Me and my mates have decided to come up with (and throw) the most bizarre themed party we can come up with. So I thought perhaps some TC members would like to provide input! The idea is that it is a theme that no-one would think of doing, yet is still do-able.

Some thoughts:

Flemish Fun Friday

The Dairy Farm Party

The Party-odic Table of Elements

How about a preschool party? Everyone wears adult diapers and plays with toys while watching Schoolhouse Rock. The punch has been spiked, of course.

Foiled again
Try to see how many different and fun costumes you can make out of foil.

How about this:

"The Donner Party"

It is a winter party where the food at the table is labeled with the names of colonial pioneers, on makeshift crosses ("Which salsa do I want, Jeb or Karen?")

There are lots of great puns possible ("We'd like to have you for dinner!") and the invitations could be crudely drawn maps. Attire: coonskin caps and bonets. I think there's a lot you can do with this, depending on how far you want to take it (please, don't take it too far).

Okay, it's pretty sick. But it was a long time ago.

(for you Canadians, The Donner Party was a large group of westward settlers who got snowed in trying to cross a mountain pass. Most (if not all) died, and ended up eating each other in order to survive.)

Oh, I am familiar weith the Donner PArty! In fact I think I have cracked more than my fair share of Donner Party jokes myself.. only to get blank stares from my friends. It sucks to be a historical pop culture junkie sometimes...

That's an awesome idea... and all the food could just have quotes around it like "Chicken" kebabs... "Beef" stew... all it takes is a bit of punctuation to make you wonder...

I also like the Kingston Trio idea - but again, it would just meet with the blank stares... ahhhh!

Speaking of the Donner Party:

In the spirit of cross cultural creepy clan story swapping, may I present... THE BLACK DONNELLYS!

When I was reading through the Black Donnelly's webpage, I got to the part that mentioned the disappearance of the original Donnelly gravestone and it reminded me of a distinctive gravestone legend here in Baltimore...

This is from the Ghost of Bizzare Theme Party Ideas Past. When I was in college (early 80's) my frat had a "generic" party. At that time generic canned (& other) foods - white label stating what it was, big bar codes - were just coming to your local grocery stores. They had generic beer, too! Yeh, we bought some. We also put up giant bar codes on white butcher paper with the word "banner", hung black & white streamers, used white styrofoam cups for drinks, labeled darn near *everything* in that generic style, & wore white t-shirts with bar codes and "student", "drunk" & many others I can't remember.

One of those things where ya had to be there, I guess!

Brilliant! And Did you play P.I.L.'s "Album" and "cassette" all night?

Great Party Idea!

Great idea! You should also listen to Flipper's 'Generic' album which came out many years before PIL's. PIL's classic 'Metal Box' idea was all their own, tho'.

As for party ideas, there's always Tiki parties, but people rarely are forced to dress AS Tikis. I once went to a 'meat party' where only meat was served, and yes, it was pretty gross, despite being a carnivore (well, omnivore). Another rather disasterous party from that era was a jello-wrestling party where someone tipped out all the jello from the 'ring' (a kiddies play-pool) in the first few minutes and the organisers had to replace it with warm oatmeal.

BRANIFF PARTY:
Guys dress like 60's business men and Gals like husband stealing, Sexy Stews. Hooch comes in little bottles, food in pre-packaged colorless portions. Everyone tries to have sex in the (tiny) bathroom.

TALIBAN PARTY:
No shaving, drinking, music, movies, western clothing, paper, singing, dancing, mingling with the opposite sex, fun etc,. Women conveniently come dressed in their shrouds.

DEER HUNTER PARTY:
One revolver, one bullet, all the "Tiger" beer you can drink. Red head scarves mandatory.

Cool idea about the board game pieces. What about a hanna barbara salute. Come as your favorite old cartoon/show charator favorite such as Hong Kong Phooey, Captain Caveman, Snagglepuss, Josie and the Pussycats, Sigmond and the Seamonsters(my all time favorite), Scooby Doo, and so on...
