The costume features the mask of an alien with a green card and an orange jumpsuit with "illegal alien" written across the front.

So if they would have called it "Undocumented Extraterrestrial Visitor" would that have been PC enough to sell it?

I think it's funny too, I'm probably a racist huh?

I was telling the wife about it yesterday, we both laughed and rolled our eyes that some immigration group in southern Komiefornia was asking Target to take it off the racks because of its offense nature.

Recent poll shows that 91% are not offended and 9% are. But what the heck, it only takes one person to be offended by the sight of a cross to cause a major controversy.

Yeah it reminds me of that episode of Family Guy with the David Hyde Pierce incident on TV and the FCC got 20 calls complaining about it and they were like each person equaled 1 billion people so 20 billion people were offended so they censored TV....

Well that's just stupid.

Everyone knows if you have a green card, you are not illegal.
Not if it expired, or it's a fake...

But illegal immigrants never have false documentation...

I thought it was pretty funny too.

I did think it was weird that Target would stock something like that - considering that it was only a matter of time before they caught bad press about it. But you know Wal-Mart sure as hell wouldn't have sold them, no need to alienate 3/4's of your customers.

No pun intended right?

I do what I can.

But seriously, wal-mart does feel like a totally different planet, a hostile one.
Yeah and it sucks when you can't get ammo on a hostile planet. :devilsidesmile:

Has this illegal alien costume really caused "controversey"????


I just can't believe that it's that big a deal.

Here is the list of the items my 11 year old son purchased at the Halloween store for his costume this year.

1 rather large crappy sombrero.

1 Actual knit wool poncho, cause they don't make "costume" ponchos. Luckily it was actually from mexico so it only cost $10.00

1 Giant black fake mustache with the glue to put it on.

1 Giant black fake Goatee with glue to put it on.

1 Giant black fake Mono-brow eye brow with glue to put it on.

2 dog squeeky toys shaped and colored to look like Tacos.

His Costume is called, "Paco the Taconator".

This was all his idea. He giggled the whole time we were purchasing the stuff. To him, it's just a great and original costume.

I wonder if anyone will say it's offensive???

Screw-em. It's halloween. He can dress up as anything he wants and I'll support him. It's freakin halloween!!!

If I were an illegal alien and could read English, I would still find the costume damn funny. It seems no one can take a joke anymore or laugh at themselves. Sorry all, I'm just not a bleeding heart liberal, I find it funny.
