As it turned out, the LJ-World was mostly wrong: Larryville was not razed to the ground, no one burned the Eldridge down (again), and as best as we can tell there was only one minor stabbing in the student ghetto, in which a "student sustained a non-life-threatening laceration to his arm" by a suspect "dressed in a 'Joe Dirt'-style costume. The suspect was wearing a long mullet-style wig with painted-on facial hair. He was also said to be wearing a long-sleeve red flannel shirt. The suspect was last seen heading north from the location on Ohio" (LJ-World).
Chip: "How do they know it was a costume? Maybe it was just a Topekan, or someone from Mizzou or K-State?"
Richard: "Or Forttt Scottt?"
Chip: "Hey, fuck you!"
We'll leave you with this picture from the LJ-World of a man "dressed as the painting "The Son of Man" by Rene Magritte during the Downtown Lawrence Trick-or-Treat event."
Chip: "This dude understands that art is scary!"
