This terrified-horse mask has been getting around the internet for quite a while, whether you’re scaring roommates or just watching Google Streetview Car drive by. Turns out, it’s a $30 piece of amazing that’s available from Amazon — and the user-contributed photos are awesome beyond words. Go look at the Amazon slideshow, because rather than stealing an Amazon photo I give you this animated GIF instead. Enjoy.
Because I believe I am Ookla… I deserve this vintage Ookla The Moc Halloween costume and mask by Ben Cooper. I don’t really have entitlement issues; but I do think I’m entitled to this one thing.

Nifty nerds posting with groovy kitschy puppets; photo found inside Space Age Puppets and Masks by M. C. Green and B. R. H. Targett, published by Plays, Inc, 1969. (My copy, a stated First American Edition, is available.)
But it’s waiters wearing masks for Mardi Gras in a restaurant in Bayern; München, Germany, 1933.
