    I was just watching a show on Fox-I think it's called Heartland and they were talking about some guy that's selling pimp and hoe Halloween costumes for kids!!!!! They showed pics and everything. I was cracking up(only because I would hope no parent would really let their child dress like this). What some people will do for a dollar. I am trying to find a link with some pics.


    :eek:

    Yeah, sometimes I'd count the amount of fun sizes I had, and plan a ration accordingly. One or two a day, for one week. I'd come home to find a few missing. :confused:

    I usually found the wrappers in the trash can in my parents' room. :huh:

    Well, just another example of the influence of the rap culture! You can thank MTV as well for celebrating such stupidity. Personally, white guilt has gone too far when white parents allow their children to emulate this crap.

    There are certainly enough parts of black culture to celebrate- the fact that someone, anyone, would choose this is just disgusting. Perhaps our children could learn about and celebrate Harriet Tubman, George Washington Carver or Lena Horne. Or maybe they could learn about the Apollo Theater or the Blue Man Group or Smokey Joe's.

    But no, they celebrate ghetto life.

    To me, that racism in the highest.

    The guy on Fox(forgot his name-John ?) agreed with you as do I. Apparently the maker of these costumes is getting a lot of heat. I say,any parent that would allow this has got to be ,well.... He was blaming MTV as well for their promoting of this kind of crap to be cool. I couldn't help but laugh though,I'm shocked that anyone would buy these.The maker says that kids don't really know what these terms mean. He says they just associate them with being rich or driving nice cars!!! I would beg to differ.

    I usually eat most of it before halloween. Last year I stashed it at my neighbor's house, but I ate a bag before I thought to bring it over there. I'm a chocoholic, Halloween is the hardest time of year for us. :cry:

    It is. I have no reason to buy candy other than to feed myself. Do you know how self-consoius I feel walking out of the store with twenty bucks worth of candy under my arm? Now I know how the fat kids feel.... And it doesnt feel good.:cry:

    I've been off the sweets all summer, and managed to lose 10 pounds. I didn't cut anything else out, or add extra exercise. That might give you an idea as to how much I was actually eating! I still eat it here and there, but not a couple of times a day everyday, like I was all winter.....it's not that cold up here. Chocolate, it's dangerous stuff, now I know addicts feel. :D
