I am an assistant supervisor over a prepping department. We have a goal of 80 boxes of prepped work per night. We have had some difficult clients come through, so it's been hard to meet that goal. Another assistant over our scanning department is a wacky kind of guy. Our supervisor came up with the idea that if my preppers met their goal Friday night, that this guy would have to wear a dress to work on Monday. Well, his scanners were also pushing themselves to 1) break a company record by scanning 90 boxes, and 2) doing so with one of our fastest scanning machines down. I told them that since their assistant had to do something if my preppers made their goal, that I would do something if they met their goal as well. Since their supervisor was dressing as a woman, the scanners came up with the idea of us dressing as a famous couple, only with me being the guy and him being the girl. Since he is taller than me, they came up with him dressing as Cher and me dressing as Sonny. They want us to get up and sing "I Got You Babe" but I don't see that happening.

Anyway, I am 5'7" and weigh 200+ lbs. How the hell am I going to look like Sonny???? Any suggestions? I have some sandals and bootcut jeans are the closest things I have to bellbottoms. I guess I could go try to find a fake mustache tomorrow when I decide to get out.

You're not going to look like Sonny (he was short and had no breasts) so you'll have to do the best you can.

1. If your hair is still long like it was in the pic you posted, you'll need a Sonny wig. Your hair will need to look like this.

2. You'll need a large cheesy fake Sonny mustache. (see above)

3. You'll need to ditch your glasses

4. You'll need a nice 70s polyester suit.

5. You'll need to talk through your nose, just like Sonny did.

6. You'll need to play the setup man for your "Cher" just like Sonny did.

&. You'll need to learn all the words to "I Got You Babe" or "The Beat Goes On."

Good luck with that.

Well, my hair is shorter now, above my shoulders. Didn't he have longer hair at one time, or was it always short like that? And sandals, bootcut jeans, and a seventies style shirt won't work?

He had his hair several lengths. Just comb it straight down in the front and you'll be OK.

I dont recall Sonny ever wearing jeans on television unles it was in a skit, but I guess you have to work with what you've got eh?

You'll do fine. :)

I GOT YOU BABE - SONNY AND CHER
--------
They say we're young and we don't know
Won't find out until we grow
Well I don't know if all that's true
But you got me and baby I got you

Babe
I got you babe
I got you babe

They say our love won't pay the rent
before it's earned our money's all been spent.
I guess that's so we don't have a pot,
but at least I'm sure of all the things we got.

Babe
I got you babe
I got you babe

I got flowers In the spring
I got you to wear my ring
And when I'm sad you're a clown
And when I get scared you're always around

So let them say your hair's too long
'cause I don't care with you I can't do wrong.
Then put your little hand in mine,
there ain't no hill or mountain we can't climb

Babe
I got You Babe
I got you babe

I got you to hold my hand-I got you to understand
I got you to walk with me- I got you to talk with me
I got you to kiss good night- I got you to hold me tight
I got you I won't let go- I got you to love me so

I got you babe </p>

You'll have to excuse Skip. He's old and hasnt seen a real woman since the Eisenhower administration.

Sonny And Cher - The Beat Goes on
_____
The beat goes on,
the beat goes on.
Drums keep pounding a rhythm to the brain.
La de da de de,
la de da de da.

Charleston was once the rage, uh huh.
History has turned the page, uh huh.
The miniskirt's the current thing, uh huh.
Tennybopper see our newborn king, uh huh.

And the beat goes on,
the beat goes on.
Drums keep pounding a rhythm to the brain.
La de da de de,
la de da de da.

The grocery store's the supermart, uh huh.
Little girls still break their hearts, uh huh.
And men still keep on marching off to war.
Electrically they keep a baseball score.

And the beat goes on,
the beat goes on.
Drums keep pounding a rhythm to the brain.
La de da de de,
la de da de da.

Grandmas sit in chairs and reminisce
Boys keep chasing girls to get a kiss.
The cars keep going faster all the time.
Bums still cry 'Hey buddy, have you got a dime?'

And the beat goes on,
the beat goes on.
Drums keep pounding a rhythm to the brain. </p>

You could always just get the wig, glasses, 'stache, and then go rent a ski suit...............

I think these guys are on the right track. Go get a white suit and paint a tree trunk up the middle of it.

I'm pretty sure a Sonny Bono costume has to include some mangled skis... maybe some leaves and twigs and shit.

Okay, the skiing Sonny Bono was not paired up with Cher at the time, so I can't do that. :shake:
