games and the sponsor's products) is the strongest statement that we can make as animal lovers.  Help your friends to participate by collecting the email addresses of the sponsors and the network and sending them out.

I read an article the other day that there was only a small negative reaction to Vick joining the Eagles.  Though I doubt that the number was "small," we can all make it a bigger negative reaction with our wallets.
