The outbreak of the Ebola virus has devastated large swaths of West Africa. Over 4000 people have died. Now the disease has reached our shores, though the possibility of it spreading to the general population is very remote it is still pretty scary. All of this coincided with the coming of Halloween. It was inevitable that there would be Ebola doctor hazmat suits as Halloween costumes. But a sexy Ebola nurse? Why yes! After all, we know that women must be "sexy ___" and not just "___". Forget for a second that since large sections of the costume are missing that they would be poor protection against the virus. But I guess that's not the point is it. Some would say that this is in bad taste. Those people would be right.
I've come to believe that Halloween, which used to be my favorite holiday, now brings out the worst in us as a species. I hope anyone that wears this doesn't think it will protect against anything.
