Read this today. I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry -- so I blogged.
My favorite part of the above article?
Jorge-Mario Cabrera, the director of communications for CHIRLA, said he initially thought the costume was a stab at harmless satire. But when he saw the Green Card, he realized it was a swipe at illegal immigrants.
I wonder if he realizes that the “green card” makes you legal? Repeat after me: if you have a green card, then you are legal.
The stupidity of people continues to amaze me.
Then it makes you wonder if perhaps the makers of the costume paid someone a small fee to complain so that they could get some free advertisement.
I know I wouldn’t have ever thought of buying the costume until I heard the complaints on the radio (heck, I didn’t even know it existed!). Now, I’m thinking of buying one for my German wife. My kids think it’s funny that she’s an alien.
