We think this was an Apple themed Halloween party, as witnessed by the iPod nano (first generation?), the iPod silhouette ad person, and a giant-headed Steve Jobs (although, points taken off for the blue denim shirt, instead of the black turtleneck). Photo credit: flickr

Someday, when Facebook institutes live images to its photo profile page, we can all look back at this photo as the source for that inspiration. Unless this guy kept that expression all evening.
