Think I found my Halloween Costume  

Posted in ,

Wow!! I am completely baffled by this nonsense I'm reading in the newspaper and on the web. People are protesting this Halloween costume depicting a space alien in an orange jumpsuit with a green card. Are you serious????

Has anybody seen the movie Men in Black? I thought it was a great flick. I can't understand how people can get from space alien to undocumented (illegal) immigrant. Have we slid that far, that now we find offense in a Halloween costume? I'm embarrassed for the organization that is protesting this, and I feel sad for somebody that would find offense in something as silly as this.

I wonder how people would react if I was to dress up as a saltine cracker (I'm white). Would that offend other white people? Possibly that would offend crackers? Maybe Morton salt would get offended cause I was an unsalted cracker.

Enough of this garbage people. Come on what happened to people having a good time with Halloween? Kids dressed up in just about anything they could find when I was a kid. We were a hobo, or a ghost, or sometimes maybe even a ghostly hobo. Will homeless people get offended if my kid becomes a hobo for Halloween? How about mediums? Will they get offended if my kid dresses up as a ghost that doesn't match their idea of a ghost? Heck, will goats be offended that I just called my child a kid?

I would rather have my kid dress up as an illegal space alien, than a hooker, or Charles Manson. No offense intended to killers or prostitutes. I just think that it's a cooler outfit. How about if we all lighten up and quit worrying so much about everything somebody is doing. Everything is not meant to offend. Some people are still trying to have a good time, and guess what? They shouldn't have to worry about whether me or somebody else is gonna be offended, because they are entitled to their opinion of fun.

Maybe the new theme for Halloween should be caffeine free, sugar free, fright free, color free, fun free...... I guess I shouldn't be that surprised, they took the fun out of Christmas years ago. It was just a matter of time until they got around to Halloween.

I totally agree with you. Too much time on their lonely hands, I guess.

Good post.

Of course you're right, Bendigo. But I'm really going to throw a fit when I see these little ones dressing up as bloggers (me in my pj's, hair uncombed, back stiff from the uncomfortable chair, stuffing down popcorn while I surf like a madwoman in front of the computer screen, feet comfortable in my CROCS (I would only admit this on your blog, you know).

I actually feel privileged when the kids actually dress up. I have so many just come by with a Walmart bag and sad eyes. I don't think they realize that they're suppose to say "trick or treat". Then the mothers come holding the bags for the infants in the strollers.

Again -- I've never seen these people, so I know they're not my neighbors.

I've turned this into my rage on your turf, haven't I? Carry on!

Ha Ha....You are most welcome to Rage anytime you wish at Bendigo's :) I too get many kids merely carrying a bag...It's sad to see, because as a child I would have never been allowed to trick or treat without an approved costume (my mom did the approving) and without the magic words of "Trick or Treat" being spoken loud and clear...
