"Sexy" "Sesame Street" And "Costume" Should Not Be In The Same Sentence

What are you dressing up as for Halloween? Perhaps a sexy Elmo? Or a sexy Big Bird? Yes, it’s that time of year again when that which should not be eroticized, is, and is turned into a Halloween costume.

To wit, the description for the sexy Cookie Monster reads, “She did it all for the cookie.” Groan. Who down there at the Children’s Television Workshop licensed this? The Count should do an audit.

Not as bad, though, as the “Pirate Wench” costume for tweens or the “sexy catholic schoolgirl” costume for dogs.
