The Illegal Alien Costume

Hello IGWers,

As you all know Halloween is just around the corner. Kids and adults alike are flocking to the stores looking for the best costume they can possibly find. However, those seekers now have one less option.

Apparently, Target Corporation had one costume that was just too much for people. The costume which was apparently in the stores had the following things: orange jumpsuit, alien head and a green card. I’m no genius, but how does this pass muster the first time. This is incredible. I certainly don’t blame Target, yet I still have to think someone might just thought that an illegal alien wouldn’t offend anyone. Who knows?

Tell me about your craziest and most awesomely humiliating costume!



Death of a Palm Pre

Hello IGWers:

You’ll have to check out what happens when the Palm Pre collides with beer.
Amusement ensues.


Weighing Pumpkins

Hello IGWers:

When did pumpkin weighing become such a huge sport? Does it have any legs during the off-season or does pumpkin weighing only count in October. It seems like it has come out of nowhere to capture at least the news media’s attention. I guess 1600-1700 lb. pumpkins seem to capture the imagination at least for a couple of seconds.

However, do they behemoths have names? I just don’t know that the pumpkin farmers have with these overly large vegetables.

To each his own!


Marge Simpson Playboy?

Hello Innovation Gone Wrong Readers:

Tell me something. How does Marge Simpson end up on the cover of Playboy. I saw this in the news recently.
I didn’t really know what to say. Playboy is a world of hurt financially. Will cartoons drive back the viewers? I guess we have to wait and see. I have great respect for the 20 year run of the Simpsons, but did they really need to cross over into porn to make a point?

To more innovation gone wrong!
