At Least It Isn't Oozing Blood

Aaron discovered this item in the Halloween costume department of his local Target. It is supposed to create the illusion of a wound beneath your clothing. On the shelf, it looks like… um.

    Funny, but when I looked at this photo “wound sleeve” wasn’t the first thing I thought of. :)

  2. Muddie says:

    That vagina looks infected :-(

  3. Blueskylaw says:

    It looks like that time vortex in the Langoliers.

    OK, I admit, that wasn’t my first thought.

    • Nighthawke says:

      That is better than what most folks are thinking right about now….

    • partofme says:

      I was soooo scared of that movie when I was like seven. Today, I couldn’t tell you a single thing about it.

      • cash_da_pibble says:

        Same here!
        I used to have an inexplicable fear of deep rumbling, the kind passenger jets make when they’re dropping into Airport lanes for landings…
        and it turns out its the almost-exact same noise the Langoliers make.

      • ophmarketing says:

        I enjoyed “The Langoliers” right up to the point where we finally SAW the Langoliers. After that, I was too busy laughing.

        • MauriceCallidice says:

          Those flying-demon-pac-man graphics were absurdly silly and poor quality, even for their era. The mini-series would have been vastly better if we never saw them. Most of the other special effects I thought were fine.

      I’m not the only person who watches Stephen King miniseries? Love you, SyFy (but hate your stupid name).

    it looks like what?

    Just add teeth and then you have a real nightmare.

  6. Straspey says:

    “Trick or Treat!!”

    ummm….okay, sure…

  7. pop top says:

    If it was oozing blood then it would look like a menstruating vagina! How hilarious!

  8. xjeyne says:

    It looks like a vagina?

    When did that become a bad word to say?

    • UCLAri: Allergy Sufferer says:

      Sometimes it’s more fun to allude to something than say it outright.

    • xjeyne says:

      My art has been commended as being strongly vaginal which bothers some men. The word itself makes some men uncomfortable. Vagina.

      • FrugalFreak says:

        i know many of women who don’t say it either, Most popula I’ve heard is coochie or Privates. Some people are modest and not full blown out women world pushers.

        • pop top says:

          How does using the proper term for your genitals make you a “full blown out women world pusher” (what the fuck does that even mean anyway?)?

        • Bativac says:

          So using the term “coochie” makes a woman more modest than just calling it a vagina?

        • HogwartsProfessor says:

          I just call it a hoo-hah. Then whoever I’m talking to, if they’re uncomfortable with the word, will laugh instead of squirm.

        • Thyme for an edit button says:

          I don’t like using it because I think of it as a boring, technical term. I use it if having, say, a conversation about health. However, I don’t use the term if flirting or sexy fun times. Just sounds too clinical. Same for penis.

      • NORMLgirl says:

        Yes, they don’t like hearing it and find it difficult to say whereas without batting an eye a man will refer to his dick or his rod or his Johnson.

      • Ninjastorm66 says:

        Do you have a link to your portfolio?

      • BomanTheBear says:

        I’m a guy, and I would be very unhappy if someone called my art penis-y. Unless it was on purpose (which it definitely wouldn’t be). Is yours on purpose? If so, I don’t get the point of drawing VAGINAS, VAGINAS EVERYWHERE. If not, I don’t know how that would not bother you.

      • chaquesuivant says:

        I think the word vagina might make some men uncomfortable because the sound of the word, and the way it looks printed, show a strength, symmetry both of which make it an appealing word.

        Us guys have a….penis….which sounds silly — kind of like some sort of scientific specimen.

        I think it’s ‘Vagina Envy.’

      • JennQPublic says:

        Just reading that, I can HEAR her saying it… And in her voice, the word makes ME uncomfortable!

    • pop top says:

      I don’t know. I’d rather people said vagina than stupid shit like “va-jay-jay” or “vagoo”. It’s like, you’re not 5, it’s OK to say penis and vagina.

    • jurisenpai says:

      It looks like a *vulva*. Important distinction that gets overlooked.

  9. LightningUsagi says:

    I am officially going to be Vagi-knee for Halloween. XD

  10. mdoneil says:

    Nice, you have risen to the level of elementary school humor.

  11. diasdiem says:

    Looks like it would pass for a good hatchet wound.

  12. RadarOReally has got the Post-Vacation Blues says:

    If my “um” looked like that, I’d be distinctly worried.

  13. cardigan says:

    Meh, I’d still hit it.

  14. CBenji says:

    It looks way too large for a vagina anyway.

  15. Warren - aka The Piddler on the Roof says:

    But Mom! I don’t want to be a vampire again. I want to go as a bovine vagina this year!

  16. scoopie77 says:

    It looks like some scary thing you’d see under a microscope to me.

  17. AllanG54 says:

    Just needs a little wool or hair clippings glued on around it to make it complete.

  18. The_IT_Crone says:

    Only if you’ve never seen a real one before. Jeez.

  19. Omali says:

    Finally my dream of going as Edward Vagina-arms can be fulfilled!

  20. Cheap Sniveler: Sponsored by JustAnswer.comâ„¢ says:

    My plan is to buy all the discounted stock on clearance after halloween and sell them on Ebay as sex toys!


    • dr_drift says:

      For Brobdingnagian penises. You know, like mine! Heyoooo! Come on, who’s with me? Right? Right?

      Eh… I’ve wasted my life.

    “The Consumerist – Shopper bite back” At… vaguely vaginal Halloween costume accessories? Here are some stories your writers might have missed:

    “Cucumber at store totally looks like a bumpy green boner.”
    “Hot lesbian working at Chick-Fil-A makes it more like Chick-Fil-Chick.”
    “Employee at Sam’s Club has stupid idiot face, talks out of it.”

  23. Roe says:

    OMG !! This is the funniest posting and responses I’ve seen in a long time. I have been laughing so hard, I have tears streaming down. Thanks for the laughter, posters !

  24. wsupfoo says:

    The only thing they could have possibly done to make that item more funny was to call it “wound sleeve”. Bravo Target.

  25. snotcopter says:

    Good to know Lindsay Lohan has revived her modeling career!

  26. dadelus says:

    I’m a little worried to see what other stories will end up with a “Hatchet Wounds” heading.

  27. JulesNoctambule says:

    And ladies, if it looks like that, get to a doctor as soon as possible.

  28. dolemite says:

    That costume would ask: “Is it in yet?”

  29. ElizabethD says:

    Needs to be accessorized with a giant Kotex pad.

  30. Plasmafox says:

    It really doesn’t look like a vagina IMO
    What it does remind me of is one of these:

  31. bluline says:

    So if you wore this under some really tight pants…

  32. user452 says:

    Hi, I’m 12 and what is this?

  33. Nic715 says:

    Ahhh…NOW I get why my boyfriend calls it a gash. It all makes sense now! ;)

  34. lordargent says:

    Looks like an axe wound to me.
