The scariest costume of the year

Little kid dresses up as a credit card for Halloween.

'Adbuster,' James Stafford, blogs about a ten-year-old girl in his neighborhood dressing up in the ultimate consumerist costume.

"Yesterday, I saw the most spectacular Halloween costume. A little girl, about ten years old, was parading through my neighbourhood (engaging in glorified begging for junk food) whilst dressed in the most outlandish outfit. Her choice of costume? A witch? No. A ghost? No. An undead bride of Dracula? No. A hideously disfigured corpse? No. A credit card? Yes. Yes, you read that right. She was dressed as a credit card. A girl, about ten years old, dressed as a credit card. I really don’t know where to start. (I found an advert of this costume on Google, see below.) My first thought was: “That’s not a proper Halloween costume. There’s no blood, no gore.” My second thought was: “What kind of spoilt little bitch wants to dress as a credit card for Halloween?” Why the hell is a ten year old even interested in credit cards anyway? If a child of mine ever asked to dress up as a credit card for Halloween they’d be off to a foster home before they’d even finished their sentence.

Hmm i see your anger, true 10 yrs. old and dressing as a visa. Now America is built on the words of are forefathers, and the right to pursue happiness. It's sad to say are children, my own little brother is addicted to the tube, and all it's glorifications of "You want this". he's seen too much life in that little box it's become a gross truth, he needs to be freed and exposed to real life, nature, as i've found by my own experience it's the only cure. I needed the out doors more and more as a kid but who has money for those trips? I'm sorry nicholas...

This is hilarious!! Perhaps they were well aware of the costumes 'scary' connotations...either that, or they are quite simply mental.
