WDYT?

Target had been selling an illegal alien costume, people have complained and it sounds like some sotres are pulling it off the shelves.[url]http://tinyurl.com/yku84oy[/url]

    yeah, it's in bad taste. But so are a lot of other halloween costumes.  Pregnant nun? Preist molester? Beastiality man? They're all horrible.

    What cw said.  It's in poor taste, but so are a lot of other costumes.  I think the fact it had an alien mask softens it in my eyes.

    While I don't agree with the costume, this annoys me: The costume makes a "mockery of the status of millions of immigrants in need of immigration reform," said Jorge Mujica of Chicago, an activist with the group March 10th Committee.No. They're in need of learning how to follow the rules and come here legally like millions of other immigrants.

    I just think it's a stupid costume and not that funny. And CW has a really good point. I also don't have a ton of sympathy for illegal aliens. It's one of the few issues that I lean right on. I support immigration reform and realize something needs to be done, but I don't think they should be protected quite as fiercely as some.

    aren't most costumes mockery?I mean, either it's your hero when you're 10 (firefighter, etc) or it's gory/scary, or it's making fun.

    The use of the mask tilts me to the 'hey, it's a pun' side, but actually putting "Illegal Alien" on it makes me pinch the bridge of my nose.Not because it offends me, mind you, but in a, "You people are idiots for not knowing what kind of trouble you just caused yourself."

    The evil part of me wants to think "do they even know enough English to know that it says Illegal Alien on the shirt?" The other part of me just doesn't give a feck. I bet I see one this year.

    I'm pretty sensitive to this stuff and I think it's really blown up.  It's a play on words and I think all the uproar is pretty ridiculous.
