I guess I'm getting sensitive in my old age, but I'd NEVER put my children in that second costume!  What the hell would it be telling kids--let's mock folks that were cruelly treated in prison?

Sorry.  It may just be me.  I have students from the Middle East in my ESL classes--maybe I'm just touchy from having to defend them from other kids who enjoy mocking them at school.

I'm pretty sure those are supposed to be jokes.

Unfortunately they are not very funny. Kind of disturbing with the kids used as models.

Yeah - sorry these are meant as jokes.

I think in the context of the page they're hillarious - but I wouldn't think it was funny if i saw them out in public.

I hadn't even noticed the link above the pictures--I thought these were real costume suggestions!   :oops:
