Contestant #15: Cowpea, Kale Crusaders 1st Annual Halloween Costume Parade, Powered by Vegan MoFo 2012
In October, we're posting one Costume Parade cartoon per weekday as part of Vegan MoFo. Want to go to the beginning of the Costume Parade? Start with some candy corn!

So, um, Contestant #15, we don't quite get it: where did you get your name?  [The parade pauses as Cowpea responds politely to the host.]  Apparently cowpea is another name for the black-eyed pea: the bean with the cool birthmark.

Fortunately there's no mistaking the awesomeness of the cowpea / black-eyed pea in black eyed pea frittersblack-eyed pea and collard green chili, black-eyed pea burgers, and even black-eyed pea pizza crust.

P.S. So concludes the third week of the costume parade, featuring animal costumes. Next week we'll present our favorite celebrity costumes. Stay tuned!
