9. Feather removing electrolysis (Chicken Joke)
8. Ski mask
7. Sew up holes in ski mask
6. Hire attractive woman to stand in front of you at all times;
5. Beak job (Chicken Joke)
4. Put paper bag over ski mask
3. Shave head, tattoo Cindy Crawford's face on back of head and learn to walk backwards
2. Poke out eyes of every man on Earth
1. Get President to make every day Halloween.

Some more Marcy facts: Marcy's early childhood consisted of a mother whose three husbands committed suicide and a number of pet dogs including Winkums and Chester. In later life, Marcy's got a Doberman dog and named it Bella after New York feminist politician Bella Abzug. When Marcy cut her hair short, she was constantly being mistaken for a young man. Having a flat chest didn't help. Marcy likes to role play during sex. Once she and Jefferson dressed up like Al and Peg Bundy and participated in an orgy of trailer trash lovemaking. Marcy has a lesbian cousin named Mandy whom Al Bundy likes, even though she is a dead ringer for Marcy.
