Behold, the physical manifestation of possibly the most unlikely combination of words ever conceived by humans: The "Sexy Vaccine Costume."
I don't know about you, but when I think "sexy," I think, "woman with a giant novelty hypodermic needle sticking out of her head."
Still, I can't help but think something is missing. I feel vaguely threatened by this image.
This costume comes courtesy of the company, "3 Wishes," one of mine having just become "I wish I could unsee this."
Nevertheless, it is here, and unlike, say, "high class" luxury items such as food, it's available for immediate shipping!
The costume itself is totally devoid of anything resembling imagination. A cocktail dress with a syringe headband.
This is not something you carefully design, proceed to production, and take to market for $55.95. This is something you throw together an hour before you have to be at a Halloween party made up of an old prom dress your parents wouldn't let you wear along with whatever you could find in your toddler's toy box.
In fact, it is so freighted with self-parody, that the very first thing I did when I came across it on social media was to confirm that it actually existed.
We could simply dismiss it as a publicity stunt, which surely was part of the intent, but given that we live in the age of the Fauci prayer candle, I think it's considered a serious item that Covid crazies will buy.
Well, two can play at that game.
