Nothing's Hallowed

Despite our best efforts to blend in, we both still kind of stick out here, and that can sometimes be a little uncomfortable. Fortunately, Halloween, with its emphasis on crude ethnic sterotypes, has come along just in time to help us out. We've just ordered this tasty his and hers combo, which we're planning to wear year-round. Who's the gringo now, eh?

But that's just everyday-use stuff. What to wear for the big night? I was partial to the giant human taco, until I saw that the "lettuce, cheese, tomato and moustache" were "simulated." For $126.99 down here, I can pick up enough ingredients for a six-foot edible taco and get a Sassy Señorita to cook it for me. In fact, that's exactly what I'm gonna do.

(Note to all the south-of-the-border furry fetishists out there: the Miguel Mouse costume is a special order, 4-6 week delivery item. "Spot clean with a damp rag. For a complete cleaning after the costume has been worn several times, we suggest taking the costume to the drycleaners." Eww.)

(Personal aside to the Missus: Don't even think about it.)
