Of Puppies and Death Metal

Posted By on Mon, Oct 26, 2009 at 4:00 PM

This might just qualify as the strangest — and perhaps coolest — bit of news I have ever received.

Apparently, every year around Halloween, the employees of Burton host a "Howl-O-Ween Doggie Costume Contest" to benefit their Chill youth program. And this year they have enlisted the help of some celebrity judges.

No, no. Not me. Not even a real celebrity like Tom Messner. This year's adjudicators of cute and cuddly are — are you ready? — GWAR.

Yes, that GWAR.

The contest, which takes place tomorrow (Tuesday) at the factory at 2 p.m., is not open to the public to enter. But since it happens in the lobby, right next to the store, it is, for all intents and purposes, open to anyone who wants to watch.
