Nine Halloween Costumes That Make You Question Humanity

Halloween (All Hallows/Saints’ Eve)  is nearly here. A celebration of ghosts, ghouls and all things spooky.

8. Klueless Klux Klan Ghosts Throw Gang Signs

These three boys said they were ghosts… guess they didn’t get the memo that the KKK copywrited the pointed cone design.

9. Bacon Hitler

Why ruin something as great as bacon? B+ for creativity, D- for Don’t go as Hitler…
