The Great Protector

In Bernie and the Putty, Bernie takes on the role of the Great Protector.  When it’s time for him to make first contact, Lenny convinces him that he should wear a robe with grey hair and a beard.  “It will make you look wiser,” he said.

This is a great picture and pretty close to what I think Bernie looked like:

We host a Halloween party every year, and, since most of my friends read my book, I decided to dress as the Great Protector.  Underneath the robe (which symbolizes Bernie’s graduation gown), I’m wearing frayed Levis, a “Save the Lookies” T-shirt, and tennis shoes with the laces untied.   The Great Protector’s first appearance was in a library.
