Those hoping to find an illegal alien costume this week thinking it would make the absolute perfect Halloween costume are out of luck, because the one that was for sale over at places like Target and Amazon has been pulled from shelves because folks are offended that it depicts the alien in a prison uniform holding up a giant green card. I say ... why is it so offensive? If aliens were to come down and try to buy the house next door to me, wouldn't they have to obey the same laws as me? Why is everything offensive to everyone these days? When did our society completely lose our sense of humor as a whole? Back in the 80s, you could wear a Halloween costume that featured a big bald man kicking an elderly lady, and that was totally appropriate.

These days ... pshhh! Can't even buy a good old alien costume from Target. When they were selling the costume, this was the description that came with it: "He didn't just cross a border, he crossed a galaxy! He's got his green card, but it's from another planet! Sure to get some laughs, the Illegal Alien Adult Costume includes an orange prison-style jumpsuit with 'Illegal Alien' printed on the front, an alien mask and a 'green card.'"

These people who wanted it banned do know that by banning a Halloween costume, you just create more demand for it, right? What do you think? Is it wrong? Should we be offended by it? Or do people need to take a chill pill and ease up on the Halloween get-ups?
