What Unusual Halloween Costume Does Each State Google
I like this study because it’s not about the most popular Halloween costume in each state . . . it’s about each state’s most UNUSUAL costume.
The real estate blog Estately.com analyzed Google searches for the past 11 years to figure out what Halloween costume each state looks up more than anyone else. Here are five highlights:
- People in California search for “pregnant nun” costumes the most.
- People in Wisconsin are the most likely to want to dress up as BEER.
- People in Illinois make the most searches for slutty pumpkin costumes.
- People in Texas are looking to explore their feminine side by dressing up as Caitlyn Jenner.
- People in New Jersey search for SNOOKI costumes more than anyone else Keep in mind, the data goes back 11 years, so that covers the whole “Jersey Shore” era. Plus women there already own everything they need for the costume. Hi-YO!
- And people in South Dakota search for the phrase “costume ideas” more than anyone else.
(You can see the top searches for every state here. Sadly, about one in five states didn’t have enough searches for specific costumes to make the list.)
If you were in the crowd watching Taylor Swift at the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey on Friday night, you were probably just as shocked as everyone else to see the world champion U.S. women’s soccer team onstage!
As part of her “1989 World Tour,” T-Swift brought the team out onstage to help her perform “Style.” Four of the women’s players hail from the Garden State. And the ladies didn’t come onstage empty handed: they had their championship trophy in tow and held it in the air as the crowd below went nuts.
Also in the building for the show were a few of Taylor’s famous friends and “Bad Blood” video co-stars including Lena Dunham, Hailee Steinfeld, Gigi Hadid and Lily Aldridge. Supermodel Heidi Klum also jumped onstage and The Weeknd came out to perform his current single, “Can’t Feel My Face.” Swift’s tour wraps December 12th in Melbourne, Australia.

A high school senior in New Jersey named Patrick Smith asked a girl to prom in front of 2,000 people at some sort of pep rally in April. And now the video of it that his friend posted is going viral, because she REJECTED him.
He was holding a microphone, and when she said she already had a date, the whole crowd reacted. Luckily they’re still friends, and he found another date. Apparently getting shot down didn’t turn him off of the whole elaborate prom-posal thing though.
He asked the other girl by showing up to her house with a giant sign.
Ryan and Jourdan Spencer of Scotch Plains, New Jersey met on a blind date back in 2004, and got married in 2007. And a few years ago, they were checking out some old home movies from Jourdan’s childhood.
They were watching one from July of 1988 . . . Jourdan was just a little girl at the time, visiting an amusement park in Langhorne, Pennsylvania called Sesame Place. And while her dad was filming her, a skinny kid with glasses randomly walked into the frame.
It was RYAN.
They grew up about 45 minutes apart, and had even talked about going to Sesame Place as kids . . . but they had no idea they were there on the same DAY in 1988, or that they’d ever crossed paths.
They just showed their three kids the tape . . . and they say the tape is making them both believe in FATE.
You know how the waitress always says, “Be careful, these are SOOOOO hot” when she brings over your skillet of fajitas? She’s NOT lying.
Hiram Jimenez of Trenton, New Jersey went to an Applebee’s back in March of 2010 and ordered steak fajitas . . . and of course they were served in a sizzling skillet.
When the food arrived, Hiram and his brother decided to pray, and bowed their heads. But Hiram dipped a little too low and burned his left eye and his FACE on the skillet. Then he jumped up and knocked the skillet into his lap, and caused MORE burns.
Fortunately, none of the burns left a scar . . . but he still sued Applebee’s for negligence.
His case has been bouncing around the courts ever since . . . but yesterday, an appeals court finally squashed it. They ruled that the danger of the sizzling fajitas was self-evident and it was Hiram’s fault for putting his face too close.
