Halloween is just around the corner and all of the costume stores and temporary Halloween shops will be selling out their stock as fast as possible before the clock ticks to midnight on October 31. That means that pickings will be slim for your son or daughter who have to wear a costume to roam the neighborhood in search of free candy.

If you're not careful, they might pick up a clearly inappropriate choice off the rack. Not only will this earn your family generations of therapy bills, but it will make you the object of ridicule and scorn at every PTA meeting for the rest of your life.

To save you the time, bother and psychosis that this all too common scenario will eventually bring, we did a little digging of our own and found some truly inappropriate costumes made for children. (Yes, you can buy pretty much all of these. Whether you should depends on whether you're ready for some uncomfortable questions from your kids.) So even if you don't have children to clothe for Halloween, at least you'll know which ones you should give an extra piece of candy to to help sweeten the doomed life that's ahead of them.
