Michael Ian Black wishes that his kids had put a little more thought into their Halloween costumes. (1:55)

THREE BIG DATES

ON THE CHILD CALENDAR.

YOU KNOW, THERE'S--THERE'S BIRTHDAYS

AND THERE'S CHRISTMASAND THERE'S HALLOWEEN.

AND A COUPLE YEARS AGO

WAS THE FIRST YEAR

THAT MY KIDS WERE OLD ENOUGH

TO COME UP WITH THEIR OWNHALLOWEEN COSTUMES.

AND AS A PARENT,

I COULD NOT WAIT TO SEE

WHAT THEY WOULD BEFOR HALLOWEEN,

BECAUSE KIDS HAVEAMAZING IMAGINATIONS.

YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN?

THEY COULD BE ANYTHINGFOR HALLOWEEN.

HERE'S WHAT MY KIDSDECIDED TO BE.

MY SON DECIDED TO GOAS A PIRATE.

MY DAUGHTER DECIDED TO GOAS A PRINCESS.

THE LEAST CREATIVE COSTUMESIN THE WORLD.

NOT FOR THE FIRST TIME,

I WAS INCREDIBLY DISAPPOINTEDWITH MY CHILDREN.

NO, BECAUSE IF THEY--NO!

BECAUSE IF THEY HAD JUST PUTANY MORE THOUGHT

INTO THEIR COSTUMES,

THEY COULD HAVE BEENCOOL COSTUMES.

LIKE, IF MY SONHAD BEEN LIKE,

"I WANNA BE A PIRATE,

BUT I WANNA BEA SOMALI PIRATE,"

I WOULD'VE BEEN LIKE,"THAT'S A COOL COSTUME."

MY DAUGHTER HAD BEEN LIKE,"I WANNA BE A PRINCESS--

I WANNA BEA JEWISH-AMERICAN PRINCESS."

[laughter and applause]

I WOULD HAVE BEEN LIKE,"COOL COSTUME."

YOU KNOW WHAT THE KIDNEXT DOOR WENT AS?

A CAT'S TAIL.

NOT A CAT.

A CAT'S TAIL.

WHEN HE CAME TO OUR HOUSE

AND EXPLAINED THAT HE WAS NOTA PIPE CLEANER,

WHICH ALSO WOULD HAVEBEEN EXCELLENT,

BUT WAS, IN FACT,A CAT'S TAIL,

I DID NOTGIVE THAT CHILD CANDY.

I GAVE HIM A HUG

AND I WROTE HIM A CHECKFOR $100.
