Illegal Alien Halloween Costume
I just received a press release claiming that, despite complaints getting them removed from retail store shelves, illegal alien Halloween costumes are becoming an underground sensation. Indeed, the group claims, “This costume is going to be the most popular costume of 2009 because 78% of Americans oppose any path to citizenship for illegal aliens and resent this attempt to quell free speech and freedom of expression in America.”
Well, I don’t know about that. Then again, I didn’t even know the costume existed, much less that it has been banned. (See Amanda Terkel for a rundown as well as a rather histrionic view from the opposition to said costumes.)
Regardless, while the juxtaposition of the two meanings of “alien” is rather clever here, I would imagine that the demand for such a costume is rather limited. After all, the whole point of dressing up in costumes for Halloween is to have fun. And, as we all know, it’s no fun being an illegal alien.
