It's Hard Out Here for a Pimp

Sure Halloween is a long way off, but it's never to early to make sure your son and daughter have the right outfits.


  1. "Only 1 left in stock--order soon."

    Unclear whether they mean the hooker outfit, or the occupant of the outfit.

  2. Last Halloween we went up to one of the suburbs of Pittsburgh to pick up a copy of the Best Buy Exclusive "The Classic Sci-Fi Ultimate Collection Volume 2” set (which included DR. CYCLOPS, THE DEADLY MANTIS, THE LAND UNKNOWN, THE LEECH WOMAN and CULT OF THE COBRA) and we stopped in at one of the Halloween shops set up in a big tent in the mall parking lot. In addition to the usual cheap, cheesy and overly gory (an annoying trend since the '80s thanks to splatter movies and the Roseanne and Home Improvement TV shows) one half of one of the long aisles had very sexed up slutty costumes for young women. I paused by two young ladies (late teens) looking at them and obviously amused and said, "Do your parents a favor and dress up as nuns." They were amused.

  3. I thought the two best costumes I saw online last Halloween were:

  4. Those are great. I love that gorilla hand.
