Halloween costume of the day

If you watched the Bill Maher segment, you saw a lot of adult Halloween costumes, most of them of the genre “Slutty ____” (why is that the case?). But costumes are really for kids, and I wanted to post the best one I’ve seen today. Some enterprising parents did a bang up job (or a snap-up job). 

I think I found this on my Facebook page, so if you’re the one who posted it (and I can’t remember), thanks!

    That is one creepy costume, because the trap is in a fully cocked orientation, with nothing holding the spring loaded copper tubing “snap-bar” in place. I’d feel a lot less queasy if the snap-bar (or whatever it is called) was oriented behind the “mouse”.

      Spring is not a spring. It’s some kind of *flat* material, possibly flat two-core wire. No real spring.

      No trigger.

      That immediately occurred to me, too. However, as you said, nothing is holding the bar in place (the trigger mechanism is missing) so if it was going to ‘snap’ it would already have done so.

      As S A Gould noted, the ‘spring’ is not one.

    The reason for the many “slutty” costumes is because Halloween is a big night to go to a party, drink, and cavort with the opposite sex. It provides a handy excuse to the women (and some men, I suppose) to dress more outrageously than they are able on other occasions.

    This Halloween costume is very offensive as it is promoting the inhumane treatment of rodents. Why not wear a catch-and-release costume !? Mice will no doubt be very offended this year !

    Very good costume! I love it when people get creative instead of grabbing a boring commercial costume off the rack.

    As a model builder, I’m impressed. Plus the little mouse is adorable.

      Yeah, what a cute idea! Plus, you don’t have to carry the baby the whole way.

      Yes, this “mousetrap” is a display of intelligent design. The only kind of intelligent design we could observe.
