One-legged Man Turns His Hardship into Hilariously Creative Halloween Costumes

Oct 28, 2014 By Abraham 1

Josh Sundquist is an author, paralympic skier, cancer survivor, and one of the happiest people you’ll find on the internet. He describes himself as a “US Amputee Soccer Team member, motivational speaker, and Halloween enthusiast.”

He has proven this love for Halloween over the last several years with costumes that play to two of his greatest skills — namely, being hilarious and…having just one leg.

In 2010 (the same year he gave us the “Amputee Rap”), he was…

A partially consumed ginger bread man.

Maybe Stephen Colbert needs to come over here and get a dose of reality. He sits in the comfort of his studio, reading jokes written for him by 30 writers. So, I have a challenge for Stephen Colbert: I’ll pay for your flight. I’ll pay for your hotel, your meals. Then you sit on the border. You talk to the people. You sit across from the mother of an Israeli solider who was killed, and then make a joke about it.

If you’re skimming and didn’t read that whole quote, here’s the short version: No, Hannity didn’t watch the joke in question. But he still doesn’t like it.
