Colbert-Stewart Rally Expected To Ruin Halloween Party Attendance Nationwide

WASHINGTON, DC -  (The Comedy News) - This weekend, the "Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear" hosted by comedians Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart is expected to cause a significant dip in attendance at college Halloween parties.

Typically, the Saturday of Halloween weekend is christened with hundreds of thousands of debaucherous costume parties, particularly at large college campuses such as the University of Wisconsin-Madison, University of California-Santa Barbara, and North Carolina State University.

A vast number of those who typically host and attend such Halloween festivities are abandoning makeup and jelloshots in favor of attending the big political rally in Washington, DC. The comedians, Colbert and Stewart, have been the premier voices in galvanizing young politically-minded voters.

The excitement surrounding their upcoming rally on the National Mall is already encroaching on Halloween parties. Costume stores have reported that the most popular outfits being sold at costume stores have been tiny political buttons and sarcastic trucker hats embroidered with slogans such as "Tea Parties Are About Sharing", and "Let's Keep the Change".

Last-minute efforts are being arranged via Facebook statuses to get college students to care less about politics, and support the sacred tradition of getting belligerently intoxicated and dressing up like film characters from the early 1990s.

Currently, the Facebook event "Rally to Restore Buffoonery" is scheduled to take place on Saturday, October 30 from 12:00 AM through October 31 at 3:00 AM at 'Whereverthehellyougotocollege, CA'. So far, there are 24 confirmed attendees, and 17.5 million invitees listed as 'awaiting reply'.
